2 Minute MGB Restoration
We turned our previously orange, then red MGB GT into a James Bond style
silver. There must have been about 20 kilograms of body-filler before we
started, then another 20 kilograms after we'd finished!

added a cool keyless entry alarm system (hence the missing keyholes on the
