  1. Past hour
  2. Thanks, hopefully will now be fine, the dealer didn’t tell me about the hidden bolts just the seven visible ones
  3. Today
  4. If you get a bolt that doesn’t want to budge then one of these is your best friend to loosen that first bit before using a normal screwdriver https://www.screwfix.com/p/magnusson-adjustable-wrench-8/3347v
  5. SCCFE33CXVHF65160 1997 Esprit V8 Calypso Red Fort Mill, SC, USA Mine made a boat trip early in it's life, but from the other pond. First registered owner was in Honolulu, HI before it made it to the mainland.
  6. Working on ride height today - something that always niggled me. The front splitter will need to be raised a couple of cm, but that will be taken care of when the front bumper comes off.
  7. Sorry if reviving this post is not appropriate, but think I might have the same issue as the OP. Went for a drive today, then all of a sudden high pitched squealing, smoke from the engine bay and then it cut out. I have been recovered home as its Easter weekend, but the AA will be collecting it to take to Lotus Silverstone on Tuesday. Whats interesting is, I had my 3 year service 139 miles ago, so out of warranty by 4 months now, but when I took it in I said my aircon wasnt working, and apparently it was out of aircon fluid, so they sorted it, but told me to always leave aircon on to avoid future issues. So if this is the same issue, and with such little mileage, I hope I have chances of fixing as a good will gesture. Car has only done 8000 miles.
  8. It’s a very lovely Ford Capri you’ve got
  9. @Bibs do you need pictures of the VIN and the car to proceed or has my time on the forum been enough to convince someone I do own this car?
  10. They are safety hex I just went and got this set https://www.toolstation.com/draper-security-bit-set/p52910?utm_source=googleshopping&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=googleshoppingfeed&gclid=Cj0KCQjw4-XlBRDuARIsAK96p3CbYbsnCs-7-6BkbbAdsqa6gxRTWhDEnImNrOO9E-PbGB9bonDZ0CUaAgWMEALw_wcB
  11. Hi, sure someone can help as I try to maximise the sunny weather what tool/size is required to remove the 2 large silver bolts which are visible once you remove the small pieces of side trim at the rear of the roof. Removed the 3 front bolts , 2 at the rear and the 2 side pieces and then hit a snag! thought they were normal star style but apparently not. TIA

  13. Not sure what else I can say Thomas, except what I said earlier. Hook up the four headlamps for main beam, and it’s simply astonishing. I wouldn’t say that if I didn’t believe it. I drive a brand new Ford, and the lights are better than that. Oh, and don’t go into those woods on foot, I have it on good authority that bears shit in them.
  14. Waze is by far the best sat navigation tool available... its brilliant.. and always 100% accurate with traffic and re routing.. mapo arsealways correct.. IMO of course
  15. Hi I cannot believe Im having major problems in getting a brake master cylinder overhaul kit for my Esprit s1. Ive been on the forums, and someone recommends getting one for a Range Rove however there is 1 seal missing. Another shows a kit but hasn't replied to my enquiry. (it is an old post).SJ. shows a kit but there seem to be stuff missing. Lotus Marques seems to show the full kit (see below) but doesn't list it for sale! Anybody got any ideas where I can get one from? Cheers.
  16. Welcome Conner, Like others here I'm up to my elbows in restoration work and will be sure to offer any advice I can as you request. Excellent car, but take good note of words of caution regarding engine operation! Cheers
  17. Right Neil, the upholsterer advised that aerosol can adhesive would fail in the heat of sunny days and showed me the product that would hold up, saying it was to be applied with a LP gun using a coarse spray tip. I will be tempted to have the stuff rolled onto the roof, leaving the fabricated headliner to be sprayed in turn. Any method chosen will demand careful masking and I presume the best point for installation would be after body paint but prior to interior assembly. Correct? Cheers
  18.

  19. How do those do for long distance? Most of the LED stuff I've seen has great fill and brightness in the foreground, but lose intensity for main beam throw. I'm well beyond rural, with black bears and moose going bump in the night, so the main beams are my focus. I'd love to convert, but would need to best the 100 watt halogen bulbs I'm running now before I did.
  20. There may be other "content providers" I prefer to follow but like the rest of us, I avidly devour all new Lotus content and Tyler (AKA "The Virgin") has enough experience with other supercars to winnow the wheat from chaff. Ignore a few of the (expected) minor errors and enjoy the rave.
