Today, I removed and replaced the wind wing rubber seal and replaced the rest of the rubber on both doors. Pretty easy and now looks great.
Will prolly have more winter projects like master cylinder and brake bleed. You gotta stop before you can go!

Adjusted the valves and installed a new alloy valve cover (Christmas present from my wife) and tomorrow I'll put a new dash cover (Christmas present from my grandchildren).

Yesterday afternoon, members of the Moss tech staff had a road trip to my home where we test fitted Pace Setter exhaust systems to my 1967 GT.

The car when bought had an unused Pace Setter system that had been purchased and partially installed in 1984. This was compared to the current system and also to a take off stock type system.

The intention is to work with the manufacturer to solve the fit issues on the B.

We also did some test fitting of chrome shell grilles to the car where we found that my car had some body work done to the front left fender : (

After that, I changed the oil on my Rover SD1 and took my wife out for 1/2 price Lasagna in the car.

Sorry, the only B driving I did was moving my 1970 B out of the shop so I could put the GT on the lift.

Kelvin, how'd the test fit go? I've got the rear portion of the Pacesetter Monza sitting on the floor because it will take some added bending and perhaps cutting to get it to hang properly. I've decided to hang the rear muffler first to get it to poke out the right length for aesthetics and do the tweeking with the mid muffler and pipes.
What did you learn?

Topped off the carb dashpots, fixed a right rear turn signal problem, got it inspected (it passed), then drove the snot out of it for a half hour. It was a balmy 68 degrees.

All is right with the world. Or, at least my little corner of it.

Discovered the Brake MC was leaking badly so removed the pedal box & started cleaning up the rusty oily mess.
Stripped down the MC & purchased a repair kit from my local MG guru.
Bore of MC feels good with no pitts so hoping new rubber will do the trick.

Let's see, took off the cover, went to the beer distributor (Jamaicen Red Stripe), to the hardware store, to the bank, to the grocery store, to the post office and for a few more mile cruise- 42 degrees here, great weather to have the window zipped out and hit the back roads!

Drove ole Yeller down the mud covered road, to the rain soaked highway, and into town to the grocery store.

Windows fogged up like He"", but what can you do? Still can't find all the leaks in the cabin.

77 MGB - Four tone paint -Pertronix - hood props - cheap tires - new springs all around - mixture of poly and rubber bushings- fuzzy seatcovers - stereo out of old F150 pickup -runs flawlessly and drives nice.

78 MGB - Done right by a good PO, and I only bought it. Tell Jim how nice it is. But I did put in a Datsun 5 speed.

53 TD Mark II - a work in progress.

Yesterday I charged the battery so I could start and move it to unearth the snowblower that lives in front of it all summer. Wintertime the snowblower gets front stage. Car started and ran fine. Snowblower needed a little carb tweaking....dang crap gas these days.

Well, two days ago I finished stripping a 1970 MGB for parts. I have a complete wire wheel conversion complete with the proper diff and full front and rear suspension. The shell is on wheels and must be picked up. Open to offers.
