Mikey Bikey's Scimega

Hi Alan, excellent idea but pretty certain it wont work. They're the rear so can only fit on the inside. I will check though. I was going to fit them the correct way up but they are designed to be at the front where of course the trailing arms are.... sorry Mike, i meant swap from the left hand sid...

Mikey Bikey's Scimega

Only thing I really want is the chassis for mock up. no wonder you are getting grief, only half a car!!! AND you have noticed that part of the...

Corky's Scimitars & S2K

and an excellent repair job there, at DOUBLE quick speed, especially after the 'hammering' it looked to have taken

Too Much Work

Jim is absolutely right, failure of the hazard switch contacts through lack of use is a common problem (been there myself, on more than one car) so repeated operation of the switch may cure the problem. You've shown that the flasher unit itself works, because the hazards work. However, there's anot...

SCISSOR LIFT FOR <£1K 2,268kg

Emissions test and catalytic converter

Just to help confuse/clarify my Mk2 LHD Sabre 18Ti was registered in the UK at the end of December 1993 to avoid the need for a Cat, which was a requirement as of Jan 1994. I was under the same impression that 1993 was the change over but a niggle said 'K' plate means 'Kat required' from that MoT f...
