  1. We will see you at Silverstone, be great to get 2 GTE's parked up together, what days are you there?
  2. Hi all, time to update the registry as last week my partner Gina and I became the very proud owners of No8. Thanks to Brian for allowing us to become the custodian of this fabulous car, and thanks for the great hospitality he and his wife showed us, a true gent. I know it wasnt easy for him to let it go but we will always be thankful he did. We are based in Kidderminster near Worcester if there are any other midlands based GTE owners in the midlands we'd love to meet you. Few events planned with the car over the summer first of which will be Classic Nostalgia at Shelsley Walsh next weekend, then Silverstone Classic where the car will be on the Lotus Drivers Club stand, then Supercar Fest at Shelsley and of August, then finally Salon Prieve in September. At most events it will share space with our beloved Esprit GT3.
  3. Im interested in a GTE, and see that No8 is on Autotrader, but nowhere else including here, is it actually for sale Brian? Tried sending you a message but says you cannot receive them. Ade
  4. Oh i dont know, I am getting on a bit these days. I have taken the unit apart, and as I said above Im getting good resitance across the resistor itself, but nothing at the spades. To test I've taken the resistor off the board and solders a couple of wires to it and popped it back in, works a treat. Conscious that these things can get hot I'm going to put it back in the casing and fill with resin.
  5. yes Ian, there must be a problem with the board, as I'm getting about 3.6 ohms, at either end of the resistor so I know thats ok, but nothing across the terminals. Ive taken the resistor off the board, and soldered wires and spades to it, and it works a treat
  6. SJ are telling me the secondary fuel injector resistor which has died on my 1996 GT3 is obsolete and unavailable. So what are my/our options. Does anyone have another source, or are these things repairable? Any help would be much appreciated. Ade
  7. Problem with having a spare is, if your out on the road and need to use it, where do you put the roadwheel, cuz in wont fit in the front boot
  8. im a bit worried cuz I used up all my best sweary words stripping mine down, what am I going to use to put is back together??????
  9. Blimey I thought mine was bad, biggest issue I had was with the top wishbone rear pins, worse than trying to get out the bottom rear links. All the rest came off ok, apart from the bent lower inner on the drivers side, but the good old recipricating saw, saw that off. All off to the shot blasters and powder coaters now, and loads of new bits ordered from SJ, as well as a set of dampers and springs from Gaz
  10. I got some great flat metallic stickers from a euro Ebay seller, for £13. 60mm is the size should anyone want a set, better than paying over £100 for a set of centres from SWL
  11. as part of my GT3 rebuild I needed a new pair of fronts for my Nova's, as I have Goodyear F1 on the back I wanted to match, but it now seems they dont do the 235 anymore, so I have gone for 245
  12. afternoon all, the bodyshop are in the process of rebuilding the mirrors to go back on my GT3, and the inner metal frame is cracked where the turret which usually breaks is screwed to on the drivers side (offside) mirror, does anyone have a frame, or a mirror to sell? Not bothered about condition or colour as all the rest of it is fine, if you have let me know price and location. This is a post 93 Citroen CX type mirror.
  13. Quick question, does anyone know what diameter the stickers are on OZ Nova centre caps? As part of my rebuild I want to fit new ones, but I dont fancy paying over £100 for a set of new ones when I only need to refurb the sticker. I have found a Euro seller who does Lotus centre cap stickers in various sizes both flat and domed for £13, just need the size. car is currently 120 miles away so cant just pop out and check.
  14. I know I keep saying this, but getting close now. I have taken the opportunity to get the seats retrimmed as they were looking a bit tired, other pictures are of the black detail being added to the body, as well as the referbed wheels, and the reassembly of the body.
  15. The recipe for TG that the BBC cant get right is very simple, essentially what made old TG great was the fact it was 3 mates who know cars inside out having a laugh, and we all wanted to be them, being paid to mess about.
