Hi Michael.Welcome to MGC ownership. It looks like you have an interesting project on your hands.My good friend Peter Dunlop and I resurrected the New Zealand MGC Register in late 2010 and now have an active group. We had our best turnout ever recently, 5 roadsters and 5 GTs at a get-together recently. If you search "MGCs in New Zealand" on Youtube you will find a couple of movies that I took that day. We have 60 MGCs in our NZ Register.Of possible interest to you is that we have a wealth of technical knowledge available amongst our group, so if you have any questions while doing the restoration, just drop me a line and I will try to get the answers for you.I went to England in May last year and attended UK MGC Day, making some valuable contacts in that part of the world. I spent three days at the Motor Heritage Museum looking through the factory build records for the MGC, bringing that information back for our New Zealand owners.Our register newsletters are archived on our register page at www.mgclub.org.nz,

Thanks Ian - I will take you up on your offer and when I have questions - and I will - e mail you! I envy you being able to spend 3 days at the Motor Heritage Museum!There are not many "C's" in my part of Canada - not sure how many but I think it is around 3, there are quite a few across the border in Michigan and Ohio it seems...I will also hit You Tube and view the videos!Thanks again and have a great day.Mike
