  1. @drdoomI have the later type Steve. Those bushes were easy to replace...
  2. Hi all, Replacing the bushes on my front suspension but currently stumped with the rubber bush on the upper wishbone. Not the one with the metal sleeve. The rubber is wider than the hole. Anyone have a tip on how to fit it? I have a vice and press for assistance if required. Cheers, Pete
  3. Working down in Sussex so may or may not be back in time. Pete
  4. Lockable petrol caps too not on S2. Aren't we a bunch of anoraks! Pete
  5. I think there is also a special tool for correctly locating that seal which will leak if not properly aligned.. Pete
  6. Satin Black for all the black bits. Pete
  7. Yes to the carpet buttons. No idea about painted bolts. Pete
  8. Don't worry. We have a new guy called @DaveC72 who's taken your place. 😜
  9. I was in front of you in the green Series 2 Land Rover.
  10. I had exactly the same holes. Araldite solved it. Pete
  11. Mine has speakers there too. No idea if they were original fitment though. Pete
  12. Mine has boards covering everything from the bulkhead back. I have seen cars with a board over the boot area which mine never had but I have since made one . Can take pics if you still need them. Pete
  13. I've done mine though needed a press to get the old bearing out. Only other thing is a torque wrench that goes up to 200ft/lb, an extension bar and nerves of steel when tightening the nut hub nut! Pete
  14. I've used Redline EP90 for the last 96k miles in my S2 and always filled to the level according to the manual. Pete
  15. I think they're open until 7.30pm according to facebook page, forgot to ask when I was in there on Saturday with a friend. I'll be there for about 6.15pm after work.
  16. Wonston open 5pm to 8pm on a Monday if that's not too early. Shall we say 25th?
  17. Meee driiinnnkkkk beeeeeer! Plough, Longparish or a cheeky Monday at the Wonston? Could be my last outing in the Esprit for a while with front suspension rebuild imminent amongst a couple of other things now all the bits have arrived. Pete
  18. 2007 Basingstoke, UK to Kranjska Gora, Slovenia in 2 days with overnight stop in the Black Forest in my S2 Esprit. Approx 550 miles a day. Similar trip but via St Tropez and Italy in 1998. Pete
  19. Hope this helps. You will find you need to add some shims to the tailgate in order to get the catch to lock fully. Pete
  20. Basingstoke today.
  21. Sorry chaps, not going to make it tonight. Eunice hit us quite hard and we only got power back this afternoon. Big mess to clear up and the wife is not overly happy about me sodding off to the pub. Please book the next one before 20th March and I'll try to make that one. Give Dave a birthday kiss from me xxx Pete
  22. Yup. So far 5 leylandii down smashing garden shed, pinned powerline in garden on top of shed, telephone line taken out, panel fences destroyed, old willow tree destroyed and we've 3 hours to go...
