Fitted said vessel tonight. Not 100% happy with one of the clips, so I’ll get a jubilee clip for it as well.

Few pics

Hole where plastic one was

New one in and not leaking

Old one kicked to the kerb

Just been out in the lotus to return a non fitting windscreen wiper and all appears to be fine. Got stuck in some stop/start traffic for around 15 minutes and temps went upto 96deg C. Literally after getting into some clear, moving air they dropped down to 92 and then 88degC.
I did a short ( 4mi ) blast on the motorway and they went further down to 87degC which was sustained until the end of the run.

No leaks, so all appear to be good.

Milestone!

I cleaned the dash on the loltus on Sunday.

It now whooshes when I am gaining speed like a turbo when you lift. Its 100% at the front of the car, not the back.

Wonder what I have disturbed?

I have looked at the schematics of the s2 and I think one of the plastic pipes that is on the “heater box” has shifted a bit. I am going to remove the dash top and take a look*

In other news I have on yoko v105 which I have learnt are now OE tyres for the s3 exige base model.

I am curious how much extra grip I might get with a set of AD08R , or I have noticed that yoko now have the AD052 out which is their top of the line tyre..

Next day..

ooks like I am going to be getting some AD08R faster than planned.

The arse end drivers side has a flatty. Bugger.

Got a company to call tomorrow and Ill get them fitted ASAP.

Service on 22 MAR so a reassuringly expensive month

I am going to paint these two bits I think. Just undone the mounts. Car isn’t going anywhere for a few days..

k, had a spare 30 minutes at lunch so sanded them ( both plastic ) and panel wiped. Waited for the panel wipe to evaporate.

Heated the can gently with a lamp I have and repeat for the plastics.

Painted 3 coats to just before the point of runs and left the lamp near the paint in between every coat.

Left it 5 minutes between each coat.

Brought it inside to dry faster and it stinks. I am so dead when wife Bond comes home.

I’ll let it cure / dry for 3H and then stick in over at 100 deg C For 10 minutes.

Apparently wrinkle paint is a bit of a black art for if it wrinkles or not.

Still wet but looks like it’s forming

100% not in the oven baking while the wife is out ..

Nice, looking smart, had my Exige 10 years and only managed 32000 miles, had the elise nearly 2 years and only done 2000 miles!

Puncture on right rear from what can only be described as a javelin like head claimed another tyre at the weekend.

Put a new set of AD08R on..

Thats the reference part number - as found on a 2001-2004 Diesel (!) d4d Corolla.

Do you think something might have gone wrong here? This might have been my slight issue
