  1. Hi Tony! So are you bidding on the her. Could be able to pick her up cheap.... I bet all the original paperwork is gone though. too bad!
  2. Peter, My sincere condolences... Just remember the good times. That will make your father happy up there... I know its tough and numbing, but embrace your family and friends in your time of need. Your in my thoughts, Peter.
  3. The 88 clips into a carrier. Top A082U7177F, Sides 2 required A082U7178F I haven't fit them yet. You do need to miter them yourself. I hope I ordered the correct ones?
  4. If I were in the market for a drag racer, I'd buy it! Think about it.... a LOTUS doing a 9 second quarter mile! That is a feat! No real Lotus Esprit can do a 9 second run! It is very well thought out and very well engineered. Granted he placed a rear bumper on the front but he did do a good job blending it in. It's a tube chassis with Lotus panels bolted to it. Its not really a Lotus as is any drag racing caring car... they are all tube chassis with plastic panels draped over them. There is nothing sacrilegious about it! Just my 2Cents...
  5. Contact Ray at RD Enterprises 01-215-538-9323 he sent the last one he had to me and I posted it to John. It was $56 with shipping to me then another few dollars to John... Extremely expensive for a gasket that doesn't really fit. I'm sorry John, I was hoping you wouldn't have much trouble....
  6. Does look like a fun time. We had salt trucks out this week, so its sleep time for my Esprit until March.... Looks like beautiful weather in NC. Wish I was there!
  7. Hi Jamie, Did you email the admin Martin at LotusBuzz? I can PM him if you wish. Greg
  8. oh no!!! Not that piece of crap again.... I'm not one for torching Esprits but, this one needs to be burnt to the ground! Sacrilege what they did to that Esprit!
  9. Have you replaced all the Engine cooling hoses? JAE has a great silicone set that is a little cheaper than OEM. I would go ahead and replace all rubber hoses throughout the car. Check your petrol tank evap lines. They are probably rotten as well.
  10. So sad to see her go... It's a friend's Esprit. I can personally vouch that this is a great car that needs nothing.. Stupid cheap price! The market has really hit hard...
  11. Price is way low.... I would suspect a scam. Notice there is no other information other than serial number which is clearly visible on the front windscreen. Any person could snap those pics and place an ad. SCAM! Personally, I stay away from this deal... "If the price is too good to be true it probably isn't"
  12. Yes the Kit by itself is $80. Jeff recommended replacing all the outboard stuff as well. pinion, gaiters, and so on.. It totaled $156. When I get home I'll list what all was included.
  13. After checking my receipt the entire kit was $156.00 without ends. I didn't know it didn't include the track ends so I'm not sure if I got a good deal... Whats the point of rebuilding the rack if you don't replace the ends?
  14. Now I have to go back and look at my receipt as I know I didn't get the track ends...
  15. I paid around $250 for my rebuild kit from JAE. IIRC I haven't done the rebuild yet as the weather is too nice to take her off the road.... Follow Travis's website.
  16. I'm interested do you have a linky? I need a passenger side.
  17. At the time, the steering column and steering wheel were removed from the car, but it was still a pain. I broke 3 drill bits, one tap, and my cordless drill when I threw it across the garage... The pedals were cheap but replacing my cordless drill and repairing the hole in the wall... Thanks for the kind compliments everyone.
  18. I really like the pedal feel. The "go" pedal is raised ever so sightly that really makes for quick foot action, like you said.... Although I haven't practiced heel-toe technique well enough to fully appreciate it. I get lots of compliments on the pedals, though...
  19. I fitted the same ones you did, Alan!! I used better mounting hardware and drilled and tapped the pedals for a better fit.
  20. I like it! Looks sharp! wish I could see it in the flesh...
  21. I'd buy Martin's Esprit in a second. Wing doesn't really bother me but I'd put a 93 SE wing in preference for the lower wing. His car is STUNNING!
  22. I was told informally that 225/60R15 will work as an alternative. I couldn't find anyone that had anything V rated in 235! has Kumho Ecsta ASX 195/60V R15 for $50 each with 225/60V R15 $58. CHEAP!!! They also had Michelin Primacy MXV4 V $139 F $124 R
  23. Nice!!!!! Thanks for sharing, Paul.
