    Buying a non Rover rare classic

    Morning everyone, Can anybody vouch for Anthony Barrett/Barnfind Specialist? I’m trying to do a deal on a car unseen and delivered, obviously the current restrictions make things more open to scamming and I’m being careful not to send a deposit to somebody without knowing it’s legit. Any...

    4” spring seat adapters

    Are these any use to anyone? They’re group 4 escort parts, for 4” springs and have 2 1/16” 52.39mm x 1.5 metric internal thread which is the Bilstein shock thread, amongst others. Could perhaps be useful for coilover conversion on the rear using larger springs.. Very nicely machined aluminium...

    Porsche seats

    Bit of a strange one, but does anybody know how comfortable Boxster alcantara seats are? I’ve seen a pair for sale cheap locally and it got the cogs turning in my head. They have better neck/head support obviously and are more of a bucket racing shape which would be beneficial to my build.. I...

    Stainless V8 downpipes

    Hi all, I’ve been holding onto these for some reason, but have no intention of using on my project. Beautifully run in to remove any stainless ‘ringing’ :p I think you’d part with the best part of £300 from Wadhams for a non run in set ;) I’m unsure on Wins pricing but i’d imagine a fair bit...

    I’ve got some good lockdown day job work in the form of a large project that arrived a week ago. It’s a movie car. Was built for a movie called Adventurer:Curse of the Midas Box, starring Sam Neill. It’s also mostly made of MDF. My job is to recreate in steel/upgrade and make more...

    Wadhams free postage until end of today

    Late in the day I know, but Wadhams have free postage until end of today with discount code FD20. Since their postage is usually rather expensive and you have to agree to pay before even knowing what the cost is, this is a good thing :p I ordered both boot top link repair panels, the more...

    Rare Cast Aluminium BW35 pan

    I’m just floating this idea before I finish working on it. Originally sourced from Harvey some years ago for my project, a rare chunky cast aluminium sump pan for the BW35. This fitted my ‘72 V8 car with no issues, and provides a much better seal with no possibility of deforming the bolting lip...

    Jaguar 4ha diff 3.54 ratio non powerlok

    Jaguar 4ha differential. Tried and tested upgrade from the Rover unit, providing a much stronger rear end if adding power. If used with a V8 this has the favourable ratio of 3.54 for better acceleration providing the car’s gearing is high enough for cruising, ie overdriven top gear with ZF box...

    You don't see these everyday

    This might be of interest to somebody restoring. Genuine Rover Inner Chassis Rail closing panel (from back seats to boot) I've never seen one for sale, but this part of the car usually doesn't take the brunt of the corrosion. Useful for a rear ended crash damage repair perhaps Rover P6/P6B...

    Trailing arm front bush diameters

    So I've been reminded today that there are 2 sizes of front bush, and 2 sizes of trailing arm front eyes. When/why did the arm change? I always presumed series 2 V8 cars would have the larger items. My car is a '72 V8 and has the smaller version, and it is significantly smaller. Will the larger...
