GTC hood suppliers?

Thanks for the tip. All the ones I'd seen on eBay looked a bit flimsy! Nice to see they can punch the holes as well.

Famous Scimitar owners

A "Play, a pie and a pint" episode last night (maybe only north of the border) mentioned that Chic Murray had a Scimitar but didn't specify the model. Apparently he got off a drink-driving charge because his lawyer argued that the car was Chic's office, he being a much-travelled comedian.

GTC hood suppliers?

I hadn't realised that the poppers weren't fitted, with all the blurb about 'original patterns' I thought they'd know where to put the fixings! Maybe they sell the tools as well.

GTC hood suppliers?

I've got samples on the way from Don and Aldridge, thinking that 'Burgundy' might be a dark red sort of thing. Or dark green :?

GTC hood suppliers?

I think one of the posts I looked at said that GW source their hoods from Don.

It looks like most people go with black but I'm really tempted to have a change!!

GTC hood suppliers?

£493.50 in black or 10% extra for colours. I read somewhere that hot water has the same effect as a warm day for fitting.

I'm in Scotland so unless Guy has a pattern he's a bit far....

GTC hood suppliers?

I've had a look at past posts and Don Hoods is a name that appears most often. Are they still the go-to suppliers? I also see that Aldridge list GTC hoods on their site, but at nearly twice the price!! Has anyone invested in one of theirs? Has anyone had a hood from any other supplier and can recomm...

Front brake operation

When you say the m/c was bled do you mean bled on the bench, before fitting?

My alternator (17ACR) seems to have gone into reverse! Ignition light is on until I turn the ignition on then goes off, and when the engine starts the battery voltage goes down by about 1 volt. All suggestions welcome.

From memory 5/16 AF spanner.
I had a bundle of spare wiring tucked up in the hole which blocked access. Once that was pulled out things were easier. Like you I didn't want to remove the loom.
I took the wheelboxes out for the repaint so it must be possible!

Only doing 'market research' at the moment. I've a project in mind that will need the existing O/D removed.
