  1. I'll have to contact my printer to see what he can do, but it's not going to happen until Monday. Anyone else want in on this? With printing and postage to the US, I'm guessing $20 will cover it, but I'm just guessing here. WIll have to see what the printer has to say. Bill
  2. Thanks. I tried. I saved a couple of them, in case someone wakes up and realizes that they need one....and i still have the mold. I won't be making a lot of front bumpers, that's for sure.
  3. Everyone loved them, no one bought them. Quality wasn't up to what I was hoping for, but I hear they were better than factory.
  4. You are in luck. I just had mine out of my 79 S2, and I make a template. If @Steve V8 can't help you out, send me a message at [email protected] and I'll get it scanned in and sent to you.
  5. Sorry, I'm not taking credit for that modification.It was mark Pfeffer's work. I was just reposting it on my web site,
  6. So, Mr. Restoration. Any tips on refitting the doors? I was thinking of something thick that wouldn't mar the paint, such as towels, plastic signs, etc. to position the door int he opening properly, then reach in and tighten the bolts. Luckily my windscreen is out, so the top bolt would be easy to access. The lower bolt would require getting into the Lotus position. Thanks, Bill
  7. I've been thinking about this for a LONG time, and have been working on it for most of this year, but I've FINALLY gotten a decent urethane bumper built. I had a fiberglass unit on there before, but I would rather have the correct urethane, and I'm reassembling a car that needs bumpers as well. Hopefully I'll make sure front bumper this fall. Send me a message if you are interested. I still have a few left.
  8. Lots of really good information in all of the emails, as well as the Files section here: I have some good information on S1/S2 Esprits on my web site:
  9. John, I have lots of useful Lotus information on my web site: You might check it out. There is a LOT of good information in emails of this group: Best of luck, Bill
  10. What I find amazing is that you were able to do all of that great work in a SHOEBOX. I have a 28' x 28' garage, and run out of room some times.
  11. Converting a regular black Esprit into a JPS car was a popular thing to do back in the day, since it looks so sharp, and was just a matter of some interior changes and some gold strips. You might have one of those cars.
  12. WRONG! Fuses are rated for the wiring, not for the load that it is supporting. If the wiring is only rated for 10 amps, putting a 15 amp fuse in just means that the wiring will melt before the fuse blows. My S2 had three fans running on 12 ga wire. I don't know how much current the original fans draw, but the Spal fans that I put in drew 25 amps total. I put in a 10 ga wire for the fans, and another for the headlights, adding relays for the headlights. You can get Spal fans that blow or suck. Since you are buying new, high quality fans, order the ones that you need. Sucking is m
  13. Sorry, but I don't know where I got it from, but I did not assemble it myself.
  14. Yep. that's me. The short version of the link is just I'm a long-time Esprit owner, 29 years for my S2 JPS car, and over 4 years for my project Esprit "Charro". I continue to learn things all the time, and am happy to share my information.
