Re: Last few MGB bits for sale to perspective builders

Hi Stu.

Regarding your rear springs.

How many miles have the springs done? I have the original springs on my car last changed in 1997!!!

How are they for ride height as my car currently rides quite high on the rear. Unsure whether these are comp springs ?

Many thanks

Slabside FIA/kidney bean wheels

Can anyone tell me if I can get hold of fia style or kidney bean style wheels for my hawk cobra slabside. I have seen many photos with these wheels on the slabside style car.

If anyone has any for sale I would be very interested if they will fit :D
