As I love ahead with intake / carb, suspension, interior ... worth doing the replacement of rear crossmember as well? Looks like a major job. Any of you guys here in DC area done it?

Thanks much!

I had mine done with Trevor in PA

Also, I was at Uk Motors ( Andrew ) when he did replace couple

depends on how bad it is , you might need one with extensions

Thanks for the quick feedback. I heard good things about Airpark Rovers?

My first wave is suspension, carb / intake and interior work. But the crossmember might have to be part of the first project wave the more I look at it.

Thinking about set of Puma doors, but the obnoxious price they are at seems excessive. But what the hell do I know. Ha.

I have done a few cross members, but it's not a job I'd do for someone else. Heck, I have been putting off doing my nas. Lol

I think he had his rear done last year at Euro Auto in Sterling. But definitely, ping Jonesy. Kinda surprised he hasn't commented yet...

Yep I'll be there. Haven't driven a Rover since the last HH, but looks like it'll be dry so I'll drag one out of the garage.

Probably not - letting the kid drive that one. Not content in destroying one, I am working on destroying another (or two) since I drive them all in the snow

Weren't you the one that told me you can only "wheel" one vehicle? Shouldn't the same apply to desecration via snow belt?

Might have to drive the truck tomorrow if I don't get the car back today. Hate the rental they stuck me in.
