  • Great progress, but can a Rover ever really be "done"? (mine won't be, but that's just me).

      Joseph Lucas would be proud of that post count.

      • Ha! It most definitely will never be "done"... I just want to get to a point where my projects are "nice to haves" versus "absolutely must get done."

        I bought those springs early last summer and should have put them in immediately. The ride is so much better than the rust clapped out springs and shocks that were on it. Just to close the loop on this chapter - I took it on a 25 mile shake down run this morning and aimed for potholes and man hole covers and any other bump I could find. To say the change is remarkable doesn't do it justice. Instead of riding like a 1969 glorified tractor, this thing now rides at least as good as a Chevy Vega from the mid-to-late 70's!

        • Yeah, as soon as my rebuilt drive train went in, the steam kind of went out of all the other projects on the list. I'm more likely to drive it now instead of work on it, but that might change withe the seasons. If it's ever "done" that means I've grown bored with it.

          I helped a friend rebuild his 2A that has leaf springs versus parabolics. The leafs don't roll as much in corners, but every crack in the pavement is a shocker. I like my para's better, but have never needed or lived with leaf springs.

          I hadn't noticed the 666 post number! You're right, Lucas would relate that that.

          • Looks great! Did you fix the hole under the bump stop?
            There is nothing more dangerous than those who seek to alter the will of men through force or deception rather than logic.

              Hi, I did fix the hole. Waiting on new bump stops from Trevor. (THANK YOU Trevor!)

              But this was the FIRST welding project I've ever done on my own. There's no friggin way I'm posting a picture of my nasty-ass, booger-welded patch on this forum. Especially after some of the artwork you and others have posted! Let's just say a slathering of black chassis paint and Trevor's bump stop will cover my "work" perfectly!
