    I agree. I have got an original frogeye one but it played up and I decided it wasn't worth the risk after much fettling. They were pretty cheaply made so after 50 plus years are probably past their best.

    There is a simple (safe) formula to follow as far as reducing compression against boost pressure
    But
    First, is your engine 1250 or 1500
    What is the octane rating of the fuel you will be using

    I dont know If you can get HG stuff "Down-under" Mike but their mirror and glass cleaner works brilliantly. It is also really quick and easy to use, just spray on, a few wipes and the glass shines. Good on removing bugs too. 2.70 a bottle though.

    Cheers

    A friend of mine made his own mix. The best I've ever used.. 1/4 Isopropyl alcohol, 1/4 clear ammonia, one tablespoon of Dawn dishwashing liquid and the other 1/2 water. Wipe the glass with newspapers and you will have clear windows without streaking.

    I have a perspex sports screen. Whilst I can use the wipers I prefer not to as there is too much risk of scratching with road dirt hitting the screen. I use RainX 2 in 1 Glass Cleaner + Rain Repellent. Works extremely well.

    The other one that I occasionally use on my modern Euro box Is Mer Windscreen Cleaner. Again, it works well. That said I tend to use the RainX as my preferred option, ce...

    With the Mirage Garage SC and using a standard gasket of 1.14 mm. will give a considerable increase of pressure compared to original design. Is it better fuel making that possible? Or is it advisable to reduce pressure by using thicker gaskets? And if so, how much?

    Willem, Thanks for the info. I am going to have my engine and gearbox modified by Peter Edney to 1500 fast road and would like to make sure the brakes are uprated also. If anyone reads this and has any MGA front suspension for sale, please get in touch. I guess I will need a servo modification too!

    Cheers.
    Mick.

    A few years ago I had plastic coated braided steel lengths made up with loops on each end - made by a rope and tackle outfit. Used them for years on one job at work. Later, I used them for engine extraction and they were perfect however, I helped a friend remove the large, beautiful and very valuable engine from his Lancia Aurelia. As I lowered it down almost to ground level one of the loops slipp...

    Thanks Bob. There's some original ones on ebay but I'd worry about reliability with a part that's been 'weathered". Maybe a new one then.
