The mirror cap is really annoying though. May be worth getting a couple of spares painted whilst the bodyshop still has the paint to hand. Frustrating times, I'm sure, but with your new home and Bananas new suit of clothes, you're still winning .

Water is coming via the rear window and side trim and no doubt the lights are adding to the mix. The noise only comes on when the blower is on, other than that she is quiet.
The mirror cap was down to me thinking I would not need any help getting into the garage. Folded the mirror in driving in and then flipped the mirror out for some reason, then reversed and instead of stopping and folding the mirror back in I tried to do it whilst the car was rolling back.

If it was not for the move into the house taking my mind off of it then I think I would have just given up.

I feel for you Bob.
But, it is only a setback which you will look back on.

One way or another it will get sorted, as it is a very special car.

Sorry to hear this Bob, I did wonder myself when viewing the strip-down photos how likely would it be that certain areas would leak once rebuilt. MG Rover certainly didn't make it easy for us owners to keep our cars watertight did they?

It becomes very difficult when carefully stripping an old car for respray, even more difficult when putting everything back together. It would have benefited the garage to have ordered all new trim clips and paid close attention to the design weakness which is all so very common on these motors.

The noise from the front area, I wonder if something is fouling the fan blades Bob? Do you know if the garage had to take off the front slam panel etc, could they have incorrectly re-fitted or bent the panel in so way. The fan blades do run very close to the edges of the slam panel, its just a thought.

I'm sure it will all get sorted in no time Bob, chin up fella.

Cool We are booked in, again..........................

............................................... on Tuesday next at 08.30.
The leaking from the rear window is coming through the trim, which will be removed again. Dried out and cleaned then re-fitted tighter. The side trims are loose so have to come off to be re-fitted. The rear light seals will be rechecked to see if they are letting water in.

We also have paint issues that I have now found out, the moving house has stopped me from really examining the finish properly.
There are places surrounding the boot and bonnet where you can see the undercoat. Along with the boot hinges, not that noticeable but still there. Inside the filler flap has not been painted properly.

The noise from the engine bay stopped on itís own. Thought to be a leaf catching the fan. Took Banana for a 100 mile round trip on Sunday and there was no noise when the fan was on.

And the mirror cap will be resprayed, but that was down to me.
