Sterling coupe sunroof - silly offers invited!

Post by NigelK » Fri Jun 15, 2018 4:36 pm

I have a spare glass roof panel that I bought from Sterling Automotive in Eastbourne, but as 'Edgar' (my 820A Sterling Coupe) retired to a new home in the countryside some years ago, this is superfluous. It was one of those purchases that seemed like a good idea at the time, and truth be told, I'd forgotten it was in the attic. I judge the seal serviceable but not pristine.

Rimmers tell me they don't have any, having sold off the last stock some time back. I'd rather it go to someone who'd use it rather than dump it in the non recyclable skip at my local recycling centre, so silly offers for a good home invited. I'm in Greenwich, and collection is preferred.

Thanks
Nigel

Is it just the glass panel you've got Nigel? Or the whole roof assembly?

Here's a link to the relevant Rimmers catalogue page :

https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-GRID004610

I think i might have had one of the last sunroof seals they had in stock a few months ago, i also have a complete sunroof assembly for a Coupé and had no offers when i put it on ebay - silly really when Rimmers want £1900 ish for a complete sunroof assembly.

Good luck with shifting your panel anyway, sadly i think you'll probably have the same luck as me! Hope it's better though! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

Hi Dave

Thank you for your kind note, entirely unsurprising and by silly offer I meant £5 or less or even gift it. Will ask my local Rover man if he knows of a friendly breakers in the SE London/Kent area, otherwise after 9 years in the loft.... :( ...it's skip time, I'm sad to say....

You have a fine stable by the way!

All the best

Nigel :D

Paging Phil B..................... Paging Phil B.......................

Phil is in the south London area Nigel and has a Coupé so may well be interested, especially if it's his favourite price! I'll try and give him a nudge in the direction of this thread. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

Just out of interest is the Coupe glass different to the others?

As far as i can work out Mark, the glass is the same but it's the mechanism that's different, the Coupé roof curves a lot more so that's almost certainly why. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

A word to the wise Nigel - not the best idea to post your number in the "open" part of the forum, a PM (Private message) would have been better.

If you look at the screen it shows the persons screen name who has made the post, below that there is a "Contact" button, click that and it comes up with a speech bubble and an envelope, clicking on the speech bubble takes you to the "Send PM" page so you can PM details you don't want in the public domain such as phone numbers, addresses etc.

For completeness, the envelope takes you to the "Send email" page where you can send the recipient an email directly, introduced as "<member> from Rover 800.info sent you an email" and then they can simply read the email.

Hope that's useful for you and if you want, after sending Phil a PM you can edit your post to reflect that and delete your number from it. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave
