Alternative Coupé register ;-)

what are the lines between the A post and the front wheel arch? Does it have a flip front as well as a bonnet?

Two famous Sabre Sixes on the market

As noted from the RSSOC Facebook page... crack open that piggy bank:

876 HWD

361 WYD

Hopefully both will stay in the UK. How would you put use 876 HWD to full use though?

Check a couple of part numbers please

I'm pretty sure they're the same, from the early Sabre all the way through to at least the SE5a.

Coupe alloy rad

Btw, the photos of your old rad look like a perfectly standard Coupe one to me. As Jim says I'm not aware that any Coupes - even early S6 ones - had external header tanks.

Coupe alloy rad

Hi Chris, Thanks for your thoughts. The rads also good bit smaller as well. Spoke to G.W who reckoned it fits in the V6 Coupe with some minor modifications. G.W suggested that I have a very early rad fitted and that's why I haven't got a header tank. However I think my rads a standard Coupe rad & t...

Beware sending a BACS payment to QRG

Having worked in IT for many years I like to think I am pretty savvy when it comes to internet scams but this one sounds particularly good - hiding behind original address etc. The best defence for all of us is to share experiences. Unfortunately many are too embarrassed by being caught out and wan...

Beware sending a BACS payment to QRG

Im an infrastructure engineer and I see this happening alot albeit anti spoofing mechanisms are getting better. The simplest fix is to just call him and get his payment details over the phone, never send payment off the back of an email. Good advice. Trouble is you're less likely to do this when de...

SE4 wire wheel hub adaptor nuts

Have you tried MWS? I'm sure they'll have the correct low-profile nuts you require.

Tyre sizes for SE4 Wire Wheels.

I've just fitted a set of Hankook Kinergy 165/80R15 tyres, at less than £45 a corner delivered plus fitting. Personally I think the best compromise is 185/70R15 which at 20mm wider looks good, has pretty much the same diameter and (I think) fits under the Coupe wheel arch. But this is an uncommon si...

I understand you want more power and I hope it works with the Omega set up but what you are doing is great as it gets the Scimitar out there for people to see - and that has to be good for the marque. More power to your elbow Mikey. :hurrah:

Straight Six engine mount

If your oil filter's in the original position (can't recall?) I think the driver's side is where the height of the engine is most critical. Too low and the filter touches the chassis member, too high and it hits the steering column. So I'm guessing this is an attempt to restore the height of the eng...
