Ex Speedy se5a

slapped a big wedge on it and is selling it on, Well to be pedantic, he's *offering* to sell it on, at an asking price that he may well not realise given the comments in this thread :wink: As we've discussed before some years ago, while 'fast buck' sellers like this may leave a nasty taste in the m...

Dash cams.....

I've been using a Winycam 300HD on the front, bought new, and a Cobra CDR820E (off eBay) on the back of my daily driver for about 5 years now. It was only when moving them to another car and checking they were recording properly in the new vehicle that I noticed the Winycam was showing a date and ti...

Lots of GTCs with GTC numbers
AIUI it's not the "GTC" that's so much significant as the number 381. Are there others bearing the build number of the car on the plate? This is the only one I can recall having heard about.

For Sale - 1983 GTC Auto with LPG Conversion (Previously Owed by Bill Sims)

Whilst this immaculate car is in the public eye, as it were, can anyone tell me how it came by its registration? I recall mention of this in Slice a while ago, and its pertinence is well known. But it's not a plate to which a personal plates dealer would attach special significance, and I doubt that...

Gtc respray

If you read round a lot of Scimitar literature, web sites and so on, you'll find a number of places that seem to have a good reputation for Scimitar resprays. Apart from the two already mentioned I can think of Spa Garage in Leamington, Barry Herber in Norfolk, and Avon Classic Cars in Weston-Super-...

Not exactly the model you might be looking for, but certainly in the "very good" category, MB43 is currently available. http://www.middlebridge-scimitar.co.uk/ ... .php?id=48

Astonished

Over the years I have bought various kinds of alloy wheel cleaners most of which left the alloy dull. Today I thought I would try something different so used Astonish oven cleaner - used the sponge part of the applicator not the abrasive side and its done the job and seems to have left the shine on...

Alpine stereo

I wish to thank David Tew for his suggestion of a fully solid state head unit, and I'm happy to say MB61 has, perhaps with the exception of the EFI, at last entered the digital age, with an Alpine UTE-200BT which I obtained from Car Audio Centre for the very reasonable price imho of £84. When used u...

MW/LW radio

Mike, I presently have this Philips up for grabs, and I will be coming along the M4 TOMORROW Wednesday 18th en route to south Wales, so an easy detour to you if you're interested in it. The radio works, but I have not tried the cassette player so cannot guarantee it. I'm not asking any money, and as...

Henrik, the people to speak to regarding all things Reliant like this are probably Elvis Payne and Mark Cropper.

MW/LW radio

The radio in my Se4 doesn't work so I want to replace it. I don't want a modern version, It would help to know what your original radio is. If it too is "MW/LW" then don't you already know what stations you can receive? And if it's more recent than that, why do you want to replace with something ol...

Alpine stereo

Actually, I hadn't really thought at all about a mechless unit, but now you've put the idea into my head... I've found a number of Alpine units that are of particular interest, not just because of their size, but because - as I read it - they will play FLAC files straight from a USB stick - no need ...

Most modern head units will fit well. Thanks for that Andy. I've been getting rid of all the wiring this afternoon and trial fitted a very neat little Goodmans unit I've had for some years, 160mm deep fitting, and it slides in a treat. Seems I've been worrying about nothing. In view of Mick's remar...

Not starting a new thread in interests of keeping subject matter together, so.. I wish to know if there is a preferred replacement item for the original MB radio head unit. I don't have anything original, and the Philips 562 radio cassette that came with the car is obsolete and has decidedly iffy sp...
