Last corner of Lola fitted, you may think I've been slacking but this corner had been left off purposely for easy access to the engine bay and underneath through the wheelarch.  You may notice a

How about a bit of rear end...

The plasterers have run out of plaster, I've run out of money, so stuff the bungalow. I thought I might sell it and buy an Evora, but with 20,000 bungalows about to become vacant I doubt it would

I've never seen a man's part that looks like a small electrical screwdriver either?

It's a PZ3, it just looks small in relation to its surroundings :P.

In fact, it's that long snake-like object just to the right.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Just one question, I was thinking of removing the rear spoiler to give me a bit more clearance, has anyone done this, or am I going to end up drilling out yet more sheared off bolts?

Never had a problem getting those wings off.  Yes, definitely remove it!

Good luck with the spolier Steve,  Hope it turns out to be a walk in the park,  also good luck with the engine and trans removal,  What is the actual plan once the lumps out ?  i.e what did you plan to replace, belts ,turbos etc,  I know after reading the Barrykearly thread it will proberly be a lot more stuff than you first intended,  but what was the reason for the pull,  just general maintiance etc ?

I removed the exhaust then split the gearbox from the engine and dropped the gearbox out from the bottom at the back of the car - plenty of room. Then craned the engine out separately. I also had to replace the ims bearings too, I think the belts were over tightened in the past and the rear bearing failed completely - I was extremely lucky to catch it in time!

Good luck with the project, I did most of the work on my own too, at least you'll know it's all done correctly.
