SE6b #5623

Yep, two sideways pics, one of the rear (missing boot lock) and one from the side. It’s crystal green and reg was XCP652Y (there’s a few XCP65_Y on record).

Description was something like “SORN on drive, needs brakes refitting.”

Coolant hose for use with "Rew Pot"

I’m not sure why your metal top pipe has been cut down - IIRC you just take a slice from the standard top rubber pipe and it fits as per OEM.

Coolant hose for use with "Rew Pot"

Lots of nice stuff this weekend driving to Milton Keynes and back - red Bond Equipe on the A40, AM V8 Vantage on the A34 and a bright yellow Lancia Montecarlo close to home this afternoon stood out - but this at the pub by the canal was just gorgeous
