  • Shes a keeper, at least for now!

    Hi Everyone After being royally messed around and eventually let down by someone who was supposed to be buying my car and the exciting prospect of summer just around around the corner I've decided to keep hold of my Elise S for a little longer and intend on taking her to Le Mans for the 24 hour before re-advertising.  My car has covered nearly 30k miles and although the car has a fresh MOT, is fully serviced and is huge fun there are a few jobs I plan on taking care of and wanted to document my progress on here and maybe ask for the odd bit of advice along the way. I'd really appreciate any recommendations or advice anyone can give.     My list so far: Front clam respray Body coloured centre console and heater control surround New front towing eye bracket Suspension refresh,  including new bushes, bearings ARB links etc Exhaust heat-shield replacement TRD Air-box and filter MWR lift kit   Hopefully have an update soon, but here's a few pics for now.   Dan

    Duraline on mmc disk backs?

    Hi,   as per title. Just putting this back together, do I need to put duraline on the back of the disks where they touch the drive flanges?   there seems to be evidence of some there previously but the mating face of the disk looks like it might be steel...   thanks,   gareth

    Any meets in the West Midlands area?

    So I've been scanning the events forum from time to time hoping to see something happening vaguely near me, but nothing ever does.  Are there not many members in the West Midlands? I'm talking Worcester, Evesham, South Birmingham area.  I'd like to start using my car a bit more, but driving all the way to the East Midlands just to start a run or meet is a bit much when I have family commitments to take into account, the Peak District is out of the question for a casual run out. Anybody interested in such a thing?

    New car at last S190 Pics updated

    Well it looks like after a year away from cars, DIY and building work at home, and of course a new addition to the family it looks like Friday I'll be back behind a lotus wheel.    Train tickets booked, just hope it's not a return.
