6 centre console

Post by peter freeman » Mon Sep 24, 2007 9:06 am

These crack very easily and therefore don't last long and there are no replacemeents available. Rumour has it that someone made GRP replacements but who ?. Don't need it myself at the moment but top crash pads for the 6 and the 5's are also something worth considering.

I recall Don doing 5a ones - but not 6 ones. Saying that, I had a 5a at the time so I would have been a little blinkered in what I was looking for!

moulds

Post by greenmeanie » Tue Sep 25, 2007 10:35 am

Hi I have moulds for SE5a dash panel, door cards front and rear bumpers and rear panel and centre console and front air dams For the SE6 range centre console door cards and rear panel and am trying to do a mould for the crash pad. I am also looking into having the fibre glass bumpers chromed etched but waiting for confirmation due to the high temp needed so will have to see what distortion this will cause as the company has never done this process before

Hi Greenmeanie - you say you have centre console moulds - does that mean you're in a position to (a) hire/lend the moulds or (b) create a unit to order for a price (trimmed? untrimmed?).
I'd be interested to hear more info either way.
BTW I got a vinyl coated fibreglass dash top for a 6a from Scimtrim scimtrim-at-hotmail-dot-co-dot-uk - advertised a while back in Slice. Pricey - £125 I think, but eternally flat! (It took a while between first enquiry and delivery)

There are 2 types of 5a dash with the steering wheel position moved a bit, as I recall Don had problems with customers who had the earlier 5a where the dash didn't fit properly due to the fact that the mould was taken from a later dash. Do you have both.

So are these items going to be made ? best perhaps to place an ad in Slice to see how many people want them then you can make them in batches - I would like a 6 centre console for starters.

Hi Greenmeanie
Its an old post I know but....
Do you still have the moulds for a 6A. I have agreed to buy a scimitar again and it has cracked centre console and carpet covered rear panel.
I am in Oz presently and the car is in NZ please let me know if you can supply and at what cost
Cheers
martyn.

I have possibly the very last SE6 console, I bought it from SouthWest Scimparts when I was trading.

I have spoken to Adrian and he got it from Don when he sold up.

Adrian has told me he has No More, and will NOT be getting any made.

They were not a popular seller due to the Fettling needed, AND the colours were not too close to original, the gell coat was mixed wrong.

If anyones interested mine is a Yellowy Tan colour and open to offers.
