2. GeoffSmith - 1 set, classic black, NO CLIPS, S2
3. Clemo - 1 set, red, clips, S2

Borders telepathy in action :D

I had that in mind. In fact, and without breaking any confidences, I've had a couple of other approaches saying "love to, but cash flow . . . " So I'm intending to go see Merlin, probably on Wednesday, and ask for a price for 7 and a price for 10. Ab2cv is also loaning me one of his reducer pieces (for those of us who have S2s), and I'm hoping that will arrive by Wednesday as well, so I can take it with me and ask Merlin for a price.
Once we have Merlin's prices and can compare them with list, let's then see if it's worth approaching Amber or Demon Tweeks or someone else. My only observation is that we save postage with the Merlin option, because I can easily collect. With the others, we'd have to pay postage and VAT on top, which would negate some or all of their discount.

I will also find out from Merlin how much money they want when. They don't usually bill until they ship, so my aim is to pay a smallish deposit up front and the balance on delivery, but they may want payment in full up-front for a special order.

Happy to take additions to the list for the time being; I can always adjust quantities before placing the final order.

Team, just to say I probably won’t be getting to Merlin this week. I have NOT done a runner, disappeared, sold the Elan or anything else. I had a call at 7:00 this morning to say that my mum died in her sleep overnight. One of my brothers is in Western Canada, and the other in Lincolnshire, so neither is really in a position to help with arrangements in Wiltshire, which means my mind will be off Lotus for a few days.

I’ll get to Merlin when I can, and will report back. Last I saw they were quoting delivery early April, so we still have a bit of time to order and still have the hoses for handover at CC.

Please bear with me while I sort out Life; thanks
Jonathan

Jonathan,

I'm sure that i speak on behalf of everyone at LEC - we all understand that there are times when you have to re-prioritise at little notice, clearly there are far more important things for you to be concentrating on right now. Thoughts and condolences from West Wales.

Very sorry to hear this Jonathan.

I was in a very similar position to you a couple of years ago so fully understand where your thoughts and priorities lie right now. Samco can wait for another day. They aren't important at this point in time
