Wasn't that one on the Bay last week for £10k buy-it-now?
Alex.
Just catching up :oops:
It was in Brightwell's auction in February.
It may have also been a buy-it-now when it first appeared on eBay, but I didn't make a note.

Ians GTC rebuild. Now she runs.

Very nice Ian.
I have been contemplating replacing the plywood panels (what's left of them 😮) on mine too, and can't help wondering why Reliant never made them in fibreglass!

Might well look at the same material as you, as they look really good.

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Well done Guy, no trace of that one anywhere :) Are there any details on Facebook? As Jim has noted #151 apparently. Stalled project, and owner is asking whether someone's either interested in restoring for him, or maybe selling it (no price mentioned). Apparently mechanically all there with engine...

Chris, this popped up on FB this evening. I had a quick look on your your register and couldn't see the registration?

A recent rummage in the archives came up with these two pics, one of which was not on the site ... Details should be in the caption line At least one of those pictures (or another similar one) was on the back cover of Slice iirc. I know Ray (and I'm pretty sure Stuart as well) still owned their Cou...

Renault Scimiter [sic] Rat Rod

Many years ago, my insurance broker issued a cover note for my newly acquired SS1 - as a Renault Simitra :shock:

Perhaps they thought it was something akin to that evilbay item :lol:

Chris, welcome to the forum :D
This is the best place to ask those tech questions or search for answers - as a lot of us have tackled most of the issues that you are likely to have, before.

Look what came in the post today

Work are having a clear out and I rescued this lot before it was skipped. Mostly 316 stainless steel and mix of UNC and Metric.

Anyone recognise it?

The Luxembourg car appears to have an interior light on both B pillars. I think standard was only the drivers side B pillar, so making it a slightly more recognizable feature. And the red interior of course :)

Straight Six Spring Rates

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will come forward, however I've had a search through everything I could find with no luck. One thing I did find in an old Slice index is several references which "might" be fruitful: (I don't have any earlier than no.78) Rewminations: Springs 58-4; front springs ...

B post out of reach

3" sounds right :D But, they are pretty useless I'm afraid. I found one had fallen off of its own accord over winter :shock: To be fair, it's not so much the bracket as the knurled bolt that's at fault. It needs to be a much bigger course thread. The bracket should be slotted and just about sits ove...

I see Ashley Hinton are drinking Coffee this week rather than plain water. :lol: :wink: Black coffee. I only got the cowling and grille from them. Other bits from various sources including NEC a couple of weeks ago :D Speaking of grille Mark, any update on the front mesh grille I pm'd about :) Guy
