GROUP BUY - Coupe rear quarter panel repair section: Deadline 12/03/17

I’m pleased to announce that the RCOC bank account is now set up and we’re now in a position to start collecting funds for the coupe rear quarter repair panel sections that Kevin has been working to secure over the past year.

What are you buying?
For this group buy we are getting rear quarter panel repair sections for both sides of the car manufactured by Ex-Pressed Steel Panels. The planned panels will cover the area below the rubbing strip between the door and wheel arch and six inches of the visible body line around the rear wheel arch. The exact shape of the panel is subject to possible revision if/when we get to the stage of manufacture.

The manufacturer will be creating a mould of the complete rear quarter panel, but we will only be producing repair section panels since this is much more cost effective and the most needed section of the panel. Should we want to produce complete rear quarter panels in the future we will have this option with the complete mould.

Panels will be supplied untreated and the manufacturer has recommended they be stored in a dry place. Priming will also aid with preventing surface rust in storage.


How much are the panels?
Panels will cost £240 (including VAT) per side.

Postage will be approximately £35-£45 direct from the manufacturer, but we won’t know exact costs for delivery until the panels have been made and weighed. You are welcome to collect direct from the manufacturer yourself, but the club will not be getting involved in any deliveries themselves to avoid issues with damaged panels. You will be contacted when the panels are ready to be delivered to make arrangements for payment of courier charges if required.


Order quantities?
For this group buy to move ahead we require ten confirmed orders for the panels on each side of the car. We will therefore run this as two group buys, one for each side of the car. Should either of them be unsuccessful this will not prevent the other going ahead if it has met the minimum quantity. For this production run there will be a maximum of 20 panels made; further production runs will require tooling checks etc which add to the cost.


What are the time scales?
At the time we last spoke to the manufacturer in November 2016, there was approximately a nine month lead time for manufacture of new panels. We are targeting Monday 13th March 2017 as the date for placing the order with the manufacturer, which would mean panels should be ready around the start of December 2017, but we will confirm times with the manufacturer once the order is placed. Once the order is placed, we will discuss with those involved if they would like to add a further delay to have a panel tested before the remainder are finished for shipping.


How will the group buys run?
Because of the sums of money involved we will have to take all funds up front on this occasion to confirm interest and to prevent the group buy falling through if we were to collect funds at a later stage. Group buys often leave the organisers out of pocket at the end of the day due to drop outs and we simply can’t allow that to be the case given the sums involved on this occasion.

To reserve a panel for yourself, please transfer £240 per panel required to the club’s bank account by midnight on Sunday 12th March 2017 and drop me a PM to let me know what quantity of panels you require for each side. Once receipt of funds has been confirmed your name will be added to the list in this thread and that will constitute acceptance of the terms of this group buy as laid out in this thread. Payment for delivery will be arranged once the panels have been manufacturered and the courier costs confirmed.

When making bank transfers, please use the following account details:

The club would prefer to take funds by bank transfer since it is easier for us to track, however if you would prefer to pay by PayPal this is acceptable but you will have to cover any fees incurred by the club. Please contact Davva to arrange PayPal payments.

Payments will be non-refundable, the only exception to this will be if we have insufficient interest to go through with the group buys or some other issues results in the group buy falling through, at which point all funds will be refunded in full (less PayPal fees where used) to those participating in the individual group buys. If you decide you want to withdraw from the group buy this will not be permitted, however we are more than happy for you to sell your place to someone else in the club and we will leave that up to you to make those arrangements and communicate them to the club. If we only get enough interest for one of the two group buys, those who have paid for the unsuccessful side will be refunded the cost of that group buy.


Rover Coupe Owners Club Disclaimer
The club’s involvement in the group buy is merely as an independent trusted third party to manage the funds and your money will not be used for any other purpose while we hold it. You are buying these panels at your own risk and it is up to you to decide if the panels are worth the asking price and will be of the quality you desire. We will not be held responsible for any issues relating to the group buy, except those relating directly to the collection and holding of the funds. If you have any issues with the panels these should be taken up directly with the manufacturer and the club will help as best it can should any issues arise.





This thread will be kept locked so that we can track the orders as they are received. For further discussions about the panels or the group buy, please post in the original thread (HERE) or contact Kevin directly. For questions regarding payment matters PM Davva or myself. Please feel free to promote this group buy elsewhere, but collection of funds will be managed directly through this forum.

Given the club has the funds (just!) and its a good investment to guarantee the long term future of the Coupe, we have decided the club will fund the remaining panel for the offiside to push the group buy over the line.
