Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

What length and threads are they? Work sells genuine Honda ones which may be the same and I can check on Monday.

Scimitar mileages before lockdown

My 5a and To did about 12k a year as my only cars from when I got my license to when I bought a modern car 3 years later. The Coupe doesn't get as much use now but still about 2k

FS: Coupe Boot Lock

Chrome is reasonable and it's been dismantled, cleaned and regreased. No key supplied but I have the key number off the barrel and keys are readily available on eBay.

FS: Straight Six Coupe

It just kills me that I don't have the funds for this right now... :cry: It would sit so nicely between my pale blue '63 Rochdale Olympic and my aubergine '78 Scimitar SE6a. I wish you best of luck with the sale - while I secretly hope you struggle long enough for me to stomp up the monies... :wink...

Legal beavers out there ?

You don't really need to be a legal beaver, it's pretty clear. You left your house.

plastic digit number plates

Framptons made the raised digit plates for my XJ. Including the bespoke size rear plate, the pair were only £60

SE5 267

No, not been anywhere near the sea, just in a hedge in Hertfordshire since 1985. I don't see this one being saved. The only way would be a replacement chassis and then its star feature, it being an early car, is lost anyway. If anyone wants to take it on, they're welcome to have it for what it owes ...

SE5 267

I thought this was worth showing, I've never seen one this bad before. It was a genuine struggle finding anywhere substantial enough to attach the winch too :lol:

My 1968 V6 Coupe has wire wheels. Can they go tubeless?

MWS construct their tubeless wire wheels by filling the valley of the rim with silicone - about 7mm thick

Kevlar Hoses

I know the kevlar reinforced hoses for Scims are pretty poor and don't last long, BUT does anyone have any comments on the quality of their fitment? Are the bends and diameters correct etc?
And are they available for Cologne engined cars as well as the Essex engined ones?

Thanks
