If you don't have any spare wheels the pin can be cut out,cleaned up and re-used 180 degrees out,and maybe re-locate the park cam 180 degrees also...

John ;)

John, I will have the clap hands wipers so if I'm understanding right my mgb 2 speed will have a little too much sweep as is so I would be best to modify my wheel. Would a minor 1000 wheel be a direct swap over ?thanks for the info this is all new to me so I'm still learning

plastic orange wrote:A 6mm round steel bar either welded or glued in the return edge at the front of the bonnet stiffens things up no end and stops the usual cracking and splits that form. Mine also has a centre brace made from round bar which goes across in roughly the same location as original. This is welded in the centre of the bonnet and makes things nice and stable.

I like the idea of the round rod on the front edge that is a real problem area and that would greatly help support it, the dual hood props are a good idea too. I'll give it some thought and come up with something probably some type of mix of your and dunks ideas thanks for the help on this

Going to be putting in a digital gauge cluster so needed to cut off the raised part of the glove box and make it all flat and grind smooth

I put together the gauge cluster the other day, it's made by intellitronics it seems like a nice piece. It looks great when it's lit up

Working on the front end getting it fitted, I modified an original good crossmember and modified an original hood prop works good

Blacked out the center gauge for now, I might do something with it later but for now I think it looks decent
