Re: 800 Owners Club

Charles you have a right to your opinion and you have had the freedom to voice it. Your criticism of the 800 Owners Club would have resulted in your membership being revoked had you not already terminated it yourself. I know this because I once criticized the club and had my membership revoked witho...

Re: 800 Owners Club

Charles I am sorry to hear that you think so lowly of me personally, I do try to help when I can but if someone else has already posted the answer to a query then there seems little point in replicating that. I started the new 800 Club for the reasons mentioned above regarding the direction of trave...

Re: Turbo Coupe

He wont get £2000 breaking it so always worth an offer. I did see this at POL but I didn't look at it closely.

Re: Brand new sills

Yes the new 800 Club will continue with the Coupe sills in the near future and hopefully wheelarch repair panels for MK1, MK2 and Coupe derivatives. However this does largely depend on membership take up for one and finding the time to get to the fabricators for two. If you are interested in joining...

Re: Manalishis 820 Vitesse Coupe

Might be worth looking into plasti-dipping to get trim "walnut veneered".
It's on my "to do list" for the new 800 Club but an outfit in Sweden would probably make more sense for you Henrik.

Henrik Chris' picture gives an excellent view of the 3 heater boxes from left to right, in your car they will be right to left.

Re: Stickers Wanted

A lot of food for thought there Dave, i've tried looking online at http://bmcblrally.co.uk/ and keep getting a "404 : Page not Found Error" and sometimes a "403 : Forbidden" so whether their server is down or the site is now defunct or what, i don't know. I'll have a good think and post a better re...

Re: Stickers Wanted

I've been to have a look at the 'Rover800.club' and perhaps I'm being a little stupid. What is really the difference/advantages between here and there and what am I getting for my £24? (not a lot of dosh but still...) Is anybody here on there as well and can throw a bit more light on the situation?...

Re: Stickers Wanted

There is no committee Dave, like this Forum it's run by enthusiasts who believe the members and their cars are more important than dictatorial committees. This Club is also run on the belief that without technical information and where possible parts remanufacture the car will be reduced to just han...
