A discussion has been ensuing about two items on the Australian-assembled MGB, regarding the painting of the master cylinder bracket and the battery box cover. It (APPEARS) that Enfield cars had both these items painted body colour whilst Zetland cars were both black. Can anybody add to this discussion?

Hello Roger,

Just to kick this along.

I believe both parts were painted off-body.

The Battery Cover being body colour, and the Master Cylinder Bracket being matt/dull black

If original, anything else would be a production anomaly

Best Regards - GV
