Did you get there? I looked the vehicle up again to day to help another enquiry - it's still listed as available!

Re: Hello from Lincs - 216 SLI

Despite your reservations, it looks a lot more presentable than many!
That paint shade looks like 'White Gold'. As it's not particularly common, I think you'd have trouble finding a replacement wing which didn't need a repaint.

I'd say the car's lucky it found someone so able to tend to its needs.

Re: Doors Plastic Sheeting

It would amount to discarding the moisture barrier. As 3-door door cards have a tendency to go soggy anyway, I wouldn't want to risk accelerating the process.

Are the connectors beneath the under bonnet fuse box known to be venerable? :sad
I have experienced people on their knees beside their Rovers, but whether worship was involved I could not say.

Here on my MacBook Pro, Firefox displays fine, Safari does not. Safari's developer tools reveal that the images are downloaded, but they don't get rendered.

Re: 400 at the cube factory

Not sure I'm going to make it this week but will try. Does anybody know if the 414 front sub-frames will be the same as my 1.6 K series Tourer? At least the bonnet's a 4-bolt job, quicker than any of mine were! I'm not sure you'll find a better one. The subframe is plain i.e. devoid of any stabilis...

Re: 400 at the cube factory

Strange that I recalled that a Nightfire 400 was in play last year, but forgot it was me who started a thread about it here! I paid it a visit today, spent 5 1/2 hours with it, so it no longer looks like its previous photos! I've had the wings, which have localised rust bubbles, but thankfully solid...

Re: 400 at the cube factory

Wings and most of the interior for me, plus bits and bobs around the engine. Engine bay looks mint, so quite likely enthusiast-owned and I wonder why it hasn't been recognised by anyone here. I'm solo, so can't satisfy my hankering for subframes, though hate to see them lost. Stuff needs to be dropp...

Re: 400 at the cube factory

Just phoned them. It's on the yard awaiting its first vultures.

I'm going up tomorrow morning, hoping it's not rainy|windy|frosty. Anyone else going to be about?

Re: 400 at the cube factory

That had been on their 'Future Breakers' list for over a month now. I enquired about it and all they would say is that it was awaiting an insurer's decision. Days are even shorter now to get there and pull what I want! (Manual door cards.) Their Rovers don't hang about long. Hmm. Wonder if the weath...

Re: 216 Cabriolet passenger windscreen wiper failed

First move would be to take the arm off, clean out any debris and reassemble.
If that failed, then a new arm would be simplest - if you can find one!

It's unlikely that the spindle is worn, since that is steel, and the arm is die cast alloy.

Re: Door vents - never seem to blow anything

They are part of the demister ducting, so only work when the output knob is set to demist.
