New to the RSSOC - SE6A Plymouth--

Welcome Ian. I'm in Plymouth too and I went through the same process that you're going through now with my SE5 a few years ago. (SAR restoration somewhere in the project thread on here). The South Devon noggin meets on the fourth Thursday of the month at The welcome Stranger in Bickington. There's u...

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

Lovely red TR4 (would it be an “A” on a B reg?) on the A53 this afternoon, roof down. Unlike most of the Audi convertibles I saw :roll:
Not an 'A' Phil. B Reg would be 1964, TR4As came in in 1966. I had an early one which was a D Reg. Would love to find that again

I've been with the RAC for 25 years. Renewal this year £156 up from £122 last year. Rang to say I'm leaving, immediately reduced ...

SE5 driver's door lock

Brian, thanks very much for trying, much appreciated, but it looks as if Phil has the right one.
Phil, that looks like the one :hurrah: I'll pm my address to you and catch up maybe at Curbs or even Silverstone?
Thanks a million :D

I'll pm my address directly Phew, what a relief :lol: Er, actually unless the photograph has flipped the picture I think that’s the wrong side! I think they are hand...

SE5 driver's door lock

Thanks :D Failing finding a replacement lock from a 5, perhaps someone knows where there is a 5 rotting away somewhere, or perhaps someone knows from which other car Reliant sourced the lock. Although I realise the chances of finding a lock from that source are even more remote. At the moment I'm lo...

SE5 driver's door lock

I've recently had a little difficulty in closing the driver's door on SAR as it wasn't closing with that reassuring click. Investigating I've discovered that the flat coil spring that gives the springiness :roll: to the latch is broken. Here's a pic IMG_1191.JPG IMG_1192.JPG I suppose the chances of...

Did you notice the white adhesive insulation under the baseplate? Can't see that under yours unles it's a different colour. It is essential

Joe's 1972 GTE - Post Paint Refitting

Joe, I fitted a Dolomite Sprint splinter to my 5.(SAR). You'll find a description on my rebuild thread somewhere. You have to gently heat the ends in order to bend them up to fit the bodywork. A hot hairdryer or similar is probably sufficient.

beige 'barn find' Scimitar in Luton

DVLA won't issue a V5C(W) for vehicles that have been off the road and a new keeper is applying for the original reg (regardless of the age) without a valid MOT. Don't underestimate the effort to obtain a v5... £25 plus a one page application does not cut it any more. Jim is right, technically you ...

359 JUA Green Sabre

Geoff, what a very nice and very interesting car. Almost makes me pine for another project......I said almost :lol: Always liked the early Sabres though and would have loved to have one. Best of luck with the remaining restoration including that of yourself :lol:
