MGB Roadster in the New Forest
An edited version of a short trip in the New Forest in my 1970 MGB Roadster (red, chrome bumpers, wire wheels, walnut dash and overdrive). Sister in car with me (aged 13, hence some odd utterances), and my phone was taking the video attached to the windscreen by a tacky, cheap, plasticky thing I bought off Amazon for all of £5.99, hence the rather shaky video.
A look at my '64 MGB.
Rust bubbles on the fenders started a repair project that became much more.
A year and a half later she has new Tartan Red two stage paint,Prestige leather seat covers with new pads and frame repairs,Moss carpet and panel kits,Robbins tan canvas top,a new wire harness and a Moss Supercharger with custom cold air induction. Air filter is K&N mounted forward of the radiator. The steel dash was refinished with wrinkle coat paint- that was fun.... There's a new gear reduction starter to replace a troublesome stock starter. An aluminum flywheel,roll bar,Mallory dual point distributor, spin on oil filter adapter and Ansa Exhaust with header were installed previously.
The P.O. cut holes forward of the rear wheel arches so I inserted some fine Alpine speakers to blast some vintage SRV or Little Feat.
Rust damage was minimal perhaps because this is a Southern California car. The floor panels were replaced (with localized rust damage under the dash) and the fenders had the usual corrosion near the bottom ends so they have repair panels welded in. The fender rust burned into the rocker panels(outer sills)so those areas were patched. No rust found inside the sills or chassis. The battery boxes were replaced because a previous owner modified them. The original steel hood was replaced with a used aluminum hood.
The factory hard top is being renovated with some fiberglass repairs to the inside and some hard to find pricey rubber seals from Canada.
The windscreen frame was disassembled and polished and the ventolator (wind wing) rubber was replaced.
And oh yes, the crack of doom was welded up but the Prince of Darkness still lurks among the electrons.
This car is a lot of fun with power to spare. She turns heads and begs to be driven.

"Memory lane up in the headlights
Its got me reminiscing on them good times
