Hi, just got my E3 project with the aim to get it mechanically sorted and get back on the road. I will restore the bodywork at a later stage. The boot boards are missing so wondering if anyone has a spare set?

One of the Zeniths is flooding so hopefully not too much to get her running before going through the brakes.

I bought the other one on eBay so now should be able to get my LHD white E3 back on the road quite easily

Keith

The white one will be a match to the one I own (presently resting on the rotisserie). 

 Also white and LHD with a 2500 manual box and blue velour interior

Excellent! Mine has a 5 speed gearbox but I have not looked close enough to determine if original or an upgrade. They do look good in white.
 
Thanks Richard good to know others are out there

More photos to follow but got the white car on the ramp today and very impressed with the underside! Not sure if South of France car as very very solid with floor coating intact. I was going to fit new exhaust but noticed propshaft centre bearing is worn out and prop is sitting on the bracket. You have to remove the exhaust to get the prop out so will have to do that first.
 
Brake calipers to be changed out next and then UK registration.

keith - I sent my brake calipers away for replating in the original yellow pas finish - look like new!

The blue one has a rebuilt set fitted so going to swap them over just to keep costs down for now. I may end up restoring the blue E3 one day but screen frame rust is pretty bad.

Underside shot, will need a bit of surface rust removal and treatment before going into regular use on our roads
