  1. Today I finally managed to have some spare time to work on the Esprit. As my car is basically a rolling chassis, and an extensive list of parts is required to get her back on the road, I have decided to re-design parts and manufacture them myself, due to poor quality of secondhand parts at over inflated prices and availability.

    First of all I will start with the interior as this is almost totally stripped, and I have already managed to purchase a few items of trim.

    The tunnel trim pieces I think are most probably from an S4, but I have made them fit.

      Wow, that's a huge job you've got there and really looking forward to seeing the transformation.

      You have allowed me to understand where VW got the inspiration for its Polo Harlequin!  :)

      Yes lots to do, but as the cars are getting rare and so are the parts, it's an ideal opportunity to put my design skills to work. 

      I thought exactly the same as I took the picture, that it looked like the harlequin VW polo. 

  2. After many hours of research, well actually I think it was more like several weeks of research on engine and gearbox combinations, finally by accident I found a engine and gearbox already adapted for a mid engine build.
