  1. Color looks familiar! Good luck with your build.

  3. Spots are from water soaking into the weave. They are very difficult to remove and your best bet everytime is prevention before it happens with 3M clear film when the carbon is new. The best options that seem to come up again and again as the best solution are: 1) WD40 - spray liberally, rub in, leave to soak overnight, rub again. May require multiple tries. Some people say it does not last as long as the other options below so you have to do it again and again. 2) Wood Silk furniture polish - cover liberally, polish and repeat again. Can be found on Amazon Amazon.com: Aristowax Original Wood Silk Aerosol Fine Furniture Polish w Beeswax NO SILICONE (1) : Health & Household 3) Autoglym super resin polish. Same approach as the others above. 4) Mer Bumper and Vinyl gel - almost impossible to find in North America as it is a UK only product. Be careful with the clear coat as these spots will come back again and again. Cover it with clear coat and you are stuck with the spots under the clear coat.
  4. If you want a Texas option, Jeff Sloan at British Auto Specialists in Dallas is an ex-Caterham dealer. He is very familiar with Caterhams and the zetec installation and could probably arrange for a rebuild. British Auto Specialists | (britauto.com)
  5. Congratulations on buying your "new" to you Caterham. You certainly bought a very unique one with a great history of owners.
  6. Thanks - I got a link message say it was for sale but think you are likely right. Will remove in next week's update.
  7. Understandable decision in the circumstances. You still have an invite to bring the Miata to NJMP for a regular run group in September at the USA7s event.

  9. Beachman Caterham or Rocky Mountain Caterham should have them.
  10. An S2 is 11 feet long. If this is just the chassis without all the stuff bolted to it then I bet you could put it diagonally on its side and make it fit. Dimensions are on the base of this linked page Lotus Seven Register - Series Two Page (lotus7register.co.uk)
  11. Swap around and read plugs. However, I think you found a likely candidate with your spark plug test.
  12. Originals look fine. The recent switch in also look fine except for 4 which is a little carbon fouled. That would indicate a rich mixture or weak spark not getting optimium combustion. Seems to line up with the issue of not getting consistent or a weak spark. I would not worry about the dielectric grease. Its fine for now.
  13. If it is not on craigslist via the linked ad above then it is sold.
  14. One other thing - when you took your first set of plugs out did the tips show evidence of running rich or leaning out? I am expecting you should see them fairly clean but would like to confirm.
