Quick question, Is the rear event plate supposed to be on the roof?

I'm out at the moment so can't check mine mate, but it's on the rear screen isn't it?

Some kind soul Wink very coincidentally uploaded a You Tube link to the 1986 RAC Rally on Facebook earlier today. Is that the rear event plate you can just make out in the rear window, or the top of the air filters? It's almost impossible to make it out on any rear shots as the car's are always caked in mud at the back...

Thinking about it, it's more than likely the air filters as it appears to be square topped and not arched like the rally plate. Rolling Eyes

David, I'd agree with your line of thinking. Makes more sense, and the height and position of the outline against the rear window would suggest it was the full-fat air filter.

One very kind soul hahaha I wonder who that could be Wink . Billy's photo helps look under rear spoiler on roof, but McKlein's one doesn't show it(angle maybe):

So would this model be better on gravel wheels rather than tarmac Dymags do you think?

Mmmmmm, looks like your suspicions were right then Dave - do you reckon it's mounted right at the very back of the roof, with the base of it sitting just before the panel gap to the tailgate then?

The car would have used both tarmac rims and gravel rims prior to retirement Simon, although gravel rims would have had a far greater use for sure. Wink

That would make sense, especially as Harri's C96KOG was also a Cowley-run car. Wink
