MG Saloon Day 2014

Hi all,

Long time no visit :)

Just wondering, does the OC have a place at the MGSD this year? Are any of you going?

Last time I went (2010) I think there was camping the previous night. Is anybody up for that? (Lindz, Dan, Vinny, Nige and Carl I'm looking at you!)

Be good to see you again!

Proof that you can polish a turd

Well, wax actually ;-) Gave the 420 a wash, clay and added a couple of coats of Collinite 476S to get it ready for the winter. I really rate this wax, easy to apply, looks fantastic and lasts well. http://sphotos-h.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/792363_10151606399616965_203828449_o.jpg http://sphotos-...

Random drive to Rivington

It's been a while since I've gone out for the sole purpose of taking pictures but I had a bit of time to kill earlier today. Did a bit of Googling for a suitable location and ended up having a drive over to Rivington. Despite having my camera for a couple of years, I've never really learnt to use it...

Re: Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone!

I'm in work from 8 until 11 today and then off until the 3rd. First time in 3 years that I'm off all over Christmas, going to be great!

Re: Giving my 420T a new lease of life...

http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u45/agw_01/420turbo2010/autumn2011/fueltankunderside.jpg With the fuel tank removed, I set about giving it a couple of coats of paint. I paid special attention to the seam of the tank, giving it a good thick coat to protect it from rusting. I removed the standard ...

Re: Giving my 420T a new lease of life...

You'd have thought I'd have got bored of Rovers by now... having owned and driven them for over 7 years. For some strange reason though, I find myself more attracted to them now than ever before. The red 420 is pretty standard and even at the 9psi boost she's running, never fails to bring a smile to...

Re: Giving my 420T a new lease of life...

Ended up having to ditch the factory crank sensor (the main reason for getting the Megasquirt trigger pattern instead of the standard Rover pattern on the new flywheel was so that I didn't have to use a separate trigger wheel and crank sensor for Megasquirt) and bodging together a mount for the Ford...

Re: Giving my 420T a new lease of life...

Ok, so waking up today with a bit of a hangover following a mate's 25th birthday last night I got a bit of a late start. Still, I made good progress and was working away until about 7:30 tonight without even realising it. Finally settled on a route for the Pirtek power steering pipe mentioned earlie...

Re: Giving my 420T a new lease of life...

I've got to say, I set myself seriously unrealistic targets... initially I wanted the car ready for the Nurburgring last year, then I extended the completion date to the end of July and the last target I set was to have it running by Pride of Longbridge earlier this month. I haven't hit ANY of them ...

Re: Giving my 420T a new lease of life...

So, it's been a while. The car didn't make it to Germany like I'd have hoped... in fact, even 5 months later, it's still in no fit state to be driven. But, progress is being made and there's some light at the end of the tunnel. Dropped the engine back in yesterday, 8 months after it was taken out. A...
