    Rear wolfrace wheel

    Looking for a rear wolfrace slot for an S1 esprit. Any condition considered. Will take pair or set if necessary. Will pay top price. Cos [email protected] +357 99404576
  3. Hi Paul, thanks for that info. I was curious to how they are fitted! Lotus really didn't want them dropping off huh! Thing is, I think they must have already have been taken off then the weirdo spoiler was created! I think I'll just leave them where are for now!
  4. Anyone know where I can find a pack of Wolfies for it? That fibre sticking out it where the weirdo side skirt fibreglass was tucked into the bottom sill. They will have to come off so that it can also be peeled off! Such a satisfying feeling! Well worth doing this just for the feeling! Thanks Bibs! Wouldn't it be great if I found a blue one too! That would make a pretty lineup!
  5. Peeling off the weirdo side skirts was such fun!
  6. 76110231G Has the correct engine fitted too. Can't make out the colour code, but I'm pretty sure it's an original red car. Engine number
  7. You know me Bibs! Have a big soft spot for esprits. Especially S1s. I don't fly to UK any more. Haven't been over since October. Trying to plan a visit at the same time as a good esprit meeting. When are the next few?
  8. I've already done a full restoration on 127G including a Full Fulcher interior. And that's to a good friend, that car was used by Top Gear for the 50 year of Bond Cars special. Richard Hammond drove it in Monaco and was then used for some filming at Pinewood Studios. Restoring an S1 is no easy task. Lots of expenses, time, searching for rare bits and labour. I really don't know if I can go through with it all again. And it would be daft to have 2 cars that are the same. Will probably ship this one over to UK sell it on to a good home.
  9. Coming soon! The side skirts get the same treatment.
  10. More of the junk comes off Looks like a lot of wasted time and effort was put into these spoilers. They had been carefully blended in Time to attack the rear junk! Better?
  11. Washed Time to rip off that horrible homemade thing thats stuck to the car! Great feeling!
  12. Came across another esprit S1 in Cyprus again. Some of you may have seen photos of a yellow 1976 esprit/F1 355 abomination with an opel astra engine i spotted in Agia Napa a few years back. That one was well beyond saving. Nothing, but nothing was unmolested on the car other than parts of the chassis. That one even had Nissan 300ZX / Diablo headlights. Well this is another one. A Red 1976 car which again had been off the road for about 5 years. I had never seen or hear of this car on the island. It was resting in side road of a small village near the deserted Nicosia Airport. Unfortunately, this one too had been in the hands of modders, with turbo look-a-like spoilers that had been styled from photos. I felt like I was looking at a stray dog that needed to be taken away from it place of suffering and saved from a certain death. I just couldn't make myself walk away from it. 2 days later, its in my garage at home. God help me! Spotted Looked inside Aircon anyone? Aircon anyone? Getting it delivered. seriously mixed emotions! Get some rest now Washed down with a pressure washer. Should dry in a couple of minutes. Its 34 degrees out here! Sprayed off all the dust!
  13. Congratulations Paul. It looks just like mine, 127G and with pretty much all of the same headaches.

    Glass sunroof swap?

    I've a glass sunroof, early Stevens, brown tint without the obscuring black strip around the edge. Near perfect condition. Wanting to swap with the later grey tint with the black obscuring band. From what I understand, the change happened about 1992. The part is at my brothers house in North london. Could swap just the glass part. Please get in touch if you're interested. [email protected] or +357 99 404576
  15. Not wanting to knock any of the other marques that you are restoring, but 70s and 80s lotus restorations are rare things. There are probably only ever a handful being carried out at any one time anywhere in the word!
