  1. Be nice to see all the lotus experts settling down and helping this guy move towards a successful outcome. Animosity not constructive. Look forward to more updates and a good final result. kind Regards Paul G

    Lotus Type 116

    And here’s mine!
  3. I got mine from Geoff at esprit engineering. kind Regards Paul Gibson
  4. That’s a very lovely paint job! Happy Christmas from sunny Southampton. Kind Regards Paul Gibson
  5. Mines 4.5 metres long I think. It’s tight but goes in ok. There are some cheaper versions on eBay, but the machine mart one is white on the interior which makes it pleasantly light to work in. kind Regards Paul May have missed the point in my reply! yes, for maximum access, go for the wider version. kind Regards Paul
  6. Hi Geert I've had the Clarke’s garage for two years now. Any body looking to buy one, look out for one of their vat free days to save a bit of money. Kind Regards Paul
  7. I use one of the Machine Mart garages they come with ground anchors which need to be correctly fitted. It has survived the weather here by the sea in Southampton. Kind Regards Paul
  8. I may be wrong but your first picture appears to show the cable nipple is not correctly installed in the lever cup? Which would give you one sided hand Braking! Just worth a check. kind Regards Paul
  9. Just a slight thought! Are the correct profile tyres fitted? They will influence the ride height. kind Regards Paul
  10. Just a silly point. In my S4 the heater fan must be running before the aircon will energise. Just in case. Probably a red herring! kind Regards Paul

  12. Geoff at Esprit Engineering can sort all these issues for u. Based at Downton nor Salisbury. 07973404930. honest guy, well regarded by all. kind Regards Paul Gibson
  13. For what it's worth, I got set to do this job, cut the carpet etc.. Then I decided to just try tightening the nut and bolt at each location. No guarantees but in my case it fixed the problem. My good lady wife held the spanner in the cabin whilst I grovelled at the other end. This may be worth a try as it involves so little time! kind Regards Paul
  14. Probably not your problem but if both back wheels are off the ground and you turn one with the intention of rotating the engine - the other wheel will spin unless you restrain it and the engine will not rotate. Just a thought?! Gibbie
  15. Just another quiet vote for Geoff at esprit engineering. He's honest, knowledgable and always willing to help. Gibbie
