  1. I would like to keep my Eclat as well but the garage is getting a bit full!
  2. Hi Dunc, I did see that post a few years ago, a great idea and thanks for the advice on positioning. I need to get my car on the road again this spring - unfortunately its also blocked in my garage by my wife's MGBGT which as no wheels on at the moment!
  3. Yeah would be good to meet him, yes these cars do seem very under valued for what they are. are you moving far?
  4. Same interior as mine, it has a riviera Bonnet and boot, no PAS, AC or factory fitted sunroof. Assume the factory run out of bonnets and boots and fitted to all S2’s by then?
  5. I did think that as I don't suppose there's too many of them about? Mines got a birdseye maple veneer.
  6. I've started working on mine again after struggling to get the lower links out! I would be defiantly interested in it, did you sell that red one last year?
  7. Looking for a S2 centre panel for my Eclat, the previous owner butchered it to fit a modern radio!
  8. Hello, had to change the bushes on my antiroll bar and as I'de never done any work on the front suspension decided to replace all the bushes which also resulted in new springs, dampers ball joints,trunnions and track rod ends. Stripping has been ok until I came to the lower links. On both sides the pin in seized into the bush sleeve and not much room to get in with any thing. are there any tips to get these out or do need to destroy the lower links?
  9. Thanks Herc, going to order new Mounts and make up a shield if I can't get one. Also take a close look to see what might of caused it as I'm not convinced it can just be heat from the exhaust! Brian
  10. Don't think there's an oil leak and I can't see any thing else that might hVe caused it, a bit paranoid now every time I stop and walk away I case it goes up in flames! I can easily fabricate a shield but I suppose I'll have to remove the engine, gear box, diff and dashboard to fit it!
  11. Thanks Dan, I thought there might have been, it's either fallen off or removed by a previous owner. Brian
  12. I owned an XJS with Ivory leather also had a black dash top.
  13. Hi All, I successfully completed a round trip from Greenwich to the West Midlands which ended in heavy congestion in London last night in my S2 Eclat. After parking outside the house I noticed a burning rubber smell and smoke coming from the left hand side of the engine! On investigation I spotted the left hand engine mount rubber (the one next the the exhaust manifold) smouldering and glowing red! As anyone else come across this, is it a usual fault or problem, is there supposed to be a heat shield in that area? I've had this car for several years and not noticed this problem before...
  14. Hi there, I would like to order left and right seat mechanism covers and tunnel finisher please.
  15. Hi Dunc, I've just sent you an email as not sure you have my éclat on your list. Cheers B
  16. HI David, Classic Le Mans was fantastic - everyone should go at least once! I was a bit disappointed that I couldn't go in the Eclat with th least minute brake issue but glad it happened the day before I set off and not halfway down France...was a bit worried about the MGB as we've not had it long and the furthest we'd been in it is about 10 miles, took the dust cover off the night before and with no preparation it got there and back with no problems Would be very interested in the Riviera but not sure I could sneak it by the wife!! Brian
  17. The previous owner of my 2.2 Eclat fitted K&N filters, when I bought it I never thought to ask for the original bits... anyone have a spare air filter box and other bits to sell or would anybody like to swap for K&N filters there in good condition and make a great vroom vroom sound? Want to put mine back to original spec!
