I dunno, my wife thought it was pretty funny when I pulled a set of recaros out of the M6 to play Gran Turismo on the Playstation.

In all fairness, I was fixing the recline mechanism, but it was so much fun the seats didnt go back in immediately!

Smile wife helping

No I'm very much married for 18 years now but in her old age she is getting soft. She gave me 30 days to finish the engine install and have the body mounted. Now if the job will stop bothering me to do work also.


Last night she even help with the sound mat.

Mmh. 18 years must be the magic number then. I'll tell you how it goes next year for me, but until then, I don't dare bring my rover crap into the house.

I do get away with taking up 2 bays in the garage though

Today I get the FATMAT installed for sound, and the bulkhead removal bar mounted. In the next couple of days I need to install the 3.9 engine and auto box. Then I have to wait for this thing called work to give another weekend off and mount the body to the chassis.

I oreded three rear plates today . I'm told they are made from cast ali and 6-8mm thick. It should take 2-3 weeks for delivery. If they do not ship to the US let me know.

I've ordered from them a couple times - good folks. Shipping to the states is fortunately cheap since its just a padded envelope.

On the Falon online order form it shows 17.49% tax and 14.90% tax on shipping. Wow.
Do we have to pay those taxes for export orders to the US?

Yes for the short answer. The online store only bills as if you order in the UK. Additionally they do not do phone oreders.

Just got back home

Well I just got back from Afghanistan last weekend so I made very little progress the last month. I did manage to get more checker plate on today as I was off work.

Ok, so your 30 days are up and you still have your tub (and doors and hood) in the house. Your wife is either *really* good, or getting *really* soft!

Oh, looks great!

Today I got the bulkhead and rear tub fitted and finished minor chassis item before I mounted them. Now is the long hard part of the bulkhead build-up and electrics install and the rewiring to adapt for the additional items. Can anyone show me a picture of the ECU mounting? Or does anyone know of extension cables.

Its gonna be great. I pretty much envy the hell out of you for being able to build up your rover project in ol' blighty.

If I was there I'd have to buy a Routemaster.
