Petrol Smells With The Roof Down?

19 posts in this topic

Hi Jonathan, got mine from Chrisropher Neal in the end.

 

 

Decided to replace both pipes. Breather pipe was around £38 and Filler hose was £18. Apparently theres two types of filler hose depending on your chassis nnumber. Earlier versions need a part thats £80.

 

Haven`t fitted mine yet so hope they all fit. The new breather hose is quite impressive.

I'm getting this done as the moment.

We decided to go for generic parts from Merlin Motorsports. I'll try to get the details and some instruction.

      Hi guys
      Apologies for the shameless plug, but thought some of you might be interested...
      As well as being a proud owner of an S2 Elise, I'm also a graphic designer and have just put together a range of Elise/Exige t-shirts, inspired by the famous Colin Chapman quote: 'Simplify, then add lightness'.
      They're available from www.mercht.com/u/kerm111t for a limited time (14 days from today) and come in a choice of five colours. Choose from the S2 Elise 111S, 111R or Exige (or all three if you're so inclined!)
      I'd really appreciate it if you could spare the time to take a look, provide me with any feedback and (obviously) would appreciate it even more if you choose to purchase one! Would be fantastic to see a few being worn at next year's LiTP!
      If you like them please feel free to spread the word within the Lotus community, or if there are any other designs you'd like to see just give me shout (thinking about adding the S1 Elise and V6 Exige at some point in the future).

      Thanks
      Rob

      Pair of great condition used Tillet B5 seats in full carbon, not the carbon/fibreglass standard version. Full Seat pads, with side mounts on slimline runners. 
       
      These are over a grand each new on special order I believe.  Stock picture, but same seat, just bare carbon front and rear.
       
      Can send photos if you need them, or update this if requested. 
       
      Cheers

      So I spent a lot of today replacing the rear wheel bearings. Whilst in the area I had a good poke around the toe links and can't decide what to do. It's a V plate S1 elise with aluminium hub uprights. Road tyres and not tracked but quite hard road use round the peaks most days. Joints on the toe link are of the captive ball variety with conical spacer, all moving freely. Look like original parts to me.
      So do I:
      (a) Pretend I never read any of the toe link fail threads and get on with my life.
      (b) Spend the £300 + geometry from hangar111, elise-parts, elise-shop etc
      (c) Spend the £500 + geometry on the spitfire kit.
      (d) Replace just the end that tends to fail.
