    Mystery MGA chassis part

    Body-off rotisserie restoration, and ready to rejoin body and chassis. But I can't recall where these two mirror-image parts go. Road grime tells me they are from underneath, and I assume there's one on each side, either front or rear. Feel free to poke fun, I've already made all the senility jokes! TIA.

    I can't tell the size of the part from the photo, but check out #11 in this suspension diagram:

    The size is similar, and I had looked at the spring shackles, but the bolt-hole orientation is different. The curved cutout would seem to go around a chassis tube or steering rack.
