Maden Voyage in Elite

I took delivery of the Elite a few days ago and after checking fluids and taking a peek at the timing belt(it appears to be new)I took her for a spin.
She did what a Lotus is know to do, broke down.
Not really a break down but the lower radiator hose was leaking big time so I turned around and went home.
I will be going through the inspection list provided by a couple of owners and making a parts list soon so I can order everything I need at once. I will be changing alot of hoses for peice of mind.
The seller didnt do a very good job of describing the car, but in a good way.
Car was described as a 4 speed and its a 5 and did not mention AC which it has.

I wish I could make a parts list of everything I need for a car, any car!

You have my admiration and prayers.

Indeed, pictures would be great, but not neccessarily of the road underneath her. We have seen that before

Hi Sliser172

Could you please share the maintenance and parts lists and any further information about the Elite 75 that you have collected since your ownership?

I'm going to view and testdrive such a model tomorrow. Any help much appreciated, Thanks!
