Ok so being bored and not much new pics on here to look at, thought id share a few of mine.
Since my MR was written off sept last year, i bought this replacement as tbh i fell in love with it at first sight :lol:
Allways fancied a high power one so bit the bullet and took the plunge.

Now the car needed a little TLC cosmetic wise, especially being a ocd kinda guy lol, swirls,chips,horrible cond lights (front and back) grotty wheels, etc etc. The list could go on and on in the eyes of a fettler lol.
So the main selling point was the solid chasis with nooo rot to rear rails etc, freshly built 2.3 MG auto's stroker engine and the nice power she's running.
So with under the bonnet generally being the dearest part to achieve i figured it would leave a tad to refresh it to former glory.

Now a couple folk thought i was a little mad going as far as i did with it, but if its worth doing, its worth doing right :smthumbup

First up..... Full respray:eek:

Comments welcome and lots more to come as im nearing the end now
:)

:lol: cheers craig.. Yeh it wasnt totally ****d, just sat ther looking a tad sorry for itsen, ex mag featured car just been neglected cosmetically, and in need of a good new home to bring her back to former glory. Especially having a brand new build less than 2k miles ago. Once the research on the cars history was done, tracing its steps as to who did what, and a good few fonecalls to MG's with a huuuge list of questions and quereys, my mind was set to give her a good home, after MADMAT filled me with confidence on the mechanical side :)
And im more than glad i whent with my love at first sight story :crackup:

One of the only few things remaining to do now is let you work youre magic and have a lil reunite do.:smthumbup
