This car is the ultimate "Wheeler Dealers" style vehicle. Bought for a steal spent thousands and we might make £500 profit. No allowance given to Ed China's Labour for working on the car for 6 months."Hold out your hand".How annoying does that programme become!Seriously this would of cost in excess of £25000 if it was a customer job and invoiced for.
MGB Roadster 1977 Flamenco Red 67,450 miles Tax Exempt Overdrive Servo Brakes Rebuilt Lead Free Engine.Complete body restoration to all areas. Detailed engine bay body coloured under front wings rear wings boot etc. Mechanical rebuild to all areas suspension fuel carburettors, exhaust brakes cooling springs etc. Everything is new or reconditioned.
Car was last used in 1989 and taken of the road by the previous owner who anticipated a home restoration. Acquired by me in 2017 i got a touch carried away. The car was stripped down to a bare shell. All external panel work was removed and the body shell was shot blasted to the engine bay boot and inner front wing and rear wing areas. The front wings, bonnet, boot and doors were sent for Chemical stripping. The doors were beyond repair and replaced with new Heritage Doors. The bonnet and boot were fine. The front wings were very good but received new lower panels headlamp retaining rimms and new bead strips prior to being etch primed ready for under wing repainting in Flamenco Red body colour.
The main body shell received new sill structures in full. Comprising of Castle rails, Inner Sills, Outer Sills, Footwell side members and associated end fillers and jacking points. All areas were spot welded together to replicate the original construction.The inner front wing areas were rebuilt with new box sections, bulkheads and triangular reinforcers.The rear wings had replacement lower half sections fitted along with inner/outer wheel arches. This means that the wheel arch edges are all new and allowing factory style spot welding together. The rear bulkhead between cockpit and boot space was replaced due to previous fitting of speakers in this area. The front valence and outer boot floors were also replaced. The revived body shell was protected for maximum rust prevention by paint to all internal areas.The external body work was prepared for paintwork in Two Pack Standox paint. Particular attention paid to line and finish.
The refit of exterior areas resulted in replacement of most areas including mouldings rubbers handles bumpers (including metal armatures front and rear) wheels hood frames etc.
The interior resulted in new carpets, trim crackled dash, refurbished seats fixtures and fittings.
Overall a completely rebuilt vehicle in better than new condition. It requires nothing but using and polishing please...
