  1. I agree it’s the individual surface areas when bonded together that give it the extra strength
  2. Thanks for the replies. The structure of the car is mostly in the 2 large panels beneath the window. As Only the top right is faulty and after talking to 2 yacht repairs I am going to repair it. Step guide based on discussions: 1) remove excess damaged material 2) measure original thickness 3) measured damaged area thickness 4) but exterior plywood to increase thickness back to original 5) rebond the damaged areas and clamp 6) Cut a lap joint into the old fibreglass 7) cut the new section of plywood to shape with a lap joint 8 ) bond in the new plywood 9) screw with washers and wait to dry 10) bond any gaps around the material to body 11) paint and refit window I think this should work fine... he says!!!
  3. Well I can't leave it as it's really bad, I'll have to strip all the bits off around it, protect the headlining and have a go at remaking it all. Should be fun 🙄
  4. Haha probably 😂, would explain why there is so much water damage in my Esprit
  5. The original breather pipes were clear, I think they are still sold like that... but yeah i wouldn’t use that type of pipe myself
  6. Eeeek ... I am stripping my cars interior and I removed the rear panel on the firewall to be greated by delaminating plywood round the firewall window. Rather than replace it as that looks a disaster I was thinking of gluing with polyurethane sealant some back together and clamping it. Then adding replacement mdf of fibreboard to get the thickness back... what do we think? Anither Esprit disaster lol Cheers, Peter
  7. Otherwise nothing wrong arriving on an RAC lorry....😂
  8. Haha yeah engine is in and working fine @Blackngolds3turbo Mind you she did backfire and scare the crap out of me on Tuesday... I might have needed a fire extinguisher in the extra hands lol
  9. If I can get my project Esprit useable on a long distance i’ll there. Should be ok otherwise i’ll be littering the M11 like anyone else from Kent 😂
  10. I am on the look out for a replacement seat for my car in the colour shown... or a pair of S1, S2 or S3 seats (any colour considered). I really don’t want a full retrim unless absolutely necessary. thanks peter

    Day out in Kent

    The Ramps I have are from CJ Autos, work great, about £400 I think... bloody heavy mind you! It was probably your house I parked outside as the car park is always full!

    Day out in Kent

    TE fuel tank replacement

    Puts the leak I had in my Alfa Montreal in the shade.... mine only ended up like a colinder after cleaning up .... not beforehand!
  14. Yeah she is pretty There is a lot to do cosmetically..... it does have an MOT but its not the best on by the look of it as I felt it was very unsafe until I fixed few things. Engine wise I am only using it to take it to the couple of places to fix things (aluminium welders, trimmer. paint shop). apart from that it will not use used. I am awaiting the belt change now. Cheers
  15. I haven't taken many more pictures yet as the paint is badly pealed and the front bumper and bonnet were in grey primer. The original bonnet is now back on now so that helps. Belts wise... no I have not yet, I have been told they were done, but talk is cheap... unlike the result of a failure. I am looking in to the belts being done at the moment. Cheers
