    Anyone live in Coventry?

    There's a building supplies place on Bedlam Lane that offers secure parking when there's events on, not sure how much it costs but I suspect it's cheaper than the Ricoh. It's about 10 minutes walk from there. Or you can park on Bedlam Lane itself (or the other roads around there) for nothing if you don't need it to be secure.

    Caffeine and Machine

    My lad has been. His mate knows one of the owners. Definitely on the 'to do' list. Probably mid-week to start with, when it's a bit quieter. @Alex - your pictures look great.

    2019 Calendar - Photos required!

    Are people still having problems uploading photos? I've noticed that some have come in this week, so not everyone is struggling.

    Certificate of Provenance

    Earlier this year I contacted Lotus with regards to obtaining a Certificate of Provenance for my car. Having paid the required sum, and waiting the required amount of time, today I finally recieved it. I knew from anecdotal experience that there couldn't be too many S1s around in the same colour combo as mine, but now I have some evidence to back it up. It would seem that the number of Model Year 2000 111S Elises produced in Deep Purple metalic with black leather interior is: Two. That's mine & one other. It would be interesting to know where the other one is.

    2019 Calendar - Photos required!

    I did what Mark says, and then used 'drag 'n' drop' and nothing happened (no error, just did nothing). I then tried browsing to the file & it worked fine. (This is on the PC, not tried it from my phone).

    Another New Lotus

    Dave, that car looks fantastic - love it! Photos are great too. You need to get them uploaded into the calendar folder for consideration for the 2019 calendar: https://www.midlandslotus.co.uk/forum/gallery/category/613-2019-calendar-images-wanted/ <Shameless calendar plug over>
  8. Calling all the photographers out there: Yes, it's that time of year again. We are looking for your photos please for consideration for next year's calendar. There is a gallery folder for you to upload them too here: https://www.midlandslotus.co.uk/forum/gallery/category/613-2019-calendar-images-wanted/ The more the merrier, so please submit away. Final decisions on which ones will be included will be made early November, so don't delay.

    Lancaster photoshoot

    My younger son & I took a little trip out to the the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre in East Kirkby last Saturday for a photo shoot with the Lancaster bomber NX611 "Just Jane".

    Epoxy Garage Floor Paint

    I've got Duramat tiles in my shed. I really like them, but the only I'd say is that whilst they're good supporting a spread load, they're not so good with point-loading. I found that out when I first put the side-stand down on my bike & I could see the tile denting. I use a piece of wood now for the stand to spread the load.

    I'm more into retro bikes, but that Buell is gorgeous!

    You can put it on display in my conservatory if you like John - I'll look after it for you.

    I was thinking how clean they looked compared to mine!

    I did something similar with the screen on my bike. It's a bit scary the first time you use the 500 grit on the plastic, isn't it. My initial reaction as 'oh my God, what have I done!'

    Wow, just wow! Looking forward to seeing it back on the road John.
