Rover 8FFR Dexion support / first roof hoop?


Recommended Posts

A General question to the series 2/ 2a owners out there that have either an FFR or GS with Dexion fitted.


The correct fitting in a Rover Mk8 was that the uprights for the Dexion support also had the first roof hoop as an integral part.


I wondered if any owners had this original item still in place.


It is my opinion that as and when a need for the canvas roofs to be removed in service was needed that an alternative was used. Namely the upright bracket that became common in the series 3 FFR's.


I was curious if my interpretation was accurate or there was another base modification reasoning!


All the literature shows the correct Dexion support / hoop, but I have never seen one in the flesh or possibly on our threads.


They seem to be the Holy Grail on a Toastie Rover 8 or 9??


Cheers and a Happy New Year
