  1. Another topic in another thread prompted this memory from about about 12 years ago when I hadn't long had my S2 I had learned that the light switches were also used on TR7s and flicking through the local green or yellow free Ads paper, noticed someone local was breaking TR7s. Phoned him up one evening and mentioned I was interested in the switches "which ones"? "well any really, I know they can be dismantled and the bits inside cleaned and swapped about but its the headlamp switch i`m after mainly , but anything will do" "Hmm, im sure I`ll have something, I got a couple of the centre consoles with a few of the switches mounted in it" "sounds good, How much do you want for one of the console panels"? "Err...What Mk TR7 do you have"? "well heres the thing , its not for a TR7, Ive not long bought a Lotus Esprit and they use the same Lucas switchgear so I`m needing a headlamp switch for it and any other switches will come in handy for spares" "F*ck off and don't ring me back" speechless , still to this day I don't understand why the reaction
  2. just read this, truly sorry for your loss Mark thoughts are with you
  3. pennies https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/The-Lotus-Book-Series-3-The-Complete-History-of-Lotus-Cars-by-William-Taylor/332757196628?epid=104387205&hash=item4d79dfdf54:g:qqEAAMXQeW5TZ1-8:rk:3:pf:0
  4. yes, otter switch is fed from the fusebox , when the water temperature rises, the otter switch activates and sends the live feed to a relay that cuts the fans in
  5. +1 prevention always better than cure
  6. current draw will be between 100- 150 amps, sometimes more depending on temperature conditions , go for 322/0.30, 25mm², 10mm, 170A , cross section is 10mm or go next size up 35mm², 12mm cable cross section size, rated to 240A. If Halfords don't have it, find your local Durite stockist, they should sell it to you by the metre
  7. Tremendous Vehicles Reunited .....hang on , that's not right

  9. you could try putting some of those unibond aero 360 things in when your parked usually quite cheap in asda or tescos...if they don't work you've only lost a tenner
  10. Wonder if the Passat later version calipers would fit, the ones with the electric handbrake, and would that retrofit be legal?
  11. for electrics, I found one of these power probes invaluable
  12. at some point in the future, what you are wearing as everyday clothes, will be known as a costume
  13. Anyone know where I can get one of these nylon bristle pads for the shelf side...
