Rear suspension bushes and cam-cover gasket ordered from Rimmers at trade prices. We'll collect them from them at the show, so no delivery costs :D

Re: Rover 200 "The Graduate" launch TV ad now on our YouTube channel

Some more still to come :cool Did you do these John, off master tapes? Have they been digitally restored to some degree? - they're pretty good quality (I notice the audio has been cleaned up a lot... or replaced with the actual song recording). A friend did these from the original tapes using a TV ...

Re: 2019 Restoration Show Centrepiece Charity Cabriolet

Also, there is a big gap between the hood's outer skin and the inner when folding the hood. It is possible that all the internal attachments (elastic straps?) may not have been made when the outer skin was replaced. Has anybody got any info on how and where they attach or could take some photos whil...

Post thanks Paul; I take it that the car park passes change daily so are valid to get out once only?
