On mine that doesn't work as I have the european boot shape. You have do do it with one knee in each corner to avoid flexing the GRP. Even more uncomfortable I suspect. The real pain is avoiding kicking the spoiler when you get in and out for spanners a hundred times.

That was crazy - if my giant a$$ climbed in there the car would be a flintstone-mobile in a second.

That was just a test run. We didnt actually do any work. Just figuring how fun the major will be next year :)

Struck that pose many a time with my '84. I will say that usually whenever I had to tinker at that end of the engine compartment I took the engine cover off. Took all of about 2 minutes. Didn't help much, but helped a little.

Yeah - we actually did do that when the clutch master got changed out last year. Much "easier".... :rolleyes: :D
Indeed, that would have been sucktastic if you hadn't removed the seat for me. Call me twisted, but I'm actually looking forward to do the major on the car next year.

OK I may be stupid... :huh: :eek:



But aren't you supposed to hold up the hatch with a broomstick (Lotus Tool #1) and not that little, solitary finger???? :no:

And, regards the Lotus Position:

I thought it was MUCH harder to stick my legs through the open roof panel without the seat in place. -poke-


We all have our own ways of working with our mistresses.... ;)
