Any one got a 1972 R4? I would like to have a look over one to see the detailing of windows etc. to help with restoration of ours. I am in Lichfield, my colleague is in York. Thanks Edwin

Thanks Stuart. Yes I remember. I have just bought a 1972 R4l basic, with deck chair seating, and I think a 782cc motor. Further, its only done 8000 miles!!! Documented. It needs a resettle, and I don't understand various bits and pieces and what they should look like, especially the metal front windows, which are a bit decrepit. It has been suggested to change them to plastic. What do you think? I would like to pop over and see how your early cars are. It can't be for a while because i am away, but when we return, will contact you to set something up. Regards Edwin

Just let me know when your back and we can sort out a date.
Window frames are very tricky, metal ones are all but impossible to remove and overhaul without breaking them. If they are ruined then latter plastic may be the only way forward, but I hate not to be original with stuff like this!
Second hand doors with good frames may be another answer...
