Advice for a respray SE5a

SE5a

SSG - Painting & body repairs

Hi Dave, I'm guessing you're still in business? If so, would you consider doing a few minor local repairs to my SE6a? For the most part the paint is really quite good. Not concours, but then, I use my Scimitar as a year-round daily, so I don't want concours anyway. However, there are a few bits tha...

Top quality mechanic

So, the wifes RAV4 D4D went sick...turned out to be injector issues. Anyway, to cut a long story short, 3 garages all failed to remove the full set, but the last one it left saw it missing really badly and conking out every few hundred yards due to a lack of fuel. Anyway, I parked it up at home in d...

Springs for Spax

I meant to measure and take pics, but forgot as usual....however, I have a 5a fitted with some old height adjustable spax, but the springs are ridiculously long and too hard. Even with the spring seat wound right down it doesn't look any lower than any standard car. What size and rating of springs w...

I'm after a clutch pipe from master to slave if anyone has one for a 5a?. Don't fancy shelling out for a braided one!
Thanks.
