Corky's Scimitars (..and now an SS1 race car build)

Back to the rails. I wouldn't drop them all the way, just down to the "box" of the tunnel. I realise those north of 6ft might feel the need to go all the way down to lower sill level, but I found that too low for me (shy of 6ft) when used with a proper side mount shell seat. I've always used C secti...

ss1 roll over bar

To be fair S/H roll bars are rarely very good looking, the powdercoat dulls with time and is a bugger to get off if still stuck. The alternative is the rust has crept in which means the powdercoat flakes off easily, but then you'll struggle to get the glossy smooth finish when repainted or recoated!...

ss1 roll over bar

I'd avoid the two on eBay at the moment. Look very much like "Alleybars" ones. Not much in the way of fixing at the bottom. Would fold straight over in a roll.

Corky's Scimitars (..and now an SS1 race car build)

Trimmed grp, kevlar or carbon shell seats?

had to sell my Cobra Imola "S" seats earlier in the year as i had them down from the loft for the first time in years and found my a*rse didn't fit any more.
Great compact seats though and fit a treat.

SS1 "Axle" from Hoole to Sheffield or Reading

Offer much appreciated. We are 5 mins off of J31. Bits would break down into their assemblies. Diff, shafts and arms. Just line the boot with something to prevent muck getting on the wrong things.

Let me touch base with the seller and see how urgently he needs it shifted.

SS1 galvanised chassis's available?

To be fair the galv was very clean on the other side of the rust. :roll: IMGP5462.JPG Never assume anything with any car is the best bit of broad advice really. Say it time and time again, but there's more to an SS1 than the chassis, and a bit of rot ain't the be all and end all. Hand me an original...

SS1 "Axle" from Hoole to Sheffield or Reading

Before I land myself in hot water, can anyone help with collecting / storing / shifting an SS1 "rear end" i.e diff, shafts and arms, from Hoole near Chester (CH2 3LE) to either the new man-fort in Sheffield (S20), or Reading (RG10) ? As you can see, we have some alignment issues... 20171014_100900.j...

Doesn't look galv to me?
Yeah they do that. Ain't the grass always greener on the galva-side. :lol:

Definitely a galv car though. Chassis number 1120 as stated here

SS1 galvanised chassis's available?

Amazed this one is still available. Cheap for what it is. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RELIANT-SS1-C ... SwXY5ZXVRg

Still would rather the reward of restoring the original chassis if it's just sills and localised repairs.

I've always lusted after Highland Purple Reliants.

All power to you for persevering with such a damaged shell!

SS1 galvanised chassis's available?

Ed. Beaten To It by Jim. Location and demand drive the price. Anything really. A fair price would be 200 to 400. all SS1 chassis will carry the correct mountings for the CVH engine. but again i would draw your attention back to the fact you can't just swap a chassis from one car to another in the ey...

Ignore the nay sayers. Non galv chassis is not the end of the world.

Depends how sharp your MOT tester is.
Can't a small LED strip be stuck somewhere without the need to drill the bodywork?

Otherwise yes, perhaps a more modern option is better than the generic rectangles reliant fitted.
