Electronic ignition query

My father always fitted one of the clip on coil type sparkrite point assisted electronic ignitions to all the cars he owned that ran points. I've used lumenition on a couple of my scimitars with no issues but have considered changing to something more modern. Will probably change when the lumenition...

Replacing the headlamp bowls, all four were rotted out in one way or the other, & found a few of the lokut plastic inserts either failed & bits already missing or manag...

EFI’s fleet

Thats quite a collection. Nice looking Mk 1 always had a soft spot for them after owning a very rotten mk 1 1300gt many many moons ago, think I paid £30 for it with a few month test and tax on it. Was fun while it lasted till the spring hanger decided it liked the look of sheltering in the boot inst...

Trying to match paint

To add to the others findings of paint scanning. My last kit car was painted in a custom mixed colour that more than a few people tried to match and had it scanned more than a few times.

DGAS plenum

I've got one & tried it on my SE6 with no issues. Only reason its not fitted now is engine bay tidying, so using the standard metal ford filter setup, once everything is done it will be getting refitted. I like the idea of the remote filter that can draw cooler air rather than hot air from around th...

Coach lines on SE5as?

Just had a search through all my old scimitar brochures, that I collected from the dealers when I was a child, none of the scimitars in the brochures have any form of pin striping on the cars featured in the brochures.

Stainless Steel Window Frames

I've been looking for a set of the stainless se6/8 window/door frames for quite some time & have got nowhere fast.
I have pretty much given up that the stainless se6 frames will ever be remade.
