One smiling owner whom has brakes which work

Off the ramps and road tested. brakes were that bad when it arrived that i simply didn’t feel safe taking it on a test drive. Now I have to report it’s great.  The lacking brembos is noticab

I don't think it is undeserved at all from my perspective. It was obsolete when it was installed on the Esprit. You cannot get parts for it - apart from the accumulator. When they actually need repair

It’s not the way I would have done it - but it’s the way he wanted to do it.

i was a bit surprised the top bit was missing 😂

Not even 30 minutes with tea and biscuits - nice little cars to work on 👍

So far over 250 miles racked up - what a pleasure they have been as well. By the end of today it’ll be closer to 320.

now just gets me thinking - what next? 

Gotta be a full suspension rebuild👍

@Clarky5150 it’s behaving exactly as it should in the service notes. Why Lotus fitted a gauge which goes all the way to 7 and a red which starts at 1. I will never know

Yeah, that'll make sense.  An earlier DM V8 should be the same as your S4s.

V8s had KH from the very beginning Gary. Praise the Lotus Engineering gods!

It works fine by the way. Thankfully...

Well thank you for the kind offer Barry. Is that the one you put on eBay with a starting bid of £16,786.54?

I'm ok though cheers. Got me a spare KH for £14 a while back...

Which reminds me, I must finish off looking for cross refs for servos for V8s - which you kindly helped me with ('96/'97 tricky. '98 on possible...) plus @Chillidoggy and I had a few exchanges on them as a Delco replacement option. Will look back and get on it again.

Following the successful trials here and at our sister branches Margate Exotics and Watford Exotics of the DM deletions I’m pleased to announce things are moving forward on a very positive note.

The initial batch of kits are rapidly being allocated to customers and I’ve also got a set ready for the S4.

We at Farmyard Exotics now have confirmed bookings for two customer cars - one arriving next weekend and one shortly after.

if any of you chaps out there are fence sitting - I’d jump off it quick 👍

pictures will follow once cars arrive.
