  Pictures From Lotus, Early 80's
Posted by: Chris Williams - 11 Apr 2021, 21:13 - Forum: General Discussions on the DOC / Car / Company / JZD - Replies (4)

Copied from our Facebook page:
Here are some photos I've been meaning to scan for a while. I posted them on a Lotus Europa group with some Lotus related photos but think they may be of interest here.
I would have taken them in the early 1980's at a scrapyard local to the Lotus factory.

The first photo shows three DeLorean chassis that have been run over by a JCB a few times.
Looking closely I can see that they were once fully made up cars but the bodies have been forcibly removed from their chassis.
I don't remember seeing any DeLorean bodies anywhere.

The second photo shows a close up of a DeLorean chassis and engine.
The third photo shows a pair of DeLorean Doors that have been flattened.
A couple of people in the Lotus group say these are likely to be prototypes.

CARS at the SPA - Sunday 26th. September 2021
 
The second “Cars at the Spa” is being held at the Pump Room Gardens set in the heart of the regency spa town of Leamington. Adjacent to the Royal Pump Rooms (CV32 4AA) and beside the shopping area known for its small individual shops in addition to the larger multiples, it offers an interesting day out.
 
The Pump Room Gardens are just across the road from Jephson Gardens, a large park with many floral displays and an interesting indoor tropical house. Leamington also has a multitude of cafes, and restaurants within easy walking distance.
 
The show itself is open to any classic vehicles with an emphasis on those over 25 years old. A programme will be published by Rotary showing details of all the cars on display together with the schedule of the day’s events, including entertainment in the Victorian Bandstand.
 
The application form and all other details are available from our website www.carsatthespa.co.uk 
 

Thank you.

  A nice trip to stretch the legs of #11789
Posted by: SpudMurphy - 31 Mar 2021, 20:08 - Forum: Members Cars - Replies (2)

Hi.
I thought it appropriate to post on the forum the fact that I took my car on it's first (in my ownership) 100+ mile run from Cardiff to Barry then on to the Brecon Beacons and Storey Arms.
It was a very hot day and the car performed very well with the engine temperature not giving any cause for concern.

I did notice the New fuel pump howling away, and I guess that I may need to install a rubber air dam to prevent hot air passing over the fuel tank area? Any advice ?

It certainly brought a lot of smiles, toots, waving and picture taking.
It's been a tough 2 years 9of retirement) on this,my first DeLorean.

At last I no longer spend my day thinking about it lol.

Over the years I've received great support from Chris Williams, and even Chris Parnham managed to lever open my wallet when I purchased an ex pilot car hood from him. I believe that we both own quite a rare DeLorean front grill, but that's a story, to be told by somebody else, on another day.

I've already had some regraining work done by Chris Nicholson, on the drivers Rear Quarter, T section and Chris regrained the hood prior to my purchase. 
I'll remove the fascias, sills side lights to enable Chris to go to town on it and then install a new rubber side stripe.

It was never going to be a concourse car, but any modifications made have not been invasive.

Thanks again - it's a reality now, not just a dream (and at times .... nightmare).

  Door Handle Replacement
Posted by: lordivanhoe - 25 Mar 2021, 11:31 - Forum: 8 - Frame / Body / Interior - No Replies

Hi all;
If one is suffering from the broken plastic door handle, I understand that the replacement metal ones are a good idea.
My question is:
Is it a straightforward job to do the replacement, and if not, has anyone produced or got (or is it on the forum somewhere) a bit of a 'how to' guide, perhaps?
Many thanks!
Ivan.
