Custom brace across the back there? My car has the three bolts going straight through the body into the chassis, with no metal piece connecting them. 

I'm all for maintaining original colour, but you are going to stray this is one of the nicest colours on the S2.

No Antonio that brace is on all late S2 and S2.2 cars from late 1979 onward.

Well I had not done any more work on the car until two weeks ago when I decided I would try to finish the car for the Classic car show at the NEC, as I was asked to display one of my cars at the show, that would give me just under a month (there is nothing like a deadline to get you focused ehh ?)

So I spent a weekend getting it all running and every thing working, Jake took a short vid of it linked below

I took the car out for a short up and down the street to see how it went, it seemed fine, I was very please as the car had not driven for 20 years. When I stood before the car in a terrible state in the yard where I brought it 2 years ago I longed for the day I would get it moving again and looking like something I would be proud of.

I have since reconolised all the interior leather and fitted most of it, I fitted all the glass yesterday

The bonnet is now on and the firewall panel is fitted, I still have a very long to do list and under two weeks but I should get it done.

I have the same question as Stuart about the block?

Matt have you had any other Esprit other than S1 & S2??

Hi Mike

I Vapour blast my engines I then paint the outside of them so they stay looking good for years.

I've had lots of Esprit's and driven most models but I prefer s1s and S2.2s

I finished the car 16 months ago I just never got round to posting anything up

Short walk around of the car

The car will be at the restoration show at the NEC this weekend
