  1. Seasons greetings to all of the hants gang. Saw Pete's esprit on the telly, it looked stunning. Noticed the exhaust wobble abit I reckon you've got a dodgy engine mount๐Ÿ˜‰ there guv. Program itself was a bit tedious and couldn't decide whether it was a giant piss take or not having a blind guy in an antiques shop man handling knobs (that's the sort of thing that'll get you locked up) Hope all stay safe and a merry Christmas's to you all, Tony.
  2. I remembered on the way home it was Phenolic resin, (nasty stuff). Just had to get that of my chest. Another great evening.
  3. Just seen the post, hopefully make it along too.
  4. @pbharcourt was that triggered by the covid Jab I wonder. Had to Google it (as I was sure it was nothing to do with the seaside) Sounds nasty so best wishes for a speedy recovery, hate to say it but Google also thinks its mostly old people that get it, of course I'm not implieng anything of the sort but a couple of weeks rest with coco and slippers and I am sure you'll be fine bless. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  5. Best of luck with that Dean hope all goes well.
  6. Would any one want to meet up next week 22,23,24 etc, Or is it a bit short notice.? Doh. Forgot to say how's your eye doing kev?
  7. Another great Lotus night on Tuesday, so good to get out and catch up with a few of you and great to see a new face and older car. Hopefully see a few more of you in the near future. Hope all made it safely home with no dramas, I certainly exercised mine keenly on the way back. I think we could still hear dave 5 miles up the road, that V6 sounds glorious.
  8. Thinking of you Kev. Hope it was all successful, you make a swift recovery and can get back behind the wheel soon
  9. You threw your hat in his ring, that sounds painful ๐Ÿ˜ญ No wonder he didn't accept your generous offer.
  10. I've already got enough spares in my bedroom to half build an elise, cause the garage is already full of essential spares (crap to most people but it's amazing what you can find a use for if you try). I heard someone on telly say they are not a hoarder just a collector. ๐Ÿ˜† By the way got a close look at Emersons Lotus 72 on Sunday, literally starred at it for 1/2 hr whilst chatting to the chap that brought it down (what a piece of art). Didn't realise it has front drive shafts (obvious really cause of the inboard brakes). Unfortunately didn't have the camera.
  11. Covid : not just a pandemic but also turns out to be the perfect excuse for just about anything.
  12. Don't want to be negative but LHD federal spec???. It clearly needs a lot of work but after all the cost and time it's still LHD and in a low car that's got to make overtaking a bit tricky. The price of these is getting scary. I am sure if it wasn't too bad a condition and has everything there it might be a reasonable price. Engine part bills add up real fast in my limited experience. If it is an American import from a dry state the chassis might be in good nick. I'm sure i've seen worse for more money on the ebay. If you bought it it would probably be worth twice that in a few years the way things seem to be going. Always wanted an esprit, if I only had some space.
  13. Anyone going to this Hendy Lotus thing at Thruxton tomorrow ?
  14. We also have strombergs on an s4 elan, IMHO great carbs. In my experience, for what its worth, typically if a car on carbs has a fueling issue (of any kind) it usually has some degree of poor running/idle etc before cutting out. If it is just cutting out (like a switch) I would suspect the electrics as suggested. Probably worth checking for a spark if it occurs again. Lets face it half of the fun of these is fettling them but its not great when it effects reliability. best of luck with the investigations.
  15. That's fantastic condition shame its not a V8, they sounded great. Love the switch for the computer, imperial,federal or metric. One can relive the empire days at the flick of a switch๐Ÿ˜‰ , also the wood paneling and velour take me right back to learning to drive in a rover 820. Enjoy !!!
