Hello From York :)

#1 Post by Joe Harwood » Sat Dec 28, 2019 4:26 pm

Hi Guys, im Joe and ive just joined the club :)

having owning a 25 for over 2 years now i decided to join the club, i have done a lot of work on it with help from my dad as we got the car and we saved it from the scrap. i Purchased it for £200 and then we restored it
still replacing parts to this day to get it to showroom quality hopefully next year ill get replacing all the brakes and what not along with a good engine tidy
we rebuilt the engine due to the timing belt being knackered and it ruining the timing. we welded new sills on as they had many large holes in them, we removed all the rust from the wheel arches and repaired the back bumper as it had a nasty scratch in it. Now that shes all done im really happy with the outcome :) Image Image Image Image Image Image heres some images of the car now :) it's a 2001 Rover 25 iL

I'd say the car's lucky it found someone so able to tend to its needs.
Your work really shows it off to its best!
