  1. Hi chaps, love to come if there's space for one more (although technically I should only count as a half). Are we limited to 6 ? by the way there is also the white horse in Stockbridge (by the roundabout)
  2. Feel for you and your family following the loss of pickle, its really tough but it sounds as if you made the right decision. All the best for the future.
  3. Who could not want him?. Fully agree, rescues all the way. Have had some challenges with mistreated dogs but plenty of patience, understanding and biscuits gets through most problems and ultimately very rewarding.
  4. I really feel for you, been through this a few times and it never gets easier. 19 is a great age and she's clearly well loved. I've only had vet intervention but being with them to comfort them at the end was important to me and if the dogs in pain at all you really have no choice. As you can imagine it is extremely unpleasant emotionally but it seemed completely painless (other than the injection), I think they sedated Max first so just fell asleep while I stroked him and he looked quite peacefull (he was a young dog with untreatable cancer and was in a bit of discomfort). Dogs are r
  5. I know photos can flatter but i Love that, I have a real soft spot for Lancia. Only problem is with the salt on the roads it was probably dissolving as you watched.
  6. Now that is what I call a Brave restoration. It would have been handy when this happened to our village. If only it was every year.
  7. Bugger thought it was tomorrow, Just finished for the eve and turned on the tablet. Hope it was a good evening.
  8. Just came across this, thought it may be of interest to some. 16th – 18th October Goodwood SpeedWeek
  9. Kenny, your cars so bloody fast you probably can't help but get there early. If its like school will we have to drink in our vests and pants for turning up without a Lotus? I was wondering if loving Lotus classes as a religion (or maybe just a mental disorder) as I believe there's exemptions. Lot of similarities when you think of it, blind faith that it'll get you there being the obvious one. Hope all are safe and well.
  10. Great to see everyone the other night and the weather was nice, the Lotus gods were truly shining on us. Managed to Off Road successfully out of the car park but could hear the grass brushing the floor pan. Didn't get much of a chance to chat to you Terry but admired your excel as you left, have to take a closer look some time but it looked like a really nice one. I will also have to take a closer look at yours Dean in better light but it looked really good. I tried to tempt Mike into a trade with my 15yr old diesel Leon but he declined, don't no why (didn't realise but rear e
  11. Cheers, ill give it a go (now that's what I call good service)
  12. Sounds like a plan. Having some trouble here with TLF, lost half of website and can't interact. I am now on a different browser which currently seems OK (probably updated something somewhere) Anyone else having issues, or is it just me?
  13. Just a thought, the weather looks good for tomorrow.
  14. Well it couldn't be any worse. Sounds like a good idea to me.
  15. No Problem. I will try to keep it short and sweet, otherwise I may get a bit carried away/in-depth and you will probably lose the will to live. Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question (I know cause I've tested it many times) I haven't seen your esprit so can't comment on that but Pete's is stunning.
  16. Hopefully I should be there all being well and I am always happy to talk lotus especially technical stuff. Let me know if you'd like me to bring my little meter along and show you the basics (it probably will only take about 2 mins as there's only really a couple of settings you'd ever need) In case there are any specific questions you could bring the wiring diag. along. Hopefully pete will be able to make it, I believe he's a bit of an esprit guru. On a completely separate note I've been driving the elan today for the 1st time since declaring it a death trap (to the old mans annoy
  17. Hi Neil, Sorry to hear of your grief I am not familiar with the esprit but vehicle electrics although seemingly complicated are in fact really simple, I would agree with paul a cheapo multimeter is invaluable (I think mine was about a tenner) although you do need some basic understanding to use it (If necessary I can bring mine along and show you how to use it at a meet). I also find a bench power supply very useful for component bench testing. The most useful thing however is the wiring diagram, depending how comprehensive /correct it is it should tell you the nature/functioning of t
  18. A heads-up to any unaware souls, there is a new thread "Hants Virtual Meeting" to follow if interested. Its weird, the last virtual meeting seemed very real to me. Tony
  19. I'm good to go, Weather looks fine for tomorrow (light cloud and gentle breeze 18deg).
  20. Sorry to hear that Neil, I didn't notice anything unusual when you started up and left, however wasn't paying particular attention. Hopefully the code will lead to a fix that's simple and cheap. I hope the esprit master cylinder replacements going Ok it would be great to see that out. Having consulted my busy schedule I may just be able to squeeze it in, hopefully the Elise will be in one piece, just changed the lwr engine stay (bit of a fuck up from ordering bits on ebay at 3 in the morning-compounded by my decision to do things the hard/stupid way actually turned out ok as I'd rather b
  21. Gone but not forgotten (what was it again?) Ah well I suppose you'll be making an Uno Turbo fan very happy. Always good to help out fellow car guys. Be good to see the Landy as long as you don't trundle over me in it, hate to think what it could do to the Elise.
  22. I can say they both definitely work but which one and when seemed a mystery. The lights got a bit disco at one point, me Kenny and Neil were playing which light next (we all lost). I don't remember anything being mentioned for the next one but I was chatting with Paul at the cars for a bit.
  23. That was a great spot for a meet, cheers to kevin. Good to see you all and shame to miss others. Paul you're probably aware but we noticed that there was something very strange going on with your rear lights last night as you left the car park.
  24. I'll be up for that. Sorry you can't make it Dean, was looking forward to seeing your new ride.
