    Well, the long hours at work continue so there's not been a lot of time to work on the car.

    As reported last update, I've got a new engine outlet hose coming from Lotus via Bell & Colvill so that should be here in another week or so. Once that arrives I can plumb up the engine coolant ...

    Oh and another little side I've been working on is replicating the escutcheon for the gearknob.

    You'll have read a while back that I bought a new Lotus OEM gearknob for my car as I never really liked the aftermarket Momo one my car came with. I also bought a new escutcheon for the top ...
