  1. Hi Marc, have you tried talking to Polybush, they were very helpful when I was getting bushes for my Eclat racecar
  2. Yep, Think Automotive every time
  3. They look like BMW boxes, you would need a bell housing or adaptor to fit it to the engine and custom propshaft, the issue could be bolting up the propshaft to gearbox the Lotus Getrag 265 boxes propshaft slides onto the box rather than being bolted.
  4. Don't go there, I had a planning office tell me he didn't like loft conversions so he would never approve them😠
  5. Very easy to work on and a few small bits of rust, corners of the doors on the outside skin, inner looks very good, bottom front corner of near side rear wing, again inner part is still very good and the battery tray area has corroded so would leak into drivers footwell, I sealed it up so no water ingress when I cleaned it but you can buy a panel to replace it🙂. From searching there are only 8 GL models left on the road in the UK. I'm doing this up for my eldest daughter to learn to drive in.
  6. Just rescued this from going to the fire brigade to be practiced on. 1 owner from new only 36000 miles and just parked up in a garage from 2002. Just going to give it a clean and good service new tyres and it should hopefully go through an MOT.
  7. Has the tank been repainted at some time? Has the paint bonded it where it sits on the grp. From memory you have done all that is required to remove it. Is it possible that it has rusted to the sound deadening material that from memory is on it.put a spreader in the boot and try prying the tank upwards carefully
  8. No engine management light comes on and the lack of a cat has never been mentioned at the MOT centre that I use. The van is a 2005 Scudo Jtd
  9. I had the cat cut off my van back in 2013, this was the night before I had its MOT booked. Had to fit an aftermarket one in a hurry to get it MOTd and then removed it and fitted a straight through piece of pipe, it's gone through its MOT like this ever since passing it's emission test every time
  10. If Lotus are holding the deposits, will that mean you will have a contract with Lotus themselves rather than the dealer and therefore direct liability for any issues etc.
  11. Hi John, the show sounds great, but I have a feeling those dates won't work for us as I believe that is possibly still during school time, my wife works in a school and is only able to have time off during the school holidays. I won't write it off just yet as it is possible that she won't be working in a school next year. Your offer of secure storage to enable us to tour a lot easier is much appreciated. Thanks again Regards Dan
  12. Hi John, hope your trip to pick up the m100 went well. I could be interested in a trip to Scotland but would have to tow the race car as it's currently not road legal. It would also depend upon when the show is and my work commitments and if I could combine it with a bit of tourism whilst I'm there, my wife has always wanted to go to Scotland. Let me know when and where and I'll think about it. Regards Dan
