          Hello from Brisbane.

          Keen to know a little of the history of your wagon.

          Should be a good project.

            The PO did a mercedes OM617 swap all else is stock. He's a known Rover guy in VA that has put out some pretty solid conversion stuff. I believe the Wagon sat in the east coast for some years and is now in California. Frame has some rust that will be addressed. Ive been collecting parts to do some metal repairs but haven't started the cutting yet. Still missing some repair panels that I don't have part numbers for but ill get that sorted and start the repairs. Not sure Im going to stay with the OM617 or possibly go to a V8 in the future but Ill get to cutting and welding the stuff that needs immediate attention.

              Looking for the part number of the rusted area in the picture. Bottom of the door sill? Anyone have the name or part number?
              Thanks in advance

                  I remembered recently seeing a similar truck in an RN catalog article. I looked it up and here it is:

                  I've always wondered how those Mercedes diesel swaps drove compared to stock.

                  But my next Rover is getting a V8.

                  Here's a link to all the manuals:

                  Unfortunately, on the station wagons those lower door support pieces were not galvanized like on the 88's and 3 door 109's. They support the bottom of the front and rear doors and are very hard to find. I could use a set myself.

                    Actually, after some digging, the 110" versions are available and very close to the originals and can be made to work with just a few extra holes needed.
                    RN has them, but very pricey!

                    But then they list another one, galvanized (non genuine) for a little less.

                        Check out YRM UK for door pillars. They have a variety of different versions. I had to weld the A, B & C pillars on my 2A. I used the YRM panels and worked well.

                        Lovely truck, too! Good luck!!

                          I galvanized genuine NOS 110 T posts for my 109 years back and have been very pleased. There are some differences, like the lack of a lip to protect the bottom door seal.
