Re: BRA 289 - and on going the DVLA saga

Hi Neil, It will be difficult to get an invoice for the kit purchase but on balance the DVLA have been fairly reasonable I suppose. You should consider joining the club, on £35 / year at the moment and you get loads of discounts and the great magazine. Pictures available to post via the attachment t...

Re: Lift the dot studs

No idea why you are having a problem Simon, I've tapped loads of holes in Gerry's body shells and never had an issue. Even the 2BA ones. An option is to use Tennex male studs that are available in longer lengths and work fine with female lift-the-dots. A fixing nut can then be fitted and loctite'd on.

Re: Fitting a hard top.

Hi Simon, The Hawk LeMans hardtop is made to replicate the LeMans 289's of the 60's with the flatter rake of the track cars. Nigel is more than capable of making the hardtop fit the more vertical rake of the screen. There's a fair few man hours required to get it right and getting it "to be right". ...

Re: Last few MGB bits for sale to perspective builders

They are 2" lowered and classed as competition by suppliers.
In fact I've just checked them out on Moss's website where they are listed as £131.10 ea + shipping And probably vat too, I'm selling them too cheap :shock: :shock:

Hi Colin,
They are MGB springs so they should fit.

Re: To paint or not to paint....

I fitted the lift a dots before paint. The position is marked in the Gelcoat and there's normally quite a big flange area to fit the female fittings to suit in the hood or tonneau.

Re: Last few MGB bits for sale to perspective builders

Tony, replied to your PM, Jake these springs have done about 2000 miles. I was happy with my ride height and I was running without aluminium spacers which would further lower the back end (they are just blocks of aluminium and you would have to change the bolt for a longer one that is the central cl...

Re: Ford 302

Hi Nige, There isn't the room to utilise a flanged connection. As discussed over the phone. Not being cryptic but sometimes it's useful for people to try and see why, rather than just get an opinion spelt out to them. Many costly mistakes are a result of opinions rather than working it out for onese...
