Re: Window Winder Handle,

Did you consider to use a pair of ordinary black plastic cranks? They are cheap and light so a perfect fit for a Lotus.

Re: Exgie S1 brought back to life

Your car looks fantastic :clap: Oh a question if ok. I’ve been thinking about a colour change. Something that’s put me off is refitting the headlight covers as have heard horror stories and seen some over the years with wonky sealant or constant condensation and even a couple of cars with screws hol...

Re: Throttle travel - seeking 100% !!!

As no one else is answering I give it a try: If I remember right you can turn the TPS a little within its fixing screws. You may drill slightly bigger holes into the plactic housing of the TPS if there is not enough movement available. On the other hand the most important thing is that the butterfli...

Fantastic car, congratulations. The sunshine really brings the Chrome Orange to live. The best colour for an Exige S1, of course :D

Re: LOTUS sticker on rear clam

The sticker from Dan have arrived and I'm very happy with them. The LOTUS sticker is perfect. I can highly recommend him.
