Thanks for that, Russell!

We can supply new, but as an alternative, if you've been following the "Oil tight Austin Seven" thread, you'll see that the guy who's butchered a superbly original '33 RP is disposing of the entire sunroof assembly.  I know this car and the roof was still in working order before he got his hands on it.

Hello Peter,

I'm the one that supposedly wrecked a perfectly good 33 RP - bought via Martin Prior, and was commented on "Oil tight Austin Seven"...... but then the RP wasn't really very good. 

The sliding roof panel had a huge air gap and the metalwork below the sliding panel was very rusty. It was completely removed down to the factory bodywork metal - actually to reveal the 5mm rebate which I have inserted a polycarbonate panel to allow solar panels to collect ANY contribution as is available from Manchester sunshine ;-(

Yes, I currently have the sliding roof and parts that came off in tact. You can contact me on mikelly2@me.com or 0771 288 7993  the website blog is "immortal-gems.co.uk" (me.com is an apple email, immortal-gems is a spare domain I own)
