Replacing Mechanical Fan.

Just out of interest, if you've not seen the Engine Masters dyno test on a range of fans it's worth a watch. A manual metal fan cost 30bhp on a 400bhp engine...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXdLgaFXZzs

Scimitar in Scotland

Sad indeed...(was slight worried it might be my Edinburgh-based SE6A for a minute!) Where is it, and what's the colour? Gold or yellow, can't see through the muck....

Essex fuelling mystery (and breakdown)

Returning to this one, the same journey, the same garage, and nearly the same breakdown! Lots of dying, then catching, then dying, then catching, but it held on.

SE6A rolling resto - much AGRo

Sometimes it's the little things....
The driver's door lock button looked like it'd been chewed by a dog at some point. Turns out it's a TR7 /dolomite item and NOS is still available. One thing down..

Turns out from the order email I'd only ordered one, so quick as a flash I emailed them back to ask to add on the other one. Heard nothing, then a couple of days later got notice of impending delivery. :( Quick call a...

Power steering pipes
