Fellow MG'rs    
Once again I find myself needing assistance. How is the front plate
attached to a 77B? Mine has two long bolts/screws attached through the
center of the front mount. I fear that inside the bumper there are two
captive nuts? My bolts are stripped, or so it seems, but they do loosen
a significant amount- enough to move around (within the hole sideways,
up and down). Perhaps these are wing nuts?
If the nut falls into the bumper interior then I shall be cursed
eternally as a DPO, because, I can't see how they would come out or go
back in.
I only wish to remove the plate for cleaning of the bumper which is in
pretty good shape anyway. It is not a necessity but am I missing
something here? In Nfld. we don't require a F/P anymore and it would be
nice to see how she looks without it. I would put black plugs in the
holes but would like to be able to replace the plate if I wish.
Did you remove yours Preston? or do you have one?

Best Wishes & Safety Fast
