Lotus S4 chassis problems

 I am in Spain and in the process of restoration my Lotus Seven S4 I discovered the car had a front crash in the past and the front box section was repaired not very good, do you know if it's being sold anywhere the front box section??, if not I will need to do a hard  repairing job. The full chassis except the front box section is perfect and I cannot consider a full chassis replacing by the cost of a new chassis and the transport to Spain.

 

Regards from the south of Spain, David.

Hi David

You have probably read all the articles on the S4 in the archive (including the profile of you and pictures of your S4)?  John Watson's article on S4 restoration from April 2006 may be the most helpful.

Sadly resources for the S4 are much fewer than for S3.

Thank you very much Stephen, I was reading articles in the archive, but I didn't find John Watson's one, it's really interesting.

I wrote two weeks ago to the address bruce@archmotor.co.uk and info@archmotor.co.uk, and I had no answer. My spoken English is not good enough to have a fluent phone conversation about technical things, this is why I prefer to write them than to call them. Do you know if the company Arch Motors is open??.

Regards, David.

Yes. Arch is certainly in business.

Reply to #1 David, I see you have now had a reply from Phil Robinson (he copied me in to it).  Shame about the potential wait until October
