Lotus Seven S4 Restoration: Rolling Chassis

Module by: Andrew R. Barron. E-mail the author

Once both the front and rear suspension components were attached to the chassis temporary wheels and tires were mounted ((Reference)). For ease of movement, transportation wheels with narrow tires were fitted. These are usually used when a Lotus Type 61 Formula Ford is being transported. (Reference)(Reference) show various views of the rolling chassis.

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
