During the preparations for Christmas, I've found some time to take the sump off the Rover V8 and give it some attention. 

Once degreased with alternating uses of Gunk and White Spirit, it turns out to be an interesting homemade affair. 

Thankfully the baffle plate wasn't hiding too much sludge, and no engine parts fell out as I gave it the final few shakes. 

So once clean and dry, a quick coat of Red Oxide :

Then 2 days later some black gloss,

and it's ready to go back on.
