  1. Hi Jacques, yes I'm thinking about a 2-Eleven because I want a more extreme car to drive, the other option I'm thinking about is a Radical SR3 SL, but it's very difficult to find. Every time I'm opening my garage door I'm saying... ohhh what I beauty! I will never sell you! 😀
  2. Hello Scott, the car is still my garage queen and the water pump leak has been repaired with a new gasket and seal, everything is just perfect now. The rules are finally changed so now is possible to register a car like the esprit that is a EURO 0 car but I'm just thinking about as I know that I would never use this beauty as a daily driver, for me it's just a work of art. So, I will see but I think that would be for sale in the next future as I'd like to have another Lotus to drive and I'm thinking about a Lotus 2-Eleven, I will see. G.
  3. Hi Paul, I have a windscreen wiper motor and fuel sender from an S2.2 car, I think they are the same. G.
  4. Don't know about the difference about the S2 and Turbo tool kit and spanners but maybe this would help, it's from a post on FB by a Esprit Turbo owner and I hope he will not disappointed as I'm sharing the infos here. G.
  5. These are also available from SJ but I would like to say that light coming off even with these correct parts fitted is very poor. I have changed the standard bulb on the source with a brighter led, good upgrade but you will loose the dimming option of the rheostat. G.
  6. Pete at PNM Lotus has a Lotus esprit chassis jig, give him a call. G,
  7. Here how my glass work with the original wiring prior any fine adjustment, now is working even better. Sounds good? 😜 video-1589957412.mp4
  8. I’ll stand correct but mine have original wiring and works perfectly, well... I spent a week setting window frame guide etc.. G.
  9. if you read 12V on the wiring cable they are not...😜
  10. Pardon my ignorance about any electrical question but: what kind of difference could be wiring the motor via relays? I mean, the glass is operated by the motor and the motor is working taking current, so IMHO does not matter from which source the motor is taking current, is just 12V supplied from whatsoever source...or I'm missing something? If in the original set-up without relays you get 12V at the motor (checking with a voltmeter) the only differences would be a safety connection, that for sure, but can't understand how this would change the speed of the window glass...
  11. At the end the Italian rules allow to register and drive the car in my country so no probs until now.. that said my car still needs some details to be finished so at the moment it’s a garage queen. Don’t know if I would keep it or not. G.
  12. I made I similar research about thirteen years ago developing a new system for more efficient engine mounts, after a lot of work I have ended with a new system that was perfect for someone and not for other buyers, if I recall correctly Matt Watts and Pete also bought the kit but they were never able to fit correctly, don't ask me why as two other esprit S2 owners bought the kit and the fitting was just perfect. Hope your development would be better than mine here the topic I've started in 2008 G.
  13. Great machine Buddsy! It's great machining some parts so I have just bought this...🤣 Can't wait to work with it G.
  14. Lotus said at the time that galvanized chassis were slightly bent prior the process...
  15. I have fitted 300S valves, the biggest one you can put without changing the seats, just machining job with the correct angle, I have bought the In&Ex valves from Garry Kemp. G.
  16. Paul, I have the used one originally mounted on my car, works but needs cleaning can send you if you can't find a new one. G.
  17. Sills and front spoiler must be black so they need to be dismantled and painted properly... interior is not correct, and panel gaps on door and bonnet are awful, other than that? Love to see chassis underneath G.
  18. Aluminium is not better regarding thermal conductivity it's just lighter and maybe stronger, but as my rad man told me they are just bullshit...just have your original copper/brass rad recored to 3 core and put 11' Kenlowe fans with a alloy rad cow and you will avoid any problems.
  19. This kit is good for the S1 S2 S2.2 without any differences. yellow bushes replaced after a lot of troubles from customers With Red color type, stronger and better quality. Giorgio
  20. Thank for your reply Paul, yes the Rapture is awesome but very overpriced to me, I'm more intrigued, for budget reason...by the SR3 SL but I'm just thinking about it, also it's very hard to find a good one. The other car on top of my list is the Lotus 2-Eleven so would be interesting to hear something about the differences of the two cars, being the Radical obviously more extreme, also for the Lotus, finding a perfect LHD is not easy, I think the Lotus will keep the value better? Giorgio
  21. I mean, the SJ kit is a direct fit and does not need any mods Giorgio
