  1. Yes it looks like the waistline trim tucks in underneath the bumper. I went to a local rubber shop with the bumper and trial fitted various sizes of u-rubber until I found one that felt right.
  2. Looking at the LH, you can see on the right there is a row of three jacknuts. The centre one holds the bumper in place. Then the indicators go over the top, and screw through the bumper and body. My indicators came from Mini Spares UK. The four holes are threaded and had bolts and nuts that probably fit a mini properly. It doesn't work for the Esprit because you don't have access to the inside of the front boot where the bumper screws in. I removed these nuts and bolts and put M4 bolts through the lens frame holes, fixing them to the jacknuts in the body. This makes the bumper and
  3. Front bumper is screwed into the bodywork. I couldn't have this, so installed jack nuts so I can bolt the bumper in: New titanium (what else?) bolts: And new lenses: Bumper on:
  4. The seals you have which are not a good fit, are these the SJ ones?
  5. I'm not bothering with the correct texture. I am pedantic about most things but not about seeking to match the finish of the original car.
  6. Unfortunately I've lost the bits that have snapped off...
  7. The left one was intact. The right one, if you look closely at my first pic, the plastic has snapped off where the top two rivets/screws go. I think one of the bottom corners has also snapped off. I'm going to have to do some research to see if plastic can be fixed and who can do it in Sydney! The SJ parts are fibreglass and completely stiff, so they can't be bent to the natural curve of the body. I found them to be a different size and shape and because of this impossible to fit.
  8. Affixed the B post trim today. Bought new ones from SJ, here they are with the stickers on them: The SJ parts are much thicker, and made of fibreglass instead of the brittle plastic of the original. Unfortunately they do not fit because they do not follow the contours of the body the way my orginal parts do, so into storage they go. My left side trim was in pretty decent condition, so I started on that one first. Repainted with VHT primer and Hood Bumper & Trim Black: The bodyshop had filled and painted over most of the holes, so th
  9. Another (more expensive) option:
  10. This is what the complete kit looks like.
  11. Waitaminute I have an S2. Will this fit my chassis?
  12. Ah yes I have all of that, even the heat shield! Thanks so much for clearing that up it was driving me nuts.
  13. Unless it's off my Renault Clio? Found it in my box of Esprit parts though...
  14. Took my car apart 6 years ago. Now I can't remember what anything is. Can someone please tell me what this is? I have two of them. Thanks!
