Sadly Blue was left standing once her MOT ran out due to changes in circumstances here and distinct lack of income. I have managed to obtaina pair of goor rear calipers as the handbrake lever seal on her original are shot and the handbrake mach inside has rusted to hell resulting in the handbrake not working.
So we can replace those and bleed th system but once up on stands and wheels off it was noticed that the upper ball joint thatwas replaced in 2014 the boot ahs split badly and the ball joint is all rusted to need replacing again. Was not pleased about this so have bought a better quality joint, hopefully, this time. Blue will also get some different front tyres as those Pirellis are showing their age not sure what as yet but front tyres need replacing.
We also need a new CAT as have stolen Blues to put on the 75th as she failed on emissions. Once this is all done and she has a new MOT Blue is goign to be sold as we are moving and there will not be room for my 5 cars so Blue and the Rover 623 will be sold the Rover 75 will get new brakes and an an MOT and "Elsie" will also get her sills and rear arches sorted and an MOT. Not sure about what to do with "Elsie" my VVC as yet.
Sad we have to sell Blue as I am only her 2nd owner and she drives very well and of course we have he dyno sheets here showing that she is putting out a few extra BHP.
