  1. !UPDATE! 3/1/20 I've managed to get the carpet in the boot!! But I still to get the stereo and speakers installed!! (Just another thing to do!!) Change the window seal straps!! And get the surface rust off his headlamp cover!! I am thinking of getting some new wheels for him too!! They're the original factory style 13" ones!! Steve of SS-preparations has offered me the ones that have just come off his very own tr7!! They cost quite a bit!! But it should be worth it!! As for the key!! I ordered the wrong one famous last words!! 😡 Then the main one the ignition key snapp
  2. Hi folks, Many thanks!!For the nice compliments on my new(ish) acquisition!! Unfortunately the headgasket went only a couple weeks after I bought him!! But I suppose that’s just the risk you take with these old cars!! There’s probably not much chance of it happening again!! But I’m quite tempted to flog my lovely MGF trophy for an even nicer GT6 MKII(in white)!! Does anybody know where I could get hold of one?!! HUGH

  5. !UPDATE! 6/8/19 I have sourced a brand new flashy retro stereo for Tom with modern functions!! I have had a new key cut do we won't be be able to get locked out anymore!! Just to need to tidy up the boot with a flashy new carpet and soundproofing!! Maybe replace the window seals and get rid of the surface rust on the headlamp covers!! HUGH

  15. All very well Clive but ss preparations is all the way over in Lancashire and I live all over the way over in Newcastle it would be quite hard to get my tr7 all the way over there and how would we know the work was being done?!! But would a normal garage really not have those?!! HUGH
