Classic Days 29-30 Aug 2020

I will inscribe my Scimitar, my wife's parents are living in Nevers so I have no excuse not to participate. My only interrogation is, should I go for the track sessions or not, I haven't decide yet.

French Porn [picture heavy]

I'm still hopping being able to plan a meeting near Annecy in September or October however this is difficult to have a clear view of what will be possible or not. Plus a lot of events are pushed back to this period, it will not help to gather people.

Step by Step preperation of registration of my Scimi SE5 in Germany

Hi, I have copies from the former German papers of mine. Not very readable, I will check on another computer if I have better ones.

Door alignment

Thanks guys, I think I will avoid to dismantle the whole door now, this will be a work for next winter (or next lockout :wink: ). I'm equipped with two left hands, I'm pretty sure that I will not achieve this easily.

Door alignment

So, after my test, this is not the door seal. My photo is not very good however, once removed, the door position doesn't change and from the inside we can see that the space left between the door and the body is increasing a lot between A pilar and B pilar. And the second latch is reached in both ca...

You mean that this seal could be too thick?

Yes seals are new, the former owner has rebuilt the car. The window frame seems well aligned. I have a small crack at the base of it, guess this is related.
So could be like Peter said, a window frame set up?

The rubbers on the wiper box are in the Void behind the cover at the rear of engine bay.
Not under dashboard.
Ok thanks, I will check this first.

SE5a Windscreen Wipers - Possible to Improve?!

That’s wrong the rubber bush is probably fitted 180 dgs out and its going to be a bugger to fix as the spacer behind the dash will also be out as well . That's what I was thinking, I have tried to unscrew from the outside and change the rubber orientation, but it seems that underneath something is ...

Door alignment

I already fear your answers to the question I'm going to ask. I have some difficulties to close the driver door and I've noticed that it starts to scratch the paint below B pillar. When the door is closed, there is quite a big gap visible (see picture). Is it easy to set the door alignement? And som...

SE5a Windscreen Wipers - Possible to Improve?!

Hi, I have also some issues with the wipers, on the driver side it destroys itself quickly touching the windscreen rubber and with a poor efficiency. I've noticed that between passager side and driver side, the orientation of the axle is really different. So, is it expected to have such different an...
