Fitted the replacement bonnet this morning Thanks to the mrs for helping as my lad is still in bed What's wrong with youths today?!! God I'm turning into my old man! Bit of minor transformation this weekend new plates, badges, and bonnet Just needs the ns wing and door painted to make it mint This should be done by a good mate next week
Just a few hours on the mgf today,drained the coolant and bled the system and put new antifreeze coolant in That's given me peace of mind as it will be in the garage over the winter months, young George has started learning a bit of bodywork by working on the old bonnet, he has stripped it back and primed it with aerosol primer and is then going to practice a bit of filling on the damaged front lip, FairPlay to him he's showing some good skills so far
Picked up some vactan rust prevention products from a firm in belvedere kent performance chemicals This stuff is superb I treated both subframes and the sill areas this morning , can't recommend this product enough I've used it before and it's superb, anyone looking to treat there car I'd contact the firm prices are excellent and they ship all over the world, just need to hammerite the underside now which I will do over the xmas break
Hopefully that'll keep the dreaded rust bug at bay. Probably telling my gtanny how to suck eggs but have you checked the bottom front suspension arms. Always a potential rot spot. Ps on my way to pick up my latest K Series powered machine.
Cheers peter yea suspension arms are good The only bit of rust is the area shown on the sill Which is very minor,going to hamerite and waxoyl over xmas,looking forward to pics of your new ride btw....merry xmas,Dan
Three hours this morning spent under the mgf Now fully under sealed and waxoyled, as I had completed all my xmas shopping and family chores!! Now it's time to meet all the fellas of our family and go to the pub for a few beers then back to the inlaws with all the family
A good mornings work at a breakers down in Medway area Me and my lad George got some leather seats for the mg Good price and in good nick, just goin to give them a feed And fit them in today, anybody In the kent area needing mgf bits the yard has two cars in and a good few other rover cars and two s type jags
Ah nice, thought it would be there, either their or bobbins but I've gone off of bobbins recently. Likewise, the last time I was over there, about 8 years ago they us a Mk1 fiesta on the road for £750 and two clubman estates.
Yep car has been transformed into a great near mint one All for less than £700 , it's ready to go back on the road now I just need to get that scratch on the near side wing and door sorted, think I'm going to wait until march time to start Using it, it's so clean it would be a shame to use it in this weather,,work on the sons escort resumes now!
