In its hay day it was a not for profit Rover only garage covering everything from oil changes to full structural repairs.
Case n point mr x's former 400 with minor rust

Basically a chance for lads to be lads and an excuse for a bbq while working on cars

I will admit i won't be doing it on the scale i used too, 13 cars at once was a little much but if you need a roof over your head and access to tool that you wouldn't normally have access to whilst a helpful hand is looking over your shoulder to make sure you don't kill yourself. Alternatively, book it in with a shopping list of what needs doing and leave it with us.

Bodywork inc paint and metal work
engine from service to full rebuild
wheels full refurb
exhaust I hate doing exhausts
suspension
Interior

So where exactly is this facility and, for those of us who are not "technical", how do we book in our precious vehicles if we need to?

I am not anticipating an urgent need as my small local garage loves my 216 Cabriolet as much as I do and tells me when anything needs doing.

However, it is just good to know that the Forum has such a facility.
