The Wynns RTV gasket maker looks like it has good credentials:

Re: 216 Cabriolet Honda DOHC engine

O-rings are pretty much a commodity product, so it's most unlikely that Honda designed a custom part.
If you can establish the size, then any of many suppliers could supply a suitable item in a degradation-resistant material such as Viton.

Your garage do seem to need a lot of hand-holding!

Re: 216 Cabriolet Rear Suspension trailing arm

I think Rimmers' part info notes are misleading. The lower arm assemblies do differentiate between ABS/non-ABS, but that is just a matter of a small tapped hole for a wiring loom clip.
The bushes EGP1854 and EFP3228 are common to both, according to my reading of the EPC, not as Rimmers' has it.

Re: H reg Rover 416gsi front subframe wanted

There's currently listed a 216SLi breaker at Albert Looms in Derby:

Its MoT history is still available, rear end rot, nothing mentioned about the front end.
A bit of a trek on the off-chance, but perhaps some nearer member could take a peek?

Re: R8 electric window faults

You'd give yourself the best chance if you have a wiring diagram for the model and year of your car, and a multimeter.

Re: R8 electric window faults

You did test the switch on its own when you had the door card off didn't you? I've had a wire break in the body-to-door loom on my R8. When I investigated, I found all the individual wire insulations very brittle. I would anticipate that a crack in the insulation would localise the flexing of the co...

Re: R8 HEADLIGHT LENS

Oh yes. Spent ages releasing it from a breaker 70 miles from home. Got home in the dark and rain, just carrying it into the garage when the glass let go!
OTOH, trying to remove glass from one with damaged plastics took about an hour.

Site SSL Certificate Expired?

As title. This site is getting flagged by Safari as having an expired certificate today. Another couple of sites I refer to daily have become similarly affected, but most are OK.
Anyone else seeing this? If it's a subscription problem, end of the month is tomorrow, not today!

Stunned to see so many 75, 25 and TF, and comparatively so few 200, and above all & mainly so few cabriolets... :o
Might be that the age of the 200 family 11 years ago made them particularly susceptible to the UK government's
scrappage scheme of the period.

That's the entire side though. I haven't checked with photos, but maybe, unlike the fuel filler, the radio antenna aperture did swap sides?

Re: Brakes

When I had this problem and changed the discs, the old ones had localised pitting which looked very like impurities or inclusions in the metal.
