    LT77 prefix 'CL' fitment

    Hi all, I'm about to purchase a LT77 gearbox with has the prefix 'CL' and suffix 'C'. As far as I can tell this means it came out of a TR7. Whilst i'm aware that the bell housing will be incorrect for the V8 in my P6 can anyone tell me if there will be any other potential fitment issues that...

    Thanks but I managed to track down a set of five Vitesse alloys which I’ve almost finished refurbishing.

    Wanted: Minilite, Vitesse or Rostyle alloys

    Thanks Chrisw. I know about the clearance issue with the 15s and would be rather hoping I got lucky and found my wheels arches accommodated them without having to do any 'modification'.

    My 3500s project - future daily drive

    Really interesting reading. Do you still work in Kingston? I occasionally use mine to go into work in Norbiton and i'm based in Hawley so it would be funny to end up in a convoy with you on the M3!

    New door seals from Scott's Old Auto Rubber

    Thanks for all the tips! Certainly lots to be thinking about when I get the car back from colin!

    New door seals from Scott's Old Auto Rubber

    Hmm, seems like there is no real 'win' here. I don't want to pay a fortune for new door seals and find that they're a complete PITA to fit and then mean the doors don't shut. I also don't really like the extreme wind noise and water leakage I have at the moment. Which is the lesser of the two...

    New door seals from Scott's Old Auto Rubber

    I sense new door seals on the horizon. @harveyp6, what do you mean by pulling the frames in? The main holes are at the bottom of the window frames where the metal 'kinks'. They're not huge holes but it would be nice to seal them all the same.

    New door seals from Scott's Old Auto Rubber

    Hi all, Whilst driving my P6 yesterday with a strong headwind at around 70 the wind noise was pretty close to terrible. I've always appreciated that the old girl is, well, old and so road noise is sort of par for the course, but it was just a bit too loud for my taste. I've also noticed that...

    Difference between high and low on the dip stick

    Probably a stupid question but can someone tell me the volume of oil that is required to go from the 'low' mark on the dip stick to the 'high' mark? I know the total oil capacity but I can't find what volume is required for going between the min and max marks. I ask as i'm trying to work out...

    Clutch change additional work

    Harveyp6 you are right, I have subsequently decided to update my 4 speed to an LT77. So as you say, much of this work is irrelevant now. I did have a good read of that article and it's certainly impressive!

    Can he fix it? Yes he can!

    Looks like i've picked the right man (Colin) to convert my 's' to a LT77 box then! He's going to have a look over the car when it arrives which i'm more than a little nervous of as I don't want to end up with a list of jobs as long as my arm! :oops:

    Clutch change additional work

    Thanks for that, is the thrust bearing the same as the release bearing or are they two completely separate things?

    Clutch change additional work

    Hi all, I'm planning on having the clutch changed on my car as a result of a noisy release bearing and a fairly high biting point. My question is actually around getting some additional work done at the same time and whether you think it should add significantly to the expense. I'd like the...

    Berkshire, Hampshire, Surrey Specialist?

    Thanks Falkor. Rung and spoke to Pash who's given me an idea for the clutch price. Rear brakes they don't want to quote for until they've seen the state of them which I guess seems fair.

    Berkshire, Hampshire, Surrey Specialist?

    Hi all, I'm looking for a specialist in/around the Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire boarder area. I'm base between Camberley and Farnborough and need someone to do a new clutch as well as sorting my rear brakes. Can anyone recommend anyone? I'm familiar with Duncan Gill but his garage is in a...

    Boot rack or roof rack

    I would love the original Rover roof rack but they're like hens teeth to find and when you do, seem to fetch serious money. The boot rack seemed like a way of getting something roughly period correct that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

    Boot rack or roof rack

    Hi all, I’m planning a long road trip to Germany in April and will no doubt have a large about of stuff. What are people’s opinions on boot racks vs roof racks. I’ve come across some nice wooden slated boot mounted ‘racks’ and thought they looked quite nice (I don’t have the touring kit). Has...

    Fitting door speakers

    Seems like this subject is a fairly divisive one! I would have gone with rear parcel shelf speakers like Graeme suggested but as I have the large rear headrests and also seat belts the space on the back shelf is now very limited. Perhaps the best short term solution is to get a decent Bluetooth...

    Fitting door speakers

    Hi all, I’d like to fit some decent speakers in the front (and if possible the rear) door cards. Has anyone got experience of doing this? I have a couple of questions: How do you run the wiring for the door speakers as there are no holes which cables in modern cars run through? Do the...

    Rostyles - what are they worth?

    Thanks Phil. I've found them for £31 a wheel, he apparently has a few sets so i'm hoping to pick the best of the bunch from him. I do like the look of yours and their matt appearance. They will need re-painting, i'm just not sure whether I go for more of a gloss finish or not. Decisions decisions.

    Rostyles - what are they worth?

    Looking to buy some Rostyle wheels which are in average condition. I'm not 100% sure whether they're 14 or 15 inch yet, but could someone give me a guide as to what is a reasonable price to pay for a set of 4 (without tyres) in average condition?

    Earliest 3500s

    Ahh very interesting! I didn’t know there were these cars still on the road. Do we know if any of the super early production ‘s’ models going?
