  1. The last time I saw him was at the Hilltop LDC breakfast meet Jody, back in August ...
  2. A belated Happy New Year to everyone I know on MLOC - and also to those I don't.... As some of you will know I have a Mustard Yellow metallic Elise S1, which I bought in September last year. I've been working my way around it and will soon be at the point where it goes off for paint. It's only the front clam - the second owner had a very minor scrape in his works car park, and it had some localised paint blown in over the front wheel arch many years ago. Problem is, the paint match is not great - so it ideally needs the whole clam doing and probably just blending into the doors. So far I've taken it to Frank at Option 1, who is of course one of the very best in the business apparently, and he's quoted me £950 + VAT for the above, with the blending into the doors. The advantage of going to Frank is that (a) I know I'll get a great job done, and (b) he can get the screen replaced at the same time (insurance job) as it has very large chips on the passenger side. I may well end up going down that route, but given that the car is a high miler and I'm still having thoughts about getting it on track, I'd like to try and keep my costs down with the paint. Does anyone know any other places within say 150 miles of Leicester/Coventry that have extensive experience working with fibreglass, and have done plenty of Elises before?
  3. Mine is here, some great photos. Thanks for picking one of ours Guy / Phil. We nearly got chucked out of the Silverstone Classic for sneaking up there to take that photo (Feb), my brother was screaming in my ear saying, “you can NOT drive up there. No ******* way, don't do it”, etc........ I ignored him, not for the first time in my life 😂
  4. The previous owner of my mustard S1 did a full suspension refurb and fitted Superpro bushes. I know there are other factors in play, dampers, springs, tyres, pressures, but having had 4 previous S1's on OEM bushes, I can’t really tell any difference. They certainly aren’t harsh in my experience. Hope this helps..

  6. I have an old CTEK, which has been fine, but followed the recommendations on SELOC for and bought one of these a year ago for the S160. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Maypole-7423A-Battery-Charger-Electronic/dp/B009A83P1E Way cheaper and absolutely brilliant. Will Blackham swears by them and has used them for years. Don’t waste your money on CTEK.
  7. Credit - Cakes Work - someone else 😂
  8. Finally some decent weather so I've added a few of the yellow beastie, I've even 'mustard' up a couple in portrait format - get it? I'll get my coat 🙃
