Well, it’s official after a significant loss to myself I am now on the look out for a spray booth and a recovery truck for RoverRevival.

What this means for our customers:
No more getting ripped off by couriers
24/7 collections of customers cars
No more getting ripped off for painting of cars
All under one roof repairs.

What did I loose?
Nothing, but my vvc cabriolet will soon be with its new owner, purchased to make sure they have something suitable to go to the classic car shows in.
Meaning, it’ll finally be getting used. So that can only be a good thing.

Well here she is, the closest thing i could find to a rover recovery truck. With a whopping 58,000 miles, i'm sure it will be around for a while.#

Also finally managed to finish the livery on Kevin

It's amazing the LDV has so little miles, despite its age

Parts dept filling up nicely and i'll be issuing a discount code at the start of September to be able to get a massive 35% off all items.

Image

Some of the cars we have been playing with:

Kevin got its rusty arches fetled:
Image

Matt got dropped off by projecttransitface with a distributor issue
Image

I bought a city car because, i don't know why but sure we can have some fun with it at 22k miles, maybe a courtesy car... :laughing2
Image

Got to sort a Saab Head and timing chain out
Image

Changed the colour of an interior from light grey to black for our tourer project.
Image

Kevin found a friend when les came to collect some wings
Image

and finally, an Atlantic blue 416 came in to have its windscreen aperture sorted.

about time i updated this as not everyone uses instagram or facebook.

Our equipment levels have quadrupled with massive game-changing equipment

We have finally got a 4 wheel laser alignment tool, seeing as almost every car that comes in needs it.
Image

We upgraded our diagnostic machine for all our #notjustrover customers which we are currently working on integrating pscan into it bus as android is not natively supported its a bit of a challenge.
Image

We finally have a plasma cutter, which is the most awesome tool ive used this year.
Image

We also have the facility to tig weld (almost) anything now thanks to our miller syncrowave 250 water-cooled tig machine, pretty sure they used this to land the space shuttle.
Image

and our baby bandsaw for those tricky precise cuts that the grinders just can't do well
Image

So fair to say our metal fabrication side has definitely had some presents this qtr.

will upgrade again after chrismas.

Thanks, as per our ethos at the beginning, I’ll happily turn any money the company has into new features that mean we can offer even more services so we never have to deal with over priced jobs because they don’t want to work on it.
