I'm going to throw my hat in the ring on this one.  It's not exactly what I'm after as a Rover replacement but it comes pretty close and given the condition of the rest of it I'd be more than happy to put the work in to get it all Heidel-standard again.  Would also be insanely useful come house move time, if we ever actually managed to buy a sodding house.

Had my Visa broken into a while ago via the back quarter window, broke the plastic around the steering wheel & bent to F#~ۤ my new steering wheel which I had just put on a few days before.

I'e had a similar experience in Tipton years ago with a 405 but they did less damage, must be a better* class of criminal round there? I bought the car for 30 quid so as you can imagine it wasn't exactly a minter and they still tried to have it away!

 

There's a lot to be said about arming the steering lock on any old car (except ones made of cheese like Novas) every time you park it, that's what defeated the twats last time as they tried to slide hammer the ignition, were defeated and fucked off. 

 

Hopefully someone saves it as it look like a pretty straight motor.

Low level IQ in that area. It's been that way for a while.

Intelligence has been pretty much bred out round there....

 

It may also be that some people just get a kick out of damaging / destroying things.

 

Is Xm door glass that difficult to find?

Maybe in some areas but in that part of the country there is a well established history of stealing, joyriding and then torching cars.

 

Glad to hear you've found the bits to get the car repaired.

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      My attempt at living a shite free life has failed. Trawling e bay/ gumtree again etc but I thought I'd put out a wanted ad here. I've been browsing the for sale threads, but is there anything your thinking of moving on and would like to keep in the fold and have a hassle free sale? I'd consider anything but something fundamentally ok with a bit of MOT would be great. There is a bit of a strange condition- unusually I'm free this Wednesday and rarely at all other times- so being able to collect during the day this Wednesday would be perfect.

      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
