Automatic box removal?..

Silly question here!...

....When the autobox is removed from the car does it come away with the selector lever or does that remain in the car and is disconnected at the gearbox? :?

Daily Driver

Looks nice!...Auto as well, which from my experience make it a much more relaxed daily driver! Wheels look a bit too modern and an older style deeper dish wheel would probably be more in keeping. Seeing those nicely painted rocker covers reminds me that I must get mine refurbished to match my repain...

I do tend...

My se6 had a Mann air filter in the housing and I just sourced the same item from eBay for less than £10, as it seemed to fit fine!

Replacement heater....

You should be so lucky only breathing in rust and foam, today I got to clearing out my matrix.....wondered where the rat that was eating through the wiring had gone! I should be taking photos but afraid that nobody else will sit in the car once done. I bought a low mileage RX8 to run around in unti...

Keep showing us pictures like that and you may have people queuing up! :D
I've had enough restoring this one!😁

It will just be nice to know that I won't be breathing in decayed foam and rust when I put the fan on!😎

Heater now partially apart, although I still need to drill out several rivets to remove the heater flaps, having already removed loads of rusty screws!...

Cooling Fan

Just bought the fan kit at Scimfest from Walkers which comes with proper mounting brackets. Fitted the new fan now and it is a much neater installation with close fitting brackets, rather than the previous fan which seemed to blow air around the radiator rather than through!
