  1. Thanks old chap! It's a bit grim, feels like having sunburn all over that won't go away โ˜น๏ธ
  2. Unfortunately I am not allowed out to play at the moment. I had my COVID booster and have now come down with Shingles! I thought only old people got it.......oh yeah ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚
  3. The flow lock is to stop the whole fuel tank draining into the carbs if you're parked on a slope. You could try a positive wire from the battery to the flow lock to see if it opens and/or make sure if it has a good earth. New valves are available as electric solenoid valves on ebay.
  4. Sorry I have been a bit quiet on here guy's, time just seems to have flown this summer. I have just uncovered the elite from its resting place to have a go at the corroded wiring loom and try to get the headlights popping up and down reliably again. I re-bonded the windshield so hopefully watertight for the winter! October is looking good for a meeting, which pub are we going to?
  5. I was coming but got so engrossed in pulping apples for my homebrew cider that it was dark before I realised! ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ
  6. Sorry to hear that must have been staring too hard at the Emira that made your retina pop out!
  7. Well I threw my hat in the ring with an offer, but unfortunately ยฃ250 wasn't enough! ๐Ÿ˜‚
  8. Dang it Tony! I was relying on leaving it at your barn for a couple of years๐Ÿ˜
  9. Quite pricey for the amount of work required but I haven't seen a JPS one for restoration for some time. Left hand drive, Stromberg carbs, sun roof cut in it, engine totally stripped and missing parts......well worth ยฃ15,000 .... Hmmm not sure๐Ÿค”
  10. Looking at a supposed JPS Esprit locally, what do people think?
  11. I love the Antiques road trip! I wonder if they would want to use an old desert Land rover? ๐Ÿ˜‚
  12. Shall we start a new thread for 2021?
  13. Just wanted to say a quick thank you to Kev for generously buying the drinks๐Ÿ˜Š It was lovely to sit and chat about absolutely nothing in particular with good company๐Ÿ‘
  14. Could it be a Sprint which was fitted with 13" wheels and smaller elan brakes?
  15. I was thinking more along the lines of an intimate candle lit dinner for two at the Concord club ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜˜
  16. Well I do like the graphics down the side ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚
  17. I was tempted to go and have a look but I had a look at the past MOT's on the DVLA site and it may need some engine work. High hydrocarbon emissions and over 105,000 miles plus a respray makes it a bit of a project. On the other hand, full leather and an SE...
  18. I was thinking of pointing him in the direction of an Evora or one of the new cars coming out but I don't know enough about them.
  19. I have a friend who owns a Porsche 991.2gts and is looking for a replacement, he is considered a Ferrari f355, is there a Lotus equivalent that I can point him to? And why?
  20. I think it was probably within my budget! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  21. Lotus Elite racing right up until it's end of life recycling๐Ÿ˜‚ I can't see many Toyota Prius lasting that long..
  22. It's a lie! I never touched her๐Ÿ˜ the sheep at Romsey-๐Ÿคซ
  23. Lovely evening gents and not too cold, Tony and I got a bit engrossed in talking elan though. Thanks for the sherry Dave, I knew an old sailor would come up trumps!....that sounds like the start of a limerick
