SE5a for restoration - offers

Everything is relative, it is north of the central belt! :) I have picked up 2 cars from Bristol, one from Cambridge and one from Manchester and that is just the Scimitars! :roll: Okay, they drove home and were not on a trailer. I admire Josh's commitment, there has got to be a free Scimitar closer ...

Good GOL ly, Will - you kept that one quiet! I never knew you had a secret wreck of a 5a! All the best with the sale. It'd be nice to see it back in its full glory... Where's that groan emoticon! :lol: Yes, GOL is/was my first Scimitar and I ran it for 10 years before taking it off the road to conc...

Right, the time has come that I have to realise that I am not going to get round to restoring GOL 535L and neither do I really want to break it. This is despite the fact that I have always hung onto it using the excuse that I could use it for parts for my other 5a. I would prefer it to go to someone...

Rear lamps - OEM source?

This is the lamp as fitted to MB67. I can get the part number off the lens of MB14 if it helps?

Rear lamps - OEM source?

Chris, from what I know the lamp is a Hella as fitted to the VW T2Transporter, like this on eBay

Not sure if there is an early/late difference but the early cars like MB14 did not use the rear fog section but relied on the separate fogs below the rubber bumper as per the 6b.

2009 Scrappage Scheme Victims

Apologies if this is covered elsewhere but a quick search did not throw up a specific thread. After reading a bit in Autocar, I picked up on the FoI response to the list of cars that were part of the scrappage Scheme in 2009. This gives the numbers of Scimitars and other Reliants that formed part of...

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

The Western Isles Classic Car Club were en route to the Fraserburgh Rally tomorrow and stopped in Elgin, where I happened on some presumably visiting the motor museum. Some nice vehicles including a couple of Audi Quattros so I parked my A5 next to one to compare the cars 34 years apart. 20190601_13...

Middlebridge Tyres

I am running Vredestein Sportrac 5 at 91V on MB14. Good tyre, if slightly noisier on some surfaces than the previous Bridgestones but summer not all season. I would be inclined to go for the Uniroyals that Peter lists (have them on the 5a but not enough miles yet to fully test them) or my all season...

Stirling and District Classic Car Show 2019

There should be a presence at the Pre 67 Ford show at Lathalmond by Dunfermline on 1st September. Mark Amos (Midscotscim on here) usually organises so drop him a PM and ask him to put you on the mailing list. We usually meet up at Kelty beforehand and go in convoy. Hope to see you there?

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

BUG 1 - £17,800 in 2000
BUG 11 - £4,200 - 2004
BUG 111 - £2,800 - 2011 Probably less than the cost of a tyre for one of these cars!

Posted before but here's another BUG plate. not as appropriate as above (£13,000 in 1999)

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

I'd say you have cracked your anti vibration mount if you are getting that sort of clarity.

Good spot on the plate too, thanks for posting.
