Good new Bad News
 
The Good news is I have gone a bought a new track day car.:wink: Lotus Exige supercharged...

I survived telling the wife and I still have my head! She is in Canada just now so I was pretty safe.:faint:

The bad news is I have to sell one of my current track day/Project cars either the Hood or the 90% complete 5Exi, damm and blast.. :mmph: Just got the LSD new gearbox and the body is fitted now as well so its the home straight to the IVA this year.

The problem is I only have room for two (toy) cars and moving one on was always the intention long term.

So I will put the Hood and the new project hot Pinto engine up as a package, first and see what response I get. If that fails then I could be looking at taking a loss to move the 5Exi on to a budding builder to finish.

Got myself the reg. GR10 ONE to plaster on it too. Damm Damm..

I have just ordered a set of the fat-arse rear body wheel arch extenders from Terry this week as well. I really would like to finish it off if I have the chance.

Must sell the Hood is the clue. :decision:

Hi John.

Sorry to hear this. But in truth. I think you have made the right choice with the Lotus. Can't go wrong. I would if I had the chance.

If you go down selling the 5EXI route (not selling the hood), then depending on price, sorry to say I may be interested! Getting to the end of my build know. Though I may have the same problem with the other half!

Sell both, and plough the cash into track days and consumables! :D

Debating if I may need a set of them to get by IVA, not done final body fit yet but its very close on the vertical view as to whether I will, thankfully I think they suit the car.

I have had them on order for over a week now with a two week delivery.

Terry stated that Mark wants to detail how to fit them so I will see when I collect just exactly what it is that is on offer.

I will temp fit with double sided tape or whatever and post some shots of the fitment so you can judge better how they cover.

I intend to go to IVA with standard Rover road wheels so I am expecting the arches to bury the wheels I have, I have/did have longer term plans that will make better use of the extensions.
