Re: Exige S RGB #138 - a journey towards perfection, well hopefully

I've not done anything so scientific - but it wouldn't surprise me to learn that any modern material easily beats the OEM stuff used by Lotus. Understood, and agree that the latest materials are likely to be much more efficient. I have read that OEM material used actually degrades and crumbles into...

Re: Exige S RGB #138 - a journey towards perfection, well hopefully

I was under my car again tonight and took note that the large piece that surrounds the entire backbox/cat area is actually several simple shapes riveted together. Would be so easy to replicate repair panels out of nimbus for it - its usually the parts near the toe links that go first, would be very...

I had a phase 1 - "interesting" to drive :lol:
Ah, yes, they certainly are, and rather 'entertaining' at that... :D

Re: Exige S RGB #138 - a journey towards perfection, well hopefully

Whoah. Incredible. If you fancy documenting the maxi build on here or turboRenault.co.uk ( where we have some proper Renault beards ) that would be all kinds of awesome. Indeed Andy, it is a cracking piece of kit, the epitome of old school, which is where my preference lie. However, this project wa...

Re: Exige S RGB #138 - a journey towards perfection, well hopefully

I would bin off 5 and 6 even if they were mint - probably one of the biggest source of rattles on these cars when present. I've wrapped the 'U bend part of the cat pipe there with DEI to replace it (I'd certainly put SOMETHING on it, as it's very close to the rear clam and tyre). 30 is dead easy to...

Re: Back at it again.

Is that Nightfall Blue? Cracking colour, plain and simple. :thumbup: Thanks yes Nightfall. Fantastic colour in the sun. Really pops. Only the second one I have seen, the first being Andyzim's, and both look amazing, and this is only seeing photographs! I am sure it will be HARD to let go...

Re: Exige S RGB #138 - a journey towards perfection, well hopefully

Progress on #138 did slow down a fraction due to one reason or another, such as the new Ohlins fronts being shorter than they should be :wtf:, so back to Mick Gardner Racing they went, and now waiting for the fronts to be rebuilt and shipped back to Jon Seal (note that the Bilstein damper is not fro...

Re: Nightfall Blue S2

Lovely colour - looks the business when exposed to sunlight. :thumbup: Did you purchase this from Jon Seal? Yes, every time I spoke to him he gave me an update on the work being done to yours! Ah, yes, as I understand it Jon is rather passionate about the mini-resto project as I am. The reason for ...
