Just curious where are your premises, so I can get it up there, as it will need transporting up there

Thanks u r the only one I have seen that specialise in Rovers of that generation, like I've seen parts on rimmer bros but never actual proper restorers
Just wondering can u give a rough estimate with these ik need doing:
The engine may need new gaskets
Window refitment
Battery
Timing Belt
Fluids
Tires
Wheels
Brakes
Indicator

£2-400 rough guess but £25ph is what we charge at.

That’s labour only. Parts prices change daily so can’t quote on this until time to purchase.

Alternatively, it’s worth looking into classic insurance if the annual mileage will be low and there’s no commuting use; classic brokers seem to be pretty sympathetic to most Rovers now!
Most classic insurers won't cover under 25s or inexperienced drivers. Ironically, I got the best prices for my.daughter's Rover 100 by "comparing the Meerkat"

Thanks, but a estimate for 2,200 to 2400 quid is not bad at all

I can do everything other than the air con, not bought that kit yet but have a mobile guy who can sort it.

There’s not that much work there, I bet you are only around the £200 mark in labour plus the parts.
How much experience have u got and what would be the time frame

Nothing as metaphysical as that...*laughs*

Some days I have my daughter and nothing gets done, others I get a full day in. Until schools go back (thanks to hair dressers going back to work) I now go from 7 days a week @ 8hrs to 3 days @ 6hrs.

So come on boris, open the schools not the pubs.
