Classic car technician Steve has begun working on our 1979 Reliant Scimitar.

He started by investigating the brake master cylinder that was leaking fluid into the servo. The servo diaphragm was leaking air when the brakes were applied so both parts will need an overhaul.

The door switch contacts were found to be corroded so Steve dismantled these and cleaned them ready for reassembly.

Lydia then shaped and improved the fit on the front carpet mat, which allowed her to finish fitting this and glue it down. After this, she noticed that the rear seatbacks were faded and worn, so Lydia decided to replace them. She then refitted the handles and tacked them down at the edges to hold them in place.
