    We regard to the possibility of the Elan appearing in a Zombie movie, I cleaned it up a bit and threw a coat of rattle can black matt over it. It looks more presentable and has the added bonus of showing up the imperfections still to be dealt with (lots).

    Hi. I am still here but the last year has been somewhat different. I went mad on the car in the first lockdown and suffered car modding burnout. Around that time my son asked if he could convert the bay in the barn, that the Elan used to live in before I built a new garage, into a gym as the one...
