Going to buy a light board for it with another plate, and perhaps next week start slowly putting in the new wood parts to the bits that need doing.

Mudguards - I think they are supposed to have mudguards.


What's the retail on one of those plumbed in fire extinguisher systems?

Yeah sorry it has them, they were inside the trailer, need re attaching. I'll be slowly "restoring" it over the coming weeks as and when I have time. Managed to squeeze it into the garage after throwing loads of shit to the back. Genuinely not any space left now to even move.

If you go leather try and get and early one. The later SEi half leathers aren't particularly comfortable

Small update (cobody nares)

 

Been using this regularly as the Bora has been laid up due to mobile mech struggling with seized wishbone bolts etc. Added almost 200 miles, mainly in hot weather, stationary etc and my god, it never overheats whatsoever. Holds temperature like a king. Cleaned up the engine bay after oilgate, and it purrs as per.

 

I have seen a couple immaculate ones on ebay, but, the are all around £600 plus mark and honestly, mine isn't that far off tbh.

 

Sorted the stereo btw, took it to an audio specialist who fixed it. Magically, the rear wiper began to work as did rear demist. He said I had damaged some sort of wire which he fixed, so the 2 were clearly related. I HAVE REAR WASH WIPE NOW M9. 

 

Due to the Bora costing me a little more than I anticipated, I've decided I'm going to limit myself to 1 job a month on the Rover, ie if I cannot do it myself then I shall pay someone. I'll sort the headlining out at some point this month, I have a crude plan to spray loads of spray glue through the end and then push it on, which, in theory, will work. May even attempt a gearbox oil change. The CV Boot is fine for now, seeing as I don't do many miles. 

 

Plans for next month is fresh coolant, new rad and thermostat. Despite it holding perfectly, I'd rather have it running just so in my mind. 

 

THE CLOCK is pissing me off. The cover for the HR/MIN is missing, and that irks me.

Test any spray glue first as some can "bleed" through the fabric and leave a yellowish stain.

It's worth shouting over on the R8 club http://www.rover200.org.uk/ for things like driveshafts, there's been a couple through the forum recently and there's quite a few parts floating around.

 

Headlining is a fibreglass-ish board with a foam-backed fabric over the top of it.  If it's coming unglued it's probably the foam that's disintegrating so ideally you want to pull the headlining out, strip the fabric and stick some fresh fabric on.  It's something I need to do with my 414.

 

If there's any trim bits you need, other than the clock flap, let me know.  I might be able to help after the recent Rover Raid at Castle Krujoe.

I recently used it on the Bora, weirdly the A pillar lining had come undone due to heat. Didn't seem to bleed tbh, looked ok. If it bleeds, I'll just tear it off and start again.

I read that as "Cock Flap" initially ha! I was planning on doing it, I found a thread with someone who had but it seemed a lot of effort. I'm not even sure what cloth to replace it with. 

 

I'll have another look around inside. I was after a belt buckle for the front passenger side, as the plastic casing broke around it. The spring fell out too but it still works, if you have that, I'd be grateful.

Pretty sure there's a belt buckle in one of the Krujoe Rovers and I do need to make a return visit when I can get my shit together to pick up some other things.

 

Headlining fabric: http://www.ebay.co.u...e-/171990605620  as recommended by another R8 owner.  I'm still tempted by the red they do.  About 3 metres was enough to do the headlining and door cards, apparently.

Ah that would be grand. That fabric looks gorgeous. Need to decide what I'm going to do first though. There is a list, just finding time etc. Potentially may even be moving to a different place, which means I will have to sell the Rover as it has only 1 space with no garage. It's on the horizon, although I shall be using it more often as the Bora is still off the road until the middle of next week.

The front buckles for early and later cars are different, I think this one is the early non-airbag, non-pretensioner type. I don't think I have any, but will check. I may have them from the blue car, the seats went in the Samara from that.

This is now for sale chaps.

 

Personal reasons, (house move, money etc etc). This has been a lovely thing for me to own, and I have genuinely enjoyed it but I must move it on to someone else for them to enjoy.

 

Sterling engine, strong as anything and I have enjoyed using it frequently. Holds temperature and NEVER ever creeps.

 

Pictures still as per original post. 

 

In my ownership I've serviced it fully with new filters/plus/oil, plus had a newer headunit fitted in with aux. Also, new front wipers, and new rear washer pump

 

Comes with spares :full cambelt kit, 2 new rear brake cylinders and shoes, thermostat.

 

I'd like £240 please. Still making a loss re what I spent, but, I want this to go to a good home.

 

Negatives - genuinely hadn't gotten around to applying for the V5 since I had it off Taxi Paul. I managed to tax it since and just haven't found time to do it.

 

Headlining saggy at the rear, and will need CV boot doing on NSF. But, generally, solid, and under chassis is great. Sills need a rub down and respray with stone chip at some point but are solid. Really has been loved. 2 keys too.

 

I'm in Birmingham

Bora is no longer fucked, but, seeing as I hate it as much as I hate watercress, the Rover will now not be used. Has just under quarter tank of fuel blah blah.

 

May roffle it. £240 chaps, with spares, plenty of MOT and proven to be a reliable thing. COME ON DOWN

Sorry to distract the thread but I bought this on a impulse and I've found it great for jobs like that.

I've used it far more than I thought I ever would. Even occasionally abuses with mole grips attached to give extra moment. Also have just seen this which looks just as useful:
