Re: Mk2 interior

It's the piece which goes across the hatch opening and overlaps the inner D pillar covers and keeps the rear of the headlining in place and meets the hatch seal. You know, the bit that always breaks when you take it off. Having examined mine after removal, the problem is that the plastic lugs which ...

Re: Set of MK1 Trickford Rocker Panels needed

Motobuild did a copy of the TWR kit which was made of fibreglass, The Rover ones were ABS plastic and not foam and were held on by plastic clips. If you look at my car, you can get the idea of the shape so it may be possible to have some 3D printed or made by a fabricator. https://s33.postimg.cc/ytx...

Re: Mk1 Windscreen Scuttle Panel

I'm surprised no-one has made a pattern part for these as there seems to be a demand for them, like the sills.
I suppose I could measure my last new one for size and a sheet metal worker could make them.

Re: Chat about cars you've been in lately

Nissan Juke. The second one I've hired in the last four months. It's really not that bad a car despite its quirky looks. It's a firm ride but not overly so, The driving position is good and the amount of kit it's fitted with is great. I'd like to try the 4WD version if possible. Performance is good ...

Re: car insurance rip off

Sergei isn't always the best. He gave me a quote from the CIS which was ok so I just thought I'd get a direct quote from them myself too. I saved £70 by going direct and when I tried to claim a Meerkat they said I wasn't eligible as I hadn't booked it with the CIS through their website. So, now I kn...

Re: Rescuing old DVD's and C/D's.

What interface does the CD drive have, IDE or SATA ? I'm sure I have a few drives spare and you could have one for the cost of postage. I even have one of the first CDRW drives too and a lightscribe drive (putting a lightscribe enabled disc the wrong way up andf you could burn text or images into th...

Re: Rescuing old DVD's and C/D's.

However i have drilled a 3/8" hole through a CD to prove it would still play afterwards and it did. That was 32 years ago though and things may have changed. :wink: :D You can cut 4 large radial slots in a CD and it will still play due to the error correction algorithm. Philips made a CD player whi...

Re: My 820 Tickford Turbo

I've still got mine too although she has an overheating problem at the moment. She's not using much, if any serious amount of water and she gets lumpy when she's up to temp. I have new cts and temp gauge sensors and a radiator to fit as operating the heater seems to assist with cooling. I'm also goi...

Re: The Trailer - For Sale

Plus the fact that there are few Mk1 800s on the road so it narrows the market a tad.
