  1. It could be worth a couple of hundred quid for the rolling chassis.I am after one to convert my elite for ease of servicing
  2. Hi Richard I am interested dependant on price.Would require 5.
  3. Hi You can obtain 6A diodes from E bay which will do the job for you.Be careful those contacts don't become high resistance.
  4. As headlining is a job awaiting me in the near future where did you purchase the non foambacked material
  5. thanks .Will try.Lotus bits have stopped making and selling them due to problems they were having
  6. hi shortly during a long protracted restoration om my Elite I will need replacement door frames.Lotus bits inform me that they can no longer supply brand new items as they are having difficulty with the quality.Any ideas?
  7. Hi Paul.If you look up the characteristics of these fuses you might be horrified to find out that the cheaper fuses will not blow until a current nearly twice the rating flows through them.The better quality fuses will blow at the rating specified.For the blower motors 25A rating allows for the initial surge when first swiched on.
  8. As I'm about to do a wakeup call for my elite I suspect the fuel tank would be a pile of rust inside so an alternative might be nice.
  9. HI Mike. justas a matter of interest where did you get your new fuel lock valve from?
  10. Hi Dave.Whats the battery voltage with the engine the alternator charging the battery.It should be at least over 13.8v.If you rev. the engine the battery volts should increase.It's worth checking the alternator belt.If the alternator is doing its stuff then you have a faulty battery.
  11. Im afterpanels for the rear luggage compartment in my s1 elite
  12. Thanks for that.Will look into it.Lotus bits are quite horrendous for their prices,
  13. Has anyone got a couple of rear drive shafts plus hubs for sale.
