  1. Thanks do much for your organising efforts (& staying power!) Martin. A real shame that all the corona chaos meant we lost the area. I might still head over as its a good event and if you're looking to organise for spring 21 then certainly put my name on the list!
  2. Thought I should update this post with an admission of stupidity!.. i realised later that, even though the buttons look like they have stickers applied infact the icons are part of the buttons themselves. So if you have the same thing with them wearing off then alas the only option is to swap them for new ones. Sourcing from JAE looks good but I managed to get my headlight button direct from Lotus so give them a try also. There's a chance you can reach up and change over the lowest buttons on either side but really you should factor on having to remove the dash trim and do the job properly
  3. An update to this post as I've been searching for a good match to my '92 Magnolia Leather. Fortunately I have the original leather blanking panel for the stereo still and this has lived in a box pretty much from new I reckon. Connolly seem to be back and supplying through UK Hide https://www.ukhide.co.uk/product/connolly-parkside-5133-magnolia/ I received a sample of this - it's very beautiful but the grain is too smooth and the colour is a bit too light... plus the cost is way up there! The way I hear it Lotus ensured the Connolly name was in their brochure, but didn't use the expensive fine
  4. Nice work Jukka, have subscribed and look forward to watching some of your content as it goes up. Ben
  5. I've checked this out on the link Geert and I think it's the other way isn't it? I have an SE running 245/50's on the rear but its time to change and due to lack of options I'm considering dropping to 245/45's. Inputting this into the link shows me that rather than doing 70mph the speedo would show 67mph? Now I'm even more confused! haha!
  6. Yep Sat 25th would work for me as well
  7. Hey Martyn Alas mines '92 so you'll need to reduce your Pre '90 count
  8. Yep I'd be there for that Martyn, particularly with a 'club' area. I went to the June scramble last year and also agree - great all round array of motors and a very organized event.
  9. A few of the stickers on the instrument buttons on my binnacle have become worn so that you can't see the icons clearly (particularly Headlights). Does anybody know where I could buy a new set or does anyone have a printable file of them that I could use?
  10. Ah, The Newlands Corner meet would suit me perfectly. Do you know where I can find details on that? Thanks Pete
  11. Ouch! You never quite know on these things until you really start digging eh, might put a call in to Paul Matty to see if they've got some notes however. The v5 only shows 2 previous private owners, no dealers, so I shall remain hopeful!
  12. Blinkin ek I hope not Barry! This ones been pretty much unused for 20 years. So I'm playing the 'low mileage, everything original' vs 'what will collapse after 20 years sat looking pretty' game so far we're not doing too bad - ABS light has decided to say hello, but Max500 is investigating whilst I cross my fingers (as I hear 1st gen ABS can be a right pain to sort)
  13. Yep you got it... on a run to Max500 for some initial TLC I'm in SE1 Pete. How about you? Seems like London is the only region not covered by club representation... but then I guess there's not much use to be had for a 90s supercar in a mile long traffic jam haha! Thanks so much, will do!
  14. Hi All After many months of visiting the forum and benefiting from all your wisdom I'm very happy to now be the proud (and hopefully vaguely well informed!) owner of a '92 High Wing. Looking forward to being able to take a bit more of an active role in scene now and hopefully put something back. Here she is taking her first drink at the watering hole Ben
