    • As you can see the older type is an alloy inner surround but the newer is plastic so cheaper to make.

      • Doorcards finished, will be using the small retaining clips as per original on three of the doors as I've near run out of the small white brackets I've used to upgrade in the past. Had to adapt another rear card from a later model with electric windows, New speakers also on so just have to remove the blue tape on the rear card. No idea how old that is.

          • More done today, 3 door cards on, new speakers all working, steering column surround back on, original digital display back in the car, and back to 54,000 miles. Rear seat bolsters in, did the same to the drivers side door mirror to a new one, both are now on the car. Just need to find 2 rear door brackets somewhere in my spares to put the last door card on then the interior is finished. Also managed to get a second radiator that's being modified from an MGF one

            • Today was cleaning day as the engine and bay are covered in old oil and I'm getting oily each time I open the bonnet. First coat of red engine paint on, NOS Radiator on, Replacement fuel filter on. Removed the expansion tank, washer bottle, and air filter housing for cleaning and painting. Unfortunately an oil pipe broke, breather pipe junction fell apart, thermostat housing top small pipe broke in half. I have replacement for the thermostat housing top and will fit that at a later date. Luckily the thermostat top bolts came out with any problems, but I will clean up the threads before putting back on

              • More done over the past few days, Engine block now has 3 coats of paint but before I put the final coat on I just had to do something about the black cylinder head as I don't like it. black paint now slowly being removed back to the original alloy colour. Oil breather now back on, thermostat and cover now on, cleaned expansion tank also now on, the amount of rust in it was unreal but its clean now. Also cleaned up and ready to put back on is the washer bottle after I clean up the back of the engine bay. Distributor I've also removed and ready to replaced with a new one from my spares as it's a bit knackered

                • That's much better, and another layer of red paint before the rain came and I had to go to work. Should clean up a treat when I give it another rub down. It's not going to be as clean as my red MG Montego but at least I won't get covered in oil everytime I open the bonnet

                  • Starting to sort the oil pipe insulation as that's soaked in old oil
