Rob.
Bedankt Rob,

I'm very interested in the address you have. Because I've noticed a few small cracks in the leather

Hi Eric, its great to see you have a running car again, I am also happy to see that you have committed to keeping it on the road. Its all to easy for us to say oh well just scrap a car if something big goes wrong, but what matters is not the book value of a car but what the car means to you. I think I can speak for most of us when I say we get quite attached to these 75's and I will certainly try and keep mine on the road for as long as I can. I can guess how much you have spent to get it in that condition but if you keep it for a few years it becomes insignificant, well done and long may you enjoy your beautiful looking 75

Happy to help Eric,

Look here at http://www.mooi-leer.nl/ and the link on that web page http://www.colourlock.nl/ when I bought our 75 the leather had also a few small cracks. I called, made an appointment, and went to Dronten. Very helpful man who is a leather specialist for years and years, he can also help you with leather paint, made special for the colour(s) of your car. Thanks to him I have leather paint for my steering wheel, what is as new again, and my seats are personal line saddle brown, very rare I think, but the colour match is just perfect!

The products he is selling are easy to use, and it works very well. It is made by a German factory specialized in leather care products, and they make not only products for cars, as you will see. If you call him please give my regards to Tiemen. He can also send his products to you, but I recommend to visit him, you won’t be sorry for that!

Here a previous post regarding leather.

If you want to have a closer look, send me your e-mail address, and you will have the hi-res pictures.

Rob.

<edit> Oh, and thanks for the watch address... PM received!

When I saw it fitted in my car for the first time
It looks so, so good !!
Don't understand either why Rover didn't offering Sandstone on wedgewood blue cars.

Did I already said that it looks good

Cruise Control is possible on the 1.8 engine cars.
Look out Christopher's How To on fitting one.
Expensive way to get the switch in use, but a worthy, useful facility.
