  1. Putting some balance back, I've found that for some children private education is absolutely the right thing for them.

    The parents I know who send kids there do so for the best of reasons and it is genuinely financially painful for the vast majority.

    Yes of course there are exceptions but to generalise that those who send their kids to private school do it for bragging rights is like saying that those who buy sports cars are doing it because they're lacking in the trouser dept. 

    Clive, sorry about the issues with the ex.

    The anodised finish is lovely, Bauke's #951 are still like this, for some reason you cant re-anodise them? Which I always thought was strange. We are used to seeing the Essex cars now with them shiny and polished @Bazza 907 and @Veilside which I agree look great too.



    Hi Lex

    My wheels are still original/anodised and are not 'mirror' polished. You can polish anodised wheels without removing the original finish as I have but if the wheels are ever refurbished it would appear that you can't get them re anodised - I know Jonny (Pitts) tried to get his Compomotives done that way but wasn't able to.

    They bought it with a view to restore and sell it but it wasn't active suspension as I remember it. White turbo, 

    Yes, you're right, not the active suspension Esprit but a white turbo. Just seen it in the "Esprit Addiction for life" DVD and it was A65 JEX. Last MOT expired August 2012. Wonder what happened to it?

  4. Lift the sunroof into the first of it's two positions (i.e. the lowest position) as this relieves the pressure on the pin (bottom of your right hand arrow).

    Then, yes, slide the blue highlighted plastic part to the left per your red arrow - but I'd say 2 or 3cm not mm. This will release the pin. Now do the same to the other latch. If the blue part doesn't move easily you can use a screwdriver to help to some leverage into it - it can need help to move especially if it's not been moved in a while.

    Get out of the car and (ideally first time with somebody on the other side of the car too) with the doors open, raise the back of the sunroof (the side with the handles attached) from underneath i.e horizontal to somewhere close to 60 degrees. At this point you should be able to unhook the curved lips on the front leading edge of the sunroof from the top of the windscreen and lift it clear of the car. It is quite heavy and you don't want to break it.

    Once out you should have a bag in the rear boot to put it into and then it fits into the boot at the back. Fit the wind deflector into the holes at the top of the windscreen to ease wind noise.

    Putting it back is the reverse.

  5. If it was a private sale then he's got no right of redress unless it's been misdescribed as previously mentioned.

    However, I wonder if he could make an argument that if you made a living (or part of a living) from buying, doing up and then selling cars then you could be seen as a part time motor trader? If that was the case then the car would have to be 'fit for purpose' which, if it broke down within a day, it probably wasn't?

  6. That looks like the one that Allon White reupholstered and was for sale at Paul Matty's about 3 or 4 years ago. I saw it there and personally thought that it was a shame that the interior had been redone that way but it was a lovely looking car.
