    Thanks Guy, everything seems to be 3x2, bearers, frame work, roof joists and you weren't off topic as we're talking sheds/garages anyway!
    I'm leaning (rather me than the shed) to lining it so thanks Greybeard for that tip and for the offer to put it up - tea and biscuits while it's going up and beer and sandwiches when we're sat down admiring our handiwork; just let me know when! :)

    Mathew and Steve.

    Thanks. We have used the Tregister before and it shows the production records for the car, but no previous owner registry.

    Would be great if you could check on the original equipment/specifications and export information. But, as I understand, that is only available for later TDs and TFs.

    Charlie: Your car and mine seemed to have had the same problem. After the correction of vacuum leaks and going over the recent tune up, it runs very well now. Also, since the temps and humidity are not in the 90's now has made a huge difference.

    Went to an MG event this past weekend (135 miles away) with the temps in the 70's and 80's and much lower humidity, the temp gauge stayed to the l...

    I recently spoke with a fellow who has one of these:-
    He said it will start his straight-six TR5 with a totally dead battery. - Not cheap though

    If you are removing the needle to remove the faces, first lift the blade over the stop pin to allow it to return to the off load point.
    Take note of where it rests and replace in the exact point or your instruments will misread.

    Thanks Doug. All helpful.

    Not sure about the seat post clamp on your bike though. Doesn't that just provide 3 hour videos of your crotch? ;-)

    I bought a GoPro 3+ Black camera for recording my Track Day efforts, touring holidays and cycling. To see the field of view [FoV] I also bought the optional LCD back although smartphone owners can view via a free App.

    The narrow [ie telephoto] FoV setting is still fairly wide so including surroundings which is ideal for touring etc.

    I have a second internal battery and find it suffi...

    If the corrugated plastic tube has come off the steel demister vent, it's quite easy to re-attach. A bit more difficult it it's come away from the heater box outlet, but both do-able without much difficulty or dismantling.

    have tried velcro. Lasted about a week on the driver's side :(
    Added rubber mats (logo'd variety) and now the carpets stay put :)
