No more leaks! Well not from the sunroof anyway - thanks to this stylish replacement item from Bo...

What do you call this style? Is is 'grunge'?

If you're going to paint anything I'd paint the rest of the motor to match the roof - that colour has class ! Come to think of it I may have some in the shed somewhere if it's not dried up :)

Love the contrasting red! I might try that myself...

So is this roof section from one of your old motors then? What goes around comes around :D

WRT paint - I have some very classy surplus 'Bronze Green' in the shed that I have been saving to paint the whole car one day.
Had it 7 years now and it is still brilliant stuff, I painted the front of my trailer with it last month, and it sticks like sheet to a blanket - even on top of wiped-down oiliness... :0

Rog, I think Dave is referring to the colour which is 2000 onwards Class tractor green.
Roof came from a T plate RR I bought near Blackpool, so probably not Dave's.

Tsk...

I THINK it was called Warwick Green and was only available for a couple of years (79-81). It was called other things too but most of those names weren't particularly complimentary.

I don't think it was a particularly common/popular colour, which to my mind makes it more appealing than the ubiquitous boring bronze green.

Actually that Black and White one was chucked years ago. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Since then he'd had a reddish brown one one, a dark green one, a brown and green one and a blue one. :shock: :shock: :roll: :roll:

I just insulted the new roof with camping style sleep-mat using spray on Bostik - I forgot how good that stuff is - my fingers are sticking to the keys as I type...

So now it should be no more condensation either!

:D

I'm planning to do that before I put my new headlining in, who apart from Rog finds that insulting??
Cheers Nick

I assumed he thought it was an insult to hide that beautiful paint colour inside the cab ?
