    I totally agree that radials are better and safer (where there is a choice) - I always use them myself.

    Tony,
    Steve Brompton from down under has a pair of salvaged front pillars, he is looking at the cost to get them to blighty. I have no idea what the cost to me is going to be yet as I think Steve is working on this for me.
    However, if you could send me some photos, and Steve doesn't get back to me, I will certainly consider making you an offer.
    Would you have any idea of what the shipping...

    Spotted on YouTube, BMC crash testing Minis, 1300s and 1800s plus from 9 mins 34 secs, an MGB.
    The B appears to deform the least but note that rear axle movement.
    In any event you wouldn't want to to crash in any of them at any speed judging by the way they collapse. Sobering stuff.

    Ditto here - the central 3/4 of the tread.

    I strung a steel cable across the ceiling using threaded eyes at each end. I then hung the big pieces on the cable with appropriate wire. Car is long done but cable is there forever!

    I'm beginning to work with the slow restoration of an MGTD, trying to decide how deeply to get into the dismantling.

    I have already removed the wings and radiator and completely dismantled the front suspension and steering to expose the frame.

    I have removed the floorboards to further expose the frame. It makes sense to remove the tub.

    I have received from a few folks h...

    Gary,

    I've has two plugs done - both in relatively recent driving years. Both on our family cars - not the wire wheeled 'B', so not really driven to extremes though both of reasonably high k's. The second is currently on our Mazda Tribute. Never had any issue with either. The first lasted through to eventual tyre replacement caused by normal wear.

    I had not heard of the myth ...

  • t lange19 January 2019

    The whole world of judging - on various different levels of professionality - is so arcane that I do not understand it. I have heard of any cars deemed "unauthentic" or with "unoriginal" features (like Mark II cars), that ARE demonstrably original, so the judge falls short in his knowledge of the specific model. Yet I see cars with wood dashes and chrome valve covers win regularly over cars with...

    How about this for a 'plug'? Made for a bit of a bumpy ride.

    But are you just being mischievous, hoping to start another war? Repairing tread punctures with a rubber plug, usually mushroom-headed in the UK, and with adhesive, has been going on for decades. But like most things I'm sure someone will come along and say it is dangerous.

  • R WILSON19 January 2019

    You mention the engine mountings - in the front engine mount, has a metal plate, or both, become unbonded from the centre rubber block.
