    My Mums '90 Xr3I Cabriolet

    Hi RScab, sorry I didnt make myself clear, the actual sill of the car is solid, its the metal in the 90 spec trim piece thats rotten. To be honest I've not had a proper look at it, im just going off what my dad told me

    My Mums '90 Xr3I Cabriolet

    Thank you for the replys I appreciate it. I thought the sill cover would be hard to find, the outer rubber bit is ok its the metal insert that has totally rotted. I think I'll try and remake this in stainless or ali. I'll keep a lookout for foglights, thankyou for the pics RScab I think I've found a guy on eBay who can get a new lock to work with our spare key so thats good. If and when anything happens I'll start a build thread. Thanks again
  3. Hi, I thought I'd join the forum and show you my mums XR3i cabriolet and ask a few questions. She bought it around 1994-95 I think, and used it sparingly on nice days. Its been off the road since 2001, dry stored in the factory where my dads worked, he's now retired so its now in their garage. Its a two owner car with 43k on the clock. I'm planning to get it cleaned up and back on the road but I need a few parts but I dont really know where to look. I've looked on ebay but don't really know what parts are correct. If anyone has any bits or can tell me where to look that would be great. We need: 1. Front fog lights - My dad removed these because the chrome inside had gone rusty, unfortunately he removed the brackets too and they've now been lost 2. Drivers side sill cover, I think this is called a 90 spec kit, but could be wrong! Again dad removed it as it was bubbling and he wanted to make sure the sill wasnt rusty, luckily the sill is fine but the cover needs replacing. 3. Passenger side door lock - In 2001 someone tried stealing it and damaged the lock, luckily they never got in and this was the only damage, it was shortly after this that mum took it off the road so it never got sorted. 4. Hood cover - We never had one so it would be nice to get one. I think thats it, it needs a good service but runs great, heres a few pics Untitled by Steve Holden, on Flickr Untitled by Steve Holden, on Flickr Untitled by Steve Holden, on Flickr Untitled by Steve Holden, on Flickr Untitled by Steve Holden, on Flickr Untitled by Steve Holden, on Flickr Untitled by Steve Holden, on Flickr
