GTE Auto in Essex

Nice paint and wheels but "stunning" isn't a word I would use. It looks like it would need some major TLC on the cosmetics IF it was running and driving well. New carpets, repairs to interior and painting and general tidying up under the bonnet for example. A whizz over with a polisher and a steam c...

Mystery Car

I'm unfortunately not going to be of much help either. When I first saw the picture, the first name that popped to mind was Lenham... The car certainly seems too small to be based on a Daimler Dart, Harrington Alpine or Trident Clipper. But looking closer, I think Jim might well have nailed it with...

Scimitar will not start

There will a lot more knowledgeable people along soon but.... if you've got no fuel, and the timing and spark is more or less right, then the problem is fuel. Can you pour some fuel down the carb., a cap full, and try and see if you get anything? Or have you got some easy start spray you can spray o...

coupe parts wanted

there is a few on ebay right now. One with poor chrome BUT has a key. prices look OK, snap them all up and make a good set. There used to be a bloke in malta with new ones slowly selling them set by set. I bought a pair for about £100, which seemed a lot at the time but in hindsight i think it was a...

Se5 Gear Selector Mechanism

The bush bottom right fits at the base of the gearstick. The black ones on the left are probably for the ends of the rods. the other two white ones - I would also like to know! I have one of these kits. £45 for basically one bit of plastic (the bottom right one is what I bought it for). If the other...

sunroof motor

How about this number as a possible alternative? 0130805003 https://www.ebay.de/itm/223349736259 Looks very similar. The electircal details are the same (12v 40a 4500u/min) Interestingly I think I found one with your part number for sale https://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-2000-CS-E9-E3-Porsche-Mercedes-VW...

SE5a windscreen fitting - any tips and advice?

advice i once got from a tvr specialist. I've never tried it though. He explained how your screen might not be the same shape as the old one and the time to realise that is going to cause problems, is not when you are 90% into fitting it. his advice was to test fit it with a few bits of spare seal, ...

Goldie the Coupe

on coupe and early SE5 the watts linkages have a smaller bush on each end than normal SE5. The smaller bushes are not available, unless you can find a set NOS. You can get the larger bushes in poly and either get some linkages from a SE5/a or have your original linkages machined out to accept the la...

SE8 Axle noise query

The only problem seems to be to find someone who sells a refurbished axle. Don't know what the situation is like for GTCs, but for the SE5 I keep asking the usual suspects if they have one - and still the answer is "no" as there are no crownwheels and pinions available... Fingers crossed you find a...

How to value a project ??

Good read. A couple of other point which occurred to me that I didn't see mentioned Breaking - as soon as a few parts are gone, a point of (almost) no return is reached. The hard to find bits go straight away, and alot of the remainder are left; no one wants them. So at that point its a pile of junk...

Straight 6 coupe for restoration

Maybe LYX 175D is chassis number 213, listed as white?

LYX175D is on the "unknown cars" page with lots of pictures.

I think 3k for a basket case like that is a bit OTT - am I wrong?!

Brilliant place - spotted this car which a quick internet stalk suggests is local to that area.
