  • Stripped one of the old spare seat backs that i have. Very time consuming at the factory I would imagine, when they modified the seat back and base foam it made it much easier

        • I'm not having the whole car painted, just the door that needed welding and all that the bodyshop welded.

          • One door to paint, then put the doors and front wings, bumpers back on etc. Then back to me to finish, looking good

              • As Rimmers have a sale on and my last NOS pair went with the sale of my red MG Montego, I bought a pair of these at 2.90 each with my discount to put into the car. A bargain https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-PAM5436RNG

                        • The car has now been returned, and although the welding and sills are extremely good the other parts are not. Damage to both front wings and the mess that's left isn't what I was expecting . Battery is completely flat so the car had to be pushed into the garage

                          • Car hasn't even been washed and a lot of the parts not put back on or left hanging, more work for me then

                            • Roof lining and sunroof I will sort first as that's a job I need to do prior to sorting the interior, seats, carpet, electrics etc as nothing is in the interior and more just left not bolted/screwed in. The list has now grown considerably

                                Putting the interior back in
                                Headlining
                                Adjust the sunroof
                                Put exhaust on
                                Sort sticking boot and fuel flap
                                Big clean up
                                MOT with luck
                                So yeah next year I should be back to shows with a montego. Haven't done that for a bit. I do normally find some time to work on cars during October-January so hopefully it'll be completed by early 2020. The car does start on the button now and the engine is very smooth and quiet. Then possibly re-starting on my other MG Montego
                                In addition
                                Attach front splash shields
                                Attach front and rear seat belts and interior trim
                                Realign front and rear bumpers
                                Realign offside doors
                                Sort damage to front wings
                                Replace battery tray
                                Clean interior
                                Clean engine bay
                                Paint engine
                                And much more now that I can't think of
