Thanks Dave, I will bear all that in mind.

By the way just looking back at the start of this thread because of Mr Fastback's comments, I see that the old photobucket pics are displaying again. Have they reversed the previous money grab attempt?

Re: Mark's 1999V 825 Sterling Auto Saloon in BRG

Cheers Mark, not quite a daily driver but not exactly 100% as cosseted as I would like all the time either.

Mk1 820 coolant pipes

Re: Mk1 Windscreen Scuttle Panel

Incidentally a Mk1 scuttle goes perfectly nicely on a Mk2. The stalks sit invisibly beneath the bonnet edge. Look closely at my V reg pics :)
