Well I was looking at the roof the other day thinking it looks like the paint has kinda warn down to the primer a bit and it could do with a freshen up so it might be time to crack the compressor out.....

Had a rather interesting weekend sorting the floor out. I finaly plucked up the currage to take the carpet up and see what the Japanese tin worms had been up to under there.

Image

Image

Thankfully these where the only 2 bits that had any rust on them at all, the rest of the floor is like new.

Image

So after 5 hours of dam hard work and my big bro coming to the rescue we have a solid floor, with new bits top and bottom so Mr MOT man should be ok with it, and the strange knocking noise when I go over a harsh bump has gone. And the upside to the hole thing is in the 5 hour welding experiance I managed to talk my brother in to getting an Alfa Spider to play on :lol:

Now all I have to do is find a MOT station in Nottingham with a tester man who is easily bribed :twisted:

I haven't died, just been silly busy with job change and a monster rewelding job, had a slight misshap on the way to the test station involving a ditch and a small amount on front and rear reconstruction....... The Upshot is that the little 3G is now no longer the daily drive and she can be restored properly (we won't mention the MGF replacement) and we did get her through the MOT in the end. Three of the four corners have been replaced with 2mm thick steel and the front nearside suspension assembly has been replaced, but not with all new parts. So I can look forward to the summer when we can take the old girl out to some shows :-)

I'm afraid due to the crap weather I wasn't able to take any photos of the welding.

But I do have this photo......

Image

And no I'm certainly not a hair dresser, I fancied a mid engined sports car and a NSX is slightly out of my price range :-)

Nooo the focus is on the wrong car :P

Has it had the headgasket done ? Or are you waiting for the time bomb ? Would be good little motors if it wasnt for the headgasket problems.

Also i have to ask why an MGF over say...an Mr2 ?

It has indeed had the head done, I bought it from a company that basically rebuild the topend and undo all the shortcuts made by Rover/BMW and then give the car a 15 month warranty, so if it dose give me any trouble I don't have to pay for it.

And the truth of the matter is that I always wanted a Fiat/Bertone X1/9 but as I like the back of my head not burnt to a crisp, I thought I would go for a modern alternative, the Mk2 MR2 is too big and the Mk3 is still to expensive, so when I found the company that do the bits to the MGFs I thought I'd go have a look. To be honest after the test drive I just had to have it, it's just such a basic little sports car, no PAS, ABS, or any interference. Oh and it dose have a Honda gearbox so it's not all bad :-)

But the most important thing is that it will give me the time to do the work on the 3g to keep her on the road!

I will bring the headlamp up soon, I haven't forgotten :-) Just been rather manic with work, but that should be calming down soon.

When I came up last, you mentioned a company that do new sills, I have totally forgotten the name of the company. I'm looking at getting a lockup and sorting the bodywork out properly.
But like I say, I'll have a think about what bits I need and send you a list
