the other has wiring loom going through it

Yes, two storage compartments under the carpet in the rear are standard - they would have held the toolkit (or valuables that you wanted to hide?), but people have adapted them for other uses; mounting an electric petrol pump is one popular one.

Coolant pooling on top of inlet manifold

Whether the manifold is water-cooled or water-heated is a bit of a moot point - many inlet manifolds have water running through them (my cvh in the SS1 does for example) and it provides a "hot spot" to evaporate the fuel better. There are a few places the water can come from - the hoses going to the...

GTC Electrical Diagram

I presume this is one of the diagrams that Peter Freeman did, and which are available to download on here?. If so, I think Peter (a long-standing Club member) deserves a credit for the time and hard work that he put into creating them, for the benefit of all. :D

wipers

Roger The Rialto one had been fitted with new brushes and was less than half price of a well used 16W motor, plus I had a spare 14W brush set left over from a previous car. Richard, with hindsight, I suspect my last post was ambiguous. I realise the Rialto motor was your best choice in the circumst...

Se6/6a used a 14W with a 130 deg gear, so I would have thought it would work equally well?

I understand Geoff Newcombe’s believed to be ex-HRH car doesn’t have any paper trail to confirm it - just some “unique” details such as a extra storage hatch in the rear side panels for a radio?
Yes, and far more leather detailing in the interior than any other Scimitar I've ever seen :D
