SE6A rebuild stuck

As many on here know, I sold my '78 SE6a on here earlier this year because I felt no longer physically capable of doing exactly what you are pretty well progressed with. Ironically, there is a very slight possibility that I may be buying the car back! I have done my share of these kind of things in ...

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Thought this might be appreciated by some on here.

Neat little Lancia, Arbroath yesterday - one that has escaped the salty Angus and Aberdeenshire roads.

I need the rear lights and a decent radiator and also the front bottom light covers if you have any cheers
Sorry, none of the above.

When I get a chance I will do an updated list of the bits 'n' bobs that are left - may just contain what someone is needing but can't find.

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

26th July, Rover P6 at the side of the B9113 near Dubton. For years there was the remains of an old tractor sat at the house on the grass verge - still there on Streetview. The way the Rover is parked suggests that it gets used too. Screen Shot 2019-07-27 at 16.26.15.png Screen Shot 2019-07-27 at 16...

Help needed after 5 years of laying dormant!

The first, right angle type bracket in the second picture looks like it could be the rest for the driver's left foot that attaches to the transmission tunnel on automatic cars (and possibly manual cars as well ? ).

SPAX or AVO or Gaz or Protech?

I would not use Spax ever again. They do not seem well made, are sprayed with one coat of paint with no primer and after not many miles will start their infamous clunking noise. For some reason or other these facts seemed to upset some Spax groupies :shock: - I don't know why. Check my project threa...

Need documentation on a SE5

I have heard of wildly varying experiences too - sometimes the simplest thing can turn into a nightmare while what you might think would be very difficult is no problem at all. For example, I changed the frame number on a motorcycle by filling in the change section on the V5c and sending a rubbing o...

Need documentation on a SE5

I don't mean to highjack this thread, but I have a slightly similar situation - although the vehicle is in the UK: The only vehicle inspections I have ever had done are MOT tests, so can anyone tell me how the DVLA inspect vehicles now that they no longer have local offices? Do they send someone out...

Se6a “number 3”

That is looking very good indeed. Also seems that it is getting used which is excellent - pity about the fuel pump though :? . I have to say that I would have had no qualms about driving down to Manchester in it, and I did do up to 400 miles in a day in it on more than one occasion. 100 litres of fu...

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Common or garden MGB, Marykirk, Sunday 23rd June. A disturbingly pink shade of red and looking like it has had new rear springs fitted but needs new front springs. The summer Sunday sunshine brings them out of hibernation - still good to see though.

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

SA10 - I have seen this one a few times over the past decade or so. Sometimes I wonder if I should fit something similar to my little wee 20 year old Honda 125 - just to let the uninitiated know that I ride it because I want to, not because I have to :wink: . But, it is not really my sort of "thing"...

I sat my first driving test in a Lamborghini when I was aged 16 (a tractor, obviously :lol: ).

Hi David,

I will send you a PM.

Hope you don't want the silencers or wheel balancer as I have just placed them in a local auction.

This should help a bit. Of the items shown in the pictures on this thread, this is the rough of what is still available: Starter Motor **Wiper Motor - gone. Cooling Fans (was going to use two as a sort of period upgrade) ATF-G (about 10 litres left) **Wheel Balancer - gone to Broomfield auction. **O...
