Re: S1 Exige Conversion

My Dad's mate runs a bodyshop in Hertfordshire, so hoping for a bit of mates rates 🤞 Hopefully don't have to wait long to show you the colour, he has a 6 week deadline for it but he might want to crack it out and get it done. All the loose bits are ready to go with priming, it is only the clams and ...

Re: S1 Exige Conversion

I'll try and get some pictures of the car in the bodyshop at the different stages, but I'm not close to the shop so might be a bit tricky with the lockdown situation etc. I think I'll be able to see after primer (perhaps just before) but this could be the last chance to guess the colour, some probab...

Re: S1 Exige Conversion

Exciting day today, car finally made it to the bodyshop. Thanks to dad for picking it up. https://i.imgur.com/FRSDPmw.jpg Cars are tough to drive without seats as each time the car moves you do too, so a few stalls but made it onto the trailer ok. Strapped down and with a car cover on it to help kee...

Re: S1 Exige Conversion

The bottom instrument shroud piece has had one of the front fixing holes broken for ages, meaning that the screw isn't able to hold it nice and tight, leaving a gap between the two pieces on the right hand side. https://i.imgur.com/2rOJ2GW.jpg So I took one of the M4 spire nuts I was planning to use...

Re: S1 Exige Conversion

My Dad's conversion has them cut out with mesh grilles and to be honest you can't really tell. https://i.imgur.com/vSHgIkK.jpg Or you can do something like this and cut just the end out and route a cooling pipe, which if it is black and you have a vinyl on the remaining bit of intake you probably wo...

Re: S1 Exige Conversion

As discussed before I have seen many S1's on google searches etc that have pretty poorly fitting front stone chip protectors, where they don't cover the 'intake' area properly and you can see the flat surface around them. https://i.imgur.com/c8jiH7T.jpg This is a good example of what I don't like as...
