Protech Springs and fully adjustable dampers

Protech are fantastic to deal with - proper small British company on a trading estate. They have racks full of spacers and will swap and change end fittings for next to nothing. If I didn’t have new dampers on 8 ball already, I’d snap these up.

The whole body from the A post forward is longer than standard, so John C must have had a bodyshell modified at Reliant to fit?
Are you sure Jim??
No, I’m not (having never seen the car) - and I can’t remember who told me but I think it was Dave after he first saw the car in 2012.

Scimitar 4x4 Prototype to be Auctioned

I imagine off the shelf standard parts were used/modified to fit when it was made into a road car. It has an underbonnet spare so must use a very similar arrangement?

Some pics from Dave showing the heavily modified chassis. Nothing inside the side rails, forward of the trailing arm mount tube, is standard.

Black sealant was my weapon of choice for an “expedient repair” to snotty’s quarter lights (assuming you don’t need the opening function?)

Scimitar 4x4 Prototype to be Auctioned

So as I said previously, this seems not to have been a Reliant project so much as GKN/FFD hawking their transmission around trying to find buyers. But were Reliant as a company really secretly considering offering a 4WD option, or was this John Crosthwaite's own personal pet ambition, or was it jus...
