Is that finished? :scared

I will say what others are maybe thinking

Not knocking what you do at all, but that surely needed more grinding initially of the welds to tidy them up and then a small skim of filler to smooth it off, followed by paint?

The welding could be better too unless a quick mot job

There is still a pin hole on the leading edge of the sill.

Don't take this the wrong way, more constructive criticism. :)

Its great that there are still enthusiasts for the brand but a little more time on these repairs means a longer lasting repair surely?

Absolutely, all day long. Difference being this cost £200 vs £4,5 maybe even £600 to do that.

You also have to remember we are not a body shop (yet) our goal is to make it not fugly and charge what it costs.

All steel work we touch is coated in kurust, then zinc primer coated, then seam sealed, then normally wax oiled. In this instance the customer provided a rattle tin of tempest grey as well, so we used that. Our panels will outlive the car.

As restrictions ease slightly as of the 12th of April, would anyone be interested in finally having an open day/cruise through the hills?

Maybe 17th/18th aka delayed pol

I’ve been posting on my Instagram and Facebook that we have started doing some merchandise.

Got some mugs atm and iPhone phone cases but can do almost anything. So as I get the prototypes in I’ll take the pics and add them to the RoverRevival website store.

Let me know if you want anything.
