Hi JohnI think you need a larger trailer:-).Me? I'm an accounting teacher with no idea about fixing my new (last week) 1973 MGB. You are my first email to people to try to get a handle on where to begin. One thing I know is that the brake lines need routing, and that is what caught my attention in your post. What does that mean and why did you think it too much to do yourself? I want to be able to use the B and not have it sitting in the garage waiting for me to finish a job.Tim

Hey Tim! Thanks for the post - & good luck with your car. I think I actually could've handled the routing & installation of new lines, but not in my current garage situation. It just seems like a job best suited to having the car on a nice tall hydraulic lift as opposed to me scooting around on a creeper with the thing just 18" or so off the ground on jack stands. Besides, I've got a guy who's doing it on a barter basis, so there's that...! Have fun with your car!!!

Sadly, there's a good number of us who feel your pain. My advise is to plan a day or two ahead by pre-soaking everything in PB Blaster and then keeping your Dremel nearby when it's time for removal. I've slotted, drilled, and cut off more screws on my '73 and '75 than I have taken off as intended. Someone commented when I started on my '75 years ago asking whether I would prefer if the Brits had done like the Italians and welded the fenders on to the car rather than used slotted screws. My answer was a resounding "yes!", at least then I know to reach for the cut off wheel right away! Good luck with the rust and the red, at least you're making progress!

Take your time.Take lots of photos before, during, and after.Keep a log of sequence of disassembly with special notes as required.Take lots of photos and put files in a secure place. Can't stress enough.If it is too hard, you are doing it wrongly.Enjoy!!!
