Car is a 2002 ROVER 25 1.4 16v Spirit, possibly a Spirit S.

123,000 on the clock, fires right up, failed its MOT on a corroded rear shock and brake pipes, I have the spares on hand.

Car is half decent spec, Front Fogs, Air Con, Mud Guards, Colour Coded lowers on the bumpers.

I will do some general maintainance, service and fix the MOT bits, get it on the road and eventually it will become the shell for
me to add all the parts from the 25X, its too far gone to fix now so I will make a hybrid car and use all the good bits, as much as
I want to keep the 25X, if I fix all the issues the paint it coming off now and parts are down to primer.

That's worse than the peel on my red GTi and somebody gave it a cheap blow over before I got it. :sad

You're catching me up! :D
