  1. Morning all, while away at Le Mans Classic last week, the mesh fell out of one of the door speaker covers, never to be seen again. The rim is still in place, it's just the mesh thats gone. Any steer on where to get a new speaker cover, I dont imagine I will get just the mesh? Car is a 2009 launch edition.
  2. Thats brilliant Chris, much appreciated, I'll pm you
  3. Thanks Chaps, Chris I'll let you know if I need one, just let me know how much. Out of interest where did you get the clear ones?
  4. As part of my GT3 crash repair I need a new side repeater, to save a big search, what are they off, I'm guessing some GM product?

    M20 crash

    Yep that was me, on the way back from Lotus Ypres event with Nige in his Europa S, when a [email protected]%$ in a white van ran into Nige at speed which caused Nige to lose control and hit me. Hopefully my Esprit will be repaired, its currently at Beaconsfield Workshop awaiting a decision from the insurer

    M20 crash

    I Love that picture above. Quick update, My car is currently at Beaconsfield Workshop (thanks for the recommendation Bibs). I went to see it last week and chat with the chaps at Beaconsfield. There is more damage than I originally thought, but IMO not a write off. In terms if parts that are required, it needs a complete drivers door, front splitter, side repeaters and strangely sun roof catches. The front offside OZ Nova wheel is damaged, but could be repairable, the rest of the damage is paint and fibreglass, and will need some fab, and a total respray. I have sent them contacts for parts, and a link to a Sport 350 door for sale on Ebay from DVB. They are getting it up in the air this week to make sure there is no mechanical, suspension or chassis damage, then they will give my insurance the estimate. Luckily I'm with Hiscox via AIB, and an agreed value policy, Beaconsfield deal with Hiscox regularly and said they are first rate. So watch this space, my main worry is if the Nova is not repairable, getting another one.

    Leather care

    I went to a lecture that Nick did a few years back, he basically said if you try to feed leather on a post 1990 car your wasting your time, the modern sealed dye will not allow the food in. Unfortunately all you can do is clean it, it will eventually crack, then you have to either repair or replace it.

    THere was a guy who called the emergency services who saw everything, and gave a statement to the police

    M20 crash

    As Nige said we are both ok, which is more than can be said for the cars. Anyone who says Lotus cars are fragile needs a slap like the van driver who caused the carnage, we all walked away with a few cuts and bruises. I’m hoping my car is repairable with only bodywork damage to the front and drivers side. The car means the world to me and we have shared some great adventures, would be a shame to lose it because of some tosser probably on his phone
  11. I know much has been written on this subject over the years, so here is one more thread. When I got back from the NEC last weekend while putting the car away in the darl I caught the passenger side mirror with the fram of my car cover and snapped the internal turret. Last time I needed parts I got them from a European CX specialist, but checking their website ( ) they only have complete mirrors. Still while looking I found a link on Pistonheads to a TVR specialist who stocks mirror parts including the often broken turret at £24.95 + VAT. So 2 ordered, one as a spare, simples
  12. Put me down for a set of stainless brackets, my eye is drawn to them every time I open the tailgate
