Front damper length?

You’ve already asked this question here.

I can’t see where it recommends softer springs in Craig’s article? Certainly wouldn’t be my recommendation. Standard are around 180 IIRC.

Chassis number SE6

Haven’t you bought an Essex?

Won’t fit in that car without modifying the chassis mounts!

Chassis number SE6

S = Europe
C = UK
D = Reliant
19 = GTE
03 = auto, non-PAS, RHD
58 = Trafalguar Blue
9 = 1979
M = December
005481 = sequential chassis number (one of the early 6b - 27th I think)

044001 is the type approval number for the 6a or b

Amended because I got it wrong :oops:

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

I’m sure I looked at a V6 version (limited edition)?

Off to google :D

Okay - apparently beset with problems making it RHD, so we never got the Activa with V6 - must have been wishful thinking (or it wasn’t an Activa), or my memory is confusing it with the ZF auto adaptive gearbox it came with?

I had a 305 (petrol) saloon but funnily enough I saw a 504 pickup the other day, in orange just like the one my dad had :D

The Isuzu 1.7TD wasn’t too bad - not a patch on the pug diesels though. The activa was only available with the 2 litre petrol or the rarer 3 litre V6 IIRC?

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

I looked at a new 4WD Calibra in 1995 (and the V6 but I think that was a lot more money at the time?) - went with a diesel Cavalier in the end as it was one of the last, so they threw in every possible option. I soon wished I’d swapped the ZX TD for a Xantia Activa rather than the cav though :D

FREE 5a body

I do have the rear section Andy - but I’m not sure that it’s the same as the 5? I can cut it out and offer it up to diesel to check - before wasting any money on postage?

I saw a white Vitesse heading towards Cheltenham this morning and a mile or so later, a black NSX going the same way. Then I passed an XK120/140 parked in the Colesbourne Inn car park.

Bumper doesn’t look right either?

I had some correspondence with Dave Poole some time ago regarding the gold car - I think he may have some more photos of it?

Storage

Alex has decided to sell his other car and get the Scimitar back in tip-top condition, so we have another space available in the storage unit if anyone is thinking of laying their car up before we get the threatened bad weather!

Funnily enough Thomas Touw posted a pic of the sharknose on Facebook this week asking for info - apparently a friend of his owned it in Holland in the 80s
