You can get them in various colours if you fancy something different. :wink:

Almost ready for paint!

Thanks Terry.

Yours is the second recommendation of Rich I've received and he's not too far away so it could be a good option. I'll contact him and enquire about timescales etc.

:D

Almost ready for paint!

Arrival.jpg Well, the Coupe is now back with me. In 2K primer at the moment so I have two options: 1. find someone who's willing to just put the final coats on, 2. resurrect my (very rusty) paint-spraying skills. I have received a couple of paint-shop recommendations already so I'll investigate tho...

Yes It 'll be interested. A friend give me a mountney ford boss. Does it fit on SE5?
I think you'll need a Triumph boss, I certainly did on my Coupe. Mountney bosses aren't expensive though. :)

Raymond Mays Leaflet

Interested in the anecdote about Don Pither, as that almost certainly was the Mays Head he fitted to my Sabre Six, 232 GUE - although I think at that point it still bore its original registration BRP187B. I knew Don had bought a Mays Zephyr and swapped the heads over, but I've never heard the detai...

Raymond Mays Leaflet

That's really interesting. I love the period ad-speak such as "bounding exuberance". I remember Don Pither turning up one day with a customised MK2 Ford Zephyr (jacked up rear, wide back wheels, skinny fronts, graphic flame repaint) that he bought purely for the Mays head that was fitted. The bloke ...

Silly Question.

Hi Mark,

I asked myself the same question a while ago and then I found this:

Of 15 V5’s, only one is registered on 1 Aug (1985 SS1) :D

Jim, you probably have one for every month of the year, with a few spares!

Happy Birthday to my Coupe (even though it looks sad!).

I've just realised that my Coupe is 50 years-old today! (well, it was registered 50 years ago). Mind you, as the 1st August was the new registration start date in the 1968 I expect quite a few other Scimitars also have their birthday today. I can't give it a friendly pat or anything like that as it ...

🙂 It never hurts to experiment!

I'm not besotted with originality, as you can see from my signature.😉

Tail Lights.

To keep with the theme, Hillman Imp lights are identical but cheaper. :D

Is it better to swap the tail-light and indicator around?

Tail Lights.

The originals are rare, expensive and of uncertain origin but, to be fair to Ian, the ones he mentioned (probably a Chinese variation) seem a reasonable replacement and are available in Australia for $29.78 including postage: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Set-of-2-Rear-Tail-Lights-Stop-Lamps-for-Relia...

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

Hi Stephenl,
I had completely re-bushed the linkage, including that one, before Ben collected the gearbox.
However, the bush I fitted did look a little different to the one you have though so it will be interesting to see what Ben finds. 😉
