The View From The Windscreen

I thought that it might be a nice idea to post some photos looking through the Rover windscreen. A view that we can share showing our part of the world and what we see.

So to start the ball rolling, here are some photos from New South Wales, Australia.

The first three photos are in the town of Orange during Autumn 2011.






This photo is along the Lachlan Valley Way heading towards the town of Cowra on Monday just gone.


And finally a view of the instruments taken just after the above photo.


I look forward to seeing your photos through the windscreen.. :D

Liking the rural pics around Orange. Lovely spring colours
I am impressed with your dial readings too esp the oil and temp gauges

Thanks, Gerald. Those photos in Orange were actually from Autumn 2011. They do read nicely don't they :)
I run an 82-degree thermostat (Calorstat - Made in France by Vernet). Easily the best thermostat I have ever used. No holes or jiggle pin, just a bleed notch to expel trapped air.

Interesting re the thermostat. My P6 runs around midway plus going by my gauge. Are you saying she will run in the lower section of the green on the Vernet?

There are a number of factors that can influence the temperature that your engine runs at, assuming the gauge is reading correctly. Don't use tap water to make your coolant. Don't run a mixture at more than 50% concentration unless the ambient air temperature drops below -18 degrees C. Flush the system as per the coolant recommendations, and make sure the radiator cap is 15psi and sealing correctly. You can tell by going for a drive so the engine is at normal operating temperature, open the bonnet and feel the pressure in the top hose. It should be very firm and not easy to compress. If this is not the case, change the radiator cap. Other than that, from my experience, thermostats over the years have not been much chop. If you change yours Gerald, you won't be disappointed.

On taking delivery of a spanking new screen washer bottle and pump this afternoon, I was hopeful I might soon be able to clearly see where I was driving once again. Perhaps I might even take a photo of the view through my windshield, I mused. Alas, it seems the detergent escapes from every union between pump and jets, without actually reaching the screen. Still, the exhaust manifolds got a nice dousing. Hey ho. :rolleyes:

That is a lovely scene Gargo! Whereabouts is it?

It's looking over Dundrum Bay to the Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland, Google Maps Hence the Percy French lyrics (The Mountains o' Mourne)
For the Van Morisson fans, it is just over the hill from Coney Island, (Avalon Sunset).

One of my favorite driving areas, as never not much traffic on the roads.
