Glovebox inner - a conundrum for that Swindon bloke?

I don't think that is an Esprit part Sparky. None of the parts manuals for any model show anything like that. Perhaps it is off an Excel or something? In what format is the part number, a stuck on factory label, written on in crayon or on a tag or something else?

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

Won't be the last time your seen in a darkened after hours car park with something in your hand

I’m gonna get fried knackers. The smell was dreadful and I managed to get red paint on the oven racks. She had to clean the oven out afterwards.

Sod off, you saw how well the last one went.  Looks like a Scotsman will win.

It may be an Excel, I will check in daylight the two  have here, the S3 one was fiber based, but I am sure some of the later ones were plastic with that bar across the top, I seem to remember my last S3 had the plastic insert and the fuse box was flush mounted onto it.

That's it, but I'm certain it doesn't fit that car!  The part number is an official Lotus sticker.

Wasn't too sure if I should ask, taking into regard his last comment about strange things in his hand in dark car parks. You get my drift. Mind you, he may have been speaking about or to Barry.

I tried every position I could imagine, but I still failed to insert it.  Then, when I got my breath back, I tried again.  With lube.  It's simply the wrong shape.

Bump - any more thoughts?  Can anyone post photos of their early and later Stevens gloveboxes?  And maybe even a late G?  This is doing my nut.

As of this morning I have conclusive proof it doesn't fit a GT3.  And if memory serves, it won't go into an '89 Turbo.

My stevens 88 has the fold up cardboard job,   The advantage of which is you can install it after the dash is in .

Gutted, as I forgot to bring this to MBW, where we might have been able to get an answer.  The quest continues...

One final bump for this SOB before I take it outside and set fire to it. Recap:  A082V7835K, Glove Box, Inner, says the original Lotus parts sticker.  Allegedly for 1988-1992 Esprit.  Is it bollox!  No way is that sticker correct.  The finest minds (some say) in TLFdom have failed miserably to identify it, despite the signature rectangular apertures that seem to bear no resemblance to anything in any Esprit.  So, last call.  WTF does this fit?  It was in Lotus inventory, so it must fit a Lotus, surely..?  Next up, the search for Bigfoot...

See, here's the problem.  I've checked every model I can think of, and nothing matches!

@Bibs, have you performed the mother of all wind-ups?
