  1. To be honest I am rather assuming the existing foam won't survive the existing carpets being removed. Who knows though?
  2. Thanks Ian. It's this stuff, foam sound insulation rather than 'underlay'. I'll check out the NK Group stuff.
  3. Have bought a gorgeous set of carpets from @Steve V8: Need to get some 'underlay' to go under some sections. This is the stock stuff: Dynamat has been advised, bit pricey, even the 1/8'' Dynaliner which looks to be the entry level stuff. Anyone got any recommendations for something that doesn't cost the earth but is better than yoga mats?
  4. Am sure there are a few more Hereford and Worcester Lotuses that in theory could come out to play in time. There's an Azure blue Esprit S4s in Ross, then there's @PAUL GURNEY's GT3, @Rob Warren's X180. @Barrykearley, you mentioned an S1 that was going to come out but was rain adverse? Anyone know of any others? A cross county visit to Caffeine and Machine in Warwickshire for a future meet was touted and does sound fun
  5. What a fun morning! Great meeting everyone. Next time I'm sure it won't rain so heavily
  6. Nothing not to like about Leicester (from a Spurs fan).
  7. There's this great quote, attributed to Aristophanes (about 400BC): "The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers." Problem is that quote was actually made up by someone doing a dissertation at Cambridge in 1907 Aristophanes did say t
  8. Following @tomcattom's foam insulation design, I did the driver's side cover. Installation would have been easier if I had had 3 arms with 2 having very thin wrists. Shoved on some tape as well around the sides for good measure. It looked a complete bodge job so no pictures were taken. Put everything back together, started her up, turned over but didn't catch. Espritmon reported a QDM B error. Thanks to @Barrykearley's help it turns out that there's a bloody OFF button in the engine bay (fuel cut off switch). It had triggered, likely due to my fat arms poking around in that area.
  9. All insulation does it to stop heat flow if there's a temperature difference between inside the space and outside. If the insides are not heated the temp inside will be the same as the temp outside so no heat flow so no need for insulation. One exception is, as Ian pointed out, the temp underground under the floor slab might be less than the air temp, often in winter. Then insulation under the floor will keep the floor nearer the air temp rather than the colder underground temp. You thought about electric under tile heating? It's a good way to achieve a uniform temp and, if insulation und
  10. And it doesn't look so set for fine weather on Sunday. However... screw that, what's a bit of rain on a Lotus? I'm still planning to be there for 10am, at least to get out of the bloody house, at most to get to see the Hereford and Worcester Lotus contingent!! Umbrellas anyone?
  11. Having worked with software developers as a Product Manager for ~25 years, I'm looking forward to going beyond my basic VBA coding skills into C++ and Python coding when I retire (albeit in quite a few years hence). Got a few applications I'm interested in implementing; non-linear dynamic system response and fractal geometry. Hopefully will keep the mind active during the dotage
  12. Thanks Tom. I'll use the same foam layout as you've done!
  13. @tomcattom, did the foam inserts work out OK? I've got some foam on order and will be doing the same.
  14. 1 week to go before the inaugural Hereford and Worcester meet and the weather looks to be set fine. Got a Lotus and want to come along and talk cars? 'Come on down'!
