Default NEW! 75/ZT polished stainless underbonnet mirror panels

NEW! Rover 75/MG ZT Stainless Under Bonnet Mirror Pannels!

As some of you may have already seen, I've had some polished stainless steel under bonnet mirror panels made for my ZT for the Lancaster classic car show at the NEC. This proved to be very eye catching and popular at the show getting quite a bit of attention.

If there's enough interest, I am thinking of arranging a batch run of these under bonnet mirror panels. Ideally need an interest in at least 10 sets to secure the best price.

These are manufactured in the UK, and are lazer cut.

PRICE: If we can achieve 10 orders these will be £120 a set + postage, which is a lot cheaper than nearly £200 I paid for my set as I ordered only 1 set to trial fit on my ZT.

This is the cheapest quote I could get, as I tried 5 different firms in the UK, all which quoted higher than this, one quoted over £350!

The quality of the finish is very good, with a mirror like finish. Most who saw them at the NEC thought they were actual mirror glass panels.

If you'd be interested in a set drop me a reply below If there is enough interest straight away I could arrange to have a batch done on this side of Christmas.

Also, if there's enough interest I could do these for other models as well such as the 25/ZR, 45/ZS and MGF/TF.

Default We have enough interest to go ahead with a batch this month!

FIRST BATCH ORDER GOING AHEAD NOW! Rover 75/MG ZT Stainless Under Bonnet Mirror Panels!

£120 a set + £15 postage via UPS next day delivery insured.

ORDER DEADLINE SATURDAY 30TH NOVEMBER FOR DECEMBER DELIVERY BEFORE CHRISTMAS!

PAYPAL CREDIT AVAILABLE, BUY NOW PAY LATER. 4 MONTHS INTEREST FREE CREDIT.

As some of you may have already seen, I've had some polished stainless steel under bonnet mirror panels made for my ZT for the Lancaster classic car show at the NEC. This proved to be very eye catching and popular at the show getting quite a bit of attention.

These are manufactured in the UK, and are lazer cut.

PRICE: We have enough interest to get the best price for a batch order which is £120 a set + £15 postage via UPS next day delivery insured in the UK, which is a lot cheaper than nearly £200 I paid for my set as I ordered only 1 set to trial fit on my ZT.

Can provide a shipping quote for outside of the UK if required.

The quality of the finish is very good, with a mirror like finish. Most who saw them at the NEC thought they were actual mirror glass panels.

If you would like to order, let me know below and I will send the payment details. Bank transfer, Paypal or Paypal Credit is accepted.

THIS MAY BE THE ONLY BATCH I DO OF THESE. There needs to be interest in at least 10 sets of these at a time to achieve the best possible price. As the majority want these in time for christmas, I am doing the batch order this month. There may be a second batch some time next year but can't guarantee as it all depends on how much interest there is.

Many thanks for all the interest in these.

Hi Rick,

Yup, I'll place an order - payment by Pay Pal if that suits. If you could let me know Paypal address etc I'll sort the funds .

Cheers,

Cliff

Hi -how do you fix them on - and does the removal of the existing bonnet cover cause any issues - ie increased noise in the cab?

Cheers

I doubt it would increase noise on a 1.8 Martin

When I owned a 1.8T I removed the underbonnet proofing and binned it.

Didn't make any difference, no extra sound at all, just a lot cleaner engine as mine was slowly falling apart.

To remove I put a large sheet across the whole on the engine bay and prised out the domed clips with a flat bladed screwdriver.
