So you think you have a fast car

I recently had a driving aid removed from the lower area of the windscreen in order to pass an MoT because the device was deemed to obscure the driver's field of vision. Obviously I disagreed with this opinion and the device went straight back after the MoT, but I am surprised Red Victor passes an M...

PayPal and deposits

Dave, you asked where you stand. Short answer is, still bound in a contract. I will email you later today, a bit tied up at present. And BTW it's nothing to do with PayPal. email sent. In essence, the buyer has failed to complete the contract, but the contract still exists. Dave has at least two op...

That's a long bonnet for a 1300cc engine, could have been tempted in my youth
But surely, Pete, with your new super shelving and seemingly unlimited garage space you could easily accomodate this fine vehicle, no ? :lol:

Removing carpet glue

Given that you are likely to lay new carpet, my first question would be, why bother? Any well-set-in adhesive will simply aid location of the new material you fit. If you have merely thin patches, less than 1mm thick, I'd say leave well alone. If you have great dollops of stuff (a dollop is anything...

Rear wiper alternative arm/blade

I'm looking to replace the rear wiper arm and blade on MB61, which I believe to be the same size as the SE6x. What I have came with the car and even if OEM both the blade and the arm have been bent (or should I say "realigned"... !) by a previous owner. The blade holder is black, and the arm is shin...

Ex Speedy se5a

slapped a big wedge on it and is selling it on, Well to be pedantic, he's *offering* to sell it on, at an asking price that he may well not realise given the comments in this thread :wink: As we've discussed before some years ago, while 'fast buck' sellers like this may leave a nasty taste in the m...

Dash cams.....

I've been using a Winycam 300HD on the front, bought new, and a Cobra CDR820E (off eBay) on the back of my daily driver for about 5 years now. It was only when moving them to another car and checking they were recording properly in the new vehicle that I noticed the Winycam was showing a date and ti...

Lots of GTCs with GTC numbers
AIUI it's not the "GTC" that's so much significant as the number 381. Are there others bearing the build number of the car on the plate? This is the only one I can recall having heard about.

For Sale - 1983 GTC Auto with LPG Conversion (Previously Owed by Bill Sims)

Whilst this immaculate car is in the public eye, as it were, can anyone tell me how it came by its registration? I recall mention of this in Slice a while ago, and its pertinence is well known. But it's not a plate to which a personal plates dealer would attach special significance, and I doubt that...

Gtc respray

If you read round a lot of Scimitar literature, web sites and so on, you'll find a number of places that seem to have a good reputation for Scimitar resprays. Apart from the two already mentioned I can think of Spa Garage in Leamington, Barry Herber in Norfolk, and Avon Classic Cars in Weston-Super-...

Not exactly the model you might be looking for, but certainly in the "very good" category, MB43 is currently available. http://www.middlebridge-scimitar.co.uk/ ... .php?id=48

Astonished

Over the years I have bought various kinds of alloy wheel cleaners most of which left the alloy dull. Today I thought I would try something different so used Astonish oven cleaner - used the sponge part of the applicator not the abrasive side and its done the job and seems to have left the shine on...
