  2. Finally all trimmed, here is a teaser screenshot windows 7....
  3. I'm just in the process of buying a pair off eBay :-) it can't be that hard to swap them over - only time will tell.
  4. Really lol I have a corrado vr6 too and an rx7, was looking at using one of these as they look sold and nicer. Never know the McLaren F1 shared the same wing mirrors until now :-)
  5. Any one done this.... Was wondering if something more modern works or does it ruin things?
  6. Hi Dunc, most probably the same car.... All the interior was taken out and put in the boot when it come in. But all seems to be there. I wasn't told anything about it being magazine feature only told about the engine. I didn't get to meet the guy personally he did a deal with my body shop who was gonna restore it fully. But they was too buy and new I liked my lotus so I took it on. The engine does look like lots has been done though so I can only assume he was tellin the truth.I didn't get much paperwork sadly. So got one of the lads giving it some love and restoring it as much as possible now... Not spending loads though so its not going to look show condition again while in my hands... Thats a job for the next guy
  7. I'm still trying to do my Esprit up and meant to be selling all my cars not gaining more. Will get some pics tomorrow guys. Its silver - someone previously has body coloured the bonnet vent, and bumpers which I think looks pants. So will get them back to black. Didn't realise how rare they was So will probably shift it on for what it owes me - he's handed me a lower front splitter which is meant to b rare too
  8. Hi Guys, just taken a Eclat in part exchange... I have to give him £2k for it but looked on line and think that was cheap. Its been dry stored for years and the guy spent thousands on a company turning the 2.2 into a 2.5 and rebuilding the engine to have a big increase in power and torque. The car has 84k and drives pretty well. No tax or mot but think other than tyres and a few pennies it could pass easy enough. So, just wondering did I buy something I'm gonna struggle to sell or did I get a bargain?
  9. The is a welder here in south Wales who will repair it BUT I'm sure he could never guarantee the strength of the wheel after. You'd need to cut the metal away to create a V and fill it back up. You can grind the face to look right but IMO you should the extra weld on the back to add strength
  10. Looks like a lovely example - interior is amazing!
  11. As above - going back to original you c :-)
  12. Went to visit Andy (Punky) lastnight which left me very impressed with his conversion. Top bloke I must say and very spoilt for choice with the motors he's got around him. Def confused now in what to do.... Once I've sorted my interior out I'll drive it for a bit and decide then, do I mod my low mileage factory example or buy one done and sell the red one to someone who wants it looking standard.
  13. Looks like a nice motor
