  1. Did you see the 2 pods from my Eclat on eBay last week? They didnt sell and Im happy to let you have the nearside one if you want it.
  2. Thanks @Techyd. That's good to know. I didn't realise Esso regular unleaded doesn't contain any Ethanol. Will be filling up at Esso now. I am currently using Shell V power. Expensive but nothing is too good for my old 'babies'!
  3. Glad you got it going. I DO have a spare, So if there are any probs down the line let me know.
  4. Im pretty sure Ive got a spare thats the same as the one in the photo. I can look it out if you want?? Let me know. Cheers.
  5. Just had another thought @Matt-watts had a batch of crash pads made some time ago and I think i read that he was thinking about having another batch made. You could ask him and see.
  6. Don't know if your have thought of this but I went onto last year and managed to pick up my S1 steering wheel from the States. Even with the cost plus the postage fees to the UK it was still cheaper than £500.00. Just a thought.
  7. Hi James, I think you will have to be prepared to shell out. One just went on eBay this weekend for £510.00! Item no. 193977736471 Best of luck with the search.
  8. I have these three on my hallway wall. Company called Golden Era. Loads of different car cards. Good descriptions on the rear. Very reasonable prices. All available.
  9. I am selling my 1980 Eclat as a restoration project for £1500.00 Its a shame to break her, especially seeing as there are so few left. I have put an ad in the classified section so check it out!
  10. ***My Favourite Biker Joke Of The Day**** A little girl was leaning into a lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, all under the eyes of her screaming parents: A biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumps back, letting go of the girl, and the biker brings the girl to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A BBC reporter, Laura Kuenssberg, had watched the whole event. Laura, addressing the
  11. Just saw this is for sale by auction on Catawiki. 15 days to go Never seen one offered for sale ever. Located in France. ( I have nothing to to with the car or the auction, --- worse luck!) Lotus - Esprit Saint Tropez - 1978 - Catawiki
  12. Hi Guys, Good news! I went down to the garage today to have another go at getting the seized clutch plate to free up. Started her up and waited half an hour as per @Clive59. I maybe left it a bit too long because it started boiling and overflowed out the header tank! Anyway, after that little setback, tried the 'put it in reverse gear (I was in the garage) then turn the starter motor over' method. After jerking it out of the garage, it finally let go and I could drive it properly. Big relief. I didn't really fancy taking the engine out again. I gave it a small run round the block and ever
  13. Thanks @Clive59. I did let it warm up but not for as long as half an hour. I will try that as well when I go down to the garage. Thanks.
