    roof bag

    Does anyone by any chance know if an S2 long tail roof will fit in an S1 bag? Thanks Graham
  2. People are very quick nowadays to take to social media when they have some sort of gripe, but people often forget to report good service, so I would just like to to say thank you very much to PJS for being very helpful today when I needed a couple of items urgently. I have not been there before but I found Paul to be extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you. Graham

    Ok, is that actually through Potterhanworth on the B roads? Just had a quick look, I did some work at Woodhall Spa at a cricket event once and the Spitfire did a fly past for us!

    That would be my ideal day out next week (well not quite - I was supposed to be in Cornwall!!)

    I'm hoping to have 2 or 3 days out, one of which I fancied going up round the Bamford area, so I will hopefully be having a cruise round one day next week. I still fancy a trip to the seaside though! dont really care where 😁

    Didn't think so really but I'd rather have a day out in the Lotus than the 3 cylinder Focus!

    A52 Skegness

    As my holiday is of course cancelled I'm hoping to have a couple of days out in the Lotus - I'd like to see the sea! Anyone done the A52 route to Skegness in a Lotus? I've not been that way much for a long time and dont whether its a good route. Normally I'd head off to Wales but it appears thats still a no go area.....
  9. I also went for a blast round the Peaks this morning, thinking it could be the last for a while 😞 Stay safe all, looks like could be a long time before we get breakfast at Hassop
  10. Wow that's shiny!!!! if you get bored you can come and have a go at mine!!
  11. It may also be worth changing the oil (if not already done) It can sometimes give some improvement in synchro operation
  12. I'd be interested, with a plus 1. Was already planning on taking the wife there this year for a special treat anyway 😂😂
  13. I think you have to peel back the fabric at the ends (I'm sure there's a write up on Seloc) On the front cable one end is either crimped or soldered in and the other floating with a nipple. I have made a new end with 2 small M3 grub screws (like a solderless nipple) to crimp the cable in position, if this works ok it will be easy to slip a new cable in if it happens again. I imagine you could do the same on the rear if you can be bothered with the faff, I just like to prove I can do it! 🙂
  14. Isn't the rear cable on the long tail longer? The ones crafty plates advertises on ebay are the front ones I believe (although I think he can make up what you want) Coincidentaly my front cable broke on Friday while traveling back from Bakewell and it was hammering it down!! I had to try and lash it up with duct tape to stop it acting like a parachute! I'm in the process of making a repair on mine by making a slightly different end piece at one end and using a length of new cable, cos I'm too tight to pay 50 quid 😂
  15. Springs are pretty cheap in relation to dampers, so if you think they're ready for change they probably won't break the bank.
  16. Give me lanteryu's Europa anyday, I have a proper soft spot for those!
  17. Thanks, its not going away yet, I plan to get out again before the salt spreading starts if it ever stops raining. Unfortunately I was working yesterday when it was sunny (in Castle Donington ironically!)
  18. I'll be having the floors off and getting it on the lift for a good check over during the winter, so I'll have a good look at the tank/hoses then.
  19. Thanks for that info, I will certainly check that 👍
  20. It's so easy to talk yourself into 'needing' to do these jobs! 😁
  21. I'm hoping to use mine a bit more yet if the rain ever stops! I need to replace/upgrade my gear cables, find an annoying squeak that occurs on acceleration, have the undertrays off and service/check over/clean. I thought the fuel tank was a pretty involved job? mine sometimes smells a bit petroly when I've filled up which always gets me a bit paranoid, but then again so does the coolant smell, the squeak, the temperature guage....................😂
  22. On the K series its 102 deg, I guess it will be somewhere similar but I'm sure someone will have an accurate figure.
