S1 Audi Elise

Post by philthy » Thu Sep 30, 2021 2:42 pm

Back in a lotus again, can’t seem to stay away very long.

Drove down south and back yesterday to collect (767miles :tired )

It is quite a well known car, being the first Auto Technix/Bernard Scouse conversion.
Apparently it’s quite quick but wouldn’t know yet because it won’t start, currently trying to figure out the problem but it’s more than likely sensor related. Most expensive broken car I’ve ever bought :lol:

Hoping to have it properly sorted by the time the decent weather comes back round.

Thanks, will be taking my time with this. Plan will be to Elige kit it whenever I get the garage built.

Spent some time getting to know how the conversion is running and already found some issues, the emerald had a connection which was shorting out. It’s in need of some serious TLC

My mechanic has been helping out
