Lotus Seven replica parts

Bert and Fay Curtis keep vintage racers on the track (and vintage GMC motorhomes on the road, but that's a different story) by supplying parts the original manufacturers don't offer any more. They have a full line of replica pre-Caterham Lotus Seven replacement parts, and since they don't have a web presence, we thought we'd go ahead and post their parts list and contact information for them; it's here FYI and YMMV, but they're my go-to folks when I'm looking for something that's sufficiently replica to get past tech inspection at a vintage race.

I am particularly fond of their part # SS-106 3" wider clamshell fenders and SS-15 wide clamshell and headlight mount. They're what I run when I want my car to look like a genuine Lotus Seven, a la the Prisoners of Petroleum car (shown below) we ran in Escape from Berkeley.

All Curtis parts are made to order. The best time to catch them is mid-afternoon through midnight; they're serious night owls. You can order their parts direct from...
