Thanks Caleb, Just a couple questions. Are you going stock with this or maybe do a chrome bumper conversion. Or come over to the darkside. What ever you do i'm sure it will be great. I love to watch builds in progress. Good luck my MGB brother.

Looks like fun. Ignore the Weber haters, they can be made to run very well......and many an MGB is still on the road for future generations to enjoy because of Webers.



1974-1/2 Roadster, "Bumble Bee", Corvette Yellow - in shambles, wire wheels
1976 Roadster, "Virus", Sandglow - "driver" condition (stock + 32/36 Weber DGEV, cast iron header, 25D distributor), bolt on wheels, ON the road!

My first plan is to fix the rust first and then go from there

Hi Caleb. I'm just up the road from you in Granite Falls. The Catawba Valley British Motoring Club is based in Hickory if you have any interest in joining a club. There are a few of us B guys there. We get together a couple times a month and when it warms up we do some fun stuff. CVBMC.org is the website if you are interested. Good luck with the build, I'm in the middle of one too.
