Hi Rod, not quite as exiting when I saw all the parts that went with the car, a friend of mine Brad has an LDV Van and helped me to fetch the car and the parts, we filled that van with parts.
I have cancelled 2 orders I was going to bring in from the UK as I have boxes and boxes of new parts mostly still new in Austin Rover and Rimmer Brothers boxes and packets, some items I have 2 or 3 of the same thing which is great as I have 3 Rovers
, items like 3 pairs of brand new headlights, 2 pairs front indicator units , complete walnut wood trim for the doors and dash, my race car needs that as the wood has started to delaminate, brand new steering rack and pump, 4 sets of control arms, switches brakes and the list goes on indicator/wiper complete units, and the list goes on. There is even some series 1 parts so I can use them on the 82 Rover SDS that I also have
I complied a quote on the Rimmer Brothers website of the parts that are still available and ended up with just on GBP4,000 and that's before shipping and duties etc to SA, so at the current exchange rate it is over R100k worth of parts. some of the parts are no longer available anymore so I have not added those values.
Will take a whole lot of pics this weekend as well as putting up some new phots on the race car, the body prep is nearly done so the paintwork will be done soon
So for R30k for the car and everything Christmas came early
