    I would not even entertain welding that as the crack is pretty much underway and looks like the rest would soon start to crack in other areas.

    Plenty of places on the web that will make you brand new ones,  but not many will do the rolled edges like the factory comps of the 80s,  but hardly noticable imo.

    May be worth getting 2 made as the machine will be set up for the first one anyway so makes sense.

    Thanks, would you recommend anyone? Couldn’t see any on eBay 

    Ebay also has plenty of used inner and outer barrels,  just put in compomotive and measure yours to see if you can find the same size :)


  2. sorry for the delay in adding the pics,,, as for the colour,, I am more than likely to go back to White,, as that's the colour it left the factory, and the red interior will go with it ;-),,,,, tho the other idea is an homage to the Essex,, by putting a chrome stripe in the gap of the two red stipes,,, not as bold as an Essex,, but an option



  3. £400 all in


    still unsure on the colour,,, everytime I see a pic of Hopos bronze esprit I drool,, :unworthy:  but I cant justify a full interior retrim


    white was its original colour, and works with the red interior (was originaly brown)


    keeping it blue is  the easiest option, but I just cant decide,, think I will be flipping a coin lol :help:

  4. going to email SJ,, to see what size theirs are,
    haven't put them back on that esprit yet, so no pics at the mo

    these  have them in all sizes


    just doubled checked mine again and theyre actualy 38mm, but going to order 37mm as the edge of the caps are a little worn,,,£14.92 with shipping from that site

  5. just had my wheels back from Renowheel in Bridgend, and they look a million times better,,, rims taken apart as they were leaking,, polished to mirror finish, new bolts all round, resealed.

    just need new lotus centre badges
