Re: 1982 Rover 3500 V8 Vanden Plas automatic.

Another bit of TLC to my SD1. I did some cosmetic (mostly technical jobs) to the engine compartment in the past but it never looked the part if you asked me. Now it did it a bit more thoroughly. First i started to remove some items: https://i.postimg.cc/NFbwhjgC/1.jpg Cleaned the exhaust manifolds w...

Re: 1982 Rover 3500 V8 Vanden Plas automatic.

Another couple of jobs done on my SD1. I noticed that some impact strips on the left side of the car were loose. Only the one on the left wing and left rear door. All the others were still well sticked on so left them alone. :) Adhesive primer: https://i.postimg.cc/BbMhHVZV/SAM-2991.jpg https://i.po...
