Paul Brown may be able to help, although it may mean you sending bits of the car through the post to him in Brighton. Very very trusted person in MGR circles, and what he doesn't know about electronics in these cars ain't worth knowing - send him a message, he's really helpful

^^ I think that's going to be the ultimate challenge for 2019 - being the first to kollekshun without involving some or all of Auto Aid, five shiters who live on different landmasses, a tame CERN physicist, the ghost of Claire Rayner, and/or the Coldstream Guards marching band...

 

Great result for all involved, though!

Do not call a Pilot the "aeroplane driver". They don't like it. Found this out the hard way once... it was even someone I knew and they knew I was joking.

Awkwards.

It's definitely a lot more characterful* than an MX5!

The 'lastic band that attaches itself to the two cross struts is an easy way to make topless motoring an actual thing.

 

Unzip the rear screen fully first and make sure it's folded a bit, then lob the roof back. The placky screens can crack in cold weather.

 

Lobbing the roof back and forwards is a one handed affair. Really easy when you get the knack.
