Does you know what the door mirrors fit and are they available? Mine are b-----dy useless,

Hi - they are Raydyot - one of my original pair was floppy so bought the same from eBay if I recall - about fifty quid for a pair in mat black (as per what was already on).

 

I know a couple of other local elites have the same mirrors but they are chromed...

 Nice, what wheels are they, they suit the car very well. ( Esprit is very tasty also)

Cheers!
 

ive been tinkering today and discovered that the dipstick in the Esprit appears to be two inches too short! Had a nervous  moment when I put a glug in and it still wasn’t registering... Lucky my dad had an idea and we used the far longer stick from the V12 E type and sure enough it bottomed out on the sump and read plenty.... I will post in the Esprit G section to ask if anyone has come across this before or of its just me having to relearn esprit stuff after a ten year break! 😬

They are.... I can’t claim credit for the good taste - I’m just benefiting from Charlie’s excellent choices... search for the build thread on here somewhere...

 

still can’t give the man enough credit.. I am very lucky!

Wedgey goodness! 😝

Nice and dry out this afternoon so gave the Elite a blast to get the oily bits moving  - started fine after working the choke and getting fuel flowing for the first time, after at least 6 weeks standing! 👍

Nice, but you need to get some TFR on the white bands, I used to do it every 2/3 weeks 😉

Ah! Mr Croker! Good to see you back on the forum...


Apologies for the lack of detailing I was just excited at getting the Panther out for a well deserved blast!

We have never met in person as far as I know, but rest assured I am a big fan of your work and will never stop publicly congratulating you on your creation!

Short of a recon steering rack and a new master brake cylinder it’s more or less as you left it, as far as I can tell and I am privileged to be benefiting from your vision.

 

I will  do my best to white the walls at the next opportunity...

respect always

jim 👍

Cheers - jim
