this is the turn signal relay ,this car has one rear light with the dual filament bulb,one filament for lights and one for brake/turn signal , this is the relay so the brake lights get interrupted when braking and using the turn signal. it also seperately uses the regular style cylindrical three prong flasher to make the turn signal flash

|Loose Ctrl||That's so cool.Is this the charging regulator rectifier relay,or power distribution relay?|

and done with the hard part now just to clean up the screw in connectors

good time to post some pictures on todays efforts while the epoxy is drying
cut and stripped to length with a black mark on end that's goes to the base
I cut mine more flush and closer to the plate then Barney did and he used a slot to solder the wire where I used the tab. ( why you ask because I skipped reading his first page, if I were to do it again I would do it his way it makes soldering easier) I did leave in place the bottom of the magnetic coils and just trimmed them, with the grinder
epoxyed in place
sand, prime and paint the top cover in a stainless steel paint
now back to finishing the project

when momma was out I slipped in a little work in, making an old relay into new style relay. I am following Barneys write up and I used a grinder with a thin cut off wheel.
and the final trial fit

I'm sure that brings a smile to your face.
Getting colour on panels is a sign you're close to the end.

the goal today was to paint the two rear fenders and doors, but after the first coat of paint one of the doors I stopped painting that one because I saw some dings, I am not looking for perfection but you cant ignore the big things.
an easy way to hold the filter
why did I think there would be no more welding? two pin holes
everything got primed with high build primer and then wet sanded with 400
three coats or base and three coats of gloss

thanks, my 1954 TF had the wood.....I know it well
rain rain rain.....a make shift canopy so the blowing rain wouldn't invade the garage and to give me some more work space
two tasks today.....make doors flat....and remove rear fenders
yes that's water
we are on track for some painting tomorrow....

Wonderful and Thanks
I have spent many hours following your journey.
I just wanted to say "thank you". First for saving the MGA and second for sharing your journey.
I have spent 45 years on my project, 1952 MG-TD, and have encountered some but not all of the hazards you have, and one you haven't. The TD has a wooden frame.
Good luck on the completion and I will be tuning in often.

Have you ever tried any Feather Fill primer ,,it is thick when sprayed on but sands good ,Fast Fill on imperfections and saves LOTS of sanding and extra work,,Just saying
Your work is looking good followed since beginning ,just don't comment often because I know you don't have time to answer all these post ,
