Omega General Help / Re: Elite jacking points corroded.

I've just got back from Public Enemy Customs down in Fleet. They had the car for an inspection, and it's only the front jacking points  that need repairing. Also they dismissed the MOT testers comments as incorrect, and that a permanent repair is 100% feasible, also the rest of the car is extremely sound and after the repairs are finished, they are going use a high temp steam clean on the underside and then properly LanoGuard and inject all cavities,and although similar to the home DIY products, it's done with pro equipment. Also they use the Lanoguard heavy duty grease on welded seams and any other vulnerable spots, so that's a yes from me, and that should see me and the car end our days on the road together....thanks to Boris Gumps scrappage scheme....tosser! :)

No idea Al, car came from Elite Pete about 10 years ago, and iirc SP30 before that, and up to date no probs with it during my ownership :-\ So I'll break out my best club hammer tomorrow and 'fix it' proper!

Broken wire, worth having a look around for. Also yes to waiting 3-4 seconds for the release, my two cop cars are a lot quicker than the Elite for some reason.-

I've temporarily rigged up a pull cord to the manual release, but other than that there's no sign of life by either using the switch or remote, so thinking there's no electrickery somewhere up the lid end :)

Just a quick one, the boot on the Elite won't open, everything checks out i.e nos switch fitted  and fuses checked, but no action up the rear end. :o So presuming there must be a duff solenoid lurking somewhere, just need some idea as to where. tia :y

Thinking I might punt it around a few places, just to get an idea of costs and final results. And in all honesty I really like this Elite and it's had a fair amount of money spent on it in the past couple of years. So lets see if it's worth saving :-\

Just had a friendly verbal heads up from the MOT man. So thought I'd take a look this afternoon....and yes not looking good. So the question being, is a repair to all four points a feasible option, or should I send the car for scrap? :-\

I was there as well, but got called away, but wasn't much use as I got caught up in a massive traffic jam near Oxford. So by the time I got back home the problem was sorted. But what I did see, it was worth making the run up, and would certainly go next year.

Just a heads up on those hoses, not available anymore, so if there's any problems with the ones that you have, then you will have to get inventive. I had one that was leaking, so I cut the ends of, and with my bad eyesight I screwed it up and had to have the car low loaded to a garage, and they took two goes at fixing them with spring clips/ jubilee clips.

Same here, all three are staying, not interested in their value, as they'll all end up as scrappers in the near future anyway, due to the sad eco idiots and I'll be on the bus! >:(

Agree 100%.... you've only got to watch traffic cops or police interceptors, to see what the cars are expected to do day or night :y
