  1. These look great @PaulM what is the difference between machining and diamond cut? Both obviously involve taking material off the surface on a lathe. Any pics of the fronts? Lex.
  2. First photo I’ve seen of the interior of 10929 at Miami.
  3. Hi Glen, SJ Sportscars is doing all the work so I don't have first hand experience at removing the body. If you start a thread in the restorations section I'm sure people will be along to help. The dash will look something like this below when removed. Keep in mind your car would have had a ruched leather interior, something very difficult to re-produce. It looks like all the original leather has been replaced in your car. It may be easier to find a complete interior as it looks like everything needs replacing..but of course there are lots of subtle differences between an early car like yours and and an 82 and onwards car. It depends on how far you want to take it and how much money you plan to sink into it.
  4. I mean the Enzo’s challenge to Chapman..
  5. Hi @Glen yes body is off chassis, I think in tour situation it would be the best thing to do.
  6. @Glen this is 10953 from 1980 going back together at the moment. Another L25 Monaco white (with brown) and all Essex bits from factory.
  7. @Glen have you received the certificate from Lotus yet?
  8. All I can say is accept the lock downs, we have been strict here in Australia and we have had many weeks now with 0 locally transmitted cases.
  9. Still trying to find out about 10954 above...looks like it still exists.
  10. Thanks for these pics @Glen The interior has had a complete re-trim at some point so it will be interesting to know what the original leather colour was. On an early white car it would be either red or brown leather. Interestingly, 10310 (red) was delivered to Bahrain from new, perhaps you have some idea where it is or will come across it in your restoration travels. 10311 was white with brown and delivered to Switzerland. The car before yours 10308 is LHD Essex 008. Sold to Italy, now in Germany.
  11. Wonderful to put another piece of the dry sump puzzle together. Interesting if this was in fact a white with brown car and and yes would be great to know if it has an engine and also what kind of condition the interior is in @Glen
  12. managed to find a 1980 factory white/brown/comps/roof stereo.
