Or give it to the Bobniston cars team they'll lose it in a field for you for months on end (I'm not bitter)

Maybe the apprentice engineers at Bobniston could cut their teeth on it?

At the very least it would put most of them off a career in the motor industry, the rest would realise that Bob spends far too much time making sure things fit properly.

Some rainy harvest days have allowed me to get this into the workshop for some TLC.

Changed fluids and filters.
Replaced leaky cam seals with some proper NOS seal caps that I sourced.
Replaced steering lock. Got arse-fucked to the tune of £200 by Rimjobs for that.
Fixed several pieces of loose trim and bits.

It will HERITAGE again, but on the upside I do now have a GENUINE Rover ignition key which is just LOVELY. I literally can't stop touching it.

I went to the doctors yesterday with a painful foot.

Turns out I have tendonitis caused by driving a Rover with a fucked clutch.

This thing is literally killing me now.

That's what happens when you get to 40.
Buy an auto.

Yet I'm commuting into Newcastle everyday in my 600 auto which is as relaxing as it is reliable.

Freezing cold in the winter, burning hot in the summer. Leather is for the vain.
