I ordered a new Lotus, having cancelled the Porsche. That makes me happy

After 5 years of hard work and graft my Downton mini fired to life this morning and sounded absolutely amazing, everything has been rebuilt so big smiles. Just lots of loose ends to finish off no

Have to since my stroke. The car is way too fast for my eyes to register what is going on. I drive like a nanny now. :hrhr:

And the bolts are done. :happydance: Some are rather awkward to get to aren't they? Well, they are when you are schmoozing around on your back on the concrete.

So now it's a wheel alignment on Saturday, drives, paint guy to fix up some rather nasty stone chips, key guy to cut a spare as I don't have one (I am pretty sure it is a Silca Italy YM27P Plastic Head Key Blank. I found that info on www.espritfactfile.com as no one answered my query on here.) and then the market.

Sold the Fiat 500 to We Only Stitch you Up a Bit today for a ridiculously good price, I mean as much as I wanted privately. Only thing was forgot the spare key. No worries will bring that and the car back tomorrow. 

Well for 7 f&#king years that key has sat in the same pot, is it there now of course not. We have pulled the house apart still can’t find it! I use it to move the car about on the drive and used about a week ago. New cat is looking suspicious, I think he won’t look me in the eye.

No just the standard key as a spare but with transponder in it. £220 to you Sir. I am thinking transponder key without transponder! We have the main key

They are part of Mannheim - so it’s a reflection of their auction prices. Many cars get booted through the ring - others get straight retailed at one of their outlets.

I can sympathise. My first week offshore Dubai, it pissed down rain which I never expected. But at least the rain was warm.

Happy today !!

 Well in about 5 hours I will be heading South with the Volvo and trailer to finally collect the S1 from the paint shop. So if you see a strange looking vehicle on a trailer wrapped up like a cocoon in the next 48 hrs, give me a toot. It wont be a Lotus mule. It will be one very tired dude on his way back to gods country with a pristine Monaco White Lotus Esprit S1 which I understand may well be up for sale shortly. 1,136 miles in 24 hours. Here we go.

Fricking Nora - ain’t you got a paint shop closer ???

The guy specialises in glass fiber and turns out some fantastic work at sensible prices. He spent his apprenticeship on Corvets  and the last 20 years on them so knows how to treat the material. 400 photographs of a detailed restoration process. The guy had a few hickups along the way. Moved premises, went off ill, had a family bereavement which unfortunately all added to the original timescale. But he has assured me he has turned out a fantastic job.
