nice period radio upgrade

A little update to these Chinese radios. I've had one fitted to my other halves Peugeot that's worked faultlessly quite some time now. On my recommendation a few other people I know have bought them. There are quite a few different styles of radio all with the same functions, remote and display type...

More bad luck for my Scimitar

After speaking to the local pcso its looking like Jim & Roger are correct as there has been a spate of break-ins to sheds and cars on the estate where I live over the last few days. The PSCO was telling me this morning that the list of things stolen range from tools, bikes and even frozen food. I gu...

More bad luck for my Scimitar

Over the few weeks the scimitar has been sat outside in the yard so I could get a few things done in garage before I put the scimitar in there and try and sort out the starting/running issues along with the gearbox leak. The lock on the drivers door of the scimitar can be opened with anything that w...

New Scimitar Book Published today!

I ordered a copy from wordery via ebay & got refunded a few days later saying no longer available.

Luckily managed to order a copy from Amazon for £14.95 via the seller Book Depository.

Only had a quick look through it as of yet till I get more time to sit down and have a read.

Air/fuel ratio; lambda wide or small range?

Most lambda sensors fitted to production cars are narrow band (small band) & don't give proper readings with most air/fuel gauges in my experience. There are some gauges sold that will work with a narrow band lambda sensor but they typically give very basic information (Rich, stoic, and lean) & can ...

New younger member

Welcome Jack. I was attracted to scimitars at a very early age due to sitting in a GTE while my mum and dad were getting parts for my mums regal/robin. Got my first scimitar when I was in my late teens, it didn't see the road for a few years though. I turned 50 a few years back and have my current s...

Scimitars around the £1000 mark

When I was looking for my current se6 I looked at more than a few ebay listings amongst other things. The better cars on ebay seem to sell long before the listing ends mostly. Of the cars I communicated with the sellers about it quickly became apparent that one persons opinion of condition and worth...

That could be because it is a Tempo Hanseat 8) Well done, how on earth did you get it? That comes from having parents who both had a thing for 3 wheeled vehicles. I cant complain though as the first time I sat in a scimitar was at a reliant dealers, think I was under 10 at the time, while my dad wa...

Tail Lights.

My SE6 had the trailer lights type fitted when I bought it. They hadn't aged too well and were already showing signs of uv damage and cracking. I have bought another set for when they become too bad as a easy fix for the time being but do plan something a little more long lasting for the future. I t...

Front Side Window Seals

This is a job I have to do on both doors at some point. The old seals are hard & brittle.

How many turns...

I have have a trakrite which I have used on all our our cars for many years - may seem to be expensive at first glance but worth every penny when you consider how much it cost to get your tracking done at a garage. Easy to use as well - first saw it on tomorrows world if you are old enough to remem...

Heaven and Hell

Great to hear that you have finally found the car for you Stu. A lot of the local parts places to me have the same attitude. I tend to research their part numbers for stuff so it saves any problems. I got my se6 battery from ecp as it was the cheapest with longest warranty I could find on the net. I...
