    sec 560
    hi guys and girls

    i have just bought a 560sec in red last week. it needs a few bits sorting out i.e bodywork , interior and boot leak etc.

    i was wondering whether you guys could recommend a SEC specialist in the west midlands area.

    your advice is very much appreciated.


    thanks

    just spoke to him he said they do mainly mechanical but other bitts will need bodyshop and said he could recommend. i will use him for servicing for sure seems to know his stuff.

    anyone know someone who can help with the some water ingress in the boot area it appears to be coming from aerials or rear lights. the rear screen and parcel shelf seem all good no rust etc on them neither any delmanation on rear screen.

    thanks

    You'd be best to check the seals round the rear screen, around the lights and possibly the boot itself and see if these have perished if this is happening.

    arfan 786 I have done a few sec's over the years and do a lot of restoration, at the moment i have a 1981 slc in from london for afull restoration its not for the faint hearted as the inner bulkhead behind the dash was the worst i have seen, but now is all repaired and water tight again.
    Give me a shout if I can be of any help
