Sorry for my poor english.
ERIC:you had understood that I am after a "manual" for rover P6 ,but I
bought last year a package of 7 books on P6 with ebay.
I try to find a MANUEL webasto sliding sunroof:you can see what I want if
you have a look on the green P6 of Eric Russel: a full size sunroof ( 1000
mm x 1200 )
I find in Belgium a factory who can make little spring to fit inside the
stock spring:it's one solution.
I find new classics KONI shocks absorbers: second ( good ) solution.
The better will be a leveller shocks absorbers ( see the post of SLATS )
like MONROE but I can't find any new one.
SLATS: thank you for your answer, your solution is good, but today any
factory can sell air shocks absorbers for P6
I had sent emails to Koni,Monroe,Osrav , but nothing.
Do you know a mark still alive for that.
Have somebody an advice on polyuréthane busches?
Is the noise more important inside the car.
au revoir denis
