  1. Hi All - got there at about 10:30 and most of you had already left, will be there earlier next time. is there a part of the car pack/cafe area that you usually meet?
  2. Thanks Tim It’s called metallic, but back in the 70s you really wouldn’t have noticed it’s a very tiny fleck in it Once again Lotus forums provides the answer
  3. Thanks Phil - can now get a pot and a pen, and plan the next trip
  4. We have just had a terrific weekend. West Sussex - South Wales, Worcester and back, mainly using A roads, of course such fun comes a a cost, and we have picked up a couple of paint chips, so we are looking for some paint. Does anybody know what the Lotus code for Lagoon Blue is, I have the Pinchin Johnson ref 6170A1130, but that is getting me nowhere. Info greatly appreciated
  5. That's quick, looks like a very professional operation, a little apprehensive to ask how much, but if you don’t ask you will never know. Many thanks
  6. Hi Have found a mechanically sound 130/5 that's interior has significant mice damage, eaten pieces of the uphostery, and it is in general fairly disgusting. I do not have the skill to do it to a sufficiently high stand. Any recomendations on a company that could, preferably in the South of England. Thanks
  7. Thanks Jon - but unfortunately car is not with me at the moment
  8. I have a 1973 130/5 +2 - how does it generate electricity?
  9. Championship badge goes on the N/S rear
  10. Does anyone have a photo of an Original Equipment gear knob for my 1967 Elan +2 At the moment it has a later yellow / green one. They are some black / white offered on eBay from the US, but I'm not too sure that they are correct. What should it look like? Wood? Car is in for some fettling, quick, but we think there is another 20% - Oh dear!!! Thanks
  11. Many thanks for the words It's for us to drive and enjoy. Agree with you. ACBC would want his cars to be improved and driven and not left as museum pieces. It's not as good as the one we saw at Bell and Colvill, but that had done 18k, we would have been frightened to drive that one. Ours wasn't cheap, but love never is! Hope to see you at a lotus event or two next year
  12. Will leave it without mirrors and drive VERY CAREFULLY. Reshelled - yes, but couldn't resist - it looks so good. What's your feeling on this - be honest
  13. For the guys still looking - This was (probably still is) available at Automotive Solutions in Bristol - £20k, but he would modify to solid drive (cost about £800 - £1000 with labour) - not converted to unleaded, a bit smelly (petrol) - much better than anything at UK Sports Cars
  14. Opinions please: It needs door mirrors as it is very difficult to drive on congested South East roads - but it looks so good without. What to do? More photos for theelanman
  15. Eventful first drive from North London down to the South Coast. Heavy rainfall, which was not in the plan. Wipers just about coped. Seagull cr*pped on us just as we got on to the front, and the handbrake is non-existent. Positives - heater good - Easy yo keep windows clear of condensation. - Oil pressure when hot 25psi idling, 38psi at 3000rpm - Temperature steady at 80 C - relatively quiet at 3500rpm but not enough to hear the radio. Very pleased
