Well yesterday was a bad day, I had been watching a Lotus 911 engine (Sunbeam Lotus engine 2.2 version of the 907 engine) on the eBay of fools, and the price was right, with a minute to go I popped a bid in and set myself up to pop another higher bid in with 10 seconds to go. As expected with 15 or so seconds to go I was outbid, so I pressed the submit button to enter my higher amount (which I am confident would of made me the winning bidder) and eBay decided I needed to re-login!!! By the time I had done that the auction was over and the engine was sold to another. Not the best result in the world, but as always it proves the engine was not for me.
So today with that in mind I decided to get the new shock absorbers from GAZ instead, the engine can come another day, but I will need the shock absorbers sooner. These are the wee beasties, all shiny and blue like the car, so lets just hope they do the trick.
They are on special order only and will take a few weeks to make, so for now the image off there website will have to suffice.
