That's sad news Dave, but I just hope Sims can find a way for it to stay with him.

Unless this is 1970s Belfast, your cul-de-sac is actually the Shankill Road and you're a member of the now defunct RUC - I'm quietly confident you've not much to worry about.
 
Some folks are naturally risk averse.  I get that.  But you've literally just got it, it's such a shame to give up on it over something trivial like parking it on a public highway which you've already paid for.


No I know, it's a combo of me being ultra precious and just generally paranoid.

I'll need to check but I may have a decent headlining that I can donate to the cause.

 

(Was one of the reasons that I was interested as have a spares car, so was looking to swap bits over as needed)

I know the headlining is in the car, but not sure if its sagging.

That would be great. I'm after a drivers door rub strip if you've got that too.

Joe has a breaker that I'm sure he'll offer up parts from. He might have one, I'm not sure - if he does it'll have the wrong colour trim though.

Fantastic, if you do, let me know what you'd like for it.

 

Also, there's a missing thing just in front of the sunroof. Think it may have been a manual wind for it in case the electric failed, at the moment it's just a round hole in the headlining with a nut behind it. If you have that also I'd be obliged

 You're right, that's a cap for manual winding.

Reckon there's one on the ex-Chompy breaker.  I don't *think* they changed that bit of interior trim when they did the facelift but I could be wrong.  Really pleased you're keeping hold of this, that's R8 good news (said in Yorkshire accent).

Going purely from how you describe it, it may be designed like that so you can pop the cap off, and wind the roof closed with a socket or something...

It's literally one of the ones round the back at my place. I'm considering spreading some of my stuff out to the both. He said I can have it for a while (whatever that means). But, I think this is a good chance to clear out and see if I can stomach squeezing the car in amongst my stuff. There's a hell of a lot of stuff which I cannot be bothered to remove out of my laziness. I think there's some up by Kings Heath that came up about 4 days ago, I'll have a look and try and find the advert again.

Or at least better than yours?
