Yes, it is all in the bumpers, love em or hate 'em. I believe the 800 mk2 was the biggest Rover ever made (by a bumper), bigger than the P5 and the SD1. Of course, it is quite narrow thanks the Japanese restriction on width. But I don't find it claustrophobic unlike most modern cars. Mostly due to do lower waistline and bigger glass. Oh, and not having the typical, overbearing black, black, black interiors most have, including the roof liner!

If I could, I would also have a Jag or two; love the XJ-S coupe, always have even when you couldn't give them away. More realistically an X Type, 2·5 V6, estate AWD. Nearly bought one four/five years ago (£1800 for top spec) but since then prices seem to have shot up.

If you're after bumper brackets, the 'other Dave' (Dolly Sprint?) who runs the Rover 800 Club did have some for sale based on a similar design that I came up with a few years back.

I'm half-way thinking of an X-Type estate to replace the Volvo when it eventually gives up the ghost Mark. As you say, prices have shot up but they've done that with almost all secondhand cars, higher still for cars over 40 years with tax (and MoT) exemption.

As for bumper slide brackets, i'm fairly sure i have at least 4 new ones, they (and any others) will go with the car when it sells.
Cheers,
Dave

I took my Daimler for the service last Saturday, and when I came back by small roads, I took some pictures...

I classified my vacation photos in the North of Britany, there is little. I reassure you, I only put those of the cars...
