It will be interesting to learn if PVA is up to the task.  That fabric is appalling, I'm disappointed I don't have a shirt made of it.  Nice job.

Brilliant,good to see an early R3 still around.

This thread also reminds me of going with my Dad to collect various old cars (mainly Renaults) in the 70's & 80's,no mobiles back then,so each trip seemed like an adventure  :-)

Love it and the headliner. Need to do something similar in the ZR as the headling is rank.  Original owner must have been safety conscious to spec the optional passenger airbag. I'm pretty sure it was an option until almost the end of R3 production.

Thanks guys, wasn't sure if it would be a bit too Retro Rides for this place. I've been putting off sorting the headliner in the 405 for ages. The man maths was that this one couldn't be much worse and could fairly easily be replaced if I made a pigs ear of it. If the PVA holds out then I'll do the 405 though I think something a little more subtle would be better there.

Its been a really nice day here, this went far better than I expected. The kids have been fairly nice and Hairnet, DW and Rachel have called round for a cuppa and natter.

That headlining and doorcards are class. Must be a project drive thing as my 75 doesn't have it.

My early turquise 214Si had a passenger air bag and wind up windows, it was originally registered to Enterprise (or another rental agency) so I doubt the options were ticked. My ex Wuvum 25 GSI registered about 2 weeks before Rover went bump had aircon, leather, all round electric windows but no passenger air bag, although by that point Rover had got suitably embarrassed by the cubby hole that replaced the air bag on the prefacelift dash that it had an airbag shaped blanking panel... I wonder if the air back stopped being standardish on the transfer from 200 to 25?

I have a Rover with saggy headlining. I'm going to try out self adhesive carpet. It's very thin and apparently sticks well. I've seen it done on an XJ40 and it looks ok.

I've used that kind of carpet for stuff on my camper, it came with the world's stickiest spray glue and is ace, it would stick to a rigid headliner no probs.

No worries, I'm intrigued about Tom's Rover though.

I'm going to try and change the oil and coolant this week. Oil can happen here but coolant will need to come out at work as they have a hose and no cats.

I've used normal drawing pins but they randomly fall out and stick in your arse when you get in. Dipping them in superglue first worked better

Coolant should be easy to change. I believe these have a total loss system. Not sure if it works like two stroke but you could try putting some antifreeze in with the petrol?

Nice! Never realised you bought a Rover 214. Looks lovely. Might have a spare wheel trim somewhere and a bookpack for these if I can find it.

It's a shame about that wheel trim, it was there when I sold the car to my neighbour but she's definitely of the 'a car is a tool and nothing else' camp, so won't have cared, or possibly even noticed, when it went missing.

These are cheap, wonder if they would fit?

I finally got around to buying a wheeltrim for this last weekend. The new owner fitted it while I changed the coolant today. I suppose the best time to find mayo is when you've already sold the car. I offered him a refund but he wouldn't take it, I'm sure it will be fine.
