I’ve been busy on another project that has been in my garage for 30 years.
I put the Elky on hold again until lately and finished the exhaust system and added a new Rochester carb.
November is when the registration is due so I’ll be pushing to get the instruments and ac working.
The lower pic is my 3 year restoration.

Thanks guys! The Elky and the lotus Europa
Body line are a bit the same . But handling is completely different and so is the perspective.

With the temps coming down below 90f I’ll work on the charging up the ac system that is still holding vacuum pressure. The Elky needed the carb and exhaust first before the ac. I call it getting the bugs out. Secondaries still need to be setup also.
My speedometer needle was broken off and the tach pegged at 6000 or higher. I’ve been searching eBay for years trying to get a affordable set.

The little car is a Lotus Europa.
