  1. Heres my others, a 2011, Eric Clapton "Beano" reissue and a 2006, Limited Edition, Pete Townshend Deluxe.
  2. Hi guys, it's been a while since I posted anything on the forum, anyway here are pics of my guitars, a Fender Custom Shop, Eric Clapton Strat in Midnight blue (meantime for sale to help pay for a couple of Masterbuilt strats I have on order) and a Gibson Custom Shop, Slash Les Paul. Les
  3. Does the exhaust system have any leaks, a leaky exhaust will cause backfiring when downshifting. Les
  4. Hi Scott, Yes, did it no problem, I traced the wires to the luggage compartment behind the washer bottle took about an hour to do the job. Les
  5. Hi guys, Anyone know of any good Doberman breeders in the U.K. Les
  6. I was informed yesterday that a blue G car sits outside the Kildrummy Garage. Les
  7. Last weekend I received an e-mail from the guy that bought my 82 S3 Turbo saying that the run from Aberdeen to Helsinki (1000 miles) went without a hitch.
  8. Sold it to a guy in Helsinki who flew over and drove it back, He's not a member but is aware of the site. Les
  9. The title says it all. Owing to family health problems( I am now a full time carer) I no longer have time to use the Esprit and I just couldn't see the sense in letting the car sit in a garage for the next few years. I will certainly keep looking into the forum and will definately be buying another Esprit. I have put a couple of ads in the for sale section with some new, unused items that I obviously no longer need, (thought I would give you guys a chance before I hit Ebay) Les
  10. My Esprit did exactly the same and it was flakes of rust in the fuel tanks partially blocking the outlet pipes . When I started the car it would tick over fine, drive a few hundred yards on the fuel in the float bowls then run very erratically eventually stopping, if I left the ignition on it would fill the bowls then do the same again. Check the fuel flow at the carb to start with then work your way back to the tank.

  12. 809 miles, I think the little B*****d that stole it did more miles than I did .
  13. You can remove/replace the tanks without taking the engine out.
