MGB GTV8

Post by basingman » Tue Feb 07, 2017 6:11 pm

As of this week I have my new project in the shape of a genuine MGBGT V8, a 1973 build model but registered in January 1975 (remember the fuel crisis and 3 day week, not a good time to sell V8s even if they are marginally more economical than a 1800). I expect the whole process to take at least a year and I will be looking to include some sensible upgrades to suspension, gearbox and some more power from the motor. There is going to be some bodywork to attend to (sills most likely as a starter for 10), a full respray and a new roof panel as I will be binning the existing Webasto sunroof (never a fan).

So, can any member recommend a specialist in our area for some panel replacement work? There is a local garage in Rotherwick (Moonface) who were recommended by the MGOC but that was a few years ago. The other is Rees Bros in Aldershot. Any comments etc gratefully received. :)
