I've found the Halfords blanks too small in my opinion. Still looking for some the right size or it could be Suzublu's chrome strip idea employed.

Simon - I'm afraid the universal standard and class of the typical Rover driver has been diluted somewhat over the years. There are even those who will stuff a thermostat in an unintended orifice and call it an upgrade. I find the shame of being associated with such people almost unbearable at times.

This thread just reminded me of something I should have posted>

They are a little on the small side as it's possible to see the elongated hole if one looks carefully.

Do you have a top-hose thermostat upgrade? If so, why not go for a matching upgrade on the original blanking caps - silicon bath sealant.

Originally CNF 100 040 (cap, roof rack blanking) for a set of four but this part number seems to be obsolete now.

Austin Garages is selling DYB 100 121, which is confirmed by X-Part, at £10.95 for a set of five (eBay item no. 193764809783) Why five? These have a marginally bigger overall diameter than the originals. I'd be interested to hear if they are a better fit than the Halfords generic item.

I hope this helps Dave.

Simon
