Hi everyone,
        In an attempt to ready the good ol' MGA for the Utica Autocross
on June 6th, I need to change the no longer existing steering rack boots
(both).  Just a few questions:
 Is this easy?
What tools do I need?
I have the MGA Factory Workshop Manual and another generic-type manual.
How many people are required?
Will I need to realign the front end afterwards?
Can I do this myself? 
Should I spend my time trying to get the <goshdarn> taillights and
headlights to work instead?

And in relation to the autocross:
I will be changing back to the original steel wheels (from something
that's too big from a Ford, says the DPO)
What kind of tires should I get?  
Is there anything else easy I should do to ready the car?

In relation to the semi-long trip to Utica, from LaGrange IL:
What kind of spare parts should I bring?
Everything seems to work fine now, should it stay that way or not, and if
not, which parts tend to break without due      cause?

I CAN'T BELIEVE MY CAR IS ALMOST DONE!!!  Well, not DONE, but drivable,
shall we say?

See you there, anyone who is going, and Thanks much for your help!!
