Cologne starter no use to me Chris, I have at least 3 good used, and at least 2 Unused Reconditioned.

It may be of use to someone else on here.

Have you sorted the window wiper sales yet?.

"I thought I'd just put the brakes together and drive it"...

Christian I can make most of the nuts for most of the wheels.
I have sizes for both types of Dunlop, but no sizes for PA.

My Stainless is all "Marine grade 316, including collars if required.

The last alternator I purchased was £80 delivered.

Power steering rack SE6b

I always ship mine in a wooden box. AND I never request the pipes to be left on for the very reason you mention Joe. Also, if I get a rack with pipes fitted and the unions snap off, or the pipes are corroded or damaged the owner cannot blame me and complain when I have to charge for new pipes. IF th...

Scimitar 4x4 Prototype to be Auctioned

P.S, The MoT history doesn't look too clever, but I'm sure you'll have seen that already!

Nothing to worry about there.

Just trying to register on line to bid, but the bloody system won`t let me.
Will have to ring them.

Ok Chris
If you bolt it inside a box allow for the Bulge under the pinion housing otherwise when you bolt it down the box may split.

If you go ahead I would organise the pickup ?.

Power steering rack SE6b

ok will post it today LOL.
Last one of the NOS I have.
Do you want me to get a price on shipping an empty box out to you for the rack?
It`s worth £50 to me for a spares unit, but a lot more to someone who wants an exchange unit.

"I thought I'd just put the brakes together and drive it"...

The alternators that I choose have a direct 14V take off and only need 1 extra wire direct to the +v on the battery, they self regulate to produce this voltage at tickover as canal boat engines do not rev very highly, they also supply up to 80A at full revs.

The whole body from the A post forward is longer than standard, so John C must have had a bodyshell modified at Reliant to fit?
Are you sure Jim??
Doesn't look any different to me, in fact if the front duct work is not fitted like the "normal" car then there is no reason for a longer body??.

I would have just swapped the alternator for a higher output Brand New unit from a canal boat.

I can supply SS wheel nuts IF you still want and need them if Bill is not interested?.

Scimitar 4x4 Prototype to be Auctioned

There is no getting away from the fact that this car IS A SCIMITAR. Just as my previously owned GTE converted GTC with a Chevy engine fitted is. At least this car was assembled, presumably, at Tamworth using a Reliant chassis and body. This car has a right to be used as a Scimitar and I don`t person...
