2 approaches come to mind
first .... get a new lock, I looked on WINS Electrical and saw some interesting items, might be the solution
second ..... over the last 40 years of owning cars I have unwittingly come across ignition keys for previous cars that I owned stashed in places I had...
I have just been into Halfords and seen their 3 choices of anti freeze, OAT or Silicate or Xstream
according to Halfords, (above) cars made before 1998 should have the Silicate one
if you were IN Halfords and had just those 3 choices, which would you choose for a 1970s P6 Rover?
I think a lot of us come across the situation "now I have to slam the door hard to close it. Is there a way to adjust the door?" can you sort it yourself?
this is what happened to me a few days ago and I wasnt fitting a new door seal , it just happened
here is my solution and a lot of this you...
AlpinAir is still going strong, last year my P6 was in there 3 weeks of the summer having the latest air Con enstalled, see the pictures of my P6 interior which do not look like Penguin's, mine has a Radio sandwiched in between the Air con grills and the Air Con controls
I know auto P6s before...

Commodore 64 all the way for us back in 1985, love that, it had a snazzy tape drive the lot and later... we got the 1510 floppy drive for it too
but what about this Rover 800? only 500 left in the UK!! who had one? :cool: it must count as a classic Rover

I think my Dad had a Tiger 90 and fancy the bloke making the effort to travel back and show you the bike, you must have been chuffed but here is a shot of my younger brother on his AJS and next a shot of my 2 brothers together in our driveway

cheers mrtask. yeah it took ages to get done because there was a van parked there stopping me from parking up in the same place:rolleyes:
I kept popping by "Van still in place" ...... finally went there one day ... Van was gone ... GO GO GO
only thing is, the MKIII Cortina is long gone o_O
that is me right there aged about 20 and totally chuffed with my P6, I thought the world of it:p
but on the subject of putting up photos of chassis number and engine number , after having read from Ban, I think we should refrain from doing that, I haven't posted any chassis number and engine...

talking of '...
agreed and the problem of ' posts going into the wrong areas' is pretty trivial in my view however as it has been broached......
moving posts from the "wrong areas" to the right areas is beyond the capabilities of regular members but the responsibility of our Admins and Moderators, we have...
personally my first thought is to ask for the Registration Document and check that against the chassis number and engine number, for me, that is STEP 1
I was going to buy a P6 from a guy up in Scotland about 10 years ago, I told various people I was going up to Scotland to look it over and 2 of...
