Replacement RV8 radiator cover
Many 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. (Jun 04) More
