I mis quoted Phil’s car as previously LHD where it should have read previously a ROW car in red restored by Mark at Stocks into Copper.225690F6-FBD4-4C56-878B-CCC494D5CDAB.jpeg.995ef2163f5d839caea78e8a2dd41b67.jpeg

Apologies to Phil

Hi everyone. I have been doing a full restoration on a Yellow dry sump chassis number 11196 for the owner who has had the car since 1998

This probably warrants it's own thread in the restoration section if you'd be happy to do that? 

:)

Met Tim Shaw (of Car SOS fame) today at The British Motor Show. He said he owns a white dry sump Esprit and showed me a photo of it.

He showed it off on Car SOS - the S1 Esprit episode. It broke down while Fuzz was driving!🤦🏻‍♂️

When Tim was restoring the car one of his reaserchers contacted me wanting to buy my compomotive wheels. In true Sos style he didn’t want to pay what I wanted for them so he diamond cut his bbs. 

It looks like he has done exactly the same as I did, with the BBS wheels which was satin-black them and then have the webbed faces milled flat then the whole wheel diamond cut.

I did mine myself years ago, it’s not hard work just time consuming Bauke, I used a sanding disc to cut down the spokes then progressed with wet and dry through the grades finishing with 1500 grit.

I sprayed the wheels black then giving them just a final cut to expose the polished looked. The rims are the same process only doing by hand with wet and dry followed by autosol.
