I was really picky about mirrors as my 65 MGB was used as a daily commuter. I was happy with the 2 screw mount door mirror that Moss carries (223-310). It's a repro of the original Lucas mirror and

Time to do some quick checking. Look for wetness on the clutch pedal. If the pedal is completely dry, then the slave is leaking. The slave is the most likely problem, as the alloy body is prone to co

There are major differences in construction between the rubber and chrome bumper cars. The whole assembly process was changed and there may have been enough tolerance shifts to cause the problems yo

I think Norm just answered your question. The rear quarter window areas of the top will flex outward when the side brackets are tightened. This will lower the top and reduce the gap above the window

I installed arm rests from an Austin Marina in my 70 MGB years ago. They were much more comfortable than the 73+ design, but might be a bit tight if you are amply built. The arm rests in my TR8 look
