T-Series Moss 5 Speed in MGTF Complete!!!

After about a month of work my wife and I have completed the Moss 5 Speed conversion and engine bay make over in our MGTF!!!

The kit was very easy but it did require a lot deeper break down of the car then I had originally thought. Once I got the interior and transmission out I decided to go ahead and pull the engine so that I could repaint the firewall, engine and chassis so a weekend project turned into a month long project.

Once you get the car apart there is always just one more thing to do that end up adding up to 30 more things :smile:

We drove the car for the 1st time yesterday and what a difference in drivability. The kit was not cheap but well worth it if you plan in driving the car much.

When installing the interior I decided to lay down a product called Second Skin (Dynomat like) and it seems to have reduced the interior heat quite a bit.

Here is a link to view the progress of the project to include the engine bay make over and the new carpet.

I took pictures of the build progress, they can be viewed at the link below.
