The garage was used to build a Ferrari V8 engined Elise/Exige/VX220 hybrid. So It's more than adiquit for me just tweaking around with mine .
Let the fun times begin.

It was a long and painful process with a deadline to be on a stand at the autosport show.
Fortunately the car got finished in time (the day before).
Below are the images from start to finish of the project.
You'll notice that when the clam is fitted and on its wheels it had a huge arch gap. Fortunately Alex lent me his Nitrons so I could adjust the height down. You'll also see the "A" frame I fitted midway through the project.
Overall I am over the moon with how the car looks

Hmm, so a week into V6 ownership and i've encountered my first problem! Had a bit of a search around the internet but not found much.
Just came back from a friend's house, car wouldn't start the first time weirdly, turned over a couple of times but didn't catch. Waited 30s and tried again, all was fine this time. After i got out of his village i started to realise it wasn't feeling quite right. As usual waited 5 minutes until it was up to temperature and accelerated, only to find it's noticably down on power. The rev lights start coming on at 4k, then the limiter cuts in hard at somewhere between 4.5/5k. I assume this is the behaviour when then engine's cold, but it was showing 84C as usual by this point. At the end of my 45minute journey, it's still feeling sluggish and won't go above 5k. There's no warning lights or messages, everything sounds normal. It's the same behaviour across all three DPM modes.
Any ideas? Fortunately it's still under warranty, but don't really want to be without it for who-knows long

Can you offer some advice please. Managed to find some time today to replace my exhaust flexi. While under there I noticed all 4 of the exhaust hangers are either broken or missing!
I've had a look around and could do with your thoughts.
If I buy the standard ones circa £5 each do I also need the metal straps which go over the top (as seen here)
Or am I better getting the updated silicone ones? These seem to come in red or black any idea on what's better?
The car has a decat and the exhaust bracket seems to be completely missing, I've done a search but can't find any. Does anyone know where I should be looking?
Finally, I need to replace the bolts as the remaining few are seriously corroded. Does anyone know the spec so I can get some stainless ones?
Final note, this is a road car with a decat and a janspeed backbox, I'm not planning on tracking it if that influences the above.
Thanks for your help

The OEM Bluespot Woodstock head unit in my Elise is playing up and I am thinking of replacing it.
I really like the record facility - I can set it to record the Classic Comedy hour on Radio4 Extra every day so I can have something to listen to on long journeys.
I want a DAB radio - with Bluetooth (for handsfree), recording facility and sd card slot. Not worried about CD player.
I can't find anything that ticks all the boxes
Anyone got any suggestions ????
