  1. Hi there Yep it is me that has it for sale - sadly I'm not able to finish it for a number of reasons. I sincerely hope it goes to an Esprit enthusiast - I am going to leave it on here for a week before advertising elsewhere. Cheers
  2. You really wouldn't want to see it Chris
  3. I've bought a spare wet sump engine for my Esprit (just in case ). For some reason the previous owner fitted a rather grotesque oil filler cap... Does anyone know whether the Lotus Twin Cam (from the Elan, Cortina) three eared oil filler cap fits? - as Burton Power sell them.. - or is there another source? Thanks Simon
  4. Cheers Dave - nice to make this rather exclusive list Simon - just out of garage after a cold night of Esprit fettling
  5. Have to admit that I am rather fond of Lotus cars in black having owned 3 JPS Europas and a WC S2 Esprit in times gone by! - OOOO'ER
  6. Many thanks Barrie - that looks ace. I reckon that black really suits the calypso red - another winter's job on the list I will check the number plate history of my car.
  7. Oh that would be great!! 690W I have loads of history with the car, but no pictures - pics would be fantastic! A previous owner px'd it for the Sport 300 that was written off and rebuilt by Lotus in green! - spookily a friend in the same village bought the Sport 300 off him
  8. Oh Buddsy - you have got me thinking again now! - I was convinced to get mine back to the original black - but you know I've decided to source a pair of bumpers so I can have the best of both worlds as the mood takes me! By the way - is there a shade of black for the bumper? Another shot of the Esprit when collected 7 years ago! - how values have rocketed in the interim - £1500 was the princely sum paid for this lil' cracker - albeit with a rather dead engine!
  9. He has just rather rapidly turned down my best offer
  10. My that looks absolutely stunning!!!! - totally convinced! What colour red is that? - looks a little darker than the Calypso Red??
  11. Many thanks all for the wheel information and the kind offers to take them off my hands - I never realised their rarity!
  12. Are 4 studs good? - I didn't realise. The chap who sold it to me was rather pleased of his 'washer modification' - not so sure myself I think it will be going back to standard including the colour coded bumpers and window frames (which I don't mind :)) - I am a bit of an original spec man, but not obsessive
  13. Many thanks Barry for your kind offer, but it's not in my nature to foist my problems on others - I will labour on I just can't believe how Esprit values have risen in the interim 6 years....
