    Another item that i had made was the window handle knobs and the dash knobs. It seems these are
    quite unique as i have had Ellena owners looking for these for years to no avail. Several of mine were cracked
    thus being floppy on the handles. Additionally some of my dash knobs were missing. Each car takes 2 large knobs for the
    windows and 4 small knobs on the dash. I took the best ones i could find, refinished them to fill cracks etc and sent them off
    to have molds made. Today i received them back . Obviously i made more that what i needed in an effort to recoup the
    cost of making them. They used these on some Boano's, Ellena's for sure across the production and TDF used them as well.

    Dick was in the Lime Rock pits a few years back, hanging out, no shirt, shooting the ****. He's pure old school NART!

    One item that i have been looking for has been the Ellena Seats. Well with no success worldwide - the time came where i had to
    make a decision on what to do - thus I'm going to make new seats. With help from 3 different people, I have been able to get measurements to duplicate the seats. One person and I exchanged some parts and i received a set of seat springs.

    They look amazing - in the mean time we are bending tubes to make the frames for the springs.
