BACKGROUND

This was my WBOD for 2016 > 2017.
Brilliant runner for the winter, started on the button, great heater, 50mpg and comfy dizzling commuter for over 3000 miles.
Then MOT expired, the sills I tore to pieces with a stick, bought a Rover 420 as SBOD instead and it has sat behind my gates since. Didn't want to get rid as there are only 68 left with this engine !

COLLECTION THREADAGE

Bit pointless but I might as well for my own amusement. I didn't get round to putting the thread at the time, so here, proper belately, it is

AS IT IS NOW

The same, but rustier and slightly grubbier. Alloys went into the shed to keep/sell

Moving house soon so must go. It is up and running and driving, but most would see it as a breaker. It has
- XUD 1.8 Intercooled Turbo with CAV pump
- Water tight, oil tight, never overheated, etc..
- It's in JRG.
- Good gearbox, much clutch.
- Good doors, boot lid, bonnet (but that got a dink).
- All glass, working sunroof, working windows, working mirrors.
- Good bumpers front rear.
- Beige AS dashboard.
- It's in JRG.
- All anciliaries, I did say it was running.
- WORKING CLOCK.
- Crumbly giffer-style filled arches all round (not by me).
- Service book, receipts, V5C in my name.
- It's in JRG.


WHERE I AM AT

Sill and arch repair panels are readily available for not-a-lot, but Wife said NO.
Car Take Back said YES with offer of £91 last week.

Offered on here! As engine ideal for that Austin Maxi conversion you have in the pipeline.

£71 to autoshiter? Yes it will drive onto a trailer or drag on a frame ok. The £20 difference I will pay into the AS coffers.
Will have to go whole though, as I have yet another car to get out the garage and fuss/sell that as well.

Bedfordshire, just west of M1 jn 11.

What I really really cherry on top hope for, is someone with sparky stick talent (and time) to sort it and thus I get the promise of first refusal repurchase come next WBOD, which by then I should have moved house and put life back in order

Yes it's cheap as I've had some good turns off this forum recently and (in journalist Keith Adams' words) want to 'pass on the Karma' (insert daft Nokia 6110 era smiley here)

R8 in 400 flavour is on my want list but not now sadly.

Nearside and offside sills and arches:

Both front wings are filled along the edge too but they are bolt on.  Could just be tidied up.

 

Turrets all good

Boot floor all good

Box sections up front all good

 

One eBay seller sells sill skin + arch, inc post, for £65 per side

If it was closer I'd be all over it but I'm not sure I can justify the transport costs of getting it up here, I think I can get a hold of a set of rear arches and sills for free from the borders if I was to take it on.

HHnnnnnnnnnnnnngngngngnnnnn. I think I've driven just about everything with an XUD in it *except* a Rover 200/400 series. Really would love to have this, but current circumstances say I really can't.

I'd even be able to do the weldage on it.

I missed out on a XUD Turbo 418 for £350 one lady owner, Nightfire red an' all. Dithered because it went on sale at a time when I was fiscally challenged. When I finally had scraped the cash together the bugger literally sold it on the same day I was rich* again.

 

If anyone can, Tom can. Then he can sell it to me. Or swap it for a Cruiser.... oh, hang on....

Oh fuck it then I'll have it. Can't lose at £50

Even though I have no time, space or inclination to drive down south, this does appear to have my name on it.

It may get fixed or it may get broken but either way it won't be get weighed in and wasted.

The price is hardly the issue.

I have no need for this car and I have no time to do the welding in the foreseeable future. It is miles from me. £50 makes it more tempting but I was rather hoping another shiter who may actually need it would save it.

I hope this explains my 'tempted' post....
