[ROVERNET - UK] Wonder How Much To Import This Rover?

Hi Roland,
Yes, I have said many times that I wish I had imported 
rather than start on the RHD car, but I'm too deep into it 
now.  It is exactly what someone intent on importing 
needs...a LHD car to start with.

Still has some rust and no sill trims, though.  So what if 
you have to do the sills again, it's a LHD car and seems 
rather solid.  I would like pictures of the top of the 
cowl at the windscreen corners.  Bubbles there and at the 
TOP of the D post indicate really bad rust that was not 
addressed at the last restoration.  You can have good 
sills and still have major problems if you don't know 
where to look.  My first P5B Coupe was hopeless even by UK 
standards...rust up into the roof.

Somebody in the US needs to snag this one.

Kent K.
