  1. I have one in black, and am located in Scottsdale, AZ $250.
  2. Ron Davis Radiator in Phoenix, AZ.
  3. Curved aluminum down tube at the front of the motor on the right side of the firewall. Look in front of the AC Compressor.
  4. Your belt tensioner is about to go.
  5. A second nuts is missing. You will need a belt tensioner gauge, 2 wrenches, be able to read Braille, and a large box of Bandaids. If you have had a recent Tetanus shot, that would also be a bonus.
  6. Hate to break it to you but that is Not an 86 S3 North American. The 86 NA has a Bosch K-Jetronic Fuel Injection System and yours does not.
  7. If you look at the non V8 Esprit, you will see that a diagonal frame pipe has only been welded in on the right front side of the frame cage. Anyone know if Lotus added a pipe an additional diagonal frame pipe to the left side when they did the V8 frame. Has anyone added the pipe after the fact? Am I safe in assuming the frame is Galvanized Chromoly?
  8. Tailights are all in, and molds for light enclosures will be in tomorrow. I'll post a picture of the car with the vette lights before they get chopped off and put on EBay. The rear hatch louvers I can live with, but I'm not happy with the design of the side scoops that replaced the ears. Anyone have any design thoughs on integrating the rear hatch louvre design into the side scoops?
  9. Forget the switching of the hatches, but the ears are going, and the mockup of teh 6 V8 taillights looks to cool to pass on. As for stealing from parts bins...its one thing to call Girling to ask what will work, and quite another to use a part that was exclusive exclusively and esthetically made for the taillights. If you remove the taillights from a S3 Turbo, and see what the factory did to make them fit, that to me is a butcher job.
  10. "butchery"???? The car has "ears" that look like a hillbilly after a bad haircut, hatch louvers that should require the driver to sport a mullet, and a square bodyside moulding that camoflagues a mid-waist seam in the way that yoga pants hide fat rolls. Thrust it on fire and collecting the insurance has enetered my mind on several occasions.
  11. Monkey Man = Is that a photoshop or did the hatch from an 88 actually fit? Anyone want to see it with the vette rear tailights that it now has, or do you want to wait and see it with the 3 V8 taillights per side that I'm putting in?
  12. I already got rid of the "ears", now I just want to get rid of the "Camaro rear window louvers". I can't believe that no one has ever tried the switch, or just laid it in place.
  13. The books aren't written yet, but I have a feeling he is being steered. Maybe thas why he has fallen behind on writing...
  14. I'm not speculating...Tyrion Lannister does become King...thats how it all ends. The spoiler is in the Universal Studios gift shop in LA. There is a statue of him wearing the crown, sitting on the throne of swords.
  15. The "mongrel" was the stock Esprit that came from the factory with virtually every part, short of the body, stolen from someone else's parts bin.
  16. Ultra Spoiler...Tyrion Lannister becomes king of the 7 kingdoms.
  17. Anyone ever try to fit an S4 hatch lid on an S3?
  18. I believe the guy's name is Slav, and the company is called S&S Auto Wreckers out of Seattle, Washington
  19. I believe there is one on EBay USA.
  20. If you find a company that will do the engine harness, let me know, I am trying to find one myself.
  21. What did you do to the engine and gearbox to get it so clean?
