SE5 clutch identification

looks like the early clutch to me, I made the mistake of trying to get a cheaper replacement from suppliers that guaranteed a fit, but was wasting my time.
In the end I contacted QRG and got the correct one , yes it was about £200 but it all fitted perfectly.

SE5a sill repair sections

are you looking for the chassis sill parts or the body sill inserts, if it's the latter I had some stainless ones made up by a local co for about £25, it's a horribly messy job though.

there were 4 holes there not being used.
Are they not for the cross brace between the suspension uprights.

Oh yes not the ones in the chassis , I didn’t have the cross brace here , I’m talking about the holes just visible in the red paint near the servo

engine bay steel reinforcement

yes I made the body support plate myself from Stainless steel, the servo support bracket was already there I've just cleaned it up, I think the original would have been bolted to the side of the inner wing as there were 4 holes there not being used.

New purchase Se5

Gets a bit tiresome on long journeys though. Is the budget there for a new longlife (or similar) stainless system? They’ll make it as loud and deep as you want. Unfortunately not at the moment, I want new adjustable suspension first, then spray job , so minimal spend. Maybe I'll try something that ...

“Best” inductive heat gun, impact driver

I use the mains driven impact gun shown below from machinemart, its abit of an animal, nothing has defeated it yet £71. https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/clarke-cew1000-electric-impact-wrench/ I've got one of these and they are very powerful, it saved me hours when I was stripping down my Se5 , it's ...

8 Ball

I was camping in Spay Du Houssay, it's about 2 miles from Arnage village.
is that campsite next to the river ? I think we used to go there , very nice setting and you can walk across the bridge to get fresh croissants.
