I have inherited an SE5a -Yikes!

Hi CM, there's years of experience on here and we're all friendly. Scims aren't complicated and are surprisingly good, even in modern traffic. Yours has the added bonus of sentimental value too. Give it a go, see how you go then decide. There are a few owners in or near Wales if you get stuck. Best ...

Seatbelt gets wet

Jacking points

I use the cross tube welded to the rear of the plate under the radiator. My trolley jack head has notches which match. I go for the diff at the back but, as my car is lowered, I drive it onto 2" blocks first to get my jack under it.

Fuel pump/ lack of fuel

It takes about a full ten seconds to get fuel to the float chambers when mine has been standing for over a couple of days. Modern fuel seems to evaporate so much faster now.

Lookin' good.
What layers of paint, rust-proofing etc have you applied?
Whatever I do, it seems to go rusty again easily, so any guidance is appreciated.
I hand wire brushed, Kurust, red oxide then a cheap gloss. It ain't going out o' garage much, just sunny cruisin' days.

551 A race oddity

Alright, I admit it, yer got me mystified. I thought it prudent t' streamline fer less air resistance an' aerolift at front. What's gooin' on wi' brick wall? Or is this a complete rouse an' you'll turn up wi' a nose as sharp as paint?
