I've likewise heard nothing but good things about RSV, I've got some pics of their operation somewhere...they had some very cool Rovers there and an old NAS 110 on a rock garden out front if I recall.

I didn't realize they moved, I always stopped in on weekend trips to Jamestown. Never was there when he was open. I need to go say hi some time, he always had great stuff out in the yard. I think Copley had trucks there?

Rich is a top notch stand up guy. Started working on my P38 back in 04. Builds the nicest Defenders I've seen out there. Guided me toward good NAS truck. Jamestown shop was great. Looks like they have expanded. He kept all of us Islanders rolling in style.

I never saw this thread until just now, although it included my name a couple of times. Yep, sort of dropped off this site quite a bit while Roverless during my two-year tour in Japan.

I haven't been to RI since rotating back to the U.S. last fall, so I haven't been to the new shop, but Rich really is a super guy and does good work. Tons of knowledge about Rovers.
