A Mostly British Obsession

Outside for the First Time

1967 MGB GT

I was able to get some clutch action today (I have a new slave cylinder set aside for the transmission swap) and, sitting on the floor to drive it out of the shop, saw the GT for the first time under natural light since it was painted. I think it looks pretty nice, though it needs to be buffed again and then polished. Please excuse the badly parked wipers with frankly awful wiper blade assemblies (being replaced)–and don’t examine any of the trim too closely!

The interior obviously needs a few things. And my fan switch dissolved shortly after refinishing the dash, so I have some touch-up there.

In any case, this car will be the very definition of “nice driver” but it’s definitely not a concours winner!

    Truly a handsome old gentleman. Still lively though and, now, with a suit to match! Your work is an inspiration!!!
