a little update, have just placed my order for the Pscan.uk diagnostic tool with all its adaptions.

Another service we can offer at Rover Revival along with our Remapping service for all ODB compatible cars.

So i had an interesting visitor to the unit today, one of my fellow neighbours who makes customer carbon fibre :scared

My eyes went like a slot machine with the amount of ideas i came up with.

When are you open for bookings? My headlining has completely collapsed.

As an aside I saw your wife at the petrol station today, she gave me a knowing nod :laughing2

:laughing2 she did mention some strange person kept staring at her...*laughs*

Headlining is a leave it with me kind of job as I like to leave a good 24hrs for the glue to set before refitting. That and we have to choose fabrics and decide if you want marching door cards too.

That's fair enough, I've no trouble leaving the car with you as it doesn't get used much in the week, and I cycle a lot too. It's only 4 miles to Warmco.

Don't know what you mean on the door cards, they match the seats so I'd leave them be :S it's an early car with ivory doorcards and Prism velour and I want to keep it. I just want it to look standard, I like it as is (maybe get the sunroof cover reflocked too, who knows).
Will need to discuss it properly with you at some point - now where's the duck tape!
