Interesting indeed. I believe the seller may be a member on here?

Does anyone know anything about se5a TIL2921

Seems very one sided against him TBF, I don't think the comments have been against the current owner? They've been about the car. The current owner may sadly be an innocent victim, at the end of the chain, but their guilt or innocence has no bearing on the status of the car, which needs to be viewe...

I thought he sold the whole lot to JLR?
Yes that's what I thought too - it does say "on behalf of an important multinational client" - probably describes JLR reasonably well? Maybe there's a get-out clause on the original deal?

Scimitar 4x4 Prototype to be Auctioned

NTDWM (sadly) but it looks as though the Ferguson 4x4 prototype GTE is to be auctioned by Brightwells on March 21st. They say a further announcement will be made on Monday 19th

Whereabouts is Bill located, does anyone know? Given the weight it might be more sensible to collect in person if he's close to any of my usual trips.
He's in the Solent area.

Locking wheel nuts or centre cap?

This is a photo of Bill's cap, which I took at Curborough in 2007, while talking to him in the marquee about how he'd got hold of them. He said they were pleasant to deal with (he even gave me the name of the lady in Sales, to speak to). IIRC he said it took him a few phone calls to sort out, which ...

Locking wheel nuts or centre cap?

Bill Sims told me the saga of his long distance negotiations with Performance Wheels (the manufacturers in Australia, now defunct, AFAIK) to get some small caps to fit on the MB wheels on his GTC (now Peter Misy's). IIRC, Keith Painter used Dunlop centre caps on his?

Locking wheel nuts or centre cap?

I used a set of wolfrace centre caps. They are relatively inexpensive and easily available, and only need a small modification to fit. The hole on the MB wheels is a little smaller than the Wolfrace one, so when you push the cap through, it doesn't go right in. Simply scribe round the inside, and th...

I think the green car in this link is Neil's? - it does have gold centred wheels, but they're Minilite-type

Wheel nuts for Dunlop composite wheels

Oh dear........ :( I suppose a 4 + 1 split isn't as big a problem as it might have been, if you use the 4 small wheels as your normal wheels, and the odd one as the spare, then you need a set of nuts for the small ones, and most of the time the situation is just as normal. The only difference is tha...

Wheel nuts for Dunlop composite wheels

Yes, there are indeed, two sizes. There's a thread here in the technical archive which should reveal all the details I think? I can't see it would do any harm to enlarge the smaller holes, as long as you have nuts to fit? Might be worth just confirming that the wheels all share the same dimensions (...

How to remove a gearbox from a SE5a

I had a Cortina with a BW box, I had a Cortina with a C3 box, and now I have an Se6a with a C3. Each one has done a high mileage (over 100k miles in two cases). There's not a huge difference, but I've found the C3 a bit more responsive (probably due to the different method of modulating the gearchan...
