Hi all, I joined up here a while ago but was mainly active on the other forum however I really don't like the way that's going or Christopher's attitude to his 'customers' so I'm making the switch!

I've been into Rovers and MG's all my life and have so far owned quite a few, I will post a list when I have enough time! At the moment we have a 2003 ZT-T and 2004 ZS 180, both with LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas) and also my lifetime car which was my grandfathers mk1c Rover Sterling. I'm also an admin over at http://rover800.info which I'm working on upgrading at the moment.

Anyway here's a few pics of my babies!

Ah ha, a fellow geek eh? ;)

I think we're probably quite a bit smaller, however on the upside I own half the company :-D
It's interesting work though and as a bonus I spend 90% of my time working from my garden office which makes the commute very easy!

I'm a geek on the network cabling side of the company,

I spend my days playing with cat5e & cat 6 cables and some fibre optics now and then.

Give me a shout if you need anything doing ;)

Will do! I hate cabling. When I built the garden office I ran a lot of points round it and the terminations were driving me mad by the end. Mine normally test OK, but I'll be the first to admit I'm very slow compared to guys that just do cabling. I think I terminated about a dozen before I got bored and left the rest hanging to be done at a later date!

I had a Sterling 800 very similar to that, even down to the same wheels. Learnt my way around the inside of autoboxes because of it, and in a way had quite an effect on my working life as a result.

I still have a fibre cable to install at one site but I have to wait until all the bats have gone.
