another 20 minutes and 4 miles, its tough breaking in a car when you live in an urban area.....so far 1 hour and 14 miles.
so we have the goldilocks seats......one just right for me
and then the one for Junior who is 5 10' to 5'11, the one from the bomber seat with half the padding removed
and then one for little Joe 6' 3"+, just 2" of foam between the rails
we are still not sure his feet can fit between the pedals...

some guys can see the web site some cant not sure why.
the speedometer cable is in and to get it to route the way I like it has some extra cable up by the brake master cylinder,
the parking light was as i expected, the brown base in side the light had to be coaxed out and rotated 180*...no biggie.
and i set the toe to 0 . and if your wondering in the fight of bumper extensions vs a forehead the bumper extensions win.....
and my son and i went for a ride

well todays the day!!!!!!
added gas, disconnect the battery and put a power supply on the terminals and tested the electrical and every thing works. the front left parking light has the terminal studs reversed so the parking light is bright. i think i just have to take the bulb out and spin the brown terminal base plate around. the wires are connected properly.
click on the picture for the video
drove around for 20 minutes. i dont have door latches so the doors are just bungie corded closed on the interior door pulls

lets wrap up the electric
fish wires through
there is grommet on the loom where it goes through the body
use a gasket punch to make the holes
use the power supply to make sure the wires are hooked up correctly

choke cabling, heater box cable installed....another two hours....why does everything take 2 hours??????
these are MGB aud 135 carbs
cut the cable sheathing
this is the long "tappet wrench" that is very thin to hold the inner nut on the cable clamp
you can see how thin these are.
does the heater flapper cable get held down any where?

moving forward install heater box fresh air hoses, paint inside of rear bumpers, and use vinegar and a wire brush of gas tank filler spout
gas filler spout
back of bump[ers
painted with self etching primer
with wheel silver paint
fresh air hose

WoW! The project is wrapping up quickly.The details seem to be coming together pretty good.
A local scrap yard has a complete convertible MGB Midget,around a 77 model.I've thought about trying to pick it up, and store it, until time allows for me to do some work on it.It seems like a fairly solid car,all tho,I haven't been able to look inside of it.If I needed an engine for it,I have a '92 Honda Accord with an F22A engine that I maybe able to mate up to the MGB trans and motor mounts.Sure would be easier to find cheap parts for the Honda engine.
