dual fuel conversion|
With the relentless rise of petrol and diesel prices
at filling stations over the last twelve months, the idea of converting a car
so you have the option of running on autogas is increasingly attractive. With
uncanny timing, an RV8 dual fuel conversion is now available from the MGV8 specialist
Clive Wheatley mgv8parts at his workshops in rural Shropshire. See the four page
article. More (5.6.08)
New RV8 hardtops - probably
the most exciting spares news in 2008
The arrival of an initial batch
of remanufactured RV8 hardtops using the original moulds will be very welcome
news for many RV8 enthusiasts who have tried in vain until now to buy a hardtop
in the secondhand market. These units are double skinned, fully lined, have an
original pattern wiring loom, interior light, heated rear window, all the fixings
and are finished in a Factory colour of your choice. £2,200 including
VAT - delivery extra. A reproduction of the original storage frame is likely
to follow. (23.5.08) More

original pattern and beige colour with the MG badge, but are a better quality
as they are 80% wool and only 20% nylon. (12.7.08)

replacing their exhaust catalysts over the next few years but will experience
a sharp intake of breath on learning the last Rover price is reported to be £571.81

and found a source of good quality stainless steel replacement cats which he can

RV8 radiator cover|
RV8 owners will be familiar with broken RV8 radiator covers. The original unit
suffers from a weakness - the offside mounting point breaks as the fixing hole
is 2 to 3mm out. Clive Wheatley mgv8parts has sourced a replacement which is part
carbon fibre and part plastic which is much stronger particularly in the centre
of the unit. It looks
the same but has been modified very slightly to make it easier to fit - and it
has no sharp edges like the original Rover unit, something members will welcome!
The replacement RV8 radiator cover is available - the OE price is around £70.
