Hi Alex,

Great to get some good news within this update.   Excellent news on the inclusion of the top bleed for the pre-rads.

I`ll be send you the sets of OEM compressor ducts with the names of those covered by those.

Hi @ProAlloy-Alex,

This is really great news, thank you for the update. I'm OK with the deposit amount mentioned and really happy to have an approximate due date to work towards. I'll mirror the information in an email since I don't think all of those on the list are members here.

cheers

I think it would be helpful if everyone who has their name down for a kit could reply to Alex here regarding the deposit request and their arrangements for OE boost pipes,  are you assigned a set from Mike, sending your own pipes or looking to modify them yourself (is that wise :question: ) please. 🙂

Maybe something like:

Chris Weeden - I'm fine with a deposit in the 30% - 40% range and I have a set of pipes I'll be posting to Alex when he's ready to receive them. 

cheers

Mike Sekinger: 30% deposit.  OEM Compessor ducts will be shipped separately from the 6 additional sets already on the way.  Details of those Group Buy members covered is enclosed within package.

Filip Van Vracem: I'm fine with a deposit in the 30% - 40% range and I have a set of OEM Compessor ducts shipped via Mike Sekinger.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

At this point we would ideally now begin to collect deposits from each member. In the past this is usually around the 30-40% mark for the final bill created per kit....... Once sorted, i will then be able to send over the proforma invoices for amount payable. 

Alex will be sending out a proforma invoice for the deposit once he`s gathered the feedback.   So far it seems that 30% is acceptable to all.

Good Afternoon everyone!

Firstly start off by saying thank you to everyone for your patience. it honestly is appreciated at the moment. i am sorry for my delay however, unfortunately I was 2 days back in work coming back after Christmas and then subsequently had to isolate and hospitalised due to catching Covid! Very frustrating.. After returning it seems a few members here are isolating as well. We are currently running at around 60% workforce, so again I am truly sorry for the delay. so we are slightly on the back foot so far but we will catch-up!

My next task is to begin sending proforma invoices for the deposits to all relevant members. Once paid we will then begin the phase of cutting the original supplied OEM charge pipework to confirmed customers. Currently on the Fabricators bench, he is building the underside water pipework required to run the coolant from the front mounted Pre-Rad to the rear reservoir for the Charge Coolers.

We are still all very much aware and on the case here moving this project forward with all drawings now completed, including development processes to ensure the kit is user friendly ( we initially only built the kit as a complete one-off custom kit ) which meant due to building a batch, the entire cooling package required reverse engineering to ensure the correct fitment to all Esprits correctly and that any parts that were 'hand formed' were now made in a way that is repeatable to ensure each kit is identical. Again this is now all completed and all parts are being laser cut to the same measurements.

 

Thank you everyone.

Alex

Nope...

@ProAlloy-Alex Any updates? How do we send the details for the pro-forma?

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Hi all,

im a lotus esprit v8 owner in the USA.  I’m willing to purchase and figure out how to make the system fit.  Can I get in on the 10 unit deal at this late date?

Hi Steve (??),

Pro Alloy are making and selling the kit, Alex pops in and out of the forum infrequently but is the right person to answer this for you. If you send a personal message via the forum to @ProAlloy-Alexyou may get a quicker response.

cheers

@ProAlloy-Alex  It had been practically a whole month since your last update.

Please can you provide an update for all of those people who are waiting for news....

I’m afraid I’m going to drop out of the group buy.  It’s been over a year and with sporadic   updates and lack of information I don’t have much confidence in sending over deposits etc.  Maybe once everything is completed and proven I may just buy direct if and when they are available 
 

sorry if this affects peoples purchase price with numbers etc

Sorry to hear that Sacha, although I am not at all surprised.

It is quite ridiculous the way that this Group Buy "hobby project" has been limping along...
