Irish Se6 restoration.

Very little progress this summer, but did manage to source a donor car for beer money. Will hopefully be starting again shortly and I'm looking for ideas on bumper looks/finishes. I quite like the 'no rubber' version, but I will fit the SS finishers with some sort of rubber edging to fill the gap, a...

SE6 Lockheed dual circuit brakes master

Past Parts rebuilt my Girling dual circuit servo mounted MC, not cheap (but still cheaper than 200 notes) and it's correct for the car.

Cooling Fan

Plenty of choice, can't remember where I got mine, I think it's 13 or 14 inches. Bought a metre of 25mm light alloy angle and cut and bent to suit, couple of bolts to hold the fan onto the brackets and then self tappers to hold the brackets onto the top and bottom rails of the rad. And voila: DSC_00...

Justin is that an Se5 seat in the drivers side?

Refitted the body last week and connected up enough things to get the car moving again (handbrake only) and drove it out into the sunlight, joy!!! Not without incident, apart from figuring out how everything went back together, new Facet fuel pump took a minute or so (felt like ages!) to fill the ca...

Finally getting to bolt/rivet some parts back on and I have a couple of questions (first of many I imagine :) ) The PO filled in the wiper spindle holes, do drilling them out again require any special attention or are they just plain ordinary bog standard perpendicular round holes!?

Finally have the body back and I am now ready to start rebuilding. Just got the engine bay and arches painted (stone chip under the colour), reckon it would have taken about 4 years to get the whole car done :lol:
