SE6A £8400 + fees at CCA auction

Had a look around at the NEC show - nice but not totally original by any means and still would benefit from a bit of love...

SE5A Workshop Manual etc.

Might be interested in the 1977 Scimitar Main Dealers booklet - but don't understand what it is! Presumably not sales literature?

OK, bit of tidying up of the front been going on IMG_20180309_192101106.jpg Some polishing prior to swapping out the front silver bit (!) which has the wrong - silver - letters on it for one in slightly better condition with the correct letters.

Thanks all - will investigate GW and otherwise go with the rivet/screw options (unless someone turns up a random spare!)

SE6A rolling resto - much AGRo

Roger Pennington , you are correct (and someone else pointed out the same my other related post). My dad was a materials expert in the aeronautical world - he'd be shaking his head in despair if he read this...! It's a particularly hard grade of aluminium and came up fine (not scratched/dulled at a...

OK, I've been smartening up the Scimitar - first thing was the odd and loose lettering on the front. SE6 front SCIMITAR letters.jpg Chrome non-original as the Scimitarweb identifies, I've been pulling apart the replacement so I can repaint the black letters and clean up the stainless.

SE6A Lockheed Clutch Hydraulics

An update on this thread, particularly Nigel Clark 's really useful info: Here are the parts needed to convert from the expensive Lockheed hydraulics for the the SE6A clutch, as near a definitive list as I can manage. …The two cylinders can be bought together as a kit for about £25: http://www.ebay....

Perhaps there's been a swapping of lettering, from front to rear?

1977 SE6A SCIMITAR letters on front - chrome or black?

My chrome strip along the front with the proud (and slightly wonky) SCIMITAR letters are currently a) somewhat tarnished/loose and b) chrome.

I have a spare that came with the car that has black letters.

Which belongs with which car?
