Wow you're quick off the mark Dave. Check my post again as I initially duplicated the first pic 7 times, now fixed!

Just in case anyone was wondering what 5hrs waxing and wearing one's fingers to tiny stumps looks like: https://s19.postimg.cc/bdebjzm37/20180630-1.jpg https://s19.postimg.cc/61zez9kkz/20180630-2.jpg https://s19.postimg.cc/3knnrwsxv/20180630-3.jpg https://s19.postimg.cc/6eqt5d2tv/20180630-4.jpg http...

Re: What on earth..!!??

That's been on here before years ago, someone spotted it in a petrol station.

Looks to have 3 very rare 16" Mk1 prestiges on it. Wonder where the 4th one is?

You are quite right Phil, the font of all knowledge, am envious of his technical writing skills, which he is kind enough to use to always pass help onto others.

Re: Rover 825 v6 Sterling 1998 R543 HJW

Late to the party I know but two points: 1) Fob barcodes were often kept in the owners manual wallet, if it still exists 2) My garage in St Albans has managed to get a R600 fob work in a Mk2b. (I think zeros were used as leading characters where the 600 fob code was too short?) Keep the barcodes for...

Re: Garage Clearout of 800 Spares

Hmm let me have a think about that, Dave. Basically the vinyl edging on the nordic car's sunroof glass (manual mechanism) is lifting and causing bit of wind noise >60mph or so. Sticking it back down again is expected to be pretty hit and miss, as is applying a new edging, hence the idea of fitting a...

Sounds nice - any pics? Atlantic Blue with lattice alloys?

Is this the one I once sent you some washer jets for?
