Quoted from Steve P
I`ll be doing the CV conversion on my 2.5 Vitesse soon,its a MK 1 so a little more involved.
I don`t fancy losing a wheel complete with shaft and hub attached.

Sorry for quoting myself but i must have dreamed this would happen because, it DID on the 2012 RBRR,complete with hub and wheel still attached...

Did the Rover/Volvo(MR Jones) conversion and its excellent.If only he was still doing them because i would do my 1500 Herald.

I'm fitting Cv conversion to my Mk2 Vitesse for the following reasons; Rotoflex couplings mask wear in the UJ, so you get no warning, they just let go. It,s no fun! AMHIK; The price of a new rotoflex (I assume good quality ) from Rimmers is £250 each. Aftermarket ones are £35 or so and generally don't last. You pays yer money and takes yer choice! Cheers, Dave.

First Triumph: 200cc Tiger Cub. Followed by in no particular order, 350 and 500 Royal Enfield Bullet, Herald 1200, Herald 13/60, Mini 1275 GT, Vitesse 2L convertible, Audi 80, Audi 80 Sport, Fiat 124 Sport Coupe, Triumph 2000, Mk 2 Estate, Fiat Tipo, Fiat Stilo, Fiat Uno, Peugeuot Turbo Diesel(yuk), Lancia HPE 2000ie (wow! a dream!) So far 3 Heralds and My fourth Vitesse in the garage. I may have forgotten some... It's my age.. Oh , Honda 400 four.. Terrifying! And the 2 Renault 5s. Oh, and the Ford Granada 3 litre estate..I think that's the lot.
