    Re: 1964 MG MGB roadster

    WOW! What a beautiful save! The fact that it's still running is another amazement! I owned a 1978 Triumph TR8. Biggest POS I have ever owned! I noticed the tail lights were Lucas Tail lights!

    There was a saying about Lucas Electronics...The Prince of Darkness!

    Beautiful work as always! But I must say this is one of my favorites that you have done.

    KEEP ON ROCKING!

    Same question for the chrome bumpers.

    Thank you! I enjoyed working on this...and I enjoy SS paint as well.

    Those seats were so DRY. It was crazy, multiple applications of conditioner and they finally started to respond with getting a little darker...soaked it up!

    Top was cleaned gently with McKee's interior detailer and then used their interior surface protectant to give it some UV protection as well as 'enhance' it's looks some.

    Bumpers were waterless washed and then glazed to add some shine...that's it. They are original, had some rust, swirls and the like, and I just wanted to make them pop a little.

    Thanks again!

    So itís 3 rubdowns with #7 by hand?
    Then clay, then 105, followed by m205?

    Oh how long did it take? Looks like alot of work went into it?

    Yep. Soak it. Let it sit overnight. Rub it off. Soak again, let it sit overnight. Rub it off. Then one more soak for about 8-12 hours, then rub off.

    Clayed, then 105/205

    I had it for 4 days, worked on it solid for 2 of them I'd say...was def some work, a bit tedious at times due to the paint being thin/fragile in areas, as well as having to remove stuff-luggage rack, top/tonuea/etc.

    Next time you're on an airliner, remember that they make the ignitors for turbine engines...
