Converting alloy wheels to split rims

You can get split rims custom made in whatever size you like from Image - can’t remember the Compomotives you reference, but if they’re the Alleycat style then these are about right:

Chassis modifications for roll cage fitment?

Sorry to resurrect an older post - is anyone interested in a rollcage for a Scimitar SE5 or 5a? My cage builder is nearly finished with mine but if there’s interest for more he can measure up and it’ll be easier and cheaper to reproduce. I’ll put pictures up on here and get you guys prices if anyone...

SE5 for sale whole or breaking

Hi all, I picked up a cheap SE5 recently (drunken eBay purchase!) and, once lockdown subsides, could do with freeing up the space in the garage. I’m happy to sell whole if somebody brave fancies taking it on, but equally pretty happy to break for parts as nobody is exactly short of time! Firstly and...

AVIATION ANYONE??

I’ve only just seen this thread - I didn’t realise (bar Jim and Luke) that we had some much interest in aviation on here! If anyone is interested I’m still serving in the RAF and have spent most of the last 18-odd years as a backseater on Tornado F3 and GR4 - I can whack some pics in if they’d be of...

'74 SE5a rolling resto

Long time no update.... Currently having a new workshop built, having knocked down our decrepit garage. The body is back on the chassis having been trimmed-back somewhat, and the lot is off away having the roll cage fabricated. We’re putting in a floor mounted Tilton pedal box mounted on a steel fro...

Essex race engine or parts

Thanks for the offers so far chaps - interested in both the heads and the manifold if you’d like to PM how much you’re looking at (and the spec of the heads). I already have the engine that came in the car so have a bottom end etc; I’m more after ‘spare’ already modified parts. But I’m interested in...
