The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

Good morning Gents, There's a fresh update on my Scimitar on ViaRETRO this morning, detailing the instalment of the Quickfit seatbelts. It wasn't cheap if I'm to be totally honest, but I must say that I'm over the moon with the final result. https://viaretro.com/2019/02/buckle-up-and-stay-safe/ We'v...

Springs, Dampers and Bushings

Dennis, thx indeed for that write-up. Very thorough and informative... :D As it is though, all the suspension work has already been done now. I ended up taking my Scimitar to Graham Walker. I imagine - or at the very least, hope - that they would be aware of the difference between SE5 and SE6 compon...

Nice one Anders. Looks like the weather in the Peak District is much like Denmark 8) Heh... makes a viking like me feel nice and cosy here in the UK... :wink: I see you're in Antibes. We used to live in Cannes around 2007 - 2008. Nice part of the world... Nice photo! :D Did you know you're not far ...

Springs, Dampers and Bushings

Thx Gents, However, the same time constraints are still in force. I thoroughly enjoy spannering on my classics, but I'll be the first to admit that I'm neither a mechanic nor an engineer. So while I can manage a fair amount of work myself, it does no doubt take me a bit longer than it would a pro. T...

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

I've now owned my Scimitar for about three weeks. In that time I've already added about 1300 miles to the speedo, and I've loved every moment of it too... :P It's delt with my commute to and from work, it transported me down to the Sunday Scramble at Bicester Heritage, and while my mother visited th...

Springs, Dampers and Bushings

Just to tie this one up... Time constraints leading up to our drive to Denmark and back in February, meant I needed to be realistic about how much spannering I was going to achieve on my own. Much to my dismay, I have to fit in going to work every so often as well... :roll: Not wanting to end up dri...

The opportunity is there - grab while you can. :wink: A good friend of mine did it in his Mini back in 2017: https://viaretro.com/2017/08/north-coast-500/ To this day he still won't stop talking about it... :lol: So much so, that some friends and I have loosely begun planning our own NC500 roadtrip ...

Wet Carpet!

You can take the rear passenger side panel out to check the pipe without too much difficulty. Okay, so if the rubber seal for the rear side window is okay, and the problem is only the tube from the drain plug, then I can I should be able to fix it without taking out the window? Have I got that right?

The tube had come adrift from my drain "plug" and water had ran down the side panel on to the seat belt unit when it rained

Using van winter tyres on a Scimitar?

If you drive on van tyres in Germany and have an accident you will be prosecuted. Van tyres do not have the appropriate speed rating and proper snow tyres are essential. I wonder where you would stand then, two choices. Tyres with snow markings but Van tyres, or non van tyres but no snow markings? ...
