What's the car in front? Gilbern?
Yes, probably a MK1 Invader but could be a very late Genie.

Does RRF 186G still exisit?

I was thumbing through some old magazines when I came across the following photo. Does the car still exist?

New purchase Se5

Mine were just the same. There were no visible signs of their demise so I do wonder how many cars are out there with the same problem. The way I fitted the new stainless sill reinforcment to my Coupe was to create a roll of fibreglass mat and stick that into the void. The new sill can then be presse...

New purchase Se5

..... just got to replace the dreaded sill reinforcements, having them made in stainless, but not looking forward to fibre glassing them back in As 1969SE5 says, it's not too bad a job - messy yes, difficult no! When you use stainless remember to roughen it with at least 80-grade abrasive (I used a...

Brand new front bumpers for SE5 - NOW SOLD

I have offered to sell these on behalf of a friend. A pair of brand new (not rechromed) SE5 front bumpers. They originally came from Don Pither's stock and have been dry stored since Don sold-up. Don got them from London Plating who used to supply Reliant. They're still in the original wrapping. The...

KJX935G The Re-Birth......Back from painting !!!

That looks really good, the colour is stunning! :D

I was thinking about doing something similar with the headlights, I'm not really sure why Lucas only specced dip on the outers!

how lucky we are...

Hear, hear! The vast bank of technical knowledge so freely given is a real benefit. I'm on another car forum which is full of people bent on one-upmanship with the only technical advice being to "take it to the dealer". It's so clinical it's boring! There are, of course, some people who don't apprec...

Modified top suspension mounts for Coupe. SOLD

Now that my Coupe rebuild is nearing the end I've been clearing out all my surplus bits and pieces and have come across these stainless brackets. I bought them from Don Pither just before I started the rebuild (shows how long it's been going on! :oops: ) as, having decided to fit a 4HA axle, I wante...

KJX935G The Re-Birth......continues

Fantastic! Great colour and great finish. Well done.

Fitting up will be the fun part and you'll be surprised how quickly you empty those boxes of bits cluttering your garage. :wink:

I'm very envious as I won't get my Coupe back until the middle/end of May ..... can't wait (but I'll have to!).

:D

Which colour looks best?

It's certainly green! :)

Actually, when it's on the car it does seem to have the slightly silvery finish of the previous Leaf Green. I look forward to seeing pictures as the job progresses.

Almost ready for paint (really!).

I know the feeling. 😕 I, too, had a problem with rusted sill strengthening. To fix it I cut the sill panel out from underneath the car and replaced the plates with some I had made in stainless. Quite cheap to get done as they don't need to be a great finish. I scored them across all surfaces with an...
