DON'T DO IT !!!   Keep the origional as is.   It will be worth more (to you
and everybody else) as manufactured; parts are available; and the "problems"
from + earth are VERY  minor on an MGA.  Don't screw up a perfectly Bad
design.  It's the British Magic we all love.
You can get any Radio to play, but you will NEVER get rid of the AM static.
A previous post said isolate the - earth-radio AND the antenna.(I agree.)
Ortherwise, go with what you got!!

With an MG you have just got to learn to think BACKWORDS! 

My '58 '59 & '60 MGA's are all,(or will be) + earth.
