  1. A good spot. But the 240 is not mine. The picture was taken by the previous owner, one of a few old Japanese cars that he had. It's the only decent photo of the S2 I have!
  2. Thanks for the post. Your car looks great. This is why this forum is so good that people can share their experiences. When my plus 2 is finished (late spring next year I hope!) I shall start on the S2.
  3. Hi I too need sills for my S2 (fortunately not the front spoiler). The only 2 company's I thought that can supply sills are SJ Sports cars or Boss Motors, the latter supplied me a rear section for my Elan+ 2, I believe from the original moulds and fitted by spider cars looked great. If it was one of these company's that you purchased your sills from, you could try the other. Sorry that's the best I can offer. I love to know how you get on as I'm going to be in the same predicament.

    Lotus Esprit S2 .project/restoration

    I thought I put down a few notes on this topic. I was one of the bidders who felt that the Blue Esprit s2 was worth more than 12 grand. But I had to set a limit so I was outbid. I was in contact with the seller and informed me that he had another s2 and might sell it privately. I went and viewed the car and the deal was done, for slightly more than the blue Esprit. This one in red, is complete and showing 60, 000 miles. Unfortunately someone has fitted turbo sills (to be removed). It turns out (according to Lotus) the original colour is Gold and this can be seen trying to see the light of day through the red paint in places. This is the colour it will be again and should make a nice companion to my JPS +2. I agree with the comments that the prices of this cars are only going one way. PS sorry to HowardHughes but the previous owner fitted the gearbox and door mirrors from your car to mine.
