Re: 1989 Rover 827 Vitesse automatic

@ 820Vitesse: Thank you! Yes that was a moment that i wanted to capture. Good description indeed! ;)

Re: 1982 Rover 3500 V8 Vanden Plas automatic.

New oil and oil filter for the Rover SD1. Also, the oil sensor was leaking so try to find a new one but no luck. I got lucky at a car parts store with a matching plug. So that leak is fixed now. :) https://i.postimg.cc/sX30xVjM/SAM-2902.jpg New plug: https://i.postimg.cc/FzRWbDJm/SAM-2903.jpg Gave i...

Re: 1989 Rover 827 Vitesse automatic

Even though the profile of my old tyres was oke, they were getting old. This was a good excuse to tackle a job that i wanted to do for a long time. Restore the rims!! Jacked up the car and put it on stands so the work could begin. :) https://i.postimg.cc/cLypvdt0/1.jpg To make sure the rims are not ...

You are right i am afraid. Not many meetings this year. But remember; every cloud has a silver lining. Meanwhile we can enjoy your work!

Re: 1982 Rover 3500 V8 Vanden Plas automatic.

Yesterday, i did some minor work on the SD1. Like the 800 series, the SD1 has a tendence to have a saggy headlining. I became bad in a short while and so bad that you hardly could look out of the rear view mirror. I used mini spirals (ment for this job) to improve it. Before: https://i.postimg.cc/d1...

I spent a lot of time cleaning and preparing the car and found so many small scratches, dents and imperfections, once you fix one and step back to admire your work another leaps out at you. I want to get the whole car repaint...
