I think you might be thinking of the red room at Haynes, Sparkford?
Ah yes, that's the badger... :idea:

Found the pictures on Facebook and it reminded me of the very similar museum in Malta (that also has a 5a).
Indeed - I thought it was the same museum, when I saw that photo! It's part of a whole bunch of red cars in the Malta one, if I remember correctly?

Broken Boffin

All bumper parts are now present and correct, and the Spax coilovers are ready and waiting. The most pressing matter, however, is to sort the offside lower trunnion mounting bolt, which has started to knock again, after a temporary fix a year ago. So, the trunnion kit has arrived from QRG and I will...

Earliest se5a's

That is interesting... I, like Phil, had always believed the first 5a was on chassis 452501, and that mine was therefore SE5a number 50 (452550, registered 23/11/71). Not sure I'll sleep right tonight... :|

Scimitar model to put together?

I'm not sure if it's still available, but the Echoes model, designed by Barry Dickens, is excellent. Here's the one I made six years ago. If not, as Andy said, Dave Poole's calendar should do the trick.

Cheers, Jim. I think I'll have to just get the extra brackets and get stuck in!

Ah, OK... So I need to get hold of another 4 bolts as well as the 2 extra brackets?

Has anyone on here fitted the Harrington stainless bumper set to their 5 or 5a? Below are the fittings supplied by Graham Walker for the front and rear bumpers and over-riders.

Addition of head restraints to original GTE seats.....?

These are what my 5a used to have, during Steve Oakes' ownership. I'm not sure where he sourced them or where they ended up though.

Knock from Front Suspension

I had a similar irregular knocking coming from the offside front whenever I turned a corner. This time last year I had the exhaust downpipe repositioned to allow clearance at the chassis (it was much closer than on the nearside), Copperslip applied to the upper wishbone bush mounts, and the lower tr...

Good news on the MOT then, well done. Keep up the good work.
Thanks, Philip. It was the first one in two years, so the outcome was a big relief!

Tubular manifolds for a 5a

I'll PM you as soon as I get the chance. Yes, the front wing was damaged last August. All the mechanicals are now fine, and the cosmetics will be properly sorted once the car is being prepped for respray at the end of the year.

Tubular manifolds for a 5a

It's perhaps too late, Alan, but I'll be getting an entirely new exhaust system at the end of this month, so could perhaps offer you my current ones at that point. Hope you're enjoying Scimitar ownership - I lost track of where you were at in your GTE search after that meet-up almost two years ago. ...

An update on where things are at: 1. Shiny Wolfrace wheels are back on the car (after getting the tyre fitters to flip the two tyres which they had fitted back-to-front!). 2. Boffin passed her MOT yesterday with no advisories. 3. New springs and shocks will hopefully be fitted over the next few week...
