An update about my father's 827 Si :D .

As seen on the page before, there was an rust issue on both sills. A friend of mine and myself had / took the time to make the 800 better again. The result is that there is no rust anymore and its a durable result :D .

1. remove rust.
2. cut away a straight bigger area.
3. made a plate from galvanized steel (friend of mine did it and did an amazing job!).
4. weld it in place (friend).
5. rust prevention primer.
6. filler to make it look better.
7. sanding.
8. second layer of filler.
9. sanding.
10. second layer of rust prevention primer.
11. stone chip spray.
12. black colour lacquer.
13. clear lacquer.
14. protected the sills inner side with wax tectyle.
15. cleaning the car :P .

Haha you know oranjeboom :D. Yes i will give him something nice.

Indeed the welding and forming the metal was the hardest job. I only had to finish it, filler paint etc, also took some time but more easy.

It is such a nice thing to do and knowing that you keep a classic on the road is priceless. My father is very happy :).

I do know oranjeboom very well from my many football trips to your country during the 80's & 90's to a tournament held at a village called grubenvorst in the south near venlo.

Many happy times at sv de Swan and trips to the oranjeboom factory. The only thing that let it down was all your taxis at the time were German 190e's no rover 800's :lol:

Oranjeboom, Oranjeboom, it's a lager not a tune! The original tv advert from the 80s when it was sold in the UK :

Enjoy!

An update on my dad's 1993 827 Si.
The black beauty that belongs to my father has been treated to a new timing belt, tensioner and water pump to make sure the V6 stays in top condition. The belt was not a ''new old stock'' because we wanted a fresh one and not one that is old and maybe dried out. So a brand new belt was installed. The previous belt was in the car for 8 years and 40.000 kms.
Image

The old belt did not look very bad.

You're welcome Marc - can't understand why there weren't more black 800s around although here they tended to be used by either government departments or funeral directors so could be why!
Cheers,
Dave

It does really suits the car i think. But maybe indeed they are a bit to serious looking. It is not a happy family saloon in this colour but indeed something that brings government ministers from summit tot summit. :)

Only seen one other black one, an 827 Sterling that was at the Peterborough show, apparently an ex-VIP car (governmental maybe) and was originally fitted with video surveillance kit for inside and out. Still had all the Sterling kit as fitted by the factory so the government didn't skimp on that at least! :wink: :D

Dave

Wow that is very cool indeed! And no, for some reason the government does not safe penny's on their own comfort. ;)
Black is very rare. I believe there are tree 800's in The Netherlands that are Jett Black. One exactly the same as my dads car but that was at a breakers yard (now probably scrapped) and one was/is an 820. But nowadays any 800 is rare. We are driving diamond dogs.

Believe it or not in the past i've seen cars (can't remember what cars they were now, it's a long time ago) that while they had all the creature comforts in the back, the driver had to make do with wind up windows, cloth seats with manual adjustment etc whereas the rear seats were all electric, heated, electric windows etc. :shock:
Cheers,
Dave
