Look out, he’s been shopping again. :clapping

(By Friday)
We will have our own tyre changer and balancing machine along with a new compressor to enable all the other air devices such as the parts washer and sand blaster to work.

Tyre removal and disposal £5 per tyre (costs £2.20 per tyre disposal).
Tyre fitting and balance £5
We can get wholesale new tyres and good quality used tyres as well.

If that wasn’t enough we now have updated our cars for sale page.

So, the expansion continues.

I find out in two weeks if my building expansion will pass planning permission.
If it does, that will mean our workspace will change from 2000sqft to 4000 sqft and will mean we might be able to have our own paint booth fitted as well :clapping

Keep your fingers crossed guys.

Then it'll be a matter of "think of a number" pricing for a car that goes in one end, and comes out the other looking like it never left longbridge... :)

There's a company in Redditch that charges £70K to completely rebuild a Jenson Interceptor to "as new", if that helps!

We will still be not for profit, the computer side is paying for all this.

Jenson customers would be happy paying that.
Rover customers, not so much...*laughs*

With the current situation there's a wherewithal to encourage businesses so providing you've not included an industrial incinerator or are discharging solvent into the Mersey, it should be good news. Congrats on the expansion plans anyway......

Just wondering, who’s be interested in a free restoration of their car including paint, just for subscribing to a YouTube channel and seeing our builds in progress?

We are only in the planning stages now but it will be videos like doing pre Mayo hgf ect...

Then we can start a competition once it hits 1k subscribers. All you need do is send us a link to your video telling us why we should do your car and we’ll make a shortlist of contenders. Then put it to the viewers who wins and then we get started.

All this will be running along the expansion plans with the competition winner getting a decent Christmas present surprise.

I’ve got a rover sd3 216vdp if that’s any good for you to restore on you tube. It’s very solid just head lining and respray plus little jobs.

I worked for Austin rover in late 80’s early 90’s.
I’ve just brought the rover 216 vdp as I’ve been looking for another one same spec, like I had in the 90’s which was my dads last car before dieing I had it until it got written off the insurance company would let me keep it.
I had a rover 420 gsi I was looking for a turbo one at the time. Had loads of 214’s etc over the years.
