Well it's been a while since I did any work on a Scimitar of my own - pressure of work, ongoing health issues and moving to a wreck of a house haven't helped. But, I've suddenly found some enthusiasm and energy :) and moved my se5 from where I dumped it a year ago :shock:
It's a big project, and I won't pretend its future always looked rosy, but it's a survivor, has a good chassis and engine and loads of other good bits despite appearances, and the way it has deteriorated in a year. Main big issues to tackle apart from bodywork ( I know a man for that) is snapped tailgate hinge rod, a gearbox that won't select gears, an overdrive with no wires - in fact lots of electrical things and recommissioning work as per usual for a car that's been parked up for 12 years.
