Hi I was wondering if you could please help. After ten years of ownership I am finally getting the coachlines and badges put back on my P5b coupe. Specifically the body coachlines and 3.5 litre badges, and the ROVER boot lettering. I recall from many years ago a description of how to position these, and how to put the angle on the coachlines, but cannot find it even with the search. I’m having it done professionally but it would help the guy to have the locations. Many thanks Al
Just had a look at mine and the V is in the middle. It is 2 and a half inches above the edge of the rubber surround of the reversing light. The other letters, measuring accross from half way down the letter are 3 and a quarter inches apart. Sorry it is not a very good picture, ignore the reflections and you can see the reversing light bulb, which is LED and touches the glass and is in the centre
I should imagine Rover had a jig to position them properly on the assembly lines
You can make one from an old bootlid. I had a mate who did panel repairs on P5 and P6 Rovers when they were new and he had jigs for both. They saved him hours every time he used them. If you make one just make sure to pick a bootlid where the letters are on straight......
