I'm just kidding, this is totally safe for work. I took the top off the ol' MGBeater and am hoping to have the frame spray painted and properly straightened before I apply the new top. Oh by the way, I bought a new top.
Part of me wishes I didn't because a) it was a lot of money and b) the old one wasn't terrible, but whatever helps get this thing out of my garage the fastest, I'll manage.
Mechanically, this thing runs like a top! We've taken it down the road quite a few times now and have found that it's not cold blooded. Once we got the clutch worked in (had to replace the slave and clutch master) we got this thing shifting smooth and riding nice. Choke likes to hang up, but that also could have been because it was hanging outside the car when we bought it. That's now back in place, we'll see if it helps.
Next up is pulling the motor and replacing all the gaskets. I ordered several kits from Moss in order to hopefully find where the oil is seeping and stop if from continuing. It could also use a coat of fresh blue spray paint as well.
Interior needs to be sorted, mainly the carpets. One of this car's drawbacks when I sell it will be the massive tear in the drivers seat. Personally it doesn't bother me, so I'm more than happy keeping it there for the next owner to deal with. Oh, and the pioneer stereo is a must on this thing. I applaud whoever left a Now That's What I Call Music 6 CD in there for me to enjoy.
Until next time, I'm hoping MG doesn't stand for Many Gremlins, because I've already found enough to make me want to crash the car into a tree.
