    Hi Richard,

    Thanks for the sorn info on the car.

    It must be stored somewhere, perhaps undergoing restoration.

    Hopefully it is owned by an enthusiast who keeps in touch with owners sites like this one.

    I have had 3 MGAs, in the 70s and since 2001, none of which had/have the felt. I might just try it.

    Like you I am new to the BBS and recently bought an MGB though in my case it is a GT. I had Triumph spitfires and an MG midget when considerably younger and while I have wanted a classic for years I always persuaded myself out of it.

    I'm trying to find the current owner of a MG Midget registration number AEO 718C.
    Does anyone recognise the number or know the whereabouts of the car?
    I have some old photos of the car that the owner might be interested in seeing.

    Thanks Graham
    I was suprised that looking for felt pads under the bonnets at the Mga day very few had them fitted. Were they only fitted to latter cars and does it help to force the air through the rad? Brian

    Hi All
    Thanks for comments. Went to MGA Day at Upton House. Looked at all the A's but could not find colour of hood frame. Mine seems to be greenish beige. Can anyone give me a colour reference. Just been to Brown and Gammons today to pick up parts for rebuild and ordered interior trim and seat kits. Thanks Brian
