Re: 1989 Rover 827 Vitesse automatic

@ Dave: thanks!! I used a hair dryer to heat up the panel and the spray can. But it is not that cold. Thanks!

@ Lodein: thank you! We found it at someone who collects Rovers and Rover items. He wanted to sell it yo me because he knew my 800 and me. My brother paid.
Thanks again!

Re: 1982 Rover 3500 V8 Vanden Plas automatic.

Sounds better indeed Richard. Oh, i forgot to mention that the national speed limit is dropped to 100 kph. The state spend billions on hour motorways that are a tool to make money (time is money) and increase the speed limit to 130 kph but then the green church decided, with no well founded reason, ...

Oops! What was the limit and how fast were you going Marc?
The road is 70 kms/h but at the lights it is 50. I drove 60 at the lights. After correction its 57 kms so 7 kms/h over limit ticket.

Re: 1989 Rover 827 Vitesse automatic

Today it was time to put my 827 Vitesse in hibernation. First i drove it, filled the tank, pumped up the tires, wash, hotwaxed the wheel wells, vacuumed the interior, greased the seals, removed battery and put fuel stabilizer in the fuel tank. Cant wait to cruise next year. :) https://i.postimg.cc/k...

Re: 1989 Rover 827 Vitesse automatic

Put the 827 Vitesse on the lift as well. Removed the wheels and cleaned the inside. Checked if the paint job was still lokking good. :) I also removed them to grease the hubs to prevent the rims from rusting to the hubs: Everything else looked fine as well. :) https://i.postimg.cc/bw8FgCpt/15.jpg ht...
