  1. Nicely done with the roof - You put in alot of effort to get that sorted
  2. Oh dear - I didn't know Moley had passed. Genuinely sad to hear this. Thoughts out to his family - Rest in peace old chap.
  3. Might be stating the obvious, but have you tried Mark at LotusBits for an original one?
  4. Quick question for anyone who's pulled an interior out of an Esprit - I don't see any obvious fasteners for the A-Panels and cant rails. Is it a question of just pull and hope for the best, or am I missing the obvious. The bits marked 3,4 and 7 in diagram below. Have taken my brave pills and tackling my interior re-vamp. Cheers
  5. Hi folks - I'm keen to get hold of a Giugiaro steering wheel and crash pad, as fitted to the '86 and onward Excels. Can anyone help? Thanks
  6. Maybe have a look here End result looks pretty good. I can take a photo of my dash if it'll help to show what goes where - It's an '84 though
  7. Another recommendation for @Steve V8 Full set of carpets for interior and boot in the production line for me too. (And I'm in Auckland NZ, so shipping not an issue)
  8. Thanks for suggesting SWLC - New wastegate manifold courtesy of Kathy in my spanner man's grubby mitts this morning Just under a week from enquiring on here to delivered - not bad eh? Seems they're readily available. SWLC, SJ have new, and JAE have good used ones for anyone else looking.
  9. Thanks! Never used them before. Says they have stock on their website, have fired off an enquiry.

    Wastegate Manifold

    Yip - That old chunk of iron. Anyone got something useable they're prepared to part with? It's for an '84 Esprit Turbo. If anyone can help, I'd be extremely grateful. Cheers - Mark
  11. Hi folks - In need of a replacement wastegate manifold as mine's beyond saving. Are these lumps of cast iron available off the shelf, or has some clever bugger come up with a replacement? My options at the moment are trying to find new old stock, or some friendly TLF'er who has a good used one lying around in the shed somewhere. Getting the old one welded up (not easy or cheap as it's cast iron) and re-machining & tapping to make good again. Getting some flanges made, a clever bit of fabricating and adapting an aftermarket dump valve (HKS or similar). Going all out with custom headers, and bespoke exhaust and turbo system. The above options range from not cheap to eye-watering. Someone out there must have been in the same predicament, so current thoughts and work-around's welcome
  12. Thanks for the input there - about where I thought they'd be. May look at re-patriating one back to the UK
  13. Any thoughts on what a cosmetically very tidy '78 Series 2 with sound mechanicals and plenty of service history would go for these days? Asking for a friend
  14. Sent you a PM - I'm in Birkdale, North Shore and have just the man to sort your Elan out, get it complied and registered.
  15. Got a lead on who can supply a replacement heater panel Andy? I drew these up years ago when I couldn't find a replacement, got one on my car, but needs doing properly to smarten things up a bit.
