      Its been a good few years since then. I do have stuff like coolant hoses, indicator and wiper stalks etc One day I'll make a list and put it on here
      Agree, that early steering airbag wheel has to go.I only have a large spline steering wheel and airbag.

          No plans to sell anything at the moment. I'm enjoying working on them. If anything goes, it will be the Ur first.

              The Avant has gone in the barn for the winter and the Coupe has moved into the workshop. First look underneath since buying and I have quite a bit to do.










              So made a start dropping the oil and removing the front bumper ready to do cambelt. The oil cooler is done for as is the nissens radiator.

              The underside is crusty but no serious rust so far.

              The exhaust is a strange mix up.


              So to begin with I’m deleting the aux rad and doing the mgb oil cooler mod. I have a spare 7a non aux hose here already. Then I will replace the radiator with a Behr one.
              Front brakes will be upgraded and everything else tidied up.

              When I removed the front bumper I see the original horns are still there. Only one is working though.

                    Yes. Early service history is from Exeter.

                      Busy afternoon in the garage.


                      Big boys toys came out for the crank bolt. Thread lock has been used.


                      Looks like it’s had a new cylinder head.
