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.

      Allegedly "There is an undercurrent going around saying that I simply lurk around AS to buy cheap shitters and sell them on for a profit and that I'm generally just a dodgy character."
       
      Have a read through this and see if that's the case.

      Well, OK, just a few brochures for sale, after having sorted through my pile over Christmas.
       
      The postage price will vary according to weight, so the prices below exclude postage - we'll sort this out in PMs. Obviously, if anyone wants more than one, I'll send them together. All are in excellent condition, with some very minor age related creases.

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am
