Check out this vintage Lotus Elan! After a major crash at Leguna Seca, owner John Baird brought it to us for repair. We fabricated parts and rebuilt the back of the car, the trunk, and, the front and rear suspensions. We made a set of headers, and then repaired the body and flaring. With the new paint  scheme we applied, it’s nearly ready for thge race track!” - Joe Carr
