  • Fun covid19 activities.

    First day of no pubs, no coffee shops, restaurants etc.  Spent a fair few hours driving round the empty country roads in the Lotus with no particular place to go.  My 6 year old came to, and whizzed around until he was actually sick.  Been to Halfords and spent too much money on car care shit.   Tomorrows highlight- washing the car 😕 How has everyone else filled their time?

    Suspension refresh advice

    I'm after some advice please, from those on MLOC that have more technical knowledge than me - which is probably most of you! My car is going in to Gav's in January to 'refresh' the suspension.  The wishbones are coming off and need rustproofing - I'm thinking POR 15, is that best? And should I have them passivated first? Also, what bushes should I use? I don't want it to be harsh as it is mostly used on the road. And what about arb bushes? Are there any of those to avoid? Any

    Just put new battery in after 1 yr sitting idle. Neither alarm or immobiliser working.

    Well as ive a bit of time on my hands i went to dig out the S1. As above i fitted a new battery in the car and in the fob, went to start and alarm light on dash flasing but no alarm sounding. Ignition lights coming on but not starting. I presume the cobra alarm and immobiliser is just not de activating. I dont have the manual code I've read about and the dealers are shut due to Covid. Now the dash alarm light is just flashing constantly Anyone any pointers?

    Front Clam removal Elise S3

    does anyone have a guide to removing the front clam on the Elise S3? or is it generally similar to the S2 removal? The reason I want to remove the clam is I think the resistor pack may have failed or be in the process of failing, I'm assuming that it cant be removed any other way?   any help would be greatly appreciated

    The Mustard Yellow Elise S1 Refresh Thread

    So last September I purchased my 5th Elise S1, almost 20 years since I bought my first one back in the day.   It's a high mileage example, but had recently had a part restoration done by the previous owner, including a full suspension refurb with new Nitrons, Ally Radiator and all new brakes with Ultimax Turbo discs, amongst several other things.  However I knew when I bought it that I’d need to spend some time (and money) getting it right, but the “no brainer” price I paid and taking into accou
