I'm not sure whats there to be honest, I'll check thanks.

At this stage I am concentrating on getting the car on the road - too much cosmetic work needs to be done as yet to worry about finer trim details ... but yes, when it comes to it - keeping it as it was would be appropriate ... cheers

Funny you say lewis. I just watched the DVD and you are correct also I don't think mine had them either as there areno marks as to where they have been. Ie sticky marks strange how some got some bits but not others

New battery and wiper blades fitted. The none start was traced back to the fuel pump not working. Removed pump and stripped as far as I dare,clean the filter "bag" that was minging. Pump then powered up ok, refitted back in the tank and the car runs well again.

Note to self - dont park it up for 6 months if you want to keep your arms out of the tank

When car ready for shows you should have the genuine Rover forecourt display plates front and rear, that John gave to Pete at last meet he attendd.

Do these carry the registration mark or are they the type with the large Rover 75 logo occupying that space?
