1939 ROVER 16

The Rover is back from the paint shop and looking good.  We are now in the process of fitting it up.  This includes refitting the front and rear wings using wing piping; making up the doors with their handles, window glass, winders, etc; and building up the chrome that has been re-plated (lights, bumpers, radiator surround, door handles and so on) then fitting it back onto the car.

All the wood trim will be refitted shortly and new carpets are being made.  The original leather seats have all been thoroughly cleaned and the leather fed with hide care.
