    Wanted – a rubber 'thing' (!) to hold the jack in place against the nearside boot wall

    If you know the size , I reckon you would pick one up from a plumbing/pipe outlet ,in the form of a rubber gasket. I have an original I could take a measure off if no one comes up with a reply

    Replacing your Rover

    As a bloke that bought his P6 new in '72 ,this was my main driver for about ten years when I thought it was time to upgrade , so I sold it and bought in succession most of the cars I lusted after. After the novelty wore off all these different dream breeds, none really lived up to a P6...

    Rear Vinyl Quarter Panels for Series 1 2000

    What ever makes you enjoy your P6 . Cant see a problem in vinyl covering a S1 quarter panel. A bit involved getting the panel off. Was a feature on the S2 as voking2000 said

    SD1 3500SE spotted

    Looks quite smart from your pic. If its not registered [or have you blanked the plate] , it would be worth chasing for more info.

    Three Thousand Five

    Amazing that they are still in one piece. I had a nice set of "Michies" on mine for years . Unfortunately the ride was starting to be quite harsh and noisy even with 75% tread left. A tyre guy told me they had "gone off" and to try a cheaper brand seeing as I do low annual milage. I went with...

    Three Thousand Five

    When I ordered my P6 ,I ticked the 8 track tape-stereo box. Very avant- guarde. That format went out of fashion in the early 80's. Over her ownership Ive replaced my stereo with many units including Cassette and CD's. I now have a bluetooth head unit that interfaces with my Spotify Ph. app...

    Series 2 2000 Bonnet Badge

    I did one once. Carefully pulled it apart, cleaned it all up. Started painting the inside with a tiny hobby brush AND bang. The whole plastic shell exploded - well cracked apart in various places. Must have had a paint/ plastic reaction. Disappointing.

    Just as an aside- what model Montego air filters did you get or are they all models?- thanks and good luck for the future esp without a P6

    Weber carb conversion

    I know you are talking down draught ,a mate of mine had twin side draught and they were a bloody racket on the throttle .Not becoming the sedate sounds of a rV8 intake.

    Bw35 sump gasket

    "Dont overtighten the bolts" -thats a tough one without a torque wrench. I like your vaseline trick

    a minor thing, but wondered if its just me!

    Very easy to create a blow-back on these P6 things, not just the angle of the nozzle but the position of your tongue.
