Thought it might be! 

How did you get on at Stitch Perfect?

 

I've left my seats with Joseph at stitch perfect

He is going to recover them in leather also recovering the cabin fire wall panel and pocket along with the choke and door card inlays

From what I could see when I dropped them off he does some really nice work . I was lucky that he had a cancellation slot .He said he normally is booked up for months in advanced

Cant wait to see them all re covered

If chassis blasting is yet to be done I'll offer 2 suggestions: have it blasted using something other than sand, walnut shell/garnet mixture does a fine job; know that it will take some doing to extract residual media from closed sections like the forward box/turrets. I clodged a length of heater hose onto the shop-vac in order to be able to snake into the further reaches. There will be quite the measure of material left there and it must be removed so as not to form a corrosion trap.

Agree that powder coat is not to be preferred. Well applied paint is better for this application. I'll attach a photo of the chassis, post blasting.

One of these eBay scammers had 650 active buy it now auctions for various cars and motorcycles the other day. There's no way eBay can keep on top of it.

Lotus Esprit [meaning] a 1:1 scale Airfix kit with a propensity to catch fire

Any update Neil, how are you getting on with the build?

Haven’t looked back on this thread for a long time.

Car is all restored and fitted with a 912 engine instead of the k series .

I'm restoring a S1 now
