Rover 825 diesel manual recaro seats spares/repairs

Post by degay825diesel » Tue Dec 05, 2017 11:23 pm

Time to move this off the drive I'm never gonna get to finish fixing it so it might as well go to someone who can sort the issues or use it for parts! The car runs and drives but can be awkward to start without a decent battery, was fine when used daily, the power steering has failed and it needs a couple of small patches of welding on the sills, full Vitesse recaro interior! No mot so needs trailering away or driving to a pre booked mot (at your risk) lots spent, getting rare now (VM diesel)

I did ask for advice on here re. trying to fix the pas but i decided to prod the sills prior to fault finding, Its a bit of an old banger i wont lie the fuel filler is suspect i think, Scuttle panel is a mess! High owner car (12 i believe) its done 153k miles, I did fix the brass expansion tank, changed the air/oil/fuel filter and the oil, Bit of a battery drain too! All in all a bit of ropey old dog but its worth what im after in bits! Id break if my old lady wasn't moaning! Please can a rover enthusiast save it from the banger racers/emr, At least if someone can use it for parts, Another 825 diesel owner out there? £300 firm.

Cheers chaps!

Oh and the interior picture is off of google! Ive been on shift and unable to get a decent pic the recaros are tidy though i even bought a repair piece for the sagging drivers seat and fixed that, Small hole in the dash from some cretin with a hands free cradle! rear bench has some marks! Anymore pictures just ask me and ill email you them, Any other questions just ask and ill do my best!

He's about 2 hours south from me and i'm about 3 hours south from you but take out the dog-leg from where he lives and he's still about 4 hours from you.
Never say never though, he might decide he likes the look of your car and it's worth the journey. I've pointed him in the direction of this thread but his work quite often takes him away for a while.
Cheers,
Dave
