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...

I know there are a couple of yellow se6 locally and white GTC. Last thing I expected to see parked up on the prom an...

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...

Brake fluid tester recommendation wanted

This is quite easy if you can't see any change in colour, and assuming you've got a rubbish £4 tester off eBay ( :lol: ) because you don't actually need to know what the water content is, you just need to know when the water content is 'as new' or 'still old stuff', pass or fail. So, if you're chan...

Brake fluid tester recommendation wanted

It’s only garages that need a Brake Fluid Tester . They need it to prove to the customer that the fluid needs changing . Customers need proof . Once the customer is happy it’s a win win situation for the garage . Garages know fluid need changing every two years but as I say the Tester is just a sel...

A clear tester with 3 lights. A red, amber and green. Its sold under the neilsen brand. No matter what flui...

I've never come across a mondeo with callipers like that either.
Messed with enough of the things over the years too.

Road Tax Help

Went through the above at my local post office.
First member of staff didn't have a lot of idea but manager soon pointed her in the right direction.
Receipt issued for the 12 months free tax and new v5 dropped through door just over 3 weeks later.
