Winter has done its thing again whilst we were not looking :evil: :evil:

Cold Garage + stone chip = rather large area of lacquer peel on roof.

Battery; Battery Charger and/or winter conditioner is FUBAR.
No juice in Battery, charger is making the wrong charging signals when connected ( pulsating ampage when charging the lotus but steady draw on another battery) and conditioner hasnt done its job.

5 Year guarantee it says. Lets see :D
Umm! What to do next?

Another MOT pass. :lol: :lol: reseated blowing Y-branch at the rear and all good :lol: :lol:

Apparently the 250 mile round trip does wonders for the emissions.

HC about 50 - very good said the man without the woolly hat - which is now on my back seat :shock:

Quite litterally my hat is off to you.
The Lotus Eclat, a lot like the English Whisky company: comes from Norfolk and better than you are often told it is.
