Tell me it wasn't using any of those Alloy retainers.... if it was how hard
were the springs? I'm about to fit those retainers in MY motor!
As for paint, I am using a local blend for MGA/MGB and it's excellent. I'm
painting with a primer mixed with prepsol. Then at least 2 top coats to get
the depth. Takes at least 2 weeks to dry, 6 weeks and it is rock hard (I
have plenty of time!). Maybe the Moss enamel requires extended drying times
also - Kelvin? I just figured that was the nature of Enamel.
Also be aware that Hirsch did not even know that the MGA/MGB colour is
different to that of the T Types. I think the paint he sells is for the T
types, and even he couldn't tell me what it was for... So if it's concours
you want, be careful..
