Arm Rests

I saw a thread about arm rest in the 25 and someone showed a pic of it, can anyone tell me what model it is from as i am thinking this might be a nice little upgrade so going to start ringing around scrap yards

They were from the higher spec wedge shapes and coupes. Go scrappy they should sort you one for about 15.

No they're not. I walked into a scrapyard and said "You got any armrests out an old rover", they went and got it for me. First scrappy i went to too.

At a guess I would say they come in K to R reg Wedge Rovers mate, gives you an idea what years to get them out off, use ebay as a last resort as all the lazy gits who can't be botherd going to the scrapy bid on them !!!

Always worth a laugh is you do a search for 'rover coupe/tomcat/218/220/200 breaking' and send an email to see how much postes, never go higher than 25 all in as like Richy said you can walk into a scrappy and get one for 15 !!!

You sell them on ebay then?

I'm going to get another one soon because I'm missing the bit that covers the bolts.
