Its an MGF - therefore add 50% of time to all 'small' jobs, then 350% to any 'big' job.

That way you wont be disappointed when you don't get to end of your list this weekend

For .org forum only search results in Google, add "site:mg-rover.org" after your search criteria

Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself.

I had a quote to swap the front subframe of four hours, it has taken me four months so far.

Ok, so he took me 3 hours the following (including bringing all the tools up/down):

* Engine screw tightening (cam cover and HT cover)
* Clutch bleed
* New clutch bleed nipple cover (can be fiddly...)
* Added screw to exahust menifold shield and to engine bay cover (rattle still there...)
* Rear hood seal refurbish: happy with the seal and look of it


I miserably failed in:
change battery clamp
adjust handbrake cable
