[ROVERNET - UK] A Rover story

Hi all,

25 years ago I started a ground up restoration of my beloved 1970 TC 2000
My pride and joy in the late 70s and early 80s. But life got in the way.

So I bought a used tractor trailer and put it inside always planning to get
back to it. I never did BUT I kept that trailer locked and for the most part
dry. Over the last few years as I have gotten into my 40s I have gotten the
Rover bug again. So I bought a 68 TC 2000 on EBay in May then just for kicks
a 58 Bugeye. (She thinks it's cute and wants to restore it so if I let her
keep it then she will let me continue on my Rover tirade) Then I got a P4
105 (really nice car) I then worked out a deal for the P3 that was on EBay
after the auction. So things have been moving a fair pace getting a Rover
collection going. Now on to the P5b

So the point of this story is I decided to open up that trailer tonight that
I had not been in for years and look at what I had. I was amazed how far I
had gone on the car. I also had been in the collection mode back then too so
I have doors, bonnets, boots etc. I guess I am going to have to really dig
in and see what I have its all TC and 3500s based. So if a fellow rover
decibel needs something let me know and if I don't need it I will part with
it. But be patient as I have a lot to go through.

I believe there is still a dark blue P5B saloon with RHD near Syracuse, 
NY.  We first saw it back when John Sheuring owned it -- I think he said 
that it was an early one too.

Fried my left, rear brake reservoir. Oh, and the master cylinder too.  Left 
car idling for a few minutes....which became 3 hours.  Heat actually melted 
the plastic reservoir, and the brakes were spongy until cool, then much less

effective than before.   I had not reinstalled the frayed heat shield which,

in any case, looks suspiciously like pure asbestos. What material is there 
to replace it?  Thanks for answers.
