  1. And back to 4 wheels as I infiltrate the Italian car meet.........again.

  3. Yep all dog positions are fixed by the bolt in the shaft detent. The long fork which positions the reverse gear is one of the only things you can set. It can move rotationally and longditudinally. So all I need to do is mark the position on the reverse shaft. Loosen the bolts and rotate the dog to verticle. Then tighten the bolts. Job done! Maybe this explains why reverse is a problem for so many. The fork position may be wrong making reverse selection difficult or impossible. I suppose the bolts could come loose and slip over time. Especially with enthusiastic drivers heaving on the gearstic

  4. Was great to meet you Greg, and following you on track was just awesome! I'll add you to the provisional list, we're really close now, but as with all things with suppliers, it's the final hurdles which take the most time. We had to make an angle change on the first prototype (the one which was on my car at the trackday) which took some time, and I've now decided I want the ball joint to be totally solid. On the prototype it's connected using a screw thread, and with permanent thread lock, this should be solid, but I want to go that extra step and use a small bit of ali weld on the under

  5. I've got to breathe some life into the Guitar Chat forum on here! Luckily, I've just released a new solo album. That oughta do the trick. For the last couple of years I've written and recorded a whole heap of songs which has culminated in Traction Control - 12 tracks of instrumental goodness, unfettered by any commercial objectives or the like. Basically, I've recorded the album I wanted to record, without holding back or compromising. The joys of having music as a hobby. Anyhow, a lot of talented people helped me see this monster through to completion, and though it is a guit

  8. Cross-drilled disks are not really a good choice for active real use of the car, I'd always go for slotted brake disks in any performance car (and will do so once current stock disks are done). You've been lucky with this crack, fingers crossed for the luck to continue. Worth mentioning that holes and slots are normally not really for cooling, but for removal of the gasses from the face of the brake pad under hard use

  9. I don't think all is lost. I managed to fit a shim between the nut plate and the body with the fuel tank in place on my 84 turbo. If you look under the fuel tank there is a large 15cm hole in the bodywork under the tank where the fuel breather exits. You may be able to feel in here and get to the nut plate with your hands of a magnet on a stick. Failing that you can remove the engine bay trim that covers the fuel tank and get a magnet on a stick down this way. You should then be able to reach down the gap between the tank and and body to hold the nut plate in place whilst you screw

  10. Any chance you can access the base of the tank area through the bulkhead speaker hole? On the G cars (unlike the Stevens) the speaker sits in the tank void. You may have a speaker enclosure in the way if it's a factory fit speaker but worth a look.

  11. Yep, compression adjustment is on the remote reservoirs, not sure if you can get to the rebound adjusters

  12. So it is the rotation of the shaft on the long fork which is wrong, as the dog is a fixed position on the shaft.

  13. Let me know if you need any other angles - That box was in my car for last 5 years or so, just removed as 5th gear starting to whine a little

  14. Think I may have a solution! The manual says the notch in the operating dog on the reverse shaft should be verticle. I used the manual and a combination of the pictures I took to reassemble the box. I think the above picture shows the reverse shaft was incorrectly assembled. When I bought it as a non runner it was impossible to select reverse. I put it down to cable adjustment. Maybe it was put together wrong! As the rebuild emulates this it's also wrong. Just need a picture of a working box to confirm the notched operating dog is verticle and I have a relatively easy fix, fingers crossed! And

  15. The Eclat is back... almost! Rear diff oil seal, bearing and o-ring changed, thermostat replaced, and fans rewired. A few things I've noticed whilst I've been working on the electrics today. I suck at anything electrical. I mean, I really suck! know my crimping tool isn't the best but most of my woes today were caused by crimps just falling off as I was doing other things. The cooling panel, whilst stock and supposedly to redirect 1/3 of the airflow to the engine and 2/3 out of the vents, is a pain! It takes up so much space at the front of the engine bay. Until I've confirmed ev

  18. Didn't the Conservatives field their existing candidate who was prosecuted for an expenses scandal recently which caused the by-election? Doesn't seem like they were interested in winning the seat.

  21. I agree. At a minimum, have your solicitor send a strongly worded letter to both the contractor and your neighbours setting out your claim for the damages arising from unauthorised trespass and resultant damage to your property. In this case the damage to your place was deliberate, not merely negligent. The neighbours should be ultimately responsible or the actions of their contractors and I suspect that by this point the chance of a friendly neighbourhood relationship is well and truly down the shitter in any event.

  22. Sue the bastards for destruction of your property. They have and had no right to trample on your garden, they are just being lazy bastards and fuckwits. Any damage caused, plants lost they will have a duty to replace or repair, including your two 6 foot fence panels.

  23. Ok I picked up the car this afternoon, from Dan with the shifter installed, the forged wheels with cup 2 tyres, I will make a more extensive feedback tomorow, but bloody hell, this is good, there is no comparison for me, and for the price, it is worth it. It feels insane as a car now, not just a Lotus, but everything feels sooooo good ..... Oh, and the shifter looks awesome.

  26. Hi. I have the GRP gt lights. They are smoked so they are road legal. I ordered the following. Option 6, added reflectors, all four lights running lights, brake light outer set and fog lights on the inner set. These are fully road legal for the UK and are plenty bright enough. GRP quality and service has been excellent. Very easy to deal with abs OEM quality finish. Some before and after pictures.
