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

Your car looks smashing out and about in those pictures. My car has a slightly stiff gearshift but you learn it and it becomes second nature. I have some "uprated" linkages and the powerflex bushes as well. Thanks for your feedback. If the stiff gearshift is a characteristic of these cars...

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

Okay, so here goes, a summary of my first proper drive in #138; Woke up at 7:00 am, and left the house at 7:45 am - the first step was to familiarise myself with the lights (switches) and hazards. No rearview mirror to adjust, but the N/S door mirror needed a bit of an adjustment, so with no power m...

Re: Lee's Exige

Looks lovely :thumbup:

Are you going to do a complete strip and rebuild, or just the suspension and underside?

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

That’s great news! 😎👍 have you stopped looking at it yet?! 😄😄 Yep some photos would be great or perhaps a video if you can? A bit disappointing that Jon didn’t give the inside of the car a good clean 🙁 Fingers crossed for good weather tomorrow, enjoy! 🤞 Indeed, will do my best to get some good phot...

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

Great news, but where are the photos! :thumbup: Yeah, forgot to take any as I was too excited, and wanted to take it for a spin as soon as it rolled off the trailer, and then it started to rain so came back and parked it up in the garage before the rain got worse, but then it cleared up. No fun in ...

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

Hi Lankan, any news/update on the car or have I missed it? 😬🤔 Ah, good timing - yes, Jon dropped #138 off a couple of hours ago today! :) I took it 'round the block' for a quick spin, but haven't driven it properly as yet since it started to rain :evil: , and traffic had also built up, so may try e...

Re: C64 box killers - post in here

Interesting thread, which I have only just come across after #138 had its gearbox taken apart (to install a Quaife ATB diff), and then reinstalled without replacing anything else! :D No issues were reported though, so, fingers crossed, seems like there is still some life in the internals. On another...

Re: What "facts" about your lotus have you heard that are wrong

You still got that Torsen Diff? :mrgreen: I will, when I take delivery of #138, and all the bits there removed from it... You want to help me recover most of the £1,000? :D Maybe not "most" of it, but I reckon I could assist with "some" :mrgreen: Okay, PM me your offer and we ca...
