MOT changes

I renewed my car insurance online last Sunday evening and went to the Post Office to tax it for free and confirm it's MOT exemption on Monday morning. The database was still showing that it was uninsured on Monday, but I got my car tax for free, no problem!...Just received my new logbook today, conf...

SE6a Door Windows Seals

I bought my outer weather strips from Woolies Trim by the metre and they were the same depth as the old ones! https://www.woolies-trim.co.uk/product/1259/window-weatherstrip I just cut them to length and offered the seals up to the holes left by the removed rivets and marked them with a biro for pil...

SE6a Door Windows

If you cut the old outer seal off with a sharp knife, you can remove the stainless trim to drill out the rivets. I riveted mine back on but in retrospect would probably use No Nails or similar next time, as it's a pig to get the stainless trims back on underneath the weather seal! These are the "riv...

Gearbox quandary!....

Before I put the Scimitar up for sale again I'm going to try the Land Rover V8 slave cylinder route!

I've been driving a Saab Convertible 6 speed manual for the last 2 weeks and the clutch and steering are so light compared to the GTE!

1980 SE6A 3.0 Automatic

Door seals are available from the traders such as Graham Walkers.

I have replaced the door aperture rubbers, window channel easyglide material and also the weather strips at the base of the window glass.

I bought the weather strips from Woolie's web site if I recall!

Cheers

Scimitar GTE SE6a Manual Overdrive....

The manual steering is only heavy at parking speeds and does lighten up once on the move, although as said it does have the turning circle of an oil tanker! :lol:

Cologne engine 'running on'

My SE6a will run on sometimes when switching off, but it only seems to happen on regular unleaded, on super unleaded it doesn't do it!
