  1. In anticipation of the onset of winter and the impending Covid lockdown in this part of Scotland, our old girl Alaska has been 'fur-load', .
  2. I wasn’t allowed to say anything until today, but it's now okay for me to share that I have volunteered for the Covid-19 vaccine trials that a local Hospital are running in partnership with Pfizer. It's important that we all do our part to beat this virus. The vaccine is the one that has been developed in Russia. I received my first dose this morning 06:20 am, and I wanted to let you all know that it’s completely safe, with иo side effects whatsoeveя, and that I feelshκι я чувю себя немного стрно и я думю, что вытл осные уши. чувству себя немго страом.
  3. My wing was originally from Lotus Motorsport (purchased when they were selling-off their surplus stock at a Brands Hatch Lotus Festival several years back), is in GRP rather than CF, has the end plates bolted on as per the DeRoure diagram (which for me was great as it made the application of the two-tone paint job so much easier for my local bodyshop), and had no high-level brake light which was something I addressed - story here:
  4. Well, since my post above about my 'considerate' neighbour having his concrete driveway ripped-up we have been waiting with baited breath for the next installment, with a week of inclement weather being in our favour. Unfortunately, our luck has run out. It's been relatively rain-free for the past 48 hours so at 8 o'clock sharp this morning, less than an hour after I had put my head down on the pillow, all hell broke loose again. A quick glance past the side of the black-out blind confirmed my worst fears - he's having monoblock paving laid. Not in nice easy straight lines though,
  5. Voted. I couldn't help myself, the glorified Beetle seemed so unloved, Only kidding, .
  6. My 'neighbour from hell' is at it again, . Ever since he retired (at the age of 50 I might add - nice for some) at the start of the year, not a month has gone past without some project or other taking place and all of them seem to involve lots of noise at close quarters to our house. I came in from nightshift at 6 this morning and went to bed about 7.30 only to be rudely awakened an hour later by a jack-hammer. Seems he's decided that his textured concrete driveway has got to go and so the contractors are in digging it up. All this is taking place barely 15 feet from my bedroom wind
  7. Yep, mine loses about 10 minutes a month. The reset function no longer works either (it allows the hours to be changed but not the minutes) so I've simply given up bothering about it as the time is displayed on the ICE screen anyway.
  8. I had a 'by invitation only' viewing today at the new Scottish dealer, Parks of Hamilton. What can I say other than various slightly used body parts, such as a kidney, a lung and part of my liver, will be appearing for sale on Fleabay in due course, .
  9. Will be great to see you in your 44t we will make room.

      Unfortunately in the end, drivers' hours regulations forced me to go straight to my destination in Stoke-on-Trent. 😞

  10. Unfortunately, I'm working tomorrow. Come to think of it though, I am picking up my truck from Broughton so I could always swing around that way if there's room in the corner of the parking area to stash a 44-tonner?
  11. @Miguel on here does the ones at the rear of the arch (that secure the mudflaps) in high-grade stainless steel : https://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/75751-mud-flap-brackets/?tab=comments#comment-815636 . I don't think he does the bumper brackets yet (I stand to be corrected on this) but I'm sure if enough of us show an interest he might add them to his 'catalogue' if he hasn't already done so. I for one would be up for a set as I'm shortly hoping to replace my front bumper with an aftermarket 'upgrade' and I know from what I saw the last time I had the bumper removed, the OE brack
  12. @Sbfdave Yesterday afternoon, around 4-ish, northbound on the M6 just before Southwaite. Glad to see that you and/or Sharon were showing that orange upstart from Woking ( @Andrew C ) a clean pair of rear tyres, . I was headed south but didn't wave as I was in my .
  13. I blame you @mik ! Since reading your post above, I spent the rest of the weekend looking for a decent SD1 Vitesse to add to my 'collection'. Not found one yet but I'm sure there's one out there with my name on it. My only regret is that I should never have sold the cracker of an example I owned in the mid to late 80s, .
  14. Last night, around 6-ish - Vivid Green Exige S3 northbound just before J6, Hamilton.
  15. According to the V5 for mine, a standard NA as it leaves the factory puts out 87dB(A) static and 75dB(A) drive-by at 3750rpm - I think mine now with a full 2bular and a CAI might be just a tad more, . I wouldn't have thought an 'S' would be that much different so take along your registration certificate and if they question your noise output, just point to Section U and say that their noise meters must be wrong, .
