My intro and pics here https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f221...-coast-329569/
Got a 91 Elan M100, 106k miles, needs some TLC and paint job, window regulators are main thing, traded a 2004 Chrysler Crossfire for it. PO seems to have ADD like me, took door panels off and windows out before he found regulators, a headlight motor needs bolting back up, a lot of parts and pieces disassembled. It sat for a while and got dirty, the clear coat is peeling, had been rear ended and bumper repaired but still some small FG damage in trunk floor and rear quarters. Brakes are real weak but it drove on my trailer, has aftermarket muffler, AC is inop.
So far I cleaned it with a little soap and water, the water was so black. I jacked the front end up and pulled the wheels, ordered new pads, I sanded on the clear coat a few nights ago, fired it up for a while to listen to it, need to put some front brakes on it and start driving it, can't wait, it was a barn find that found me. It came with the original wheels, I like them better than the 10 spoke wheels that are on it, although they might make good track wheels. Another night I found an aluminum top/hood weatherstrip bar that was bent, took a bit to straighten it out and epoxy it to the metal shim bar for reinforcement, then bolt it back to the top frame.
Last night I tested the pop up headlights, I had assembled the passenger side the night before, but it didn't pop up. There are a few rodent chewed wires behind the center console/dash that I can see and touch through the ashtray hole, but not enough room to strip the wires, looks like the PO was trying to pull the AC/heat control to gain better access, the wires look the same colors as the ones going to the headlight. Some pics of it the PO sent me, and two I took, time flies when you're in the garage
