  1. Hi Pete, Probably can help with welding no problem. I have a little mig welder here, I don't know the state of gas but I have steel and stainless wire ( I am not the best welder as I don't get enough practice but can have a look). Also know a professional welder at our friends engineering company at Thruxton.

    Lotus Elan

    You could try sue miller ( ) I believe she had some when we were looking at bits for our beloved S4 SE FHC. It was a few years ago though.
  3. Sorry to hear that chaps, hope you all stay well.
  4. Hi chaps, I hope to be there as well. I had to limp 1/2 way home from the last one with the dreaded orange light on (bloody cars). It's no fun in limp mode so I'll have too see how it goes !!!
  5. 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.
  6. I remembered on the way home it was Phenolic resin, (nasty stuff). Just had to get that of my chest. Another great evening.
  7. Just seen the post, hopefully make it along too.
  8. @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˜‰
  9. Best of luck with that Dean hope all goes well.
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. Thinking of you Kev. Hope it was all successful, you make a swift recovery and can get back behind the wheel soon
  13. You threw your hat in his ring, that sounds painful ๐Ÿ˜ญ No wonder he didn't accept your generous offer.
  14. 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.
  15. Covid : not just a pandemic but also turns out to be the perfect excuse for just about anything.
