1976 SE6 restoration in Belgium

I learned that I have a “pink body” This and Girling 3-pot calipers, red reflectors on the rear bumper and 3 stripes on the bumper. All together mean I have a SE6. The chassis number 1162 means 162nd car off the SE6 line I believe. I got the car to the garage in the next town in mid December. Nothin...

1976 SE6 restoration in Belgium

Hi Guys - I finally got to typing up some notes on the SE6 I'm working on over in Belgium: I had a Scimitar shaped hole in my life... I rebuilt my TR7 about 15 years ago and have renovated the house and done a lot of RC plane stuff, but having turned 50 this year I needed another project for my “mid...

SE6 Heater box

Hi - Thanks for the answers... I'm looking for the Distribution box under the heater and the vents. My matrix is in good condition I guess the vents will restrict the flow even more after the tortuous path from the fans up through the wings and round the heater box, but dont they tidy up the edges o...

SE6 Heater box

Hi - As I dig deeper into the hidden depths of my SE6 - I find I'm missing some parts on the heater....notably the Air distribution box PN 24448 & the Vents 24377 & 24377

Anybody got a heater kicking around and could salvage and sell me the distribution box & vents ?

6a lower wishbones - what have I done wrong!?

Ouf - that's a relief. Access to the nuts on the back of the front brackets is not so easy, hiding under the rack.
Thanks

6a lower wishbones - what have I done wrong!?

Can anybody explain why a PAS car has the spacers (211607) between the damper bracket and the wishbone, and a non PAS car doesn't?

Hello from Belgium

LOL yes the bonnet shuts properly.

The wheels have been changed to Wolfrace ones since then too, the PO gave me me those wheel trims with the car.

Now delving deeper into the car...I'm finding a long list of jobs to do, including some chassis corrosion in outriggers and roll hoop attachments.
