SE5a bonnet hinges.

Bent mine last year when my bonnet opened at speed. Looking for a matching pair to replace the ones I have.

Cheers

SE5A Project - Swindon

Just a two part epoxy. Araldite. Still toying with idea of de-badging it, for the simple look. But filling the holes and painting it is holding me back currently. Put new black vinyl on the B-Posts as well, used a Evostik contact adhesive for that, but did not remove the rear windows, just pushed th...

The letters are glued back on now. The removal of the old lamps were quite traumatic, so there was the odd bit of collateral damage....

Lockheed style servo modification

I had to do this mod on mine. The brakes were momentarily sticking on, after being pressed, I believe. It was a few years ago, the car had no servo when I bought it.

Dashboard Inspirations ?

Andy, I am trying to decide of which material I am going to make the main panel out of. I was thinking of marine Ply, but there is a bend in it, so I am thinking of scoring the back to bend it and then to glass the back to hold the angle. I need to insert a small fillet next to vents also. Alloy mig...

Dashboard Inspirations ?

I am doing a similar thing, slow time, after having see Mikey's dash. I used some Halfords textured paint, but the sand colour is too bright for my tan interior. I will have to darken it a bit. I might go for a wood finish to the flat panel.

Following a trendsetter.

Leaking coolant

2 pence piece and chemical metal might get you out of a bind in the short term.

However, if one has gone then the rest will be soon to follow.

Some of them can only be accessed with the engine out.

Time to start planning?

Sorry

SE5A Project - Swindon

WP_20190217_12_13_39_Pro.jpg Not much has happened with this Scimitar this winter. I have replaced the rear lights and sorted out the mess that was the wiring in the rear. Old tow hook wiring with lots of 'professional' blue chock blocks, etc. It's certainly simpler back there. This is the first it...

SE5A Project - Swindon

It's been a quiet winter on the Scimitar front, but a few jobs were completed today ready for the new season. Today was new track rod ends (MOT) and a new starter motor. All three jobs fought me, but we got there in the end. Thanks to Jim. And new rear lights. They work, but this might not be perman...

Alloy Timing Wheel fitted

For the noise issue, if indeed it is an issue: Are you using a manual fuel pump? If you are, then the pump lever might be touching the back of the timing wheel. I had this issue on mine as the pump had a lever was a folder over steel assembly and was too wide. It was an awful racket though, and obvi...

Brake servo

Having said that, my car, a 5a, was bought with an MOT, but no servo. It has one now though and is the better for it.

Exhaust manifold fittings

I tried to use studs and nuts recently, when I had my engine out if my 5a. I could not get my tubular manifolds onto the engine due to clearance issues. So I went back to bolts to secure the manifolds to the engine.
