  1. That looks so rewarding. Thanks for sharing the pics, too.
  2. Great spots. I think I recognise a couple of locations, I’m occasionally over there for work. Heres a spot from me;
  3. Vulg’, this is lovely, well done and thanks for sharing.

    It’s a later hood with heated glass.

    No idea what those wires are. Heated rear screen maybe? Looks like a bodge, but not one I remember!

    That looks like it bolts to the boot floor. I’d strongly recommend putting a spreader plate at each boot/bolting to spread the load. It’s thin old metal and the weight of an upside down car on it will cause the cage to burst through the floor. Some beermat sized plates of maybe 5mm+ thick would do it. Costs nothing and will save your life. /sensible head.

    I was told that the bushes needed lubricating but never bothered. They cost a bomb, as I remember. I think they’re from SuperPro. The suspension was 2nd hand but “nearly new” when it went on. I asked for standard factory height but they dropped it 10mm, as I recall and, again, I never bothered adjusting it. looking forward to pics of the cage going in!
  8. No, there are thousands of them, but only one with that registration plate. Which you can buy for a tenner. I don’t get it at all. (Nice car, btw, I’m only questioning the sanity of the valuation)
  9. £55k?! Just because it was on the telly? I can’t get my head around that. It must have doubled or tripled the actual value just because of Minder. Who would pay a £30k premium just so they can say “oh yes, this actual car was once on the telly a bit about 30 years ago”?
  10. Right, I appreciate it's an unpopular opinion, but I fucking hate this hot weather. I have a 3 hour drive in the BMW later which, normally, is a pleasure - aircon on, Radio6, cruise control and maybe a poncy coffee on the go. But the aircon is weak, despite being regassed a couple of months ago, so instead of singing along to Slaves at 15C, I'll be boiling like a bastard lobster. Roll on autumn. There. I said it. Fight me.

    I did have, until I bought this Lotus.

    I’d say at least double that, maybe more if the sun is shining.

    I think I knocked the other one off once and replaced the rusty bolt with an IKEA leftover.
  14. Fuck them and fuck it. There’s always some smart-arsed twat online who will pick holes in your work. It’s a Corsa, not a Bugatti, so if you’re happy with it then forget it and enjoy the car.
