  1. That is some serious work, Andrae! Well done. Really looking forward to follow your work. Kind regards, Jacques
  2. You certainly won't regret the hi-temp ones. And take a set for between the manifold and the turbo as well. The normal ones are darker and not so hi-temp. resistant. It's the light grey that are. But they are clearly described on pages from those who sell them. Linky: or: or: for the over seas gu
  3. I used hi-temp. K-nuts. No need for anything else and they won't move unless worked on. As they are a bit smaller, it also leaves a bit more room for working on them, if the manifold have to be removed some day. Very good solution. Kind regards, Jacques
  4. Well, basically I agree, but it would take some very serious tests to diagnose the condition of the liver etc. to determine the level of waste toxins in the body and the effecienct of organs etc. Anyway, I very much agree with you that there seems to bea "club" of colleagues who all compete for having the most days off, all paid and now worries. In fact most of these people have been seriously unhealthy for many years, completely avoid any and all talks about their increasingly bad health. They all very well know this, and they suffer. Then there is a group of people, who seems to think t
  5. After 10 years of working in Danske Bank's HQ being responsible for develoiping and implementing the first pilotproject of electronic trading with bonds, shares, futures etc. as well as teaching computer programmes, I resigned myself as I wanted to do something else being tired of making money (in no way rich at all), so after a computer education, a bank education, studying English, German and French for 3 years (all of it long gone ), I then took an education as A paedagog (I don't think you have something similar - it's a mix of teacher, socialworker and taking care of children etc). I ha
  6. Ha ha! Well, it's not even far from true So please excuse me if I cannot join the talk about current or past tv-series, new movies or the like, because I was at job at the time. Sorry. Cheers, Jacques
  7. I can add to what I wrote exactly one year ago, that I have observed the following phenomenon: that when the first lock down came in Denmark, I was chosen to be in the frontline, because I'm nearly never ever ill. But all my obese colleagues (many) was ordered to stay home and enjoy 6 weeks on their couch (eating). For free. Then, now at the end of 2020 right before Christmas, and well into 2021, we had the next serious lock down, and everyone, or nearly, staying home, I am still healthy and ordered to go to job every day to take care of other people's children and teaching. This has now
  8. Well, I supported Brexit by buying a lot of books from you guys some time in November, as noone here seems to care write them in Danish anymore, now that everything seems to be forced into being English language. Even after Brexit. So that's one legacy... Only problem is, that they were stuck in the gigantic truck jam at Dover, so they arrived well after Christmas. Oh well, things suddenly seems to be as they always were. I guess we'll all survive after all, despite the black, dark, doomsday prophecies. Kind regards, Jacques
  9. Thanks for bringing that up. THe article gives a more thorough view on how it's counted. Certainly not very scientific, I'd say. Anyway, stay safe! Kind regards, Jacques
  10. I jsut read on (official news in Denmark), that 80.000 people have died related with covid-19 during the last 28days. I looked it up on BBC News, here: Is that true? Should that be believed? 80.000 people in 28 days in the UK alone? Could someone please confirm or shoot that info down, please? God help us all, if that is true. Kind regards, Jacques
  11. Thanks John! Maybe someone out there have a picture of said arangement? Kind regards, Jacques
  12. Yes it is. That means that the state can vote on raising taxes without the consent of the voters. And interest groups does not have to agree with their members. Kind regards, Jacques
  13. Hello all, Looking at interrior bits I stumbled over this part number, which is describe as a "lid" for compact disc pocket. I don't think I've ever seen such an item before. Could someone please describe what it its,as possibly a picture of it? On my SE 1990, there's a sewn on semi-elastic pocket that is attatched to the front of the compartment between the two seats. But a lid? No idea what it is. CAn itbe a lid that close off the compartment for intrusion, hiding, privacy? Kind regards, Jacques
  14. Hi Damien, Not sure I understand your comment. Would you care to widen it further? I have plenty of friends and also in general people who own classic cars and classic performance cars. What does that have to do with 1 meter above sea level? I don't know anyone here living in such conditions, apart from a special nature area in south west Jylland, where there is a tide. Only sheep's there. Anyway, in Denmark, there is not the tradition to exhibit your car(-s) on coffee meetings and give big prizes, diplomas etc. Instead we enjoy them at each our home and drive them when roa
  15. I for one, will buy both. For sure! And any other Esprit they may make. Kind regards, jacques
  16. That's a boring article to say the least. It brings nothing new, it repeats all what all of the others have said and repeats all the incorrectness that the same others have repeated for years. Bad journalism, errors and not worth reading in my humble view. Just because more people repeat errors that others have said, doesn't make them true. Clearly Chris Rowlands have the knowledge of something, but this is not it, but instead displays someone who want to play smart and knowledgable into watches, sportscars etc. But is not. Sigh... Waste of time. Kind regards, Jacques
  17. Hi Bibs, Tried that, but my pocket camera looks like s..t indoor in neon lightning. So please wait for a blue skies day. No fuel on the car now, so hard to push uphill into the garage, certainly so as there's snow and ice outside and trying to turn those narrow 315 tires. Meanwhile at the mancave, I undid the fuelhoses and the fueltube. Need to bringmore tools to undo the rubber flaps, the ring clamps and the rivets holding them in place - 8 in total. Guess' I am officially now a rivet counter ;( Kind regards, Jacques
  18. All right, so I've finished polishing Little Red Riding Hood. After last time, I polished the whole car with "fine" and then again the whole caar with "super fine". Looks very good. Apart from deeper scratches, dings and other normal damages to paint. A complete polishing of the car won't make those go away. That's a job with other materials and techniques. I'll try that out later. Then I rinsed the car for left overs of polish, all new microfiber rags, and then waxed the whole car with Audotglym UHD hard wax. Compared to the precious one, the HD wax, this one ie much easier to apply and
  19. Ha ha! Thanks. But I really didn't read too much about it. Or at least only some various short ones. And some youtubing. It's quite simple, just takes a while to do. So mostly using logic to figure it out. I still want to cornerweigh, so I must buy a set from the USA to use, as no one here have any, or they tripple the price. I made a simple A4 paper with values in the Lego system, so it's easier to remember and fill out. Right now I just spent 4 hours yesterday and 6 more hours today, polishing little Red Riding Hood. I now passed the coarse stage and the medium stage. I miss to do the f
  20. Nope, it's called stability Any other old car would have deteriorated completely in the meantime. Giniw: maybe because it said "racingfluid" or " high temp resistance" or whatever on the bottle. It's not the first time someone educated does something uneducated. I can think of a few persons here I'd rather trust my car, than those Lotus workshops... Or do it myself Cheers, and take car(-e)! Jacques
  21. So did I, minus the front headlamps. Cheers, Jacques
  22. Ha ha! Yes, that's the most unfortunate and most worrying aspect of it. And we surely wouldn't want that would we? What to do? Either don't drive home in the night... Or get up early in the morning, before there's too much traffic on the roads, and take a good long detour through the best kept secret back roads. Hmmm... I think I've got it. I just don't use the Esprit through the most dark and short Winter days. I'll take those long Summer evenings any day - good light till' half past 10 in the evening. That should do it. Hmmm... I wonder if one could make a set which actually looks
  23. And I may add, that Barry and I will contribute by paying Right Barry? Cheers
  24. I can testidy to the Radinox. Did them myself and they are very strong and mirror like at all times. No need to polish. 3-4 tiems a year, I take a small microfiber clotha dn wipe them down. Takes a minute or so per wheel. Easy peasy, when I'm used to split BBS RS001 that takes two three days per wheel every second month. Jacques
