Hi All,

Thanks for all of the kudos regarding the car.  In response to several 
questions:  I tried to keep everything as stock as possible, but the color 
(as all of you afficionados know) is not a Rover color.  My ex (from whom I 
inherited the car in the 80's) had it sprayed that color (It was originally 
the Rover Burnt Grey).  I was told that it was close (in the 1980's) to a 
blue that was used on police cars in Chicago!!!! I had to admit it was a 
much more appealing color and had it re-sprayed as such.

The Centennial Rover decal (1904-2004) was kindly given to me by Ruth at 
A-B-C when I bought a mess of parts in 2004. Give her a call/email and see 
if she has any more.

Yes, I do drive the car, but because I rebuilt everything under that hood, 
and used new seals,gaskets, I expect that it won't start leaking and 
dirty-ing up the engine bay for another 200 miles (LOL).  Then it will once 
again become a beloved British 'leaker'.
