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!
We then tidied up the interior with new carpets & a new stereo, then I added a cool keyless entry alarm system (hence the missing keyholes on the doors).
Turned out pretty good.
Raspberry Pi + TV / DVD / GPS / Reversing Camera installed in my car.
My car now has a Raspberry Pi computer and this cool screen!
The unit plays DVDs, has GPS, displays TV, has Bluetooth (phone calls +
music), reversing camera (comes on automatically when I put the car in
reverse gear), MP3/MPEG4 player, CD/radio etc, and an input for my
Raspberry Pi computer.
For photos on how I did all this stuff, and videos of the other gadgets in
the car, check out my website www.suzukiswift.info

This is a mainly cosmetic restoration on a 1973 MGB. The car was presented
to the owner during a recent birthday celebration. He has not driven it in
20 years, and did not realize it was being done.

Hi All, 27th March 2010, Well the month of March is getting better for me.
The fan belt has got to be tightened and the tappets set again but at least
I can now move the car. No leaks of any oil or water anywhere. Great /
fantastic a smile on my face at last.

Work on my MGB by Classic Car Services, MGOC recommended
If you view this video on fullscreen you might appreciate the workmanship
I purchased my MGB in 1999. Late 2007 I decided to give it a facelift so
chose Classic Car Services, Ledian Farm Industrial Estate, Leeds, Maidstone
from my MG Owners Club recommended directory. There were several times I
had to return to the garage because of things I was unhappy with. The
bonnet did not fit as good as the old one. The overdrive did not work after
a new wiring loom was fitted, it was suggested that I had been driving
around since 1999 with overdrive on, it transpired that they had not
connected it correctly. I later found the windscreen heating ducting was
I thought the general finish on the car was very poor and was better before
I took the car to Classic Car Services. I had the opportunity to let MG
Owners Club know of my feelings on an online questionnaire they ask members
to complete annually.
In January 2010 the car, which is garaged had a flurry of snow on the boot
lid for 2 days, when this melted it left the surface pock marked. I
contacted MGOC to ask for advice, they suggested I contact the garage. When
I contacted Classic Car Services in January they remembered me and asked me
to take the car to them for inspection which I did. I was told it was a
paint defect and they would respray the boot after sanding back in February
or March (Free of charge). By 22nd of March I had not heard from them so
gave them a call, they couldn't remember telling me they could repair the
paint in February / March but are in the middle of a job right now and
would repair the paint in April. By this time the paint had flattened but
still left imperfections on the boot lid which I told them about. It is now
June 2010 and I have heard nothing from Classic Car Services so decided to
replace parts on my car which were given to me as Christmas presents. I am
still finding things wrong with my MGB which were not there before using
this MG Owners Club recommended dealer.
