Where can I get a nose cone for a Series 2, Lotus 7?


Recommended Posts

I have a restored Series 2 Chassis (thankyou Nathen Down) and have now discovered that the nose cone that came with the project is incorrect. Any ideas where I could source the correct nose cone? I understand (per Josh Robbins) that the correct nose cone depends on the bonnet length as the rear nosecone shelf has 2 different lengths available. My bonnet length is 37.5 inches.

I have a new spare nosecone that I bought years ago and have never used. If you can give me some measurements of what you have and what you are looking for I'll check it to see if it is what you are looking for. It's yellow like in your photo and looks similar. It measures about 26 inches from front to the back of the shelf, 24" from the front to the front of the shelf.

All S2 Sevens had a short bonnet that covered the thermostat housing and a longer top section of the nose.. All Caterhams had a longer bonnet, allowing access to the thermostat housing and a shorter top section of the nose.
