  1. Thanks Bibs, order for 2 placed.

    Esprit Registry

    Really glad it is going to be restored. Would not have liked to have had to type them all in again.
  4. I have got a pair of Jackpoint stands (, they are excellent for being able to lift and secure on an axle stand at the correct point. I was fortunate to be working alongside a P-car owner so was able to piggy-back onto a group-buy that they organised, but still think they were around the £280 mark.

    And that's it. All present... and possibly/mostly/maybe correct.

    I had the same message and inability to scroll and there was no vertical slider either. I just closed it, and re-opened it, and it was working again. I think I got the best page, page 34 or something. Tony K had just bought his 4th S1, so there was a whole page discussing it.

    Now complete to end of page 36... the end is in sight...
  8. I have no first-hand experience of it, but have you seen this stuff? Expensive at ~$1500 for the starter kit, and nearer $3000 for all the bells and whistles, but looks like it would make fault-finding a lot easier. And with your air-ride system, you can raise and lower the car from the key-fob...

    Right then better start my '77 S1 project...

    Here's the MX5 wiring diagram: I am in no way an electrician. Releasing the magic smoke is more my style, but would the green wire, going to the dashboard module light a warning lamp if the motor was overloaded?

    Elite air con parts

    Thanks John, I will certainly have them, but equally happy for anyone else to jump in first. Shall we give A N Other a week or 2 weeks to call dibs, before I arrange collection? Is it possible to get a weight and package size to give to the courier? //Angus

    If no-one else wants it, then I'll take them off your hands. However, as I haven't started disassembling the project, I don't even know if I would need them yet. Just seems such a waste for them to be dumped when it would only be a tenner for the postage.

    Driving in Europe. Evora Insurance.

    When I took my Elise with me when I was working in Europe I used these people: Can't say whether they are any good in the event of a claim, but were the cheapest I could find at the time. (2007)
  14. Yes, that's the one. It is an Exige, but I do fit a soft-top during the warmer months. When cleaning the throttle body, feel the bore on the TPS side. This is where mine wore, but it probably doesn't happen as badly on the DBW version as the return spring doesn't need to be as strong.
