Coupe heated rear window

Thanks for your input Jim & Peter. Without a window the Coupe roof is indeed VERY flexible. However, height was not a problem with hands inside and out. The width at the top was the killer by just a few mill's. Careful measurement and comparison with the existing unit (manufacturing date 1964) show...

No Clutch!

I've done it twice and a great tip i was given, that worked well, is to buy some threaded rod and replace the bolts with it. Then I ratchet strapped it to a trolley jack and pulled it back. Saved lying under it bench pressing it and trying to shuffle backwards at the same time, or it dropping as soo...

TVR vixen alloys

Hello! I just recently reshod my finned alloys and put them back on the car. It's pretty straight forward but I did need different wheel nuts .

Green SE5a for sale in South Carolina

The owner of this green car who is a poster on pistonheads recently said he sold the car and was planning on relocating back to the UK. No idea who he sold it to.

Am I making a big mistake?

Sully is for sale

Maybe I missed it but I didn't see a mention in your description of the the bespoke 3 point rear seat belts fitted by quikfit safety belt services. That's a real bonus and must have cost Martin port a fair amount of money. If I was in the market I would be snapping it up on that point.

This one looks so great. Any thoughts on hammer price? I suspect that guide of $8k might be pessimistic of the right motivated buyers are there.
