  1. A copy of part of my invoice, should have a picture with the original plates somewhere..maybe... Neil
  2. There is a grub screw that holds the switch part in the key cylinder part...does this make sense. Remove the switch and you can start with a screw driver Ideally best to replace the faulty part Neil
  3. Bernard, The whole body has a lip. The top half of the shell is bonded to the bottom half, and this creates the "lip". The door outer shell is a signle sheet of GRP, so a carrier is rivetted to the doos skin, this allows the trim strip to be fitted. In the 80's many car had the "lip" ground away, with sometimes catastophic results, as the top and bottom halfs are not bonded together as strongly. hope this helps Neil ake a look at the top half of an Esprit
  4. Ooops, I stand corrected...time for new specs. However I do not understand using CF for the airbox. It does not save much weight, and is not structural. Still, nice box N.
  5. Hi , I doubt it is carbon fibre, just standard glas fibre, with insulation layer on the outside. Neil

  7. Roland Thanks, only just saw the post Neil
  8. Anonymous quote from May 2014... "yes - I've changed the chassis for a 2nd hand galvanised one which has a chassis number stamped at the front off side just rear of the front suspension mounting point. I'm not sure what is actually original on this car now - even the wheels show signs of being bought later." Then we can debate, chassis vs space frame vs subframe Or Elite; Eclat, vs Seven; 11; 23 vs Elise; Exige Neil
  9. Hi, with some luck, the chassis number hard stamped, close the the steering universal joint. Neil
  10. Hi electronic ignition is good Swirl pot appears to be incorrectly plumbed ! brake master cylinder is strange, but appears to have a hyraulic clutch . radio is original ventilation controls have been modified trim, you mentionned Looks like a nice car, and A04 is the best colour Neil
  11. Cool to see the Dell ortos still with the anti tamper fitted Your light relay on the right hand side can be slipped back on to its mount. The pre-heating of the manifolds re fitted. one of the jubilee clips removed from the thermostat. re-route choke cable. Is the engine running, looks like alternator is spinning ? N.
  12. How did the bonnet and grill come into contact with the timing belt ? Very nice car Neil
