This is always a good show with a wide range of different exhibits. The classic car section seems to grow every year.

I'll pop along for a mooch. Anyone else thinking of attending?
A tip rather than a how to - a small cable tie around the tensioner before fitting it reduces the risk of dropping it down the inside of the engine. Snip it off once you've finished. Also cram bubble-wrap into the gaps around the timing chain to catch anything you do drop. (I prefer this to rags...
Interesting work there.
Just a suggestion, but start a new thread with a more accurate title, in the appropriate section? Folks with no interest in lights may be missing your posts. It might also help anyone searching in the future.
Those headrests are known as "ET" type and are worth a small fortune. I'd suggest that you ask for an honest valuation here before accepting the first offer. Or check ebay's completed listings for an idea how much they sell for.
Only 4 of the light lenses look Rover P6 to me, and aren't worth much.
... you'd risk using on a 240mile round trip to drop your daughter at the airport for a 4am check-in.
Apart from thick fog hiding the sign to Terminal 3, all went smoothly. Averaged 60mph and didn't need to stop for fuel.
How has your P6 impressed you lately?
You do need to be careful buying Land Rover parts. Prices are often too low to provide decent quality. At a minimum you'll need to strip down a master cylinder sold that cheap and clean out the swarf before risking it on the car. You might also find yourself replacing the seals with better...
I agree with all that.
I'd find Tobacco Leaf rather a challenge too, though polished up on a good car it can look nice. Personally I wouldn't worry about the 'originality police', P6 circles don't seem to be afflicted with them as badly as some other models. The need to paint all the door jams...
Best wishes from me too Rich.
I do have some experience of SQL so could, at a pinch, help out, and am willing to step up. But, and it's a big but, I've come to the conclusion that I have some form of attention deficite disorder (only took half a century to figure out) which makes me lousy at...
Or find a better used one. I think they're most prone to rust when the car is unused for a long period. I resurrected my P6 after it had been sitting in a garage for 15 years and the tank had a couple of inches of rusty sludge in the bottom which was always going to be a problem. But the tank...
I haven't checked the P6 but on a P4, if you know where to look there's a special hole that you can poke a screwdriver through and flip the catch. Stands to reason that the feature would be carried across later models.
(I only know the above because I bought a long unused P4 last week which had...
I've just removed an identical sounding switch from a Rover P4. This one had a black wire to earth and another linking into the low tension lead between the coil and distributor. So when "on", the LT circuit would be earthed preventing a spark.
