  1. How you getting on, did your friend get you back on the road? The Undertray came up lovely ps they only ever put one heat shield over the left toe link to protect from the exhaust heat. Not needed on the other side. pps The asymmetry annoyed me so I fitted one to the other side too. But had to drill and tap the holes, looks like you're already good to go.
  2. Hi How you getting on resolving your engine problems? MrWill
  3. It doesn't sound good. 😣 If it was me, faced with that, I'd be getting it recovered to a good lotus garage where they can better diagnose the problem otherwise you may be chasing your tail trying stuff in hope and spending money doing so. A garage can compression test / electical fault find, quickly replace parts to test with one off the shelf etc etc. I hope I'm wrong and next thing you fit resolves it. Good luck MrWill
  4. Sorry to read about your engine woes - what a pain in proverbial ! If you watch a car programme like wheeler dealers they find a fault code got straight the item replace it and sell the car for a profit. When you read the forums it's seldom that straight forward. Alternator as Lithopsian says Poor / corroded / faulty wiring or connectors is the common recommendation made as a 'first thing to do' cam position sensor is mentioned on a few forum posts as a common underlying culprit behind some cars presenting similar symptoms to yours. Good luck, let us know how you get on. MrWill
  5. Another garage option for the discerning k-series or honda powered Lotus owner. Just been to see these guys for a rolling road tune after some engine fettling. Nice and friendly bunch, honest as the day is long and know what they're doing. They are mx-5 specialists but used to support the elise race series, and were the first to build a Honda elise I believe. Good for: Servicing / Geo / rolling road tuning or power runs. Rolling road isn't strictly true as its two independent boxes they bolt your hubs to and so they measure 'at the hub'. Anyway they get my recommendation and good to know they are around as another option for k-series and Honda boys n' girls if your usual MLOC sponsor can't fit you in. MrWill
  6. Nice work. For me working on the car is half the fun. I expect your having a ball. Keep up the good work. 👍 Ps met your half brother "Swiss" the other day. Sorry. V. Poor. 😬
  7. Goes straight on the cool wall IMO. Welcome on board
  8. No worries Kevin. The smart money is on the battery based on what we know. The elise is really sensitive to a drop in charge. Give us an update if you're up and running later today. 👍 Best wishes MrWill
  9. Morning Kevin Literally a bad start to the day. 3 things are most likely Faulty solenoid /starter motor Failed battery - despite being on charge Loose wiring between these two It could still be your battery depending on how old / how it's been treated (left to run down and recharged for eg) over a few years edit: try a standard jump start from your family run around to the Elise. If that works its your battery. If you're near the Trafford Centre in Manchester I have a spare battery for you to try. If the battery is newish a failed solenoid on the starter motor is mostlikely. But the first thing to check is wiring and connections as that's free! Good luck Eurocar parts may be open on a Sunday. Where are you based? MrWill
  10. I'm the same. Like the oem look and I like these. It's so easy to swap them out I intend on swapping between looks depending on how Im feeling... OMG I can't believe I just said those words. It's like I've become possessed by my girlfriend. I need to go and do something manly right now... But I'll post up some pics later for you when I've finished hammering / drilling / welding / swearing / picking my nose / farting MrWill
  11. Hi Neil I fitted a set to my Elise last month Something a bit different looks wise. They are as well made as any other led units. They are all a bit plastic but they light up nice and bright. I'm having a bit of difficulty with mine but its more to do with my car than necessarily the lights themselves. I've had the same issue with eliseparts items. - dashboard fog tell tale and button light are permanently on. 😒 To add to the confusion in resolving that issue I need to establish if they sent me the wrong type i.e. Federal rather than Europe. I haven't established that yet. In the meantime PJS had the car and rewired it to make it UK compliant. The only thing I don't like is that indicator clicks from the relay carry on for a second or two after the indicator stalk has returned to neutral. But soon goes unnoticed after a while The invoice for import tax duty turning up a month after the lights was a bit of a bugger too. Don't forget to add that to the cost 😉 Cheers MrWill
