Very clean R100 there, makes me want black carpet even more now!

Here's mine, currently off road for arch repair (best catch it before the rust has a chance to set in) and a bit of respray work where some muppet decided to drive down the side of it in the work carpark grrrrr

Craig, looking good
I notice a footwell lamp, how did you wire that in to work when all the doors open,

I've got one from a metro turbo to fit but but not sure how best to do it, i fould the blue connecoter where all the door switch wires goes, is it just a power and then earth it to there so it comes on with each door?

Yup got em on both cars, useful and adds more flashing lights to the interia

All neatly wired apart from right at the end where I've hidden the wire behind the passenger sunvisor and then the display is mounted on the front of the roof light casing.

Hmm I got a spare boot light I was gonna mount behind the centre console, that gives me an idea...

Here is my beloved British Racing Green that now has developed a terrible noise in the rear suspension (the bigger spring on the left side was out of place, how? I don't know... mystery... I suspect that something is broken/unwelded on the main transversal bar - don't know the right name in English...).




Besides that, that's the car that I love to drive, maybe more than my (familiar) Rover 45 1.4 Connoisseur Hatchback (65k miles and, imagine! , still with the original HG, it has always been a very boring car... nothing very wrong happens with it).




As you see, this a Metro 1.1 for you but here (in Portugal) all the K's have been named Rover Series 100 since the beginning (1990 +or-). So, this is a real Rover 111 SL 5 doors, for us.




It shows now 44k miles on the odometer but they can also be 88k or 66k, who knows?, because I bought it as a second hand car last December (after selling my nice white 111 SL 3 doors with 155k miles and HGF @ 113k miles), well... not exactly second hand, let's say fourth...

It's being resurrected by me and it's looking better now:





with a little help from my friend:








Only the driver's door was working correctly...




The cooling system came like this...




But what a nice sound comes from here:

Good to see you went ahead with the plans R118 GTA - l remember you posting on Fez about it a while back. Not all the styling is to my usual tastes but that looks really good, well thought out

Hi there, I have some secondary ones around the door , they are from the square shape nissian Sunny . Then the one between the front and rear is a felt like one from a Mondeo which runs along the top of the mondeos door frame. The other bits you can see are just black foam strips.

Regards

Craig

I will try and get some pics of the seals around the door.

Metro GTi 16v MPi

Bought for spares (interior,wheels roll bars etc) but took pity on it given it's had an eldery couple cosset it since 6months old until it failed MOT last year



Now got to find another to put the missing bits back on! If anyone's got a rough/dead Gti or really good BRG R100 with dead motor I'd like to hear from them

This is the full fat 105bhp model - claimed 0-60 8.6 secs or something? has anyone made a quicker 1400cc yet, even 16 years after?
