Thanks to a member here, Jonathan Seal, I became aware of a finned alluminum Diff cover that is available for our cars. It fits in perfectly with what I've done with my car!!! It's been ordered and is on it's way from across the pond!

Keep up the wonderful work...

Enjoying MG

Your car looks fin-tastic.



I don't know. It's always smoked like that/made that sound/done that.

Battery box , I actually had plans to build in a cooler in one of the areas where the batteries used to be, but it didn't really work out and wouldn't have held much beer....

Unfortunately, no one will see it unless the car is on a lift...

If you take it to a show, you should do like the hot rod guys do at the big shows.....either put it on stands or jack up one side and put mirrors underneath...

Anybody else see that Albert Finney just passed away.....?

If this car isn’t known as “Albert”, then that was an opportunity missed.
