Not the sort of phone call you would want is it.
Ouch! Hope he got a discount on the tyres.
woah just been parusing the unfortunate fellas website, check out this in his garage
Porsche 914 with a 911 conversion and how clean/smart is that garage, look at the cupboards. I've only got a shed with a old crappy Ikea cupboard that's broke down the middle.
It's not like I'm a Lotus expert, but I assume, partly from the thread, that the owners manual clearly explains exactly how they must be lifted, I assume they are heavily weight towards the back, so you should NOT use a conventional four post ramp.Originally Posted by Duncan
It is probably not safe, and unbalanced anyway, but taking the front wheels off removes that vital extra bit of weight from the front end, and, well, bang !!!
Blimey, I'm off to have a nose around then, lol, I gather from his comment about having to make do with a 911 he wasn't exactly short of a couple of quid, lol.Originally Posted by Nige
Blimey thats not a garage thats an operating theatre ..........Shame about the lotus as well !!!!!!
Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!
lol, yep - it's cleaner than my kitchen!!Originally Posted by drinkyI can see now - after looking again at the pics and reading more of the thread. I thought it was a drive-on ramp, and couldn't work out how they hell they had managed to do that and for it to end up how it did! I now see it's a four point lift, just four points of contact, and obviously the weight on the rear just flipped it up and backwards!!Originally Posted by Green Growler
what are you doing on lotuse sites GG - you thinking about part-exing the vec for a little two seater number?!?!
you gotta love this bit:
"Dammit!!!! And I have the Central Florida Lotus Fun Run on Saturday which I've been organizing. Guess I'll have to drive the 911. "
my heart bleeds!!! he doesn't seem too p1ssed off. not like us, having to make do with cr@ppy replacement vehicles like ford fiestas!!
