  1. Looks like another job on my winter to do list.
  2. Well you live n learn ... Should have read up a bit better before being a smart a**e.
  3. @Barrykearley as is mine, I think it's called the sail panel, plus both the A-Pilar trims have cracks as well. Just an excuse to get some CF replacements , plus the trims around the rear lights that are no longer chrome. But factored the cost of these into the buy. Just fixed the Cruise on mine , not working when I bought it and replaced both post Cat Oxy sensors, not expected, but it's a 10 year old car so you factor these things in. As @mik said "There is a saying that you either love your car despite its faults, or hate your car despite its virtues" and I know which camp I fall into.
  4. What made me happy (yesterday) finding the fix to no cruise control on the Evora was as simple as crawling under the dash and re connecting the potentiometer getting rid of the 30s spanner light ... Quickly followed by what made me sad 2 new orange lights , tyre pressure warning caused by a nail in the tyre and the MIL caused by what appears to be an oxygen sensor fail !!!
  5. For the first time I feel let down by the plainness of my LE...
  6. @EuropaSman looking at your pics made me realise there was something off about my car .... For some wierd reason the clip in NACA ducts on the undertray were on the outside. So fixed tonight again TLF has helpful info it doesn't realise it has
  7. Blueg33 I suspect your right and from what I can see they are nutserts into the fibreglass. Do they are going to have to stay until the front clam needs to come off as I'm guessing I'll need to replace the nutserts as well !
  8. All does anyone know what the 4 scuttle retaining bolts screw into fibre glass , nutsert, impossible to access loose nut ? I want to replace them with some black coated stainless items as their rustiness offends me but they're just spinning ...
  9. So thought I'd better post these to the forum now I've had time to take a couple of the new one and one of its predecessor..
  10. When I stripped the Alpine out of mine the sub was plugged into the imprint rear speaker outputs with a Left and Right RCA so I just plugged the sub into the rear out RCAs of my Sony and also had to connect the remote out connection into the lotus harness ... I think it was a blue and white cable there's a good pinout description in one of the threads on here.
  11. I needed to release the catches the alpine keys are used for in mine , but as I didn't have alpine keys I found a pair of suitably sized tea spoon handles worked a treat to release the spring locks then it pulled out.
  12. That's a nice looking car ... But then I'm probably biased towards white ones . Congrats.
  13. Thanks to all the info here on TLF I've done the first "mod" to the Evora and swapped the original head unit and blackbird thingy for a nice new Sony system everything working beautifully including the camera , sub etc. So I now have a loom that goes lotus, iso, Sony including all the clever bits such as reverse, hand brake, lighting dim , dab etc. And a lot less junk in the car all without removing the dash.
