  1. Great work Cor, looks like a very good quality build. - did you notice the rear clam quick release system I've put onto mine...the runners bolted onto the longerons, and the ally panels bonded under the rear clam with runners on that slip into the runners? - it does make it easier to put it on/off.
  2. I originally used these: but | didn't trsut that they'd be strong enough - so replaced them with countersunk M5 screws, with washers and nyloc nuts on the back. I still retained the Dzus retaining clips on the bodywork. You doing a similar project?
  3. I've just bought this: a 2000 111s with 30k miles, good paint, hardtop, recent head gasket and cam belt and very clean underneath (brought back from Japan) for £16.5k. Interstingly I'm selling my V6 Exige to make way for this, prefering the S1 experience!
  4. anyone advise on how to get to the front retaining bolt, it's in front of the oil cooler. I've removed the oild cooler bracket and front grills, but can't find a way to get to loosen it. Does the oil cooler have to be removed too?
  5. Hi George, I've had some water damage to the Daytime Running LED's on my drivers side headlight (not working), but all other light functions are ok. 2015 Exige S The problem is, as you'll know a new headlight unit is silly money from Lotus - £1k ! - so I'd still be looking to recoup about £500 for my damaged unit and don't expect anyone would want to pay that ? you may have also sourced another by now anyway, let me know if you can, Dave

  7. surely the winner must come from the stable of Blohm & Voss's my contender:
  8. 'twas just a blown fuse, replaced and all good again now. Relieved, as I thought I may have to replace the resistor pack, which is clam off job!
  9. Drove through flooded area today - up North. Exige coped remarkably well apart from heater fan / de-mister packing in after one bit that was deep! Any thoughts? - could it be something as simple as a blown fuse? - can’t check at moment
  10. I've just used this guy: Andy - 07534 223730 - nice guy, careful loading car on and off, he transported my Elise project over to North Yorkshire and back, reasonable price I thought (£240) he is based in Preston, not sure where you are moving from?
  11. I had one of these (Fiat 128 Coupe) when I was a lad, haven't seen one for many years now. great little thing 'till it turned to dust!
  12. saw one of these the other day in Warrington, in yellow too - looked cool so, if Saab could design something like this, why did they insist on producing tanks?
