The wheels look great, they are not too polished and have a kind of anodised look. Were they lacquered?

Where did you get them done? Very tempted to do mine.

Powder coated gold centres then diamond cut and lacquer. Painted the bolts my self.

had them done in a place called Paint It , based in Essex Andy.

So the turbo charger is totally rebuilt now and no more oil leaks. I replaced the CHRA and turbine wheel and shaft along with new gaskets and thrust bearings and journals ( is that how it's spelt) all st steel bolts and good to go. Door trim and MOT next.

I can see from the reflection in the rear quarter glass Wayne,  you have a proper old school garage with the coffee jars on the shelf full of nuts and bolts for all occasions , proper man cave :respect:

Barry has shelves and shelves covered with damaged, bent, worn out and useless Esprit parts for every conceivable model. He is waiting for the day in about thirty years time when they become "collectable" and then they will be on eBay like a shot...


I tempted fate...now my Esprit V8 IS in bits...(sob)
