    Advice on Elise Sport 190 dampers

    Hi Will, Yeah as above I would contact Bilstein at Leicester. I have the same units on my 190. Is yours the grey one with the red interior I saw on Instagram at stone's?

    Yeah Steve has a point John, What is it your looking for. The original MS seats out of the 340/s1 exige /190 or the later probax then s3 harness hole? If its the originals then you my be waiting along time. I did and gave up. One came up In the Netherlands not. Long ago on FB.

    It's a huge waiting game John. I was on the hunt for months and months. Finally a set came up on Facebook in October ber and sold in minutes. I was then browsing again just before Christmas and another set came up fairly local, lucky for me I was first and picked them up the day after.

    Well it looks like after a year away from cars, DIY and building work at home, and of course a new addition to the family it looks like Friday I'll be back behind a lotus wheel. Train tickets booked, just hope it's not a return.

    I really must get back to getting this car sorted. I finally managed to get the interior done at last. The seat frames took some real modifications to clear the gear surround and I also some of the new lotus anti Rock spring steel shims (which work). I had to strip the runner down, clean and re grease to get a nice movement but I was still 2mm to far over to the passenger side. Instead of slackening the bolts holding the gear leaver mech and seeing what we had to play with I took one of the seatbelt spacers out and machined a new one 2mm shorter , still retaining the 45 degree internal chamfer that the shoulder bolt locks against. Hey presto job done. Spitfires, pro alloy bits, sports cat and a full service next. Oh the joy.
  12. I wear puma driving shoes... Really casual looking just with a rounder edge on the heel. The only reason I bought them was for the caterham which is around half the footwell space of an elise / exige...

    The LDC Hilltop farm meet might be of interest????

    Cheers Dean, Postie delivered the missing seat bolts this morning so should have it buttoned up later. No corrosion at all. I've had everything out and it's like new which I was chuffed about. Sent from my G8141 using Tapatalk

    Stunning. I drove one of my customers Vantage Nürburgring edition a few years ago and absoloutly fell in love with it . The only thing I remember was it seemed to use allot of battery if not left on battery conditioner for period's of time, oh and the Mondeo Key .

    Haha, its far from your standards but cleaner than most. it would be nice to get these bolts , Junks is on it for me now. Although I do appear to have lost £700 to eliseparts.

    Small progress update ... The Interior has been out, harness bar and bulkhead panel. The side carpets were coming away in places so the old tape was removed , glue cleaned an replaced with new. I also replaced the speakers with new pioneer units whilst the harness bar was out. Of course they sit 8mm taller than the old units so are no pressed tightly against the harness's and the bar. My hand this morning looks like ive had a fight with a feral cat, Harnesses have been washed and boy were they grim.... It's now almost all back in, seats are ready to go in on freshly powder coated rails once lotus send me the right toyota spec bolts and spacers, they sent K ones first even though I asked for the toyota part numbers. Here's a quick test fit of the passenger seat running the msar harness bolt on the single shear side. For some reason the seats look grey in the photo. I've put the original 190 seats and runners in the loft in case I ever want to go back and sell the probax set. All in all happy so far , the painted centre works really well and looks oem which is what I was looking for , without buying a brand new unscratched unit from lotus. The fabric probax also feel allot comfier than my old leather set in the exige, might just be me though , although having an air pump in the drivers is a huge plus point on the comfort front.

    Cheers Jonny, he didn't want to get out of it which is unusual as at the moment getting him to stop for more than 5 seconds is hard enough.

    De cat or Not

    I'm just about to throw a elise parts silenced decat on my vhpd … They will smell more for obvious reasons but a silenced version hopefully will reduce the noise impact.
