Shocks and poly bushes

Club traders but you will have to tell them the make of the shockers and the eye size as not all even of the same make had the same size bushes fitted. If replacing the complete units then I would go to the club traders again and find out which sort is offered by them - they often have more than one...

Door switch help

There was only originally one which had a purple/white wire. The second one can be there for a couple of reasons - because the original and its wiring was duff therefore it was done to replace the lot - or it might be part of a car alarm fitted to alarm when the door was opened. Try them one at a ti...

Hi, do you think though a 'new' mechanical pump would be better or would I not see much of an improvement?
if the car runs ok on the fitted pump then stay with it

Fuel pump - new mechanical or electric?

Fit a electric pump in series with the mechanical one and wire it up to a push button so you can prime the carb prior to starting and once started it will run on the mechanical pump. On the other hand using a mechanical pump only allows oil to get around the system before the engine runs

steering rack gaiters 6a

I use universal neoprene - they came with a funnel to get over the track rod ends - you don't think they will but they do with a bit of effort. I think they are on ll four cars now but they are not cheap.

Smart phone memory full !

Do you not have a micro SD memory fitted - if not then fit one and transfer your photos, apps etc to it or if there is one fitted fit a one with a bigger capacity. I have a 32GB fitted but 128 and larger are available and not expensive

XJS seats

Just acquired a pair of XJS seats for the Coupe and I know others have already fitted them. The for/aft motor and its wiring was easy to find but the position of the recline motor and lumber support motor are the problem - I assume they are in the sides but cannot see any wiring going there. Can any...

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

I would have to look for the paperwork to find the German members at the international but there were quite a few and they must have all had to register their cars in Germany so trying to contact one of them is the way to go. At one time there was a large German membership even a Porsche tests drive...

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

We had the international in Germany in 2016 organised by local Scimitar owners - I think someone in the club will be able to send you their contact details - I don't have them too hand.
