Heaven and Hell

Stu after the time it took you to find your scimitar its sad to see your last post. :o I do know how you feel though. :cry: My scimitar is still sat outside in the garage with no forward progress. :? I was considering throwing in the towel with my scimitar after it was broken into and parts were sto...

Parts for sale

Glad its not just me that thought the £400 door frames were a bit OTT to say the least. :shock: If I get the rest of the car right and the door frames are still holding me back I will be contacting GW and QRG but thought I would get some used ones easier. I know what you mean Jim. Most of the seller...

Parts for sale

Agree to a certain degree as I have experienced the same when selling things. (both car and not car related) Also agree that some things are worth more as component parts than as a complete car. (one of my other hobbies is r/c cars which if I sold one I currently have it would raise £300 max but in ...

Parts for sale

I have been trying to get some parts for my Scimitar recently. Some that it needed because of age/previous owners handiwork & other parts I need because they were either damaged when the car was broken into or stolen from it by some local skip rats. In recent weeks the types of seller I have come ac...

Brake fluid

My experience of silicone brake fluid is generally positive but as has been said silicone fluid doesn't play well with other brake fluid. Many moons ago I bought a damaged kit car that had not only a small plate pop riveted to the bulkhead but also the stickers/labels all over the master cylinder th...

QRG parts books links

Both GW and QRG parts books are working for me.

I tend to use the QRG books as they can be saved and can been looked at without needing to go online.

GTE Owners Workshop Manual

With the above comments that parts are cheap for scimitars I must be buying the wrong parts from the wrong places. I try to support the club/specialist traders where I can but some of the parts I need are no longer available new. When I have tried to buy some used parts recently I must be picking th...

Rear light cluster

My se6 has a set of the cheap eBay trailer lights fitted. They were fitted by the previous owner a couple of years ago. If you look closely at my lenses you can see a few micro cracks. The lenses degrade when exposed to sunlight. I have bought a spare set & also have some LED type lights that I plan...

Lockheed caliper dismantling

"Brakes International" has been my go to website for brake parts for a few years now.

They are very good at sourcing strange and obsure parts.
They had pads and discs in stock for my JDM (japanese domesestic market) honda & even got me a set of caliper pistons & seals.

V6 Alloy timing gear

I checked the timing gear on my car a few weeks back by removing the petrol pump, to be 100% accurate the plate mounted where the petrol pump normally mounts, shone a torch into the hole (I did use a endoscope to be 100% certain). The give away for me was when the magnet on the endoscope stuck to th...

Optimistic Price SE6

I quite like the original colour too.

Looks like the seller is going by the old adage "There is no such thing as bad publicity"

As for its value. I doubt its worth £28,000 but if it looks as nice in the flesh it will sell for more than £2800.

eBay hacked?

Ive been a eBay member for 20 years & cant remember having to provide them with anything but could have a while back. I can remember having to provide paypal with photo id though. I thought the request was a scam but turned out it was a legit request as I had reached some limit that required id chec...
