  1. If you want real detail and history about the Evora, then you won't get any more accurate than this...

  2. I posted some pics of the AZ-1 I imported as a project earlier in this thread. Here it is, the one on the right next to my other one, all nice and finished. This was a full resto, the only part I didnt totally dismantle was the gearbox.

  5. So we went to see the TVR yesterday, with the idea to drive her home if nothing catastrophic showed up on a short test drive. However, the seller couldn't get her to start... Not for lack of trying, we had to stop him or he would have kept starting until the starter motor gave in. She did fire a couple of times, but would die within seconds. So I'm thinking the problem is fuel related, the pump screaming like hell seems to confirm this. We did reach an agreement, at a reduced price. And I urged him not to try to start her anymore for fear of him bodging it up. I'll just go back with the traile

  8. Last Feb we agreed terms to buy our house. An electricity pole in the middle of the lawn was to be moved before exchange. Was scheduled for last may. We moved last June and today it finally got moved. Delayed almost exactly 12 months by COVID. The sellers will be happy too as there was a big retention being sat on until resolved.

  9. Its a snug fit, but no idea if it's actually stopping any smells yet. The car still isn't MOT'd and the windows are down in the garage at present so it isn't a very valid test yet 😆l

  10. I wasn’t going to post, but seeing as we are still moaning about councils. After 2 phone calls and an email today she got the message I wasn’t going to be quiet. Responded with the reason. 1) new roof would be further forward than the old flat roof. It won’t, the fascia will be in exactly the same place. 2) it will be further forward than the main roof. Given my comments about point 1 the following picture pretty much dispels point 2). She also says she is confident that planning permission would be viewed favourably. Told her I will submit but will appeal anyway. Let’s see if she changes

  11. Hello, I received my 4 carbon elements. The finish seems impeccable. But ... how do you install them ... If any of you can help me remove the Shifter top, the Airbag Cover, the Climate Control Surround and the Door Pulls that would be great! I can't wait to be able to install them and if I can do it myself without going through a garage I will be happy and can post pictures to you Carbon elements: Actual interior: Shu

  12. Hi all, Bought my first Lotus this weekend, a 1990 Turbo SE with 51.300km on the clock. Original Dutch car, totally original condition and FSH. Owner had her for 28 years and traded in for the last new Evora for sale in NL, even though he is in his late '70ies. Respect! He cared for the Esprit to such an extent that she still smells new. She will need to get used to being used - I take my cars all over Europe and she has not driven more than 2,000kms in the past 10 years. I'll have to wake her up a bit, methinks, and she will encounter this new phenomenon called "rain" at some poin

  13. All sorted. It was silly simple - I just didn't understand how it came together until I took it apart. What I didn't realize is that the compression fit collar is an NPT fitting that can be replaced by anything else that has an NPT thread - so it was just a matter of getting an NPT barb. One of the parts cars at our "race shop" already had the barb in its very-corroded tank. A couple new copper washers, a bit of a clean-up, & job done. (To be honest, I'm not sure if it's actually NPT - I got the barb out of the same spot on the parts car, so I knew it was the correct thread)
