a one-cheek car, but if you get a run at it - you should be okay.

when you are in it its ok......its great for guys with long legs and long arms.....i am more like a T-rex.

the challenge for me is bending to get your head in, i am not real flexible any more.....my varsity college soccer days and marine corps marathon days have long since faded into glory days, along with my 32" waist...... i think i found the sweet spot you sit on the rocker sill tuck your head in and then the butt and the legs can swing in one at a time... the seats are new foam and like the vette that takes away head room until they settle down some..of course my portliness isnt helping anything in getting in but should help compress the seat foam.

I sat in a TC with the top up a few months ago. I could hardly get in or out, it was so cramped I could hardly move and the footwell was so small and the pedals so close together I could not work one pedal at a time with my size 10 cowboy boots. I don't think I could have worked the pedals even barefoot. British people must be smaller than us beef & corn fed Americans.

oh yeah lots of leg room and the E brake handle on the pass side

moss part 457-240 retainer door sill for an MGB

this is combined effort of Mike Dianna and me to make some parts we are short, Mike has the original and he sent it to me

the new part is 3/4 shorter then the original



the profiles are close but not perfect







i plan to run it through the bead roller to get the nice curved radius and then the shrinker stretcher to get the slight upward bend

choke cabling, heater box cable installed....another two hours....why does everything take 2 hours??????

these are MGB aud 135 carbs

cut the cable sheathing




this is the long "tappet wrench" that is very thin to hold the inner nut on the cable clamp


you can see how thin these are.







does the heater flapper cable get held down any where?
