You don't want much Gordon!!! The phrase rocking horse s**t springs to mind. Do you also need a centre console ashtray to go with it?

The mould which Matt Watts had came from me and Matt sold it to Nick Fulcher. Nick was making mirrors but I don't know if Steve has taken that over. They require so much effort they're not worth the hassle but you could always give him a ring.

 

I did make another mould which I lent to Dave Noble but that was about 2 years ago but I don't know if he's done with it. If he has then ask him if you can borrow it off him and return it to me when you're done as I know somebody else who would like to borrow it.

If it's an early pod mirror, it was the same as the rear bumper.

Dave,

Any chance if returning my original mirror which I sent to you a few years ago to help you start this?

Not looked at this topic for a very long time as been so busy on other projects so covered up and forgot the S1....

The mirrors are as above only Steve (friend) no longer work with GRP so the project died, I will try and get the mould from him and continue this over the winter if possible, I still have Paul's mould as never used it.

Chris, PM me your details and I will return yours although if you give me time I will machine down a bracket and fit the glass making it complete.

I have the bits to complete six including the glass but only have two shells, if I can get the mould I will do another four then just some plain shells for anyone who is after one.


Do or do not, there is no try!

Hi Paul

That is still my plan pal once I get hold of the mould from my friend. I will let any others go through the forum as Gordon wants one and had a few other requests.

Unfortunately the mould got ditched when my friend left his job, it is still my intention to get another made but I have been really busy on other Lotus tasks and currently this one is further down the list as I won't need the mirror until later in the year. My bodyshell should now be getting painted in March which will be the fifth time it's been booked!

I am currently concentrating on getting my S2 roadworthy and building some tools for the 907 engine and DHLA carbs.

I currently have two complete mirrors to assemble, 6 glasses and brackets.

Also acquired these;

I do need to do some fibreglass work on my S1 radiator duct and a sill on my S2 so when the weather warms I will try and move this mini project along.

Sorry for the delays as I know lots of people want pairs like Gordon etc.

Dave :)

Steve Fulcher is making some of these as well so if anybody needs one you could always try him.

I've got one you can borrow to copy. Let me have your address and I'll post it to you. How strong are things printed on a 3D printer - I know nothing about it!

Hi, as a fresh S1 owner and the start of the restauration I would also like to purchase a pair.

Could you contact me when they are available?

 

Thanks in advance,
