  1. Oh nice. I have never been in, nor driven an Evora. Congrats. Let me get 'life' out of the way and come out to play - 2020 ☺️
  2. Wow, there is life after the plastic cars it seems! The Vantage has great rumble to it (although not as fast at the Honda Elise you had πŸ˜› ). The Stratos is born! I am sure you have a blog somewhere about it. Send me the link. Thats going to be a keeper I am sure with the Alpha engine in the bay. Congrats! πŸ‘πŸΎ
  3. Hey Phil! Good to hear from you. You went big power Subaru route I seem to remember. I hope all is well. With regards to the event this year, I am not going to make it. I am still sorting a few things out, but perhaps next year. It would be good to see you again.
  4. Hey all. Good to hear from you guys. All good. Being focused on family and health stuff for a while, so not really been doing 'car stuff'. But all good all things considering.
  5. Just realised, it's been 10 years, to the month, since the original conversion. Apart from normal bits that required replacing, it hasn't done too badly indeed.
  6. All, It has been some time since I last updated the blog. All these years on, the little Lotus is still going strong. She is now 20 years old and looks and drives as good as ever. The love for this iconic car remains. My days of mods and getting under the car every weekend are over I think. I now simply enjoy the ownership experience and driving! Oh, I also do a little bit of polishing - just a little. This car is simply pure magic and medicine to all gloominess. 😁
  7. Stop painting and keep building man!
  8. Does that bring the steer wheel closer to the driver?
  9. And we are off!! Nice one Leigh. Yup, photos, photos, photos (it's a man thing) This should be another epic build blog.
  10. Seen the engine. It a hefty ol' lump. I agree with Gav, majority of the bits that you seem to want to retain, you are not going to retain - i.e. you are going to replace with new

  16. Great. Thank you for the confirmation.
  17. This is going to be a classic thread! Good luck Leigh.
  18. One of the more popular mods over the years has been replacing the original door pins with the slightly thicker pins from either Eliseshop or Eliseparts. Now, before I replaced mine, I didn't quite realise just how much my doors rattled during normal driving or even worse, when you hit a pothole or something. This mod is straight forward and took me about 10mins to complete, however I have read elsewhere with some folks taking them as long as an hour to line up the doors. Note: One thing that I did is ensure that I took note of the tidemarks around the existing door pins, with a view to use these to align the new ones. This worked like a charm. Apart from some really minor adjustments, the door worked pretty much straight away. Results: The transformation is amazing. My car is generally rattle free, but by just adding this simple mod, all the sudden it has transformed it into a large german saloon I am very pleased.

  20. For some time now, I have been keen to do two things. Firstly, add a bit of symmetry by adding another revers light, and secondly move the fog light to the where the original reflector light is. What held up things was the fact that I needed a round LED light that would fit the original reflector recess. Anyway, they finally did it. Credits: Thanks to Matt C for finally finding the right type of LED required for this application. One of the brighter minds What you need: 1. Drill 2. Wiring loom - red and black 3. Screwdriver 4. Tape, connectors, soldering iron 5. Wiring heat shielding tape or tube 6. Additional reverse light unit (one) 7. LED round fog lights (two) - some now could be found on fleabay, but not sure whether quality ranges depending on the supplier. Approach. The fitting is pretty simple and if you have some very basic electrical understanding and can handle a drill, you would be able to get this done pretty simply. 1. Remove the original fog light and make a wiring loom to extend the reverse light to the foglight location. 2. Install the new reverse light, giving you two reverse lights 3. Make a new wiring loom to extending the fog light feed to the new location, by the two round reflector lights. Job done. It took about two hours end to end with some breaks and taking time getting it all done. I think that the final finish is very good so lets see how long it will last. Some LED units are poorly made and they start dropping out after a while, but we shall see. As for now, I am pretty pleased.
