  3. Hi Wayne ,how's things in the Esprit world??

    I have the winter blues and have put my green Esprit on Car and Classic and I am in talks with an enthusiastic Esprit owner. If I am offered a reasonable price for it would you be interested for me to let you know what i might let it go for ?? . So I could offer it to you as you do such a good job on rebuilding them.  I think that as I'm getting on a bit I can.t see me having the enthusiasm that I used to.

    Otherwise Cheers.

      Hey Paul, nice to hear from you. Hope you are well also. All good in lotus esprit land 😂

      bit surprised you want to sell the S3. Biggest question is how much. 
      needs a total resto doesn’t it? 
      running gear and engine minimum. 
      It’s all about the price fella. 
      got to be under 8k to make it worth while for me. 
      let me know your thoughts. 
      all the best

      Hi Wayne , glad to hear things are good on the Esprit front. I must admit you do an excellent job of restoring them.

      I'd just thought I'd take a punt and see what happens , I soon come to my sences. I'll mull over it . I think I would need a bit more than  what your offering, but i won't rule it out. I have a lot more time now we have restructured the business but i still do not have the enthusiasm  I used to and I know that you would do a fantastic resto on the Esprit.Yes you are right the engine would need a complete strip down ,clean and rebuild, a piece of cake to you. I,ll let you know and I.ll give you first shout if I decide to sell it.

      Cheers Paul.

  6. Kind words Gary I was available before Christmas for about 6 weeks as I was between contracts. Been picked up for another 18 months work Building Flats in Fulham. Not as much fun as building 910s in my workshop. all the afore mentioned engineers would do a brilliant job. @Sparky is first on the list though.
  7. Me.... mine is the bollox... i thought it was a very straight forward Build to be fair. My second 910 Turbo engine from the crankshaft up. some make it sound like a Saturn 5 to build. It’s an internal combustion engine, that’s all. And to be fair the tolerances are not even that tight. the main thing is having the right kit and space. Fabian was dead unlucky IMO. Had a follower fail by the sound of it. nothing to do with blast media. My entire block, sump and head blasted. Clean as a whistle. No residue. Good as gold. stop over thinking it. @Lotusfab
  8. Unfortunately Michelle is really under the weather so we are going to cancel this month. Happy new year everyone. wayne and Michelle
  9. The Hornchurch massive will be in attendance. ( Both members... )
  10. Keep saying it doesn’t help.... does it Chris...
