  13. They rust as fast as a bay, actually faster German engineering vs BL. That's all I know. Does it help?

  14. Maybe ;)
    I've found an MGB which has been dry stored under cover since 2006. It's had a new sill before its last MOT and had a respray ten years ago. It's been stood in situ and all tyres are flat but bodywork looks mint, looking underneath it looks good, exhaust which was new six years ago still looks new aswell.
    I've been given a price which is too good to turn down and am currently attempting what appears to be an impossible task... finding someone with a bloomin trailer!!
    Anyway, just wondered apart from sills where I should be checking over to make sure it looks ok before I buy an absolute money pit?!
    Oh yeah had a new sunroof canvas fitted before storing it and that looks bloomin new still too!!
    It's the big rubber bumper model, think if all ends being good I may shell out for the chrome bumper mod : )

  18. John and Mark know everything there is to know about them and are great with advice. May be worth a call on what to look out for.
