That's very good welding and painting you would never know there's been a new piece placed there

I look forward in the relatively near future when I send my R8 to you, which is the best both for the R8 and my budget

The most subtle RRR advertising you’ll ever see on a video with Project Nigel and Matt Richardson of furious driving.

So what's happened to Rover Revival?

I saw massive potential with this company being created (& social media platforms), however I've heard they've closed down now?

Apparently they closed end of last month but looking at some of the work people have been posting on Facebook, if it was done there generally then I'm not surprised was shocking

My understanding of the recent sequence of events is:-

1) The workshop was partially flooded over the Xmas holidays, taking out the area that would have become the paint booth and, crucially, much of the electrics.
2) In discussion with the landlord about fixing the flat-roof that leaked and the electrics, the landlord gave Craig notice to vacate.
3) Craig spent the last 4 months winding the business down, returning cars and clearing the workshop
4) He finally closed the doors at the end of April

Sad to hear if true.

Has Craig given up completely or is he looking to resurrect the business elsewhere?
It would be a loss to Rover owners if all that knowledge and experience was lost for ever. :sad

It's my understanding that he's going to go and do something completely different.
