Unless you park in front of the banana stand! ;)

Great job on the resto - how long did it take you?

I bought the Rover in September. It was in good shape when I got it. Just needed new interior, paint and general clean up. It not perfect but I can at least head down the service roads and not worry about scratches.

In the Rover world, 5 months does not qualify for "finally on the road". :)

I think you need to be at least over 5 years before you can use that phrase.

I'm a little Anal, when I start a project it will drive me nuts until I finish. 5 months was driving me crazy.
