Recycling , upcycling, reducing my carbon foot print, bodging,

The 8’s fuel filler flap lever and cable mounted somewhere near the original will open the boot lid

So..... one of the bad things about this build that is suddenly getting apparent..........

Stock Lotus trim parts are £££££££££

2 bits of steel that hold the 1/4 light glass in place ... LH and RH ..... £90+VAT

pffffttttt

dont even have a decent original as a pattern to make one from. bite the bullet on that one
