If he has an original headlight bracket and that is mounted where it should be, why the height problem? I wonder if something else is out? I am pretty sure that he took the measurements for the rivnuts from the original aluminium front structure?

I hope he hasn't missed something somewhere? By missed, I mean some other damage that is not evident.

I reckon he'd be a great guy to sit down and have a chat with.

I wonder if he will keep this or move it on?

I wonder what he does for income?

> He has said on several of his videos that he buys these cars to keep them, not to sell them. 

 

I wonder what he does for income?

> He is an App Developer i.e. computer programmer.

That's my exact thoughts Barry. The clamshell definitely bolts to the end crash bar using that channel bracket he had bonded to his clamshell. His new front crash bar sits 1/2" too low but that's about it. I've tried sending the guy some pictures but never get a response. I do like watching these videos and he seems like a cool guy to hang out with!

New episode. He found his fault with the front clam! And its starting to take shape.

Not sure that spending an evening with a computer programmer who spends all his spare time in a dusty garage talking to himself on camera is my idea of a great night out. I enjoy his films though! :thumbup:

Had to drive lots of cars at the dealership with those in-mirror cameras. Hated them. Any light hitting the mirror made your view invisible.

After disassembling the front end of my car to replace the clutch master cylinder, it became apparent that Lotus just wants people to believe working on these cars is somehow more complex than any other vehicle. Or maybe that's just what most people familiar with Lotus want to believe based on the book hours for most jobs. 

I would have been thrilled if I could have removed a "rear clam" on my mk2 MR-2 when I had to repair/replace the crankshaft pulley and front seals. Having to stand inside a trunk and lean over a motor made for a really achy back. 

If/when it's clutch changing time I'm sure it won't be a simple job compared to your standard FR car, but I'll save a boatload on labor.

He definitely has a love affair with metal versus aluminium doesn't he?

He loses the automatic mirror function as well, but it's probably not a biggie.
