SE5a rear axle and parts for sale

Hi, not as regular on the forum as I should be - wondered if the tubular manifolds are still available? - and whether you had any watts linkage arms with that axle as I'm having a battle to change the bushings on my 5a''s ones.

Thanks alot

Pete (also Woking area! )

Brooklands New Year's Day Meeting 2020

To complete the set at Brooklands here's a couple of shots of the Red GTC and "BBY". A great turnout of Scimitars and Sabre's. Just need to get on with my 5a and bring it along - didnt spot a single 5 or 5a there this year.

Re: Se5 door window fastenings

OK interesting - I've heard mention of Rover SD1 too - I've got wind up rather than electric windows so may be different again. Like you say if the XJS S1 may be a different challenge to find :) you would think there would be some form of standard window channel holder with a slot in it to connect t...

Re: The SE5a learning curve! - Boot lock removal

Yes, Pin is at the other end of the shaft to the photo you've circled (it holds the cam that activates the lock mechanism on at the other end) . Mine wouldnt come out - had to drill it out in the end which wasnt the best as I now have more of a c shape cut out in the shaft itself rather than a hole ...

Never quite been able to find out. mine originally Shetland Blue - not sure if that's your colour? Gives me some idea of what mine may look like when b...

Re: Speedys SSG paint thread

I do like the colour - will look better again once its built up. Proper 70's colour :) Really pleased with how well it has turned out - looking forward to getting it back next week. Another great job from the look of things Dave! After deciding against the Lime Green it was a choice between Ford Ol...
