    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    Learn something new everyday! Thanks Vern. Appreciate you pointing those out John. A good idea to reseal quattro, thanks as well. Had a heck of a time lining up the three front screws due to the tiny holes poked through the leather cover, couldn't be bothered to enlarge them. Don't think I got...

    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    Thank you John, managed to get the quarter panels installed today, wasn't pretty, first was harder than the second. Wedged in very tight behind rear window trim, one is higher than the other but acceptable. Only saw phillips screws. Will post a photo or two to celebrate my major achievement. On...

    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    Good suggestion but I find it much easier to just buy the fancy bits rather than tackle that mystery leak! Then there's those 200 quid mud flaps with the fancy insignia I bought...sigh

    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    Thanks for the response Harvey. Will have to think about that. I also ordered a seat base so will at least need to remove that part. Like I mentioned, everyone knows these cars are best left to the handy.

    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    Now, that makes me feel better. I am just being "forward thinking" by putting the quarter panels on a Series 1. I just love the look of vinyl? Thanks all, from a novice in the states. Talking about the one i just bought up in Washington state still listed on the Rover Club of Canada site, Arden...

    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    I thought so, let me tell you about the time I exploded my other one by repairing a fuel leak with crazy glue! Some people should just not be trusted with these precious cars.

    Ha, it is my car, so why not. I like the look so we'll call it a "modification." Cheers for the replies.

    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    Would it be wrong to install the vinyl quarter panels on a 1968 2000 auto? According to the ebay listing they were on the later models. Thanks for the advice.

    I am thinking of adding the black vinyl quarter panels to my 1968 2000 auto. Is it incorrect for a Series 1? I had read they were only on the later models according to ebay seller voking2000. Thank you for the advice.

    Series 2 2000SC 'Strip' Speedo Problems

    My NADA 2000 SC Auto speedometer went out suddenly with a screeching sound. I have read many of the forum discussions regarding this topic and believe I need to start with replacing the cable although I fear trying to get my hamfists into tight spaces. I am not able to find a LH auto version...

    Driving with an automatic

    Just drove a BW35 2000 over a 1000 km (750 mi) home after purchase. Kept it D the whole way, even over long grades up and down. Was afraid to do anything different, not having any experience. Drove slow and steady (ok, very slow uphill) but didn't shift up noticeably much. I seem to be missing a...

    Yet Another Rookie Move

    Thank you both for taking the time to reply to my question. I have not noticed any separation in the reservoir so maybe I lucked out. Your response suggest the need to contact the original owner if possible to see if he remembers what he used. Both your expertise and kindness is appreciated!

    Yet Another Rookie Move

    Hoping one of the talented forum members can tell me if if there is a way to determine what type of brake fluid is in the reservoir? The previous owner of my '69 TC2000 told me the vehicle takes Dot 4 or Dot 5 and I added Dot 5 thinking it was a higher number so must be better! Come to find out...

    I sold the red P6 to Rick Stewart up in Arcata. He was a good choice to take over but as usual I bought very high and sold very low! At least it got a good home. Excited to see what I can come up with for the white one. Thanks again.
