Must be Glenfarclas distillery - our MB will soon be up to bed along with or other Scims as we are flying south for some sun.

removing windows

I find it easier to push front bottom while lifting the rubber inside - as flat hat says they come out easily ( and go back in quite easily as well ) Be careful they don't fall on the ground and break - handy if you have someone to make sure they don't drop the first time to remove one.

Which colour looks best?

If you change the colour completely eg green to blue you will have to send you reg doc away to be modified. Our Coupe is gold - a horrible yellow gold originally but I am going to do it platinum gold which is more silver than gold but I don't have to have the reg doc amended.

reverse sensors

Fitted them to my GTC when I had it, the Coupe and the MB - the GTC fit was easy as they fitted between the lower inner corners of the rear lights and the bumper, with the Coupe fitted them in the reflectors. You may be able to get them in the same place as I did with the GTC

Ford's SS1

Not the time of year to be working on a car outdoors - although it did not bother me when I was young(er). It looks like its all there and just needs putting back together - keep the pictures coming.

Brake servo which one

I thought that it was illegal to remove a servo when one was fitted originally - I might have misheard the law though.

Brake servo which one

If you have the Girling part number or someone can remember what else uses the same servo ( I cannot for the moment ) you can pick the one you need from this list.

Scimitar 1800ti cam belt

Just had a thought there are to types of alt fitted, one with a flat belt and one with a V belt - that may make a difference

Scimitar 1800ti cam belt

PS to remove the alt pully bolt put a socket on it then hit the socket tommy bar with a hammer - it should come loose straight away

Scimitar 1800ti cam belt

Got my cam belt past the alt belt pulley when I had removed the alt belt - perhaps I was lucky

In the original message the belt was to be changed - no mention of the pulley being changed

Scimitar 1800ti cam belt

No none of the gears need to be removed - once you have slackened off the tensioner ( marked in red ) the belt just slides off.
