Look who's back!!!
 
A few months ago the engine of my 75 died after 3 times a hg failure
Also there was a lot water in the boot, radio didnít work anymore
the cooling fan motor didnít work either.etc etc etc
Had to decide what to do with my car. I didnít like the thought of selling it
for spares. So I had to give her a second change. I found a very good Rover/MG specialist
And now sheís back!!!!
With:

A new remanufactured 1.8 engine (of course with the MLS gasket)
New fan motor
New thermostat
New waterpump
New clutch plates
Music again in my car
No more water in the boot
Door badges
Crofts doorfinishers fitted at last (wow)
A black/ walnut gearknob (thanks again Les)
AndÖÖÖ..
A complete set of a cream leather interior, with memory and heated seats (also Wow).:drool4::drool4:

In four weeks I get the powerfold mirrors fitted with the original switch panel
So Iím very happy again.

Now saving for nice alloys but will take some time for it

The only bad thing is I canít show the engine because I cantít open the bonnet:o
I think the cable has broken . Is there another way to open it?

Thinking about a club grille badge, would it look good on my75?

Just done it !

Looks good, I note the cruise switch on a 1.8?

Prachtige wagen Eric!

Looks very nice, with almost new leather so to see, if you want to keep it that way, I have an address in Holland for you for leather cleaning, feeding and treatment products. It is an leather specialist, who also give instructions on your own car if you want how to use it.

Rob.

Hi Phil,

Switch is doing nothing.
Because I've now heated seats this panel was build in by the garage.
I's an 4 hole switch panel so they also put a "fake" cruise switch on it.

Beautiful - just beautiful! The thought of breaking her for spares - ugh! (The leather looks great - "cool" in the original sense. Not as practical as Ash Grey perhaps but very nice. Wonder why Rover felt it was not worth offering the Sandstone on Wedgewood Blue?
