  1. Well It looks like I have sold my S2 My good friend here in the Falklands has decided to buy it and is flying to the UK to collect it and take it to his home in Staffordshire. He collects RS Fords and likes factory spec so I Know that it will be completely stripped and returned to how it was in 1979. And the best bit I can use it when im in town. Sorry to those who were interested in buying. Hope you find another soon. Mike
  2. Will be advertising my Esprit next week.offers on £3750 Cant believe im doing this what a loss after all that cash I spent on it. If only I could live in my own country
  3. Not a happy bunny today as I have run out of time again to fit the wiring. My S2 ESPRIT is now for sale Living in the Philippines and working in the Falkland Islands only gives me 2 weeks a year in the UK so I have to give up to clear some space in my mothers garage. Not sure what £££££££ i want yet but will let you know. Anyone interested pm me and I can give you details photos etc. Leaving the UK on sunday so will get my brother to do the selling
  4. Got the wiring loom out. Clipped and soldered bits n things and now its in a big pile on the bedroom floor Im off for 3 weeks so I have 2 weeks when I get back to finish this wiring for good. What are the odds ? get your bets in now.
  5. Does anyone know where I can get bulb holders for the instrument warning lights. I have loads of holders but the warning lights are smaller than the rest of the instrument lights.
  6. Well so much for that last bit on almost having all the wiring done. Got home this week after not seeing my esprit for over a year to find the new (well was new when I started doing the wiring 5 years ago) all chewed up by mice So today I pulled most of it out and Im going to start all over again. I have a week at home without the family so this will be the first time in over 10 years I will get real time on the car. Got 2 more weeks free in febuary aswell so lets hope it all comes together before I have to go overseas again. To top if off someone smashed the side window on the garage a few months ago and glass is everywhere in and under the car. Cant take the car out the garage yet as its up against the wall so need to get a new jack to pull it over. Will get one tommorow. Must get some tech shots up this time as this Is the projects & resto forum after all he he.
  7. Hi guys its been a while since I last checked in here. My father passed away in may which threw me off for a while. Antonio yes that is the correct starter motor (hi torque). The original wire mesh vent on my car was a bit torn up. I had a bit of aluminium sheet lying around so cut it to size and drilled holes in it. It just sits behind the original surround. I did get quite a bit of wiring done last time home. Just the instrument warning lights to do then test it all. Home again over christmas so I hope all the electrics will finally be done and I will through a new cam belt on to be safe as Its been lying for a while. I know its slow but Im getting there
  8. Anyone have a copy of the color wiring diagram for the s2? Sure it was on here but can't find it . Slow progress here but don't panic I will be back on it in July this year when I'm home. Just finishing the garage build. Thanks +
