Luckily the wheels had already fallen off !
|Dave Godwin's lovely racing MGA that is off to the UK|
|No panels left on the car !|
Additionally, we are taking the radiator, engine, and gearbox out

Still at the back of the car, the full size wheel with P2P off road

I then measured up the hole in the boot floor which is where the lowest part of the fuel tank fits, and which needs to be cushioned with rubber sheeting which will be glued in place both to the boot floor and to the fuel tank. I already have the foam, so this is all under control.

I then picked up the gearbox from CCC and delivered it to Alistair Stevenson at Nerang Differential Services. They are going to go right through it, and hopefully not only make sure all the internals are good, but also find out why we were unable to get into 5th gear. These W50 Toyota gearboxes are apparently very robust, so we are hoping nothing untoward is found.
|Greasy mess in the steering box|
Things are moving very fast at the moment !!
