Cabriolet Petrol filler pipe

#1 Post by pauldavies » Sun Apr 04, 2021 5:38 pm

The petrol filler pipe on my 1996 Rover 200 cabriolet is rusty and is leaking !
Rimmer Bros only stock new pipes for saloons, it seems
Can any one help source a new pipe for a cabriolet or a good secondhand one?
Or is it possible to modify a saloon pipe to fit?
Any advice would be really welcome
Thanks
Paul

As far as I know you can't get any new ones , what saloon are you talking about ? I also reconditioned these pipes i have one early type that is very good no holes and ready for zinc plating and two later ones that have been repaired and plated , I have never sold a repaired one as yet but have been running one on my cabby for 2 years now no issues .
Thay are getting hard to find .
