Nice dash, did you make it yourself?

My brother in law made it. Drew it up in a CAD program, laser cut it, then bonded a woodgrain veneer to it. It is dusty in the picture but it looks great when it's cleaned up. i have some high res pictures but this forum limits the size to 1000kb.

Question regarding sound deadening: Do many people add this to their Europa's to reduce road noise? I have been looking at products such as Dynamat. While the interior is stripped bare i was thinking of doing it but i have some concerns about adding the bulkiness under the carpet and also the additional weight it will add to the car overall.

Plans for this car is to basically use it for weekend drives and maybe the odd hill climb event. (re: deadening question)

Hi Andreas,

I know this car and I dealt with the previous owner Matt Gault. I have 30 years of S2 ownership experience, so I should be able to help with just about everything. I'm in South Melbourne,

Cheers

Hi Richard, thanks very much for the reply. Matt is my brother in law. I bought the car from him. He will hopefully help me a bit along the way but i'll definitely contact you for some pointers. cheers

My front indicator lenses (blinkers) are pretty scratched and have stress cracks in them. Where is the best place to source a pair of Lucas replacements? eBay?

I would definitely give eBay a try. I found one in the states just now. You'd be surprised what you find when you google (I actually use DuckDuckGo) the Lotus part number: A036M6372Z

Bit of an update and some pictures. I have been cleaning and cataloging all the removed parts. Sorting through what needs replacing and what can be restored. I need to make a new closing plate cover (as this one is quite rusted). Also the battery tray will need blasting and assessing on its condition.
I found some old Polaroid photos of the engine bay (these were stuffed behind the passenger seat). I also found an old Philip Island (race track here in Victoria, Australia) track day pass from January 1973!

Welcome Andreas.
  The dash is gorgeous. What choice veneer name is that?

Wow lotus 47 reply Great mentor there . I’ve read some of his articles on engines. Good read .

  I pickup my lens up on eBay about 38.00
 
   I have a quick question about the dash panel support (see pic)
Under window . Can you post a picture of that view because
I cut it off years ago to mod a Mazda dash in! Now reinstalling
And wondering if it is stepped down or flush.
Thanks
Dakazman
