Corky's Scimitars

That picture confused the hell out of me Jim. Then I realised I was looking at the top of the NS b pillar. I have a set of cage feet you can borrow as patterns or I can measure up. The original run was a captive plate and seperate sides. The second run was as Jim says a folded section turning back d...

Error code 21 and power transistor

As for the comments on hair, some of us have grown more head protection than others!

Magnificent eh? I like that.

Error code 21 and power transistor

On a Nissan the PTU earths via the bracket to the body, nice big reliable contact area. On the SS1 it is all done by a piddly wire and ring terminal. By all means clean it up, but no harm in doubling up.

For a quick test just stick a jump lead from ground to coil bracket.

Rule number one (in my book) of resolving running faults on the 1800ti. Run a second earth to the coil.

Front calipers pistons

I have an air gun with a brake hose screwed on the end. 150psi usually shifts all but the most stuck pistons. It is essential though that you retain the pistons or keep them captive though as effectively you have four deadly projectiles trying to make a break for freedom. Of course removing then hyd...

Front spring rubbing on bumpstop turret.

That's a lovely bright yellow garage entrance. Can't tell if it's sloping though.

Uprated doesn't have to mean lowered if that is your concern...

V6 Custom Exhaust Headers ?

Look at handrail weld elbows. Cheap as chips, easily worked and indestructible. Bit heavy and no choice of bend radius though.

Moss - SuperPro front suspension bushes £39.72

Because marketing!

It's assumed that poly must be best because it's shiny and glossy and bright colours and everyone fits them.

Yet the material properties of good quality rubber lend themselves to bushings in most applications much better than polyurethane.

Fantasy Reliant Museum

I was watching homes under the hammer the other day. There was a derelict mill building comprising multiple floors with several thousand sq foot of space, located in Staffordshire and sold for 50k. That would have suited the purpose. Has to be somewhere close to Tamworth. Can't have a Reliant museum...

Ben's SS1 - SSF novice sprint car

Don't heat the chassis excessively or you will have a bolt fused into the chassis by molten zinc! If it really is stuck then first thing, inner wing and brake lines out the way. 3/4 drive breaker bar in the bolt head and see what happens with the bolt. May as well shear it off somewhere! Various tip...

NEW MEMBER... Scimitar ish pick up.

There's enough GTEs festering in fields and plenty of owners with more projects than time (myself included) so I say all power to your dad, that looks very well finished and I love the nod to its roots proudly displayed on the tail gate.
