I just started to rebuild one of the 3 Esprit S1 LHD I have....

What have you done? That was orange the last time I saw it!!! You've succumbed to the old adage that all Esprits have to be white - shame on you, orange is a fantastic colour and really suits a 70s Esprit (particularly with the green/tartan interior).

 

By the way, it does look good :)

Now that is going to look so cool when its finished. I wish I had a garage to be able to do a rebuild. My wife thinks I'm barmy when I spend 6 hours washing and polishing! She'd never see me. I must explain that benefit to her when I next see her :)

Nick Fulcher figured out how to cut up my family tartan (Guthrie) in place of the traditional Hunting Menzies. Cutting up the subsequent pattern was the last Lotus project he worked on. I'm visiting Steve Fulcher on Wednesday to see how it's going and lift a glass in memory of dear old Nick.

I have a blog in the Restoration section.  I haven't worked on it much since last spring, but now I'm back on it.  I'll keep it more up to date if you're ( or anyone else is)  interested.  I'm also working on Moxie's car (above).  Plus, I have a second S1 project after these two.

I know how lonely it can be...5 years doing my 1985 Turbo. Out in the cold dark garage. Try to give your self small goals and enjoy them when they come.

For God's sake, when will someone take a beat-up S1 basket-case barn-find and respray it Lotus Viper Green to make up for the one and only S1 painted that color, but since painted white?
