  1. Regardless of the rim shade, there is way too much room between the wheel arches and the rubber But I dig the top one Stefan
  2. Glyn I have the same problem. Tried this email various times, but no response. Wonder if the guy exists.
  3. To me it is definitely the 512BB. Followed by the 3()s. Today's Ferraris are boring to the bone. The front looks to japanese life stylish and the rear light cluster of the 430 for instance reminds me of the "airplane" on a merry-go-round.
  4. Seen on some lorries here in Germany (especially when they pull out in front of you while your brakes are melting away) " As long as apples can't be emailed, you have to live with me in front of you"
  5. Tony The deck is 5 mm, - 97 mm bore - 87.5 mm stroke Artie You are right about the bore, that's why the head is locked to the block using 10 dowells ! In addition, all parts are hot honed (at engine working temperature ) to give the tightest tolerances possible
  6. Spot on Kylie, the crowns are Keronite coated have a look at their website : Artie You were right, your rods look the same as mine. I will ask Garry where he's got them from What's your crown treatment ? Artie, I asked Garry about the rods and he says he is does not want to disclose the manufacturer. Sorry, mate New update Coming along nicely, I'd say Just love the closed deck design, makes so much sense
  7. 1. The Macallan, 18yrs, sherry cask 2. The Macallan, 18yrs, sherry cask 3. The Macallan, 18yrs, sherry cask 4. The Macallan, 18yrs, sherry cask 5. The Macallan, 18yrs, sherry cask And should the above stock be emptied for a reason, I always have a bottle of the Balvenie 21yrs port wood in my stash
  8. Thanks guys, I can't wait to see my "English Patient" back on the road again
  9. Greg, Thanks for your comment. It is in line with all the other ones so far. I shall not follow up on it any further cheers Stefan
  10. Artie The rods I don't know, as Garry Kemp had them made, but the pistons are originally from Mahle and got customised to fit the 2.6l block.
  11. Finally, we are back on deck. Rods came in today and as you can see they look the works. They are 1 kg lighter than the factory ones !! In another thread, I think it was Artie's engine rebuild, there was some talk about iron liners. Well, here you can see some. I shall keep you posted hopefully every second day with new piccies as R & B assemble the rest of the engine. Bear with us Stefan Bj
  12. Typical !! The Euro gang has responded to this potential bargain but non of the colonial boys Maybe most of them are still asleep, hopefully not at the wheel
  13. Hi gang Saw this the other day. Very tempting as the Euro is still stronger than the greenback. Can one of you find out more about this car ? Is maybe sombody from that area that can take a closer look ? Thanks Stefan
  14. Sorry for being silent for so long, but there has been nothing to report. As soon as the new rods come in from Garry Kemp we will be able to complete the engine. From that point onwards I will be able to feed you lots of info. Cheers Stefan HI Bj
  15. Panic Paula, my cat as seen last weekend at the premier league
  16. As far as I can remember, the wheels are made by Brock
  17. Owen First of all, congrats to yor conceptual designs. I appreciate people with imagination and passion for design. I do generally think your design points in the right direction but I also have this "Ferrari" feeling when I look at the front. It is too well-behaved, if you know what I mean. The Esprit lines are more edgy and agressive, it ducks down over the road. I guess a bit more "stealth" like lines would cater to that I am totally aware of the fact, since the Esprit is a classic it is very hard to integrate new design DNA and still keep the overall Esprit look that people are l
  18. Serge I can recommend the following ; shop (english ) Both are well respected sources in Esprit tuning Cheers Stefan
  19. Artie I know this is slightly off topic, but I know how you feel. Best of Luck with your engine rebuild Stefan
  20. Congrats Michael Another one with the sexiest rear spoiler on the planet
