SS1-C686CCR

Phil found them - I had no idea they made RS3 in 14”. A bit more expensive than 15s but with a 3.62 LSD and only 100 ish BHP, I think they’ll be better suited than 15s?

Heaven and Hell

Impossible to say without pics and description but take your purchase price as a starting point. It’s not a set of spares, it’s a car with a couple of challenges that has had a new battery and BMC fitted in the past 6 months or so. Start high, you can always go down but not up.

Do the Part numbers/ remarks column provide useful information?

Unfortunately it was only with he SE6 that Reliant started putting technical descriptions of bolts in the workshop manual - and the SE6 manual didn’t include engine and gearbox (because the dealer would already have an SE5 manual with that info).

Seat belts

there's a press stud on the side panel for the soft top that goes into the GRP body tub, so you either need to drill it out and replace later, or remove the inertia reel etc by carefully bending the side panel out of the way.

Unfortunately I only have the earlier SE4/SE5 type.
Are any of them in working order Jim?
The one in 8 ball works but not sure about the one from the coupe or my spare.

G130 YCF my first sprint car

Silhouette must remain, so I don’t see a problem with vents as long as there’s no huge scooby intakes on top?
