About Pillar Trim Moulding
800 Rover pillar trim moulding is a protective or decorative strip attached to the pillars on the vehicle.
The pillars on a vehicle are the almost vertical structural posts that support the window, door and roof areas of a car and connect the roof of the vehicle with the base of the frame. Usually steel or aluminium, the pillars in a car are solid structures, which are welded at one end to the car's frame and at the other to the roof panel and are positioned between the windows or doors. Pillar trim moulding is usually made of plastic or metal, such as brushed chrome, and can usually be attached to the pillar with clips or adhesive pads. It offers additional protection from minor damage such as scrapes and dings and also adds detail or accents to the car's styling.
A vehicle can be styled with trim/moulding in many places both internally and externally to improve the aesthetic appeal of the car. Trim moulding is designed for the specific make and model of the vehicle. The 800 Rover pillar trim moulding offers protection from day to day wear and tear and protects the paintwork of the body panels. Trim or moulding is also offered as optional extras on many models and is used to enhance the car's appearance and styling.
The 800 Rover pillar trim moulding could become damaged due to wear and tear, sun damage or minor accidents.
- Although there were a few Rover-made cars released in the ‘80s, none of them had the word Rover on any of the badging. Instead, they were called Austins, but they did have a similar, Viking-inspired badge.
- During the 1960s, Rover was forced to cancel several promising car projects. That's because Rover became a corporate partner with Jaguar, and some of the projects they were working on were too similar! The Rover P8 was just one of the victims of this partnership and a prototype was never built.
- Rover worked with the BRM F1 team to make the aptly named Rover-BRM. It took a lap of honour in the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1963 as the first gas-driven prototype sports car.
- Corporate shenanigans changed the company a lot by the 70s, and Rover was owned by British Leyland.
- British Aerospace ended up buying the Rover brand in 1988. But they sold it off in 1994 to BMW, who formed MG Rover.
