  1. I'd consider Lithium Iron (LiFe) batteries, they seem pretty generally available, are far cheaper than Lithium Ion but still offer s weight saving over lead acid.
  2. Fantastic. Would love to hear the plans for it.
  3. Don't know about mapping them but yes 1.4 HDis are £30 a year tax. My one was £450 and does 65mpg without me trying. It will need rear axle bearings come MOT time though. It is slow, especially starting and up hills. Other than that it isn't too bad.
  4. Just had a drive in the MGF. Nowhere to be, no reason, just a bit of fun with the roof down. Really must do that more often, country lanes. No traffic, sun coming through the clouds, wind though what if left of my hair and the Pet Shop Boys on the CD. Good times.
  5. Just seen this on Facebook, might be of interest to Rover and MG botherers.
  6. It only freaking passed!!! £154 insurance from Lancaster, just need to tax it. Grinning from ear to ear.
  7. I took the rubber seal off and painted under there too. The paint seems to chip quite easily however. It's all back together now, the MoT tomorrow lunchtime. If it doesn't fall to badly I'll need to fix the rear screen. Still think it is a bit of a looker though.
  8. Too wet to be needing about on the ground today so I decided to tart up the engine cover before refitting it.
  9. The K-series Metros still look sharp to me.
  10. Couple of coats of chassis paint. Front of the car is now up in the air for that to be done as well.
  11. Never had the pleasure of an MX-5 but the MGF does have a large my arse shaped dent in the rear arch from when I tried to lift it a little to get a jack under. Have to agree the underseal if pretty good, from the exposed fittings and swirl pot cover it looks like the car spend some time near the sea, or possibly in it, but the underseal has kept the actual bodyshell protected. But it reaching the age where it is drying out and cracking on the edges. Post not it will need a bit of TLC.
  12. Two coats of Vatcan and then Zinc 182. Having to hide under the car as the hale started half way through. Sorry Isopon, this isn't professional use Hope to get another coat on tonight and then some black chassis paint tomorrow. MoT booked for Tuesday at 12.45.
  13. Multipla had been shunted into the garage to work on the MGF. No use for it at present, until lockdown ends and there are some long trips to do the 206 is perfect. MGF will hopefully be in for an MOT next week, seems to run well but I need to give the rest subframe and various other bits a clean up and rust protect. Started with the angle grinder and flap wheel, Vactan put on. Zinc primer and black chassis paint to follow.
