  1. Thanks Imran...what about Neil Garner in Kemble? I’ll give him a shout first as he’s closest to me.
  2. Has anyone found a decent step-by-step guide in how to remove the oem steering wheel (with airbag) and swap for a Momo wheel? I’ve found snippets here and there but no good guide. I was going to get Lotus Silverstone to do it whilst the car is in for service but my Momo wheel is currently at Royal Steering Wheels and won’t be back in time. The removable steering wheel kit I need to fit was from Dave at Seriously Lotus. Failing lack of a decent guide, has anyone used a decent indy to do it in Gloucestershire?
  3. Received mine Imran, thanks. Lovely quality work!
  4. Just in the midst of cleaning the new arrival; wheels off and cleaning in the arches. I removed the rear offside wheel this afternoon and found a couple of things which are pictured. The first was the collar highlighted on the shock; I rattles around quite loosely and moves up and down freely which I’d have thought would make a hell of a noise whilst driving. Are these normally like this? Secondly, looking behind the brake disc on the same hub there is what looks like a bodge job of a taped up wire (ABS sensor?). Surely this isn’t how it should look from factory is it? The cars got warranty until July so I can get stuff like this sorted as long as I spot it.
  5. Ah, ok chaps, thanks for the advice. I’ll leave well alone!
  6. Does anyone with the open gear linkage tend to lubricate any of the moving joints inbetween services? I’m assuming it sees some form of lubrication at a service? Also, how much slack/play should there be front to back when in neutral? I feel the need to tinker.
  7. If I’m looking at the correct pipe, it just looks like fuel line tubing to me. If you can take it off and measure the OD/ID you can easily source some off ebay or any motor factor.
  8. Fantastic! Thanks a lot. 2 per side...right you are sir!
  9. Can anyone point me in the right direction for the tailgate bump stops? Just noticed today I’m missing one. I tried to upload a pic but file size is too large. They’re on the underside of the tailgate, 1 per side and push onto a hex head bolt.
  10. I’ve read elsewhere that the early 350 wings were an issue. The car’s still got warranty on it but I don’t know if there was a re-design in this area to stop this happening? Otherwise I’ll glue it.
  11. Picked up my Sport 350 yesterday and whilst cleaning it today I’ve noticed the RH endplate to wing is loose. Can anyone shed any light on how the two are attached please?
  12. Cheers Duncan, yeah, it’s great. The cleaning starts tomorrow and as I managed to clear out the years of accumulated crap in my garage over the last two weeks, paint the walls white and put down flooring, will continue on the lead up to the Spring. At last I have a garage that is going to be nice to spend time in, especially with a lovely Lotus in it
