    Several folks have asked me to try and take some photos of the Front Andrex shocks that are mounted to my 53 TD. It is not a MK2 and apparently the presence of the front shocks is unusual. Here are a couple of photos, it is not the easiest place to photograph well. It think that the question is if these came from the factory on the car or were added later? Not sure if these images give you wha...

    Economy tip for ya - use worn washing up scourers, green or the white (non-scratch?), particularly the ones with sponge attached as they're easier to shape with and you can use the dampened sponge side to wipe off the muck caused by scouring and see your progress.

    If like me you do the washing up then you can decide how worn (or course or fine) these will be before being used for cleaning/p...

    have used synthetic steel wool when I stripped the paint off a WW II Avenger. Did a pretty good job as well combined with the paint remover.

    If you are going to use petrol as a solvent, be very careful. As you know, the stuff ignites very easily and petrol fumes are heavier than air so settle at the lowest level.

    If you must, do it outside, away from any ignition sources and keep an...

    Yes there is going to be a presence there. Steve Newton of the Heart of England Area will be organising. I may well attend too. The discount code will be printed in April's Mascot.

    This is what Steve wrote.

    MG TD Collection, Restoration Projects
    I am selling my life time collection of MG TDs, a purpose built trailer, books, and tools. There are 4 MGTDs and a fifth partial (frame and some sheet metal) parts car. Two are 1951 and 2 are 1952 (one 1952 is a TDC MK II Competition car). The extra frame/parts car is also a 1952. These cars are not cars that were put away and left to decay. They a...
