Hi Roverists:

I've thought of three things that should be done in a restoration.

     First, place a liberal amount of body wax under each sill plate
     as one installs them.  Water has a nasty habit of creeping under
     then, causing hidden rust.

     Second, when one removes the rear panel from below the rear
     backlight, take off the rubber plate retainer and have it gold 
     plated, to stop the rust.

     Third, remove all door gaskets insuring that there's no rust.
     If so, take care of it.  Then apply body wax to the door gasket
     retaining strip.  This will make the installation of the door
     gaskets easy to install, as well as stop the rust.
