Re: 1989 Rover 827 Vitesse automatic

@ Dave: on one side it is but on the other side it does feel like the right thing to do. Preservation. Yes i hope so!

@ Lodein: thank you so much! I am very proud of it. Yes you are lucky indeed! :)

Re: 1989 Rover 827 Vitesse automatic

Today it was time to put my 827 Vitesse in hibernation. First i drove it, filled the tank, pumped up the tires, wash, hotwaxed the wheel wells, vacuumed the interior, greased the seals, removed battery and put fuel stabilizer in the fuel tank. Cant wait to cruise next year. :) https://i.postimg.cc/k...

Re: 1989 Rover 827 Vitesse automatic

Put the 827 Vitesse on the lift as well. Removed the wheels and cleaned the inside. Checked if the paint job was still lokking good. :) I also removed them to grease the hubs to prevent the rims from rusting to the hubs: Everything else looked fine as well. :) https://i.postimg.cc/bw8FgCpt/15.jpg ht...

Re: 1982 Rover 3500 V8 Vanden Plas automatic.

I think the SD1 work that was started surrounding the rust is now completed. :) Boot first sealed with sealer and then primer so that i could apply colour: https://i.postimg.cc/x8C4vc2F/1.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/bYmXZjhB/2.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/hjKwG23n/3.jpg Then i sprayed cavity clear was in t...

Re: 1982 Rover 3500 V8 Vanden Plas automatic.

A while ago i wanted to clean and check the bottom side of my Rover Vanden Plas. I asked my boss if i could use the lifts and that was no problem! :) First i sprayed a cleaner on the underside and then hosed of everything. It was not very dirty but the loose stuff was gone. https://i.postimg.cc/KjHn...

Re: 1982 Rover 3500 V8 Vanden Plas automatic.

Thanks for the info as always Dave!! I understand wat you mean Richard. I talked to a specialist what he would do and he even did not want to rebuild the Strombergs. Het was willing to install SU carbs because they are more reliable but then i would need a hand choke and that would mean that my inte...

Re: 1982 Rover 3500 V8 Vanden Plas automatic.

My Rover 3500 received an upgrade. Because the auto choke was causing trouble and the Stromberg also were tired i decided to install the Edelbrock carburetor. I love the look of the old engine bay but even though originallity is nice, reliability is nicer! https://i.postimg.cc/RZ7FsHNc/1.jpg So, out...
