• Hi there Guest - Welcome to the New BCF!! This has been a long process and I'm sure there will be some kinks to work out, but as of today, Feb 22nd, the British Car Forum has been migrated to this new forum platform! There is much that is similar to the old BCF but also much that is different. Please give it a chance as with all things new and shiny it will take a little getting used to. However, I'm coinfident that, once you get used to it, you will find it a much more user friendly platform than the previous, outdated software.

Glad to find a forum that appears to be "active" because I need plenty of advice. I'd post a photo of the mgb but I am not sure how.

This car is in pretty good shape. Only one small dent behind the right rear wheelwell and the bonnet has a slight indention. I want to begin stripping it down so I can start with the minor bodywork and remove all paint. (Previous owner had it painted but it wasn't done right and has cracks all over it.)

I can see how to remove most everything except the windshield. I've read the haynes book but it doesn't really help much. What is the procedure for this? Any helpful tips/advice?

On the list to do:

Replace carpeting, some gauges if I can find, paint, convert the front factory shocks to new system, upgrade the tires, and complete the interior in leather. Hmmmm, I better go water the money tree.
