Hello from Sweden!

Recommended Posts

I thought I should introduce myself...

My name is Jonas and I live in southern Sweden with my Girlfriend and a cat!

I just bought a complete wreck that I am in the process of rebuilding, Lotus Esprit S1, I am no purist so some of you will probably grind your teeth at my complete crasynesses ( is that a word?)

BUT I WILL make it to the end and I WILL have a wonderful time doing it, and in the end I will have a wonderful drivingmachine .

First off is the rotten bulkhead, but I will start a rebuild thread and ask questions there.

Hi Jonas and welcome!

Seems indeed that you have embarked yourself in an adventure. But as I read, you don’t lack any motivation. Success!

Sweden has the given the UK some wonderful exports, I am sorry we gave you back that Esprit. It don't look pretty but we can blame a Swed for that I assume. 

I hope you will consider restoring it back to original but whatever you decide, I wish you the best of luck. That ain't no weekend with a few Ikea flat-packs.


PS. The S1 is principally about the purity of the shape, so I am certain you should bring this car back to how it left Hethel.

Hi welcome to the forum!

Looks to be in a poor old state at the moment so Im sure you will be able to make it something better.

Good luck with the project.
