David, How much will the new engine cost from V8 developments?

Does any one know how many UK Holland & Holland’s were actually produced? Yes yes I’ve heard 100 for the UK market of which 20 had TVs. However if you look on ‘how many left’ it indicates that only 53 were actually registered in the UK of which 25 are still on the road and 16 SORN. Also whenever they come up for sale they always seem to have TVs. I’ve managed to track down the numberplates of 21 UK H&Hs and am trying to build up my own register of them. Any help it tracking down details of UK ones would be appreciated, including scrapped ones. Tks H&H

Many thanks, on ‘my register’ I have already found / identified 21 Uk cars, of which 13 have factory TVs. Rob I’d already got your’s on my list but was unaware that it had TVs so many thanks. I’ll keep hunting more down and keen to hear from other UK owner’s.

Gilbertd, you are correct, some Holland & Hollands appear to have only been registered as HSE Autos when I carried out a free HPI check on them. As for ones with TVs I’ll keep counting.

Radio codes for P38 Alpine systems can be purchased for 99p on eBay. Yes he advertises it as ‘Mercedes’ but I have used him plenty of times and he responds within minutes and 100% success rate on P38 Alpines. Search on eBay ‘’MERCEDES BENZ ALPINE RADIO CODE SERVICE AL2910 AL2199 - ONLY - 99p’’

If it is the same person as advertising on eBay (I’d be surprised with my own experience) you might as well spend 99p on eBay, if he fails again leave a negative review and bad feedback which will slow his eBay business down.

Yes I’ve got both of them on my register. I’m up to 22 now of which 14 have factory TVs.

I’m looking for some tips on replacing my headlining material. Over the years I’ve replaced 4 but still never mastered the technique in the dips. I have always used foam backed material from AS-trim. The areas I just can’t master is in the grab handles and around the sun visors. I’ve even tried cutting the material by the rear lights etc to alow more stretch in the dips. Although they always look good I’ve never managed to get that factory look. Any experts out there with some advise?

Many thanks for all your comments, however I didn’t take your advise. Instead I had a spare roof lining around so I put the new lining on, stretched it the best I could, then I laid a plastic painters sheet over it then laid the 2nd head lining on top and applied plenty of weights emphasising on the tricky corners. I also cut slits in the ‘holes’ to allow a little more stretch. I left it for 24hrs in my greenhouse and the results are ‘near perfect’. I highly recommend this ‘sandwich’ approach.
