My Jago V6 T bucket project.

Post by King Herald » Sat Oct 26, 2019 9:20 am

Engine and box is directly out of a Scimitar, so fair game for this forum I think. :D

I bought the car a couple of years ago, a 1985 Jago T bucket, ‘glass body, usual box section chassis, with Jago front tube axle. It’s been on the road for years with a four banger motor in but was being upgraded to the V6 when the owner realised he had too many projects on the go.

I think these are stock Scimitar stainless headers, supposed to be good for 10hp over a cast manifold.

Looks really cool.
Are tire covers mandatory in the uk as well? No mot without them?

Thanks

You don’t need fenders in the UK and they are not part of a MOT test

The rules are vague about mudguards/fenders, but I always fit them as I even a small puddle of muddy water gets thrown 30 feet in the air when you drive through it at 50 mph, and that’s not cool when you have no roof...... I’ve got some ribbed ‘glass mudguards ready to go on.

The only rule referring to mudguards is the prevention of spray in the C&U regs. Nothing in the MOT.
