I can't imagine ANYONE that owns an MG to not be a DIYer, so I figure red that I would share one of my favorite links:

http://www.homemadetools.net

I've found some great little ideas and tools in almost all of it's sections, but the automotive has been very handy, especially for alignments, ramps, etc.

Hope that you also find it useful!

Regards,
CJ

Hello from Miami Clif, and thanks for that link smiling smiley It IS hard to imagine owning an MG (or anything vintage) w/out being totally DIY, but in my carport, sleeping next to my GT, is an unfortunate example of what happens when you try to keep one and have no fix-it abilities at all.

The MGB in question (a friend's '80 LE) is a rolling disaster. I've never seen so many mistakes made on 1 vehicle before eye rolling smiley It runs strong, thanks to a '70 hi comp motor and some sort of fast road cam, but that's the only positive to it. He has spent a bloody fortune on looks, gadgets, totally wrong parts, and bling ... on a B that he's wrecked THREE times (last time totalled and re-bought). It's so distorted the wheelbase is 1/2" shorter on driver's side eye popping smiley But it looks cool ...
