Its the rear panel cover. It sits onto the rear panel and down between the tank cover and rear of the car and underneath the rear spoiler inside the car at the back between the rear wheel arches. a soft covered panel that pushes into place. you can use Velcro to fasten it.

Thanks for replys, have tried fitting to rear
Panel but not wide enough , and to deep when tank.cover on it sticks above rear window , also car had rear head cloth extending around rear panel so what would be the point of this cover?

Hi David things ok my end , doing bits to WFD 400H as and when got time and money , had to fit oil filter extension as the oil filter was very close to chassis and I had to use a bar against the engine to gain clearance to renew filter , so now the filter fits at a different angle , it also enables me to fit an oil cooler, so I've purchased a kit , still have to fit it yet, also got a pair of alloy ford rocker covers , need a bit of cleaning up, that's another job to do ,I was looking to have car on the road this year but to be realistic I think next spring would be a better time to head for , hope you well and fit , I have to say I'm not looking forward to winter already had one but that's took three weeks to get rid of , must be old age can't fight colds off like I used to , then again some of these new bugs are really nasty.
pS/ the price there asking for alloy rocker covers for the V6 a set just like mine but had been blasted and lacquered there asking £300 , crazy?

Amazing how the days whizz by..
Having trouble getting on site as well. .
Password seems to be malfunctioning.

I must be into Imps because I neglected WFD in preference to them..
How I stupidly rid of the Mason Stiletto special Saloon twice and the Vixen to help finance my son's meeting activities..

I may have asked before but was this originally a Vixen (as the chassis appears to be) or a Tuscan?

Also what diff are you on there?

Hi yes it was a vixen , as far as I know the chassis and body we're the same as a Tuscan on the S2 , it's running a sierra alloy limited diff ,with a five speed series 9 gearbox with quickly shift, and a 2.8, Colone carb engine .

In fact the Tuscan chassis is slightly different - I saw yours was Vixen hence the question. Is the diff an easy fit it looks like it needs chassis mods?

I was lucky my chassis was already renovated and modified to take the engine gearbox and diff and V6 motor all I had to do was Paint it what is the difference in the vixen to the Tuscan chassis then ?

amongst other smaller differences, the cross brace over the bellhousing is larger and more arched on the Tuscan presumably to accommodate engine and box removal together from above.

I removed the cross brace up the clutch housing and during the process of modifying and installation of a Zodiac Mk 4 V6 and overdrive gearbox..
Idea later abandoned in the early 1980's.

Still have new front suspension bushes to fit, although old bushes ok have renewed all rear so may as well make front the same ,and paint arms, have dashboard to fit and wire in ,, seats and belts to fit, as I mentioned earlier oil cooler to fit , and clean up and fit alloy rocker covers I've just purchased , two or three good weekends should see it ok , of course there will be other problems come up seeing it's been off road for so long , also brakes to bleed, just waiting to see if that silly two way valve lets me bleed system if it doesnt I'll just fit a three way connector and do without the valve and brake fail warning light,cheers Keith.
