Two extras Ariel did not make.

Mobile phone charger and side panel door to flood the carb for starting on a cold day.

Well done Brian, When you take into consideration the number of holes that have been cut into nearside Leader side panels by owners to access the carb fuel tickler it makes you wonder why Ariel didn't do this from the outset. I also wonder whether had you mentioned to Vale Page a Mobile charger point would it have meant anything to him?, nevertheless it was still forward thinking at the time to fit the plug in sockets for the inspection lamp...Jess

That side panel door looks great!

Hello, The phone charger is very useful on camp sites, it saves having to find a mains socket. The power outlets are useful -- forward thinking on Ariels part but intended as a light hearted comment.

The side panels are fibre glass so easy to work on and not cutting up original parts. The other side panel is in two parts so easy to take the top part off to adjust the carb or clutch. You can see the bottom part of the other side on the 270 Leader.
