  1. Hi Lisa, difficult one this because the cost of a paint job is a 'how long is a piece of string' type question. You can look around and get a cheap job that might be perfectly ok or might only last a few months before problems begin to reappear. A 'guaranteed' job from someone who really knows what they are doing (painting fibreglass is not the same as painting metal) will almost certainly not be cheap. Depending on the amount of work needed, think in terms of thousands rather than hundreds As previously mentioned, S1 cars needing a bit of work (and priced accordingly) will always find a willing buyer - you can advertise on here for free and to reach a wider audience you can join SELOC and advertise on there for free too. In your position (and if I decided to sell) I would try this approach first, if your price is reasonable (no need to give it away!) you could have a hassle free sale in a couple of weeks. However, what you should really do is keep it and come on some runs/events, the paintwork doesn't matter Good luck
  2. Welcome to both of you lucky new owners - two fantastic cars Do you fancy a run out?......... https://www.midlandslotus.co.uk/forum/topic/67636-peaks-run-sunday-15th-start-730-am/
  3. Good stuff Charlie, it's clear that you really love that car Sadly, I can't even take the [Censored] about you running out of fuel .... Good weekend that was

    Need Your Help

    No, don't think this until you've driven all types on offer! Some people (not me) really don't like the 111R at all - it's not a particularly torquey engine, it's a real screamer but doesn't come properly 'alive' until you hit 6200rpm (or 5700rpm with lowering chip fitted) and then it really goes If you like drama and playing with the gearbox it's a great car, if you prefer a more relaxing experience then it's probably not for you and a 111S might be better

    Need Your Help

    Dean is right, your link is to a 134bhp 1.8 Toyota engine car - don't confuse this with the earlier 1.8 Rover engine cars or the 189/190bhp 1.8 Toyota engine cars! The 'S' as mentioned above is no firecracker but it is a very nice car for normal road use. Reasonably torquey, totally reliable 1.8 engine (no cambelt) and 5-speed box, facelift interior with a better dashboard layout and overall a much improved build quality. In this price range you could also look for .... An earlier 111S (Rover) for less weight and more character. or a 111R (Toyota) for a screaming engine and 6 speed box. (I doubt you could find a supercharged car for £20K) I much prefer the 111R but others will strongly disagree
  6. Pm sent, although you already have my number from your test ride!
  7. Can't help on how to get into the boot (I bet there's a trick!) but if you can't sort it quickly I can lend you a spare roof for a while - I'm near the village of Eyam. Hope you get it sorted
  8. I think you like that car don't you Charlie?
  9. The 250 Cup is very similar to the 220, I doubt you would notice much difference unless you got them both onto a track and were moving at sufficient speed to get the aero working on the Cup. However, love it or hate it the body kit on the Cup makes it look very different.

    Last chance

    Be an epic result if you make it

    Last chance

    Can't help I'm afraid I assume you've tried Oakmere to see if they can sell/lend you anything? Is some epic bodgery not a possibility? Good Luck!
  12. You beat me to it Dean, I was going to say something similar but.... Kurt - haha absolutely no chance However, I notice you are booked onto Ashbourne Brisk so if you like I could ask the other group leaders if seven of us can gather round you so that you can drool at the lovely collection of LitP shirts on view - would that help at all? Jon - as Dean says, I know for certain that there weren't any shirts available last year, not a single one. I've had 10 shirts done this year (albeit without the embroidery on the arms) but they've all gone immediately to new leaders - apart from just one! I'm not sure yet if the 'spare' will be a medium or a large.
  13. Offer it to WillB and Jono Seal - they will both probably bid about £2K below a private sale asking price. It's a very good indicator Prices are all over the place at the moment but as a total guess I would say around £16-17K? (I'm no expert!)
  14. Hope you improve soon Keith Anyone else who is reading this thread and thinking 'maybe I could lead a group?' please let me know! We still have time to get you up to speed on either of the routes, the most helpful would be someone who's booked on Ashbourne medium but tbh we could work with anything! Less than 2 weeks to go
  15. Get yourself to a dealers and pick up an Exige V6 Auto - job's a carrot Thanks for the offer, if you think you will be ok for the day itself but you need time in between to recover I could show you round the route in an ordinary car, you could stick your gammy leg out of the window or something!
