  1. Seling my esprit book and dvd collections... two seperate lots on ebay... I know most of you probably already have everything here, but for any newcomers, this might be the only chance to get some of these books!

  2. Hey, I am selling my GAZ Shock and H&R spring setup and have had some interest in it but I was curious about something since I have gotten numerous inquiries about it... Here is what I currently have: Fronts - 200mm (8 inch) length, 60mm ID, 286lbs Rears - 250mm (10 inch) length, 60mm ID, 229lbs PUKesprit lists their GAZ shocks as being available for all Esprits, but they have the choice of "Type K" springs for cars without wheelarch extensions like the SE, S4 etc, and "Type L" for cars with wheelarch extensions like the Sport 300 and V8. I asked Marcus at PUK about this and he said it all had to do with longer springs for the cars with wheelarch extensions and larger wheels, and that my springs would work on a V8, but it "may sit a bit low". I need to know if the springs I am offering with my kit will work on V8 Esprits and how "low sitting" we are talking. The shocks are adjustable for ride height so couldnt you just crank the ride height setting up if the springs lower it too much? Thanks in advance! Jamie
  3. Getting rid of some of my collection so I thought Id give you guys a heads up here as I know there are a few other people who collect this type of stuff... SMTS 1/43 scale Esprit SE model kit, unbuilt: Radcon 1/15 yellow Esprit SE Turbo R/C car in box: Radcon 1/15 red Esprit SE Turbo R/C car, loose, no controller: 4 Maisto / Shell 1/38 Esprit SE pullback cars, all in boxes:
  4. that image originally came from a japanese model making website that I found and i then put it on my site with a "wanted" line beside it and also started a thread about it on here as well
  5. Looks good!!!!!!!! and the front and rear bumpers ;) you could use the side skirts from the monogram sport 300 for the correct SE sides: the rear bumper/lower valence is SE correct as well: the front lower valence has the sport 300 fender flares moulded into it but if you could dremel these down you would have the correct fromt as well:
  6. I always thought these just had a simple spoiler you could include to make it more close to the.... does it have different side sills and a different front and rear bumper that match the SE? can you take any pics of the SE parts?
  7. That is pretty vague You also emailed me about this. Can you provide more details at all? possibly some pictures or get me in contact with the gentleman who now owns it? Thanks! Jamie
  8. applied with a sponge brush like these: it goes on pretty thick and does not run... i think i only put one base coat on there and then when it dried just touched up the areas that light still got through... so like a very light touch-up second layer
  9. 3M makes a single step black primer that worked perfect on mine when I did the re-do... check this old thread out for details and pics, its somewhat of a hard job but pretty fun now that i look back on it: just remember to clean the window where you will be applying the black band VERY good otherwise the black will start to come up like it did on mine. thankfully the windows were still out of my car when i noticed it coming up. re-did it with some industrial strength window cleaner prep first and they are still fine three years later
  10. gonna bump this old topic because there arent any newer ones... but in the 4 years has anyone been able to fit any newer flip up displays in stevens (binnacle overhang) cars with success? I want a flip up unit that I can hook a Mac Mini up to, run parallels on it so it will load windows and then have freescan connected up to it as well....
  11. As some of you may know, I am a huge collector of anything and everything realted to the 90s Esprit SE since it is the car I personally own. I have what I believe to be the largest collection of SE related literature, brochures, dealer packets, press photos, postcards, posters etc... besides probably the factory itself. See Here for my entire collection. There are a few items I have seen in various places however, and I am looking to add them to the collection in order to get closer to my goal of having everything out there. I have pictured the items I do not have below in hopes that some other overly-obsessed collector like myself might be on these boards and have a spare of something to part with. A $10 finders reward will be paid to anyone who can help me locate anything from this list.

  12. Getting a set of custom built wheel adapters made up... the dude wants to know the following: "Does your Lotus have studs coming out at 12mm1.5? Im pretty sure, but can you please verify" Thanks, Jamie
  13. just wondering what the difference is between cars with the "esprit turbo se" badge right behind the doors midway up the car like this: and cars with the "esprit se" badge on the quarter windows like my car: is it just a european car versus american car thing or was it the transition from 1989 to 1990 or something? I do t believe ive ever seen it the first way on an american car but i did just get pictures from the toronto ontario canada car show from 1990 and it has a red esprit with the door "esprit turbo se" badge behind the door... were canadian cars made the same as the euro ones or something? thanks in advance! Jamie
