The Presentation

Recommended Posts

Here's a pdf copy of the presentation book that was given to Bigsi showing some pictures of work in progress, before & after shots and the fun that was had. There is also a complete list of all the work that was done to the car on the last few pages.

The Presentation

I'm afraid converting it to a pdf does degrade the quality of the images a little but it's a huge file otherwise!

Great work Laura :)

There's been quite a bit of interest in the project from the folks at work. Now I can show them what all the fuss was about.

Great work, Laura. It really gives one an impression of the level of the effort that went into this project and the sheer scale of what the boys did. Even though I have followed the work in this section since it started, I was surprised by just how much you folks did and in such a short time. It's very much like a TV makeover but done properly.

Great stuff by all concerned.

Press Release

Project BigSi - www.lotusespritforum.com

19th June 2007

Author: Bibs

Project Bigsi

Being a virtual club doesn't mean that virtually nothing ever gets done! Internet based car clubs and forums are seeing a huge surge in interest and we at LEF want to show how that being based in cyberspace doesn't detract from what is possible when you get a lot of likeminded individuals together. In less than 3 years www.lotusespritforum.com (or LEF to the members) has gone from strength to strength now boasting over 3,200 members from all corners of the globe. Anyone who owns an Esprit, wants an Esprit or just plain loves the Esprit has been welcomed into the fold.

Taking this to a new level, in the middle of 2006 a member signed up wanting a new car. He found one and did a straight swap with his concours Fairlady for a S3 Esprit Turbo which once home was found lacking in pretty much all areas despite a thorough inspection pre-purchase. Fortunately, Simon Pritchard, or BigSi as we know him was a dab hand at car restoration and set about the long task of getting his new car to the condition he would like to see it in which would involve many hours of work over many months, or perhaps years, considering the problems with the car.

Unfortunately this was not to be. BigSi's health conspired against him and he developed Reiters Syndrome on top of his existing lung condition which in turn lead to a mini-stroke, or TIA on New Years Eve, the first of five in succession. Despite this, BigSi still insisted on working on the car but when I found out that he had passed out in the drive while attempting to remove the rear callipers one day I decided that enough was enough and it was time that his new friends at LEF stepped in to help, before he did himself some serious damage.

The plan was afoot, a secret area on our web-based forum was set up that all members bar BigSi could see, read and add to. He didn't even know it existed so was completely in the dark about our plans. Our initial appeal for donations towards parts was overwhelming with hundreds of people who had never met BigSi, many of whom are abroad and are unlikely to, sending us what they could spare. Our chief mechanic for the project, Troy Halliday was now refusing payment for his time as long as the smurf jokes stopped (he's 5' 5"
