Re: 1994 Rover 414Sli

It did. Special feature on my camera. :laughing2 I already have the repair panel I need, bought it ages ago and I'm only now at the point to do the repair. Luckily the little trim piece came off intact since they seem to be gone on a lot of cars and are tricky to source now.

Re: 1994 Rover 414Sli

Arrived at the unit a little early than planned today which meant I had some time to do some fettling before the windscreen fitters arrived. They got delayed by an hour so that gave me even more time to fettle, which was fantastic. When they arrived the only seat fitting left to do were the seat bas...

Re: 1994 Rover 414Sli

On the left, an original saloon seat brace. On the right, a cut-down hatchback seat brace. They're similar enough in the right places that they are interchangable with some jiggery-pokery of the hatchback piece. The modified hatchback piece also bolts into the existing fixing points in the saloon bo...

Re: 1994 Rover 414Sli

I did some more. First job was to finish stripping out the interior and to do that I had to start with the centre console. Mine differs from the HBOL because it's got the higher spec armrest centre console. To remove this you pop off a little plastic cover (annoying cigarette burn on mine) to get to...

Re: The Old Lady

Fitted some new mirrors, again. These are better again than the others I've had on the car, offering the best compromise of function and form so far. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1823/41620765680_2e957576f1_b.jpg https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1828/42524286915_49dd3f7e8c_b.jpg Identified a knockin...

Re: The Old Lady

Wow, I've not been updating here for a while, things have been pretty hectic. Princess has been in daily use bumbling about doing regular car stuff, frustrating me with a few issues, but mostly just being okay. Certainly not bored of it yet. I got the door repaired and back on the car. Got the wing ...

Re: 1994 Rover 414Sli

Glad I could inform and entertain! There's not much I don't know on this car now. Hey look, an update! Today I finally got to start work on the Rover. It's been a long old wait to get here. I started by emptying everything out of the car and then cracked on working out what order I needed to remove ...

Re: The Old Lady

Got some gas, then my back was bad for no reason, as it is sometimes, so the welding hasn't progressed. I did have a little moment of drama, so here's a little video.

Re: Little Purple Austin

Best to keep up with it on Autoshite.com for future updates. Today I was putting the interior back together, cleaning, and cataloguing everything ready for the new owner. Tomorrow will be more of the same I think. It should be moving down to the opposite corner of the country by the end of the month.

Re: North East & Yorkshire Area Group Meeting

Doubt I'll get over to Scarborough so I'll aim for the next meet. I only finished work about half an hour ago (even with a 2pm start that's a late finish), just one of those days, one of the downsides of self employment. Never mind, it happens. Glad to hear it sounded like a well attended meet at le...

Whoever had "still stuck working at nearly 8pm with several more hours to go", collect your winnings. Sorry guys, I failed again.

Re: r8 headlight conversion

Morettes is still the word your after, brand or otherwise, since that's what they're known as even when they're not Morettes. It's good shorthand, like how people say hoover when they mean vacuum cleaner.
