  1. Thanks Fabian,

    does the second pipe from vent connector go back all the way to the drivers side ?  It's seems strange as the original p clips are still in my car and there's no way 2 vent pipes can fit through.  Also no space in the channel of the bulkhead.


    i still have both roll over valves, maybe this setup was different? Can't seem to figure out where the vent pipe exits the car 

  2. Engine Bay Cables

    Does anyone have a reference picture of how the handbrake cables and rear hatch cables should pass around the fuel tank ?  Should these cables pass behind the fuel tank or underneath it?

    Also trying to figure out the exit holes of the handbrake cables in the engine bay



    Door Catch

    Do I need nuts at the after the doorarrow-10x10.png catch bolt spacers and bracket or is this correct as is?




    Sorry for all the basic questions, but I'm hoping to fit things on the correct way round before moving forwards :D

  3. Hi Guys,


    finally back working on the esprit!

    Its been 6  years since I've taken the car apart.. so I am seeking some help putting it back together.

    Fuel Vent Pipes

    Is the fuel vent pipe supposed to cross over from one filler neck to the other via this channel?

    Also does the vent pipe connect from left to right and then at the T piece of the left side and out of the car via this hole next to the fuel tank access?

    Am I also missing a couple of P clips for the vent pipe to stay in place after the T connector?






    Fuel Filler Neck

    Is this order correct for the filler neck - Filler neck/Gasket/Body/Gaskets/Finisher ring ?

    Also is the neck stuck to the body via silicone and held in place with screws? Are there any fasteners to secure the screws?




  4. Hi Guys,

    It's been a while since I've posted an update.

    As some of you guys know, progress has been slowed down drastically as we've just had a baby girl :)  also just moved house this year.


    I'm progressing my way to clearing out our garage so I can trailer my lotus over to finish off the build.  Hoping to move it in a couple of months hopefully.


    In the meantime.. still chasing my mechanic to rebuild the engine!!  - lesson learned - Always try and do as much as possible yourself!
