  1. Stunning photos mate, It was a great evening. Thanks MSC and an extra big thank you to Martin who stopped to help after a wire detached itself from the fuel pump on Michelle's Elan.
  2. Hi Paul, Thanks for getting back to us, it would be great to have you and your Esprit attend. You would need to be on site before 9am until 6pm
  3. Hi All, North Kent Lotus Group have been invited to represent Lotus at The British Motor Show, Farnborough International, GU14 6FD, Thursday 19th - Sunday 22nd August. We would like to extend this invite to Forum members. For those wishing to join us, we would only ask that you become a member of NKLG (£5) in order to be covered by our insurance. This iconic show returns with a new format celebrating all things motoring. They will be putting on 3 live stunt shows per day with Paul Swift in the live arena. There will be classic car parades, record breakers, solar cars, live tests, mountain bike displays and over 30 National owners clubs will be displaying their pride and joys, including NKLG. Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townsend from Car SOS, Mike Brewer from Wheeler Dealers and Motoring expert Mike Rutherford are among the celebrities attending this fantastic show. This event is free to drivers, and for those choosing to attend all 4 days your passenger will also go free. You are welcome to attend however many or as few days as you wish, if less than 4 days you will receive a 10% discount code for you passenger. Press day is on Thursday (over 1000 press passes have been issued) so this is the day to really promote Lotus. For those wishing to stay in the area we have negotiated a good rate with The Holiday Inn, just 10 minutes walk from the show, this includes bed, breakfast and evening meal. As the event is being held within the airfield the security is extremely tight, therefore it will be completely safe to leave cars in place overnight if you are attending consecutive days. Please let us know asap if you wish to come along. Home - The British Motor Show Jon & Michelle Langridge Events Organisers NKLG
  4. My Esprit is running Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3, all round I couldn't find the right size fronts so opted for 245/40 R17 out front., I used this chart to calculate the next best fit, Tyre Size Calculator ( Hope it helps
  5. Thanks for that. Now, does anyone know where I can get a regular supply of extra time on the cheap?😕
  6. Thanks for the info, I will at some point strip the door and give everything a good clean and lube. Do you remember from what Vauxhall the actuator came from? Cheers Jon
  7. Hi Derek Thanks for the tips, decided I'm going to strip the door down clean and lube everything and see what happens, Cheers Jon
  8. Hi All, Has anyone had and knows how to sort this? When I lock my Esprit (96 V8) with the alarm remote the drivers door keeps unlocking, the passenger door stays locked and the alarm arms ok. If I keep hitting the arm button the door eventually stays locked, I can lock the door with the key ok. Cheers for any help Jon
  9. Hi Sam, Welcome to the forum, my take on the project is, if you feel up to it, nothing beats the feeling of driving a car, that you have spent time blood, sweat and tears restoring to an event and talking to even just one admiring person about the problems/fun you encountered during the restoration project. Take a chance, make a low opening offer, if you get it great, if it gets to much move it on but live safe in the knowledge that you have helped save another rare Lotus.
  10. Hi All, Hope you had a good day. We're at the end of a close so not much passing foot traffic here either, the neighbours are used to seeing our cars, I did talk to one of them, he has an Excel that he's been working on for years. Recons to get an mot on it some time this year. There are 3 Lotus owners in our road.
  11. Thank you Dave & Danny for joining in, and thanks Dave for helping spread the word👍👏. Hope everyone taking part has a great day.
  12. Thank you, hope you have a fantastic day and attract loads of admirers ( for your car)👍
  13. Brilliant, Thank you and well done. I hope you have a fantastic day👏
  14. Hi All, Hope you are all well (and still sane). As we have been unable to attend any events or shows with our lovely and probably now very shiny Lotus and are unlikely to be able do so this year I've attached a link for "the Classics for Carers" stay at home car show. Please take a look and maybe buy a rally plate or window sticker. Who knows, in the hopefully not to distant future it might be bit of fun to look out for other classics displaying there own plates or stickers and know that we did our bit! Take care, hope to see you all soon. Jon
  15. Hi All. Due to the current COVID-19 (corona virus) Crisis this event has been cancelled by the event organisers. Thank you for your understanding. BW Jon & Michelle
  16. Philip who? I'm sorry but I'm just a little bored with hearing about people being this way or that, so what get over yourselves, your not special your "normal" isn't that how they want to be treated. The only one making a big thing about it is PS. I suppose I should feel sorry for his wife but I can't, she is choosing to stand by him and if she is happy to forgive his adultery, because if he has been with another man that's what it is, then good for her. Now I've more important things to worry about, what's for tea.
