  1. In Scotland on holiday that day I'm afraid .
  2. Fantastic to see those pictures - do you have any more info/pics ? Love the history bit
  3. I think the headlights must have been up when the bonnet was open ( or similar ) as the damage has been done by the bonnet hinges ? And to think , I thought all that would polish out
  4. Interior is off for retrim ( since Nov last year ). I've still got the gearbox and original engine but having a new engine , build should be started soon. Maybe.
  5. Body on the move ! I managed to move it from one side of the garage to another using a pump truck to lift the pallets it was resting on and positioned it under the car lift . The car lift was lowered as far as we could and then the body attached to it . The trailer was reversed under the body and the lift lowered it onto the trailer . So I've waved goodbye to it for a few months while @changes works his magic on it . I need to find some bits I couldn't lay my hands on immediately.... So apart for several boxes the Esprit is no longer in the garage. I hope to be able to get back onto the chassis build at the end of the month.
  6. Sorry Bibs , when you said “I’ve had mine for 5 months “ I thought you meant I pace 🤦🏻‍♀️ I have Octopus but the jag won’t do timed charging ... grrrr
  7. Bibs - how do you " fill up " so cheaply ? I can get 4p per Kwh from 12.30 - 4.30am but the(my ) Jag won't do timed charging , so typically it is 14p = £12/fill ( and the max I get is 232 miles ..... ) Mine is a 2019 car so maybe if yours is newer it has delayed charging ?
  8. We've had ev's for 7 years now - wife has had 2 off I3's and now has an E TRon. I've had an I pace for coming up to 2 years - brilliant car - will do standing starts in the pouring rain without troubling the traction control . Love the "one pedal " driving . Brakes are poor though. Especially initial response which can be very delayed . Handles really well for a big car . Just placed an order for a Taycan Cross Turismo to replace it . I will probably never want or have an ICE for daily driving again . Just ICE for the weekends, high days and holidays .
  9. Ah , I am on a staycation those dates in Scotland . Anyone at Shelsley to tomorrow ?
  10. Yet again no progress to report ,,,, although body is being collected next week . My dad was a serial radio fan and since he passed 2 years ago my mum has found around 70 radios ... I was up with her is Scotland last week and she was throwing a few things out and asked if I wanted this ? Oh yes , I said - it is the radio my dad bought to replace the standard one on his new 1983 VW Jetta . I'm now imagining that a 1979 Esprit owner may have done the same thing , so , if it still works , it will go into mine as I don't have an original .
  11. Engine mapping ( fuel if injection and ignition ) just needs an ecu doesn't it ? and a few feeds from throttle position , engine temp etc into the ECU ? CAN bus - what could possibly go wrong
  12. Very similar to ours - started with a 1700 xflow , built them in 1990 SE narrow body . Then changed to the C20 engine , 200bhp , 526kg .
  13. David Not committed , waiting for a cost . Mike's rally car has been fitted with it - in this case no switches required as can program the key pad as required . He's also doing an s3 . I'll wait and see , but costs with standing , can't see any downsides ??
