  1. Hi Dave,my Lotus is a 1977 original S1,it,s first registration was 600LOT and it was the Bell & Coalvil turbo development car( it had the turbo removed but you can see by the cut outs in the body where it was fitted) . The interior is in magnolia leather which I had done approx 4 yrs ago,it was quite expensive ,so you can see I look after it a lot.the original was brown & beige,it was rotten.I use the car nearly every day thus I wanted an interior that was up to date and I would enjoy.Paul G

  13. Hi,I have completed a part restoration on an X180 Turbo.Now that it has been MOT'd I seem to have a slight metallic whine fron the gear box,but only when you take your foot off the throttle and I have no whine in fifth at all? The linkage is new but the cables are old and the gear change is the worst I have ever come accross.I have a gut feeling that it is out of ajdustment.Any comments? Thanks Paul.

  17. Hi ,getting on quite well with my X180 restoration.I am nearly ready to fire her up but I have come across more snags,firstly I am connecting up all the electronics if I had taken them apart it would be no problem,but I did not.There five sets or clusters of connections from the boot panel that join to the corresponding set on the drivers side naer the rear wheel, I can only find four connectors.The one that is not there is the twin purple T shaped connector ( which is the Longest) I have been told that it around the purge pump,could it be redundant on this model,believe you me I have looked
  18. Hi, I have an Esprit X180 for restoration. I have two problems to sort out,firstly the starter motor disengages but will not switch off ,help. Paul.
  19. I now know why my brake cables will not fit the rear brakes on my X180,they are not the original ones they are brembo,the cables fit forward rather than aft,therefore the the short cable now fits on the long side no problem.Does anybody know if cables can be shortned,if this is possible then I will be OK,if not Iam knackerd?Secondly in my effort to fit the cables I have squeezed one of the hand brake calipers closed and now it only return to half it's position.the brakes are new ,I have no details of the interoir of the brakes and I do not want to brake them.Any help would be greatly apprecia
