Re: P2 Seats

Hi Tony Mine is a 39 DHC 14 so definitely different form the tourers. Picture of the footwell trays in my spares attached - a bit lacy but mostly sound. My hesitation is just that after repairing them and fitting them the carpet wont fit any more and I am not quite ready to replace all the floor car...

Re: P2 Seats

Thank you all for your generous advice. It sounds as though I am going to be forced into a DIY solution although I will try the Mikes just in case they are into miracles. Another steep learning curve - a choice between bending ply or bending sheet metal! By the way anyone any idea why that bottom sl...

P2 Seats

I finally bought a hide (yes a whole hide- no choice about that) and the leather worker started on reupholstering the front seats. The first was fine when opened up but the second has exposed some serious woodworm damage. Fortunately it seems to be almost confined to the very bottom of the back wher...

Re: Drive It Day 2021

Well I went on my own. Did a tour around West Cornwall on a beautiful day. But I saw precious few other classics - 1 TR, Lotus Elan and an Austin 7 I think - but not together. I did hear the night before that the local Alvis Club had organised a run for all comers but it started in Newquay and given...

Drive It Day 2021

I have just been reminded that tomorrow 25th April is Drive It Day. I have not seen any mention on the RSR website or in the latest magazine for some reason so please spread the word and remind everyone to get out there tomorrow!

Re: 1929 10/25 Jumping out of 3rd gear

Now I must admit I know very little about any gearbox and nothing at all about the 10/25 one but doesn't your diagram imply that there should be a spring and ball underneath the selector shaft? Otherwise why would the spring size recess be there? Perhaps there should be 2 springs and balls, one on t...

Re: drophead 2000

Actually I think I prefer the look of this car with 4 doors rather than 2. But what on earth is holding it up do you think? Is it an amateur conversion ie just chop the roof off?

Vintage Lucas headlight glass 501598 in original wrapping for Rover Riley or Hillman etc

Lucas 501598 headlamp glass unused, I presume, in original wrapping. The contemporary Lucas catalogue shows these lenses as used on Rover 14 & 16 from 1937/38, also Riley 9hp 1938 and Hillman 16 and 20hp 1936/37 and possibly others. These are 8 ½” diameter lenses presumably for a 9” overall rim etc....

Re: 1934 Rover 12 headlight bulbs

Thats interesting. So are the lenses of the headlights different for one having 2 filaments and the other only one? I have restored mine from the 50's adapter dipping conversions to the original full size lenses designed for single filament bulbs but kept the dual dipping bulbs. This means I dont ge...

Re: 1934 Rover 12 headlight bulbs

I wonder if that bulb is original? On my P2 the headlights had a single filament bulb and this went out when the dip was switched turning on the pass lamp. The effect must have been pretty inadequate I think! P2 headlights I know have often been changed to twin filament dipping bulbs later in life. ...
