  1. Congratulations on your comeback Left Dean, commiserations Right Dean. Hour 1 of the big lockdown Dean and you're already reduced to this.... doesn't bode well for the coming weeks 😄
  2. You would always be welcome Ray, whenever that might be...
  3. I never thought I'd say this but thankfully the garden is starting to wake up so there'll be plenty for me to do out there in the coming weeks and months and I'm sure there'll be some decorating to be done too Having already polished and waxed the Lotus, daily and daughter's car I have now moved onto the wife's to make the full set. And I've just about got everything either to hand or on order to build another radio controlled plane, so that lot will keep me busy for a good while yet... hopefully one day I'll be able to get out and fly them all 😁
  4. That's good to hear Paul, they are a top team at PJS for sure. Enjoy your driving
  5. Good choice Alex, always loved the look of the 135R
  6. Excellent work, good to hear you've nearly finished, but I'm starting to wonder now whether we may have all shot ourselves in the foot. With nothing left to do on our Lotus cars and the impending likelihood of self isolation we may end up having to do some decorating 😆
  7. Lovely, you can't beat a good suspension refresh
  8. Welcome to MLOC Paul, my first ever track experience was in my first Lotus at the Nurburgring...very exhilarating! Not sure I'd still have the bottle to do it again now though 😄 Another recommendation for PJS Sports cars, and not too far from you either.
  9. Top work Dave, I still can't get over the transformation of those front brake calipers...that and the fact you managed to bake them in the oven, I'd never get away with that one 😆
  10. Gav is a well respected independent Lotus specialist in Burton - Unit 4 Vehicle Services.
  11. If you only have a thin layer in there then you may we'll be fine Dean. Good to see you giving it a go anyhow
  12. Oh how that brings back memories 😁 I notice you have painted the bores Dean and I'm wondering whether that may make fitting the new bushes and ball joints a bit tricky?
  13. Can't help but admire your resilience Leigh but you're surely getting there now. The Stratos looks and sounds fab....the stuff of dreams
  14. Wow, sorry to see you're selling the Esprit, such a great looking car, a LitP poster car nonetheless. Will be a great buy for someone.
  15. Looking good Fish, are you thinking of tracking it?
  16. Topic now locked. See new topic in 'events' for further details https://www.midlandslotus.co.uk/forum/topic/67860-classic-team-lotus-workshop-tour-tickets-available/
  17. I have now created a new topic in the events section containing latest details and booking details so I will now close this one down.
  18. We have confirmation - The tour will be on Sunday 3rd May 2020. I am making arrangements with Mark H for people to be able to purchase tickets through the MLOC store and am currently waiting to hear back regarding a reservation for Sunday lunch after the event. We also need to arrange a breakfast stop - Meister:- If this date suits you is this something you could look into please? Once I have all the details I will start a proper post in the Events section with a link for payment
  19. If Dave can't sort you out I have a S1 wheel that may also be suitable
  20. Yes, that was in the back of my mind that if all else failed we may we'll make the numbers with +1s and failing that by extending the invitation to other forums. I'm just waiting on final confirmation from CTL that our guide will be available but it's looking like the 3rd of May will be a goer. Watch this space
  21. Well based on replies so far it looks like Sunday 3rd May would be the favoured option. Counting Dave's +1 we have 12 who have expressed an interest and of those at least 8 that look to be ok with that date. I will get back in touch with CTL today to see if the 3rd is still available and if so propose that we take a leap of faith and book the full 20 places. I feel sure we'll be able to fill them all. If the 3rd is no longer available then I'll request the 31st instead.
  22. I could equally do Sundays Dave so based on initial replies we could say Sunday 3rd May, that would then allow your daughter to come along and perhaps suit Drage too 😁.
  23. I've spoken to CTL to check on their weekend date availability for May and we have the following dates currently available:- Sat 2nd/Sun 3rd May Sat 16th/Sun 17th May (I can't do the Sunday) Sun 24th May only - Saturday already booked (This is also the Spring Bank holiday weekend) Sat 30th/Sun 31st May Cost-wise, based on the figures quoted in my original post, it would work out at £37-20 each if we had 20 people going but if we only have 10 then that cost would increase to £44-40 each, so we ideally need more interest in order to make it work. For me the first or last Saturday would be my favoured dates but what does everyone else think?
  24. Thanks to all who've responded thus far and especially with the offers of help. It seems like there could be a good level of interest again, I'll give them a call and see what dates are available around May time. During the week the only times available are in the evenings, I'm not sure that would work that well for us so I would favour a Saturday rather than Sunday, it may make it easier to get a meal in the afternoon too.
