OK, as promised I have sorted through some of the overwhelming amount of spares and am now listing things in a bit more of an orderly fashion. No idea what to ask for the exhausts so is 1/4 of QRG's new price OK?. (plus whatever for courier, packing etc). It was 3am I awoke in pain this morning so doing this gave me something to take the mind off.

Exhausts - what you see in the pictures.
Rear silencers are thin stainless steel with no sound deadening material which makes them very light weight. I think they must have been the earlier type with strap bracket at the rear. These have been cut off and I used SE6a type clamp on brackets. Someone must have hit a kerb or something as there is a bash you can see in the separate photo.

Front silencers are standard and stainless steel. The silencer body looks to be a higher grade than the pipes and one of the pipes has been welded along its length at some time - I don't know why. But it has not corroded so must be stainless welding.

Front link pipes. Made for my SE6a to replace the front silencers. It passed an MOT with these and just the light weight silencers, so was not too loud. But on long journeys it became a bit wearing at times so I added small straight through silencers at the front. Whatever the cost is for two 1m lengths of stainless tube plus courier?

Ford C3 gearbox and torque converter:
Already offered for free (on strict condition that it is not sold on, only given away if not used) to collect - as in you come and collect them and take them away or you arrange for someone else to do so on your behalf and I have no involvement. I can more or less be here at any time to suit to see them off. If I had not been offered a brand new box at the time I would have left this on on the car as it works fine.

Alternator Lucas 70 Amp: (Strangely the first photo of this was img_7755 :shock: )
Already offed for £20 (new one will cost £120 - first price I found) plus what ever courier and packing cost. It is a genuine Lucas LRA775 70 or 72 Amp, depending on which source you believe and has had very little use. However, it fairly quickly stopped regulating the voltage, as in voltmeter off the scale drive home with headlights, heater blower and rear demister on on a sunny summer day to stop the battery boiling. I have changed the regulator for a known good one but have no way of properly testing it on a car. If it is not regulating when you fit it I will refund the £20 but would ask that you accept the courier and packing costs. Sound OK?

The first advert for 1m stainless that I found on eBay for that size came to £33 inc. delivery. So does £30 inc. Hermes mainland delivery sound OK? And do you want me to check the ID of the tube?

When I replied was the first time I saw your response. Apologies for not spending my every waking moment on a Scimitar forum :)

:shock: I wasn't being sarcastic, only genuinely thanking you for letting me know. There are some on here who have not bothered and even some who have agreed to take stuff never to be heard from again, meaning other people who are interested are getting messed about and thinking it is me.

Again, I was only genuinely thanking you but do feel that response was a bit uncalled for - I would not have done it, in other words.

MickP.

Could the people who have agreed to buy things from me who have not been in touch again please let me know if you still want the items. They are sitting, packed and ready to go and have been for the past couple of weeks.

If you have changed your minds or no longer want them for whatever reason then that is no problem at all - we have all done that in the past - but please at least have the courtesy to let me know as others may be needing the parts.

Also, a big thank you to all who collected when you said you would, it makes everybody's life that bit more straight forward.

Thank you,
MickP.
