  1. Hi Jim Thanks for the insight. I will swap over to Esso super unleaded for the Carb cars
  2. Our S2 is very original, even down to the sicker on the fuel cap - "Do not use fuel containing ethanol " We only use super unleaded usually use Tesco momentum 99 (or Shell Vmax) in all the Esprits, but will keep an eye on the information on the pump handle for sure.
  3. Hi @Brian Harvey I had the Falkens Ziex ZE310 Ecorun 195/60R15 88V and 225/60R15 96W to fitted my Wedge HC last year and I am well happy with them, and the profile and look suits the car. Plus only they were only £300 odd at the time, all in fitted and balanced etc from Pro-tyre (who own/import Falken tyres)
  4. Hi @markw996 how are finding the Goodyear tyres as I need some fresh rubber on my S4 and these Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 on my shortlist
  5. Saw this on eBay, interesting project for someone.
  6. Sparky's talents never cease to amaze, painting cam covers, while doing a jig to some 80's throw back music. The passers by were very impressed
  7. @Sparky I see what you meant now about the handbrake cable...lesson learnt Obi wan Given the choice between a high mileage regularly used Lotus, and one that's been in a "private collection" .....the first option all the way. Sparky is on the case now and will make sure the car is right. Rather worrying about being one tooth out. The car had a cambelt change just before I got the car by the previous owners mechanic, that looked after his collection of classic cars !
  8. @Bazza 907 is the owner on the Forum ? Apparently only 6 Glacier blue HC's were made, here is my rather less glamourous surroundings
  9. I did have a chuckle when google ads threw up this on your feed......its must have picked on the "pain and pleasure" thread
  10. OK Bibs, I will hold onto it until you hear back from Lotus
  11. Having a bit of a garage clear out and I came across this Lotus EMM Engine Management & Fuel Injection Manual for the V8 @Bibs can this uploaded for forum members to use ? If not its free for any paid up TLF member. Otherwise I will put it on the classifieds for £25.00 (so a good incentive to join TLF as a paid up member ) Dragan
  12. Thanks @Bibs for all your efforts, and I totally agree with @Sparky My Gold membership costs have been paid back many, many times over with all the support and knowledge provided on this forum in helping to keep my cars on the road.
  13. @skiing I like the sound of your idea. how does it look ? Someone did suggest going to a breakers yard and getting a ridged roof liner off an another car and cutting it down and doing the same as you, and just wedge it in place.
  14. Thanks everyone for the advice. I am surprised that the Head liner was glued directly onto the fibre glass of the roof. I will look into the foam option or use a board and cover that and place that back. Any idea on how to remove the pillar posts and rails, do I just pull them away, will I need new replacement clips ?
