Scimitar values in 2020

I measure the value of both the SS1 and GTC by the fun and enjoyment driving them. I only have a rough idea on what was spent on the SS1. It is the money spent on the GTC that is frightening. I have all the receipts and it is scary. I didnt envisage spending that amount when I started the work on it...

Stainless Steel Window Frames

I spoke to someone at Curborough last year who had made some SS frames himself in his garage. The one he showed me looked good and he said he was going to talk to Graham Walker and Nigel. Whether he did or not I have no idea. It might be worth trying them.

By all means use Coverdale but only to buy it off the roll. I would suggest you don’t get them to cut it to their pattern first though.
Wise words Phil. My set were an appalling fit.

Ians GTC rebuild. And now with MOT and a few more horses

So, just when you think about getting out on the open road, a kick in the teeth. Started getting problems with the engine stalling at low revs when it was put into gear ( forward and reverse). Fine once it got going gear change quite smooth and the kickdown working. After the usual suspects were eli...

After hours of rubbing down the results look good. What looks even better is the money Ive managed to keep in my bank account! Hoped to get a better shine,but I didnt realise how deep the damage was .Now they look better with the new centres on the car.

Really

Found this from the same seller. It is very tempting to ring and ask if he can fit it too.

Started a job I had been putting off for a long time now (years in fact)....polishing badly pitted wheels, ably helped by Barbara. A previous owner had allowed water to get under the laquer and just left it. We cleaned off all the laquer when we first got the car and gave them a token polish. But no...
