    Dutch Rover 2200TC

    I already had quite extensive rust repair done on my car. Both sills and part of the floor have been changed around 2011. This is why I was hoping to find nothing major and this news kinda s*cks! So I can fully understand finding a rust free car was a must for you. The good news? The sills are...

    Dutch Rover 2200TC

    Oh dear me... Ouch... by T Leuven, on Flickr Nothing wrong with a bit of ventilation. But I prefer just looking at the top of my carpet, not the underside. Turns out my car has a couple of rust spots, of which this one is the worst. It's the footwell of the drivers side (left side in this...

    Dutch Rover 2200TC

    The Rover has been moved! Went way better than expected. No seized up brakes, all tyres still had some air in them (who would've thought that) which means it was easy-peasy getting it out of the garage box. Had some help of my dad and younger brother, and hired a bloke with a proper trailer...

    1967 2000TC on Car & Classic

    I don't want to sound annoying, but I think using better pictures of your car will increase you're chance of selling it there. The pics you're using now are rather low on resolution and the lighintg seems off in a few (too bright). Some more detail shots of the car would be nice as well. It...

    Really? It's been some time since I bled the brakes on mine (couple of years), so I could very well be mistaken! Anyone else? :)

    When you're doing it with two people, it's managable without any fancy goodies. But the rear brakes still are a pain in the a$$... I start with the left rear one, after that the right rear one. On the front it doesn't really matter I think.

    Apparantly you need to apply the handbrake many many times to adjust it. Have fun. ;)
