Wanted: TR6 steel wheels

I take it you’ve contacted him? Last post said back up for sale?

Wanted: TR6 steel wheels

There was a set on Retro-Rides in London/Kent - very cheap but collection only and I couldn’t find time to get down there.

More bad luck for my Scimitar

Sometimes it's better to have a professional thief trying to get into your car rather than an opportunist idiot - less damage :(

probably a junkie looking for a satnav or similar to sell for cash.

If it separates part way it sounds like there’s a/some bolt/s left in.

Is the interior carpet all out?

Ben's (an emotional quandry) 1975 SE5a
