Due to being unable to get a structural report to see if we can have a two post in the unit (and I can't afford one yet), I managed to pick up the next best thing.

Not perfect but a lot better than trying to scrabble around with just a jack in hand and best of all it's portable (at 45kg) and fits in the back of a 75 estate.

just another notch to the belt of Rover Revival.

Well, that's been an expensive week but, we now have an extensive collection of diagnostic hardware, as well as new mapping hardware to increase the number of cars we can cover.

Best of all......we have a date for the keys. :clapping

Roll on March 30th :tumbleweed

I would discuss that with your insurer first!

I fitted an [ill fitting] stainless steel exhaust to a 2.0 L Carrado, it put the premium up to more than a VR6! :cursing
