Okay, I’m gonna say it. 

....dude, you're killing me, here. 

:D TORTURE!

This whole unit deal really f'd me in the A, the S2 body's been ready to come off for months. Here's the craic; soon it'll be the Esprit build on centre stage. Have to get the RR back in one piece and the Cortina done so that Rob has the summer in it but things are going to get very Lotus very quick and very soon. I've so much cool Lotus stuff coming [things that'll blow you away if they come off], I'll have to work hard to incorporate non Lotus stuff.

Anyway... you'll be glad of the metal brake when I use it to make my own alloy tanks. Just have to build a TIG welder first 🤐

I am now the most excited man in the whole of history.

The Cortina’s fine, probably just needs a wash.

And no one really cares about the Range Rover.

So... I’m ready when you are. Just gimme 5 minutes to put the kettle on.

Fair enough.  And I suspect you’re not the only one.  I just couldn’t think of anything pithy to say about the Range Rover.

Obviously, she’s a lovely 1970’s icon. And looks, to me, to be pretty much done. Just need to hang the doors, or not, and she’s good to go, right? 

(That’s probably what I should have said)

Hurry up, tea’s getting cold.

ha I think they're a lot of car for the money. You only have to drive one to appreciate how good they are, and they're of that age that they've some advancements while not being difficult to work on. Well wear man!

It's actually a '91, the mustard one is '70's, and you'll hate me when that comes along. I'll be going full obsessive on that... but Esprit first ;)

I flipping wish the Vogue was close, well it is, but I spent the last three days preparing a hand full of rusted out parts. There's a little ways to go but I'm trying to speed up the process [least on video] as much as I can now.

90’s?!  I’m Saying nothing. They made some... cars in the nineties.

...but lovely and nice white S2 Esprit first. 

Whisper it - Lotus, better.  Others cars, not Lotus.

There's a little bit of Esprit in here, just a little mind you, near the start too ;)

They say if you don't watch the whole thing, and like, and share, you'll have seven years bad luck. You can take that gypsy curse to the bank 🤠

Dude, don’t listen to that lot.  The Rangey is ace.  You take your time.  What do they know, right?  I’m loving the whole 90’s vibe.  Just a few panel gaps to go.

Esprits are passé, anyway.

l liked that X1-9.  Loads of unique features.

2. GTK [aye]

possibly? Don't they say the sure sign of madness is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result 😀😀

And it has to be a YES from me. I mean a conversation on a V8 and chickens at the same time. Well time he came home to roost.
