Talking What To Do With Worthless Rover Parts?

Make a RoverBot! Named Fred by my 3 year old son, Fred is comprised entirely of leftover Rover bits. Take a look and see what rare worthless parts you can spot. I still have some finish welding to do, as well and finishing his feet so he is free standing.

Fred got some finish welding and some shoes, and he now stands guard on the deck keeping a watchful on the garage.

Every once in a while we catch ourselves doing a double-take when we see the shadowy figure looming outside our kitchen window!

Someone stole the entire front axle assembly hub to hub from a 1959 Bentley from my driveway a few years ago.
