  3. Fabian As soon as Andy has finished with my ski mounts would you like to borrow them? they may help you
  4. Thanks Fabian about comment on other car Andy its probably best if I post you one of the top and one of the bottom as would be very difficult to do profile measurement's, is a 2-3 week loan enough time, the top one should be identical to the one in the movie, the bottom one has an extra 4 inches of fiberglass on the bottom as it needs trimming at a strange angle you will see what I mean when you receive, wont be able to post till next week, with regards to the bottom mount bracket you may not need them as the skis should hold them in place but that's up to you to decide. My email is
  5. Andy I got mine made by Boss motors in Norfolk he has the original moulds from Lotus from the movie, they have to be trimmed up
  6. I painted the front valance on mine satin black and the sills white, more cost effective that way if I wanted to change them to satin black if I changed my mind, I will send further pictures once the car is finished
  7. between 7 and 7 1/2 ltrs I've just done mine
  8. Try phoning Matt on 07816666056 UK number I know he has a spare dry sump engine and also rebuilds them

  10. Does any one know how many of the original copper Esprit Turbos were ever made?, I thought it was around 20 and made obsolete in 1982
  11. Got to agree on Rudd on that one, these cars have been undervalued for many years and it seems the rare ones have started to hit there mark, I doubt this will be on the market for more than 2 weeks
  12. I am not entirely sure about the Essex stripes, not in my ownership anyway, yes its a dry sump
  13. Tocus I was referring to the FYEO spec car dry dump many had the tobacco interior and not the wet sumps so the information is true, however I do stand corrected on the build qty of the Essex Cars thought over 70 were built with a plan of being 100. see below a section from Lotus archive For the 1980 model year there was 16 other standard Turbo Esprit built before your car, 7 of them were Monaco White, but only 1 of these had full red leather and was the same specification as your car (most of the 1980 cars in white had brown leather). I hope you find this inform
  14. One more day of detailing and its all done
  15. Guys, I was wondering if you can help, on one of my esprits one of the headlight motors has stopped working we have checked the motor and its ok and also none of the dials work tacho, temp, rev counter etc, everything was fine last week, its weird that everything fails at once
