Getting busy in here, anyone remembers my old unit will know this is familiar territory.

Never one to shy away from a big build, we were recently contacted via our google maps advert by a guy in Tameside who had a megaproject he has been trying to sort for 2 decades.

A 1963 Rover p4 110 is coming in for a full body and engine restoration :slapme

Hoping to get it back to usable classic status and looking like it used to (pic not his car)

We have allocated just shy of a year to complete this build so slots for r8 work may have to take a back seat for a short term unless its nothing major.

Not the first 63 I’ve worked on, and tbh there are more parts suppliers than there are for r8’s!!

I can confirm that we have now passed our structural inspection and have been signed off for a two post ramp!!

So that will hopefully be fitted by the end of the month.

I really must get my posterior in gear and arrange to drive up the 214 and 420 for you to play with ! I've got some time off coming up in November (w/c 5th I think) so maybe we can work something out ?

Not a problem, just let me know when you are ready.
3 cars will be leaving site within the next few weeks so always looking to fill the space.

Thanks Craig - will you be at the AGM ? Perhaps we can fix something up then. I might even dare to drive the 214 down for your honest opinion on just how broken it is....

Being honest, it’s unlikely I will be this year.

There’s no rush, I’m not going anywhere.
