After the success of the previous fix it day, here we go again!

Sunday 21st October 2012 from 08:00 till we're done.

Here is the last event and a few of the pictures of people getting their hands dirty (even zrchris "we have pictures").
viewtopic.php?f=48&t=138650
http://roverrevival.blogspot.co.uk

The next event we are hoping to have sponsored by my local Autofactors so we will have some freebies to give away.

The event its self is free of charge but we do ask for a £5 donation to go towards the cleaning and electrical costs of the event.

This donation only applies to people getting work done.

So for those who haven't already been.

Vine Street, Hazel Grove, SK7 4JS
https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=sk7+4j ... ngdom&z=19

If you are planning on having work done please let me know so we can make sure you leave with that work completed.

We can even provide any parts you require (pending availability) at trade cost (an invoice will be shown regarding the prices) but please let me know prior to the event so we can make sure its there on the day. Cut off for parts is 12:00 on Saturday 20th October.

Street Parking is limited but we have access to two large car parks close to the event, we ask if you are not having work done to utilise these car parks.

Other than that all are welcome, we have most tools you could ever require and if i haven't got it, it will be there ready for the next event.

Why do i do it?
Well i make enough money out of my job and have a fond affection for the rover brand so its my way of giving a little back to make sure these cars stay on the road. One day the R8 will be as sort after as the Austin 7's and just a rare and my little collection of the rarest ones i can find will hopefully still be running.

Only one rule applies, you break it you bought it :crash:

See you there

1. 1234dist - general helper
2. Rover-25X - in need of serious welding!
3. mtechstevo
4. zrchris
5. AndyHC1990
6. Chrissy-25X
7. James Meadows
8. gopher (hellkef)
9. Bluerover (photography)

Yep, indeed mate, serious hard core welding. :oops:


Set up my own sideline thread so people can see the exactl details of what I
need doing to the car, anyone interested can find it in the link below. :thumbup:


LINK: viewtopic.php?f=48&t=139164



Baisicly I need to do the following jobs:


Weld up the Rust Holes
Fit CV Boots on both sides
Fit Reluctor Rings on both sides


Plus hopfuly if AndyHC1990 could come down and attempt to bodge an exhaust
on the car for me then that would be great. :D

At the bridge, with Horatius.
I'll be there, just need a cursory check on bottom balljoints, arb links etc so if possible a few minutes on the lift so as not to get in the way of people needing any car repairs. I'll also bring my camera and can take photos of the parts which Craig has in stock (also pics of attendees if desired).

Only jobs i need doing are to the 420.

rear seats, carpet, roof lining and engine removed.

So we're not having anyone with idle hands this time seeing as there is only 1 week to go anyone want to put their name down as a helper?

2mm sheet steel ordered, trying to do a deal to get off cuts instead of a sheet as we will only be cutting it up anyway, and with a bit of luck may be able to get it free of charge.

fingers crossed will find out tomorrow morning.

Bit of a set back last night, got a tug by the Rozzers, no not that kind of a tug you dirty barstewards, pulled for no MOT, I thought it was up on the 20th, it expired on the 10th, guttted, £60 up the swanny ! :annoy:


The Traffic Copper did say I could only drive it to an MOT station, its booked in at my local on Tuesday at 10am but she said she can't see it being an issue on Sunday morning if I get pulled if i'm going to a 'Garage' to get repairs, coming home might be an issue but its mostly Motorway, i'll just say I have just picked it up from getting repairs and hope they are not a bit of a w####r. :(
