Another New Member

Welcome :D

There’s a very active ownership base not far from you in the Solent area - in fact Hampshire is surprisingly heavily populated when it comes to Scimitars and Sabres..

IIRC it needs doing on his 5 and was done on his Coupe.
You’re probably right - I just remember him mentioning it recently regarding the 5.

SS1 roll cage

As a certain Mr. Crosby has managed to locate an unfitted cage, there might not be a "group buy" from P&P now. Does anyone possibly have a full 6 point cage they're not going to get round to fitting they are willing to part with before I enquire with P&P? Would consider a 4-point if the price is rig...

If you're not having rear seats at all though, I'd just chop the footwells out completely and as Jim says, fit a couple of crossmembers to mount them wherever you want. Then you can glass in a totally flat floor section.

SE5a YTY V8 project

They look like Alfa 147? If so, I fitted (welded) two pieces of 20mm steel conduit to the cut down framework and fitted them to the original runners on my 5a, with just the two (tilt) 1/4" bolt fixing at the front edge as the originals look to be plain 3/4" steel tube anyway.
