Esprit S2 Tools and Jack plus Owners Handbook


Recommended Posts

  • Gold FFM

Hi.

Having just picked up my S2 after its long resto, I only recently realised it is missing the jack and tools plus no owners handbook.

If anyone knows of any availability of any of above be great to get. Oh and the OEM hitachi digital one stereo as well, been looking a looong time for one of those.

Thanks

The S2 toolkit is the same as the S1 I think (could be wrong!). The S1 is like this... https://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/82472-s1-toolstoolkit/?tab=comments#comment-649262

People would kill for an original owner's manual so that will be difficult to get hold of.

Thanks Paul

I'll keep looking, I do have an S3 toolkit in a plastic tray/box not sure if was OEM though or just what someone had placed in the my old S3. Its in the JPS for now.

I'll just have to ride around with the S2 worksop manual! Little large for the glovebox tho 😬

Hi Simon, by the sounds of it your toolkit is a genuine one from the later S3s.

Have you picked it up yet? Looking forward to seeing it in pictures and the flesh.

The manuals can turn up on eBay, I got two. One (yellow) for the domestic market in tatty condition with a fold out dealer map of the UK and the other (pale blue) a near perfect Federal one. I found a sleeve for same too.

The tool roll is a canvas type thing with tie strings.

Did you get a steering wheel and boss Simon?

Hi Barrie, yes it is from the S3 though it was genuine.

Yep got car with me now, few teething problems re smooth running but taking it to Sir Sparky tomo to take a look.

Yes we'll arrange to meet up, maybe Ace when it reopens. I'll check when it is.

Hi George, I have been checking but nothing yet so hopefully will find one soon.

I know SJ have the canvas roll but not sure if I need that, def need wheel changing kit tho. Thanks for the reference.

Yes found the correct steering wheel sometime ago, from Australia. Had a boss that fitted it already.

Like all of us looking forward to seeing you complete your S2! How you getting on with it?

Great news on the wheel, I'm still looking for a boss but I'm sure one will turn up eventually. 

The Esprit project is in lockdown essentially, I don't want to start back on it until things get a little more settled. I'm hoping I'll be back on the project full time with no distractions by the end of summer. Thanks and enjoy the JPS!

When I needed a boss a couple of years ago I couldn't find one anywhere in the UK but managed to get one from the US in the end. I think it cost me £200 though!!
