  1. I stuck this in mine - seems to meet all the requirements of the spec in the service notes.
  2. @The Lotus Position is your man for all things 'rescue greyhound' related - I've messaged him on FB.
  3. @C8RKH You and a powertool with a fast-rotating, sharp, blade - what could possibly go wrong? 😵 😃
  4. Apparently, BJ's 'deal' is a total betrayal of the Scottish fishing industry - that's the industry that will be protected under the new Fisheries Bill (now an Act) that the SNP voted against last month and the industry that they were fully prepared to (and had behind the scenes already offered to) hand back to the EU upon Scotland being admitted as an independent European country. 😠 Their hypocrisy knows no bounds!
  5. Our gorgeous old girl, Alaska, lost her fight with cancer and passed away suddenly, but peacefully, with her head in my lap at 3.55 this afternoon. RIP my beautiful angel, Alaska : 06 October 2006 to 18 December 2020. 😭
  6. Mine did too - rubbed a patch on each side right down to the undercoat in a matter of a few weeks. Fixed by attaching an adhesive rubber pad (the ones you get for the bottom of furniture legs) to each side.
  7. 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', .
  8. 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.
  9. 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:
  10. 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,
  11. Voted. I couldn't help myself, the glorified Beetle seemed so unloved, 😢 Only kidding, 😜.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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, 😜 .
  15. 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? 😜
  16. @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
  17. @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 🚛 .
  18. 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, 😢 .
  19. Last night, around 6-ish - Vivid Green Exige S3 northbound just before J6, Hamilton.
  20. 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, .
  21. I thought that I'd been reasonably polite, if a little sarcastic, on the first call that I answered but they got me at a bad time with the subsequent one. Having just finished an extended nightshift with barely 9 hours to get home, have something to eat, sleep, then get back to work for the next shift, I really didn't appreciate it when the phone started ringing every few minutes shortly after my head hit the pillows. I'm normally quite a placid, laid-back sort of guy - honest!
  22. Although I'm not proud of my little telephonic outburst the other day, it does seem to have had the desired effect. Not a cheep from them since, .
  23. Anybody else been getting plagued recently by calls from Macklin Motors? It started just over a week ago when a call came through on my mobile from an Edinburgh number that I didn't recognise. I was driving at the time so just ignored it but they became quite persistent, calling a further 4 times in less than 2 hours. Eventually I was in a position to answer a call, curious to find out who needed to speak to me so desperately that they had to keep trying but not so desperately that they didn't feel the need to leave a message on my voicemail. "Good afternoon Mr Boyd," they start
  24. @phil flash Yep, can't beat a nice bit of Oyster!
