Window felt scraper seals SE5 - Parts missing / Wanted ?

Some photos from my Coupe parts manual. Parts 65 and 71 are the ones of interest. Part 65 is descibed as a weatherstrip and 71 is a "backing plate, vent". "Vent" is Reliant-speak for the window frame. On my SE4b (which was exactly as it left the factory when I got it), part 65 is the same as the one...

I used Stixall to glue them in place after the door had been rebuilt and my wife sacrificed two clothes pegs as wedges to hold them in place while the adhesive set. :) rsz_1door_window_seals.jpg I found the original seals in the bottom of the door. They didn't have any hol...

Overdrive clutch type

Tan SE6 on transporter near Cheltenham

Spotted outside our house earlier today, couldn't see the reg. Initially I thought it might have been a late Father's Day present but then it carried on past! :)

The Golden Coupe
