      Honda Crossroad...
      [QUOTE=MuddyMudskipper]
      Yeah I guess Honda was providing cars to be sold as Rovers in Europe and Australia (like the Integra/Rover 416i) and in exchange they got a badge engineered Disco a-la Isuzu Rodeo-Honda Passport/Acura SLX - Trooper. What Honda should have been helping the Rover Group with in the whole exchange is tolerances, because you can see a non-Bimmer/Ford Premiere Group derived Rover leak from outer space.

      Yeah, I've got a sales brochure for one. Honda and BMW both had an interest in Rover. Remember the Sterling car sold in the US in the late 1980's? That was Rover coachwork over Honda running gear.
      Cheers

      Really? Wanna scan it? It'd be interesting to see how it was marketed. I definitely remember the Sterling too.

      My Rover hasn't run for a week because of this:


      All kinds of rust on the fuel lines...and i'm pretty bewildered by how small the fuel pump is. After this gets fixed, i've got to tackle bad rear brakes. REALLY bad rear brakes.

      Thanks for the offer, but I think I may have found something on discoweb and rangerovers.net. For what it's worth, I really find Atlantic British's prices to be reasonable!
      I started thinking before bed last night about the RRCC, which causes me to toss and turn, but I've been wanting to replace the power seats, power windows, and sunroof with hand cranks. I'd also like to rip the stereo and roof liner out and have them both redone.
      Anyways, anybody ever locate parts to do manual everything?

      I know of people who have done the manual seat conversion with the Discovery which is straightforward. Unplug the underseat electricals and put the manual seats in from a non power Disco, swap the console to get rid of the giant power seat switch holes, and change out the power window panel in the center of the console to get rid of the heated seat buttons. On a RRC it might be a little different since all of the NAS RRC's I've ever seen had power seats. You may want to see if the seat tracks for the Discos and the Classics are interchangeable. If so it should be a breeze.
      As for the sunroof, I believe all of the NAS Disco/RRC sunroofs are electric. You can probably get the sunroof mechanisms from an early non U.S. RRC and retrofit it to your truck to get a manual crank. It is probably cheaper, if the sunroof isn't important, to swap roofs from a non sunroof truck onto yours. The roofs on Classics can be unbolted and swapped with about an afternoons worth of work.

      I was thinking too
      but then again, the RRCC doesn't exactly exude a sense of being carved out of a solid block of granite. I've been very curious to see how well/poor RRCCs did in crash testing.

      I've given a little thought to what I stated above. On the '95 RRC & LWB "soft dash" the interior shared a ton of components with the Discos including the seats, with the only difference being the direction of the center stitching. This leads me to believe that the seat tracks are the same for all years Disco/RRC or you need to get the tracks out of a '95 RRC to fit Disco seats in your Classic.
      '94 - mid '99 Disco

      '95 Classic

      If you're interested, I know a guy here in California that would know for sure and be able to get you everything you need to get your RR back on the road including the seats etc. (he's of a Rover used parts guy and Classic nut).
