    Philip - that car is really starting to look fantastic. Really looking forward to seeing it in the flesh when you are ready.

    I don’t think it will be quite ready for MG Andrew. Would be great if it was.
    Think he is targeting Taupo Historic GP in January.

    In for wheel alignment dummy up in the morning, panelbeaters Friday for the front flares and wedge nose and a few other small imperfections. Has to be at the painters before X-Mas so his boys can do it as a fill in over the X-mas/New Year break.

    Serious question here - how do you do a wheel alignment dummy up ( what is a dummy up anyway?? ) with no engine and gearbox? It will sit differently with all that extra weight not there.

    Easy Andrew, remove the front springs and chock the suspension arms so the car sits at ride height, to obtain the correct suspension arm angles and roll center to roll axis diamentions the inner lower pivot bolt has to be a certain measurement from its center to the ground level, all a no-brainer and once done I take it to my wheel alignment shop to set the camber, caster and toe set(dummied up), all this will be redone once the car is final finished and assembled.

    I build every car this way because once its painted and assembled, etc you don't want to go chopping, drilling and grinding to obtain these critical measurements, remember its about that making the car handle best working within the factory componentry and parts. Dale M

    The MG Classic is next weekend and we have a fantastic Feilding of car attending this year.
    While our grid is down on numbers the quality is there.
    9 HMC and 12 HSC cars so 21 in total.

    This is the best event in the lower North Island and is worth coming to see and MG do a great job of it.
    Thanks to Ron and his team.

    Cheers

    "Keep it Small and Keep it All" Bruce, more than happy with that number and infact all I expected, we want Quality not Quantity.
