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!!
