Lockheed will be brake or clutch parts I think. The later 6b didn’t have the SCIMITAR lettering but had a large shield instead, perhaps he fitted one of those?

Sorry to hear you paid a lot for it Ian - you should have asked on here when you were looking, I seem to have four and would have probably sent you one for the price of postage.

Did this ever get made?

also look up the "Target" which was a set of panels Towns proposed to make an SS1 look like that.

IIRC, in the small sports anorak discussion, it was mooted that the SS2 and Target were in fact the same "car" underneath (just a few tweaks and paint)

The parts manual shows 2 in the front, 3 in the rear - all unique except for the two rearmost.

after 40 or 50 years the sealant can fail and let water in, yes.

the gutter - it's held on by rivets into the bodyshell, which can let water in.

rear side window seal, B post GTE badge holes or rain channel would be my suggestions to check.

First time start.

Take the king lead off the dizzy and see if you have a spark when you turn it over with the metal centre held close to the engine.

The Golden Coupe

That’s interesting, the pulley looks very dished - mind me asking how much it was? I bought one fairly recently and it wasn’t that type.

That new pump looks very deep - what was it advertised as? And what pulley are you going to fit to it (or did it come with one?)

windy window transplant

I’ve done several - the doors have mounting holes etc for elec or keep fit, so it’s just a case of swapping everything over. Elec door cards just need holes cutting out, they’re even marked out on the back :D

They’re not Essex - the stud holes on the Essex are slightly offset from the exhaust port centreline.
