In reply to # 3679524 by CarverBoldman eeesh, kinda scary....I was also thinking about getting a 1987 suzuki Samurai, but apparently, those are super bad if you get in a wreck....I like the MG look better anyway...kinda..eh, ok, there both my favorites..

Samurai's roll ove easy and are now cost more than they're worth.

Mike,

Although I've never hated (or loved) my rubber bumpers, the posts about the conversion processes have always kept me away from it (especially the turn signals and grill replacements). I'm a backyard mechanic when it comes to the engine, and I'm NOT a welder. But I'm intrigued by the simple turn signal mounting job mentioned here - and I think your end result looks good.

As for the grill - I've seen on other posts where a simple mesh is put over the end of the old bumper mounting points - just add an MG logo to the middle and I think it looks fairly good as well (it comes out flush with the front-end, not sunk in like the 74 and prior years, but I don't have a problem with that).

Keep us posted on what you do for the rear-end. Who knows... I might be pulling some bumpers this summer.

Good Luck.

Sheesh...

Guess I should have jumped to PAGE 8 before posting - I'm way behind in my reading (sorry for my prior post!)
