Re: Thinking of joining the club?

I discovered a problem with the online form that resulted from the move to the new style site but did not show up in testing. I have corrected this and and the online form should now be working correctly. Just tried that again Look like its working now - I even got a confirmation email Cheers Joe

Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration - Some More Earth Please

Iv been busy doing some engine wiring upgrades. My alternator was not able to keep the battery charged if I used even dipped headlights. The gauge would go down to the red when I used the headlights and after a 60 mile drive it would be quite flat. I found some useful wiring in an old 405 we had at ...

On a positive note, I got my interior back today. To say I'm chuffed to bits would be the understatement of the year ! I will be thanking Tony Richardson for putting me on to this guy.

About 2 weeks ago I reque...

Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration -Tick Tick Tick Go Away!

That is a job that I've been meaning to do - there are some of the braids and wires for earthing fitted but id like to beef them up with some new earthing wires. Its one of those jobs on the to do list ;). It would explain my poor battery charging when I use my lights too.

Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration -Tick Tick Tick Go Away!

yes its rev sensitive but seems to dissappear over 2500/3000 revs - but maybe I just can hear it over the engine ;) . It just gets faster not louder even when the volume is increased.

Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration - Tick Tick Tick Go awaw

That looks very smart Joey :D It would be worth checking that all the little blue, cylindrical, supression capacitors are still attached. They seem to be all over the place, and they only have thin wires, so they're inclined to come loose. ....Roger This ticking noise from my speakers continued sin...

Re: Scimitar SE6a Restoration -Shocks and Springs

Well its been a while since my last update. I've got a good few jobs off my to do list done. I got a nice remote central locking kit off eBay sent from Germany which was pretty easy to fit.
