Door alignment

The panel gaps are spot on, on my door, so that's why I'm loth to take the door off, hence me furtling about behind the A post to no avail. As far as I can make out the door structure is OK, but someone seems to have had a go in the past at getting the 'in and out' orientation right as I can just ma...

That leaves the headrest question
Peter, is the seat this type? If so, I've never been able to move the headrest, and as far as I can see there's not enough 'meat' in the backrest to accommodate a 'pillar' for a moveable headrest.

Door alignment

But are the A post nuts actually accessible? I've not been able to even get my fingertips on all of them, never mind spanner/alternative tool!

Door alignment

:shock: but how have those nuts been tightened when building the car? yes i was wondering about that too, as I'm going to adjust my driver's side door at some stage. It's too far 'in' at the bottom front corner. It looks like I'll have to put a spacer between the door and the hinge, unless anyone h...

Spellings a bit wrong :roll:
Which is unfortunate for the seller, as if you put in a search term for just the word 'scimitar' you won't find it!

Tidy SS1

Hi, Being a bit bored and fed up with grass cutting/car washing I've been browsing the net and just spotted this one on the Honest John site. I know these cars are a bit thin on the ground and don't come up for sale that often so it's difficult to know what values are doing, however it does look nic...

Mystery site

It looks to be trawling eBay looking for keywords - the particular SS1 you linked, sold years ago and resides in East Anglia again. Thanks for the info, I'm not at all surprised the example i picked sold years ago, given the dates of the queries! I imagine the sellers that disclose a mobile number ...

Has anyone any knowledge of/info on a site called cars-from-uk.com ? example here. I ask as in the past I've stumbled on cars seemingly for sale on it , but note that there are always unanswered questions posted e.g. "how much is it" , and "whereabouts are you" and these seem to be from years ago. I...

GTC on Ebay

Ian, and on the other subject here, I followed Andy's instructions to sort out my C3 box which was not in good health - and it was pretty easy to do. The result is like a different car :D Guy Thanks Guy, I'm a big fan of autos (had three C3 - equipped Scimitars) and while none of them gave any trou...

Standard fault, easy to deal with by anyone who can handle a socket set. Parts are inexpensive and I carry them in stock.
Thanks for that Andy, good to know! Ian

Thanks for that, I wasn't aware of the vehicle enquiries site, I usually just go straight for the MoT page. Every day, a day at school!
