Paint preparation has begun! Finishing up the bonnet. Refinished the dash with walnut burl, it looks great. Body was separated from the frame and placed on the rotisserie. Floors, sills, fenders, A and B-posts are done. Frame/jig on the rotisserie worked out great, nothing moved or twisted. Cleaning up welds on the bottom side now. Frame has been treated with internal frame coat, Now painted with AG111 MasterSeries frame paint kit. O/D transmission rebuilt. Motor run and test of the overdrive transmission completed.
Lots of progress being made....

Left side rear brake almost ready to go back toget

I got a little time to work on the MGB today. I had soaked several rusty parts in Evaporust and it took care of most of it. The fuel filler neck was coated in rust in the inside and it came out pretty nice. The brake adjusters also came out good. I used a wire wheel in the left rear brake dust shield and wheel hub.

I tried vacuum bleeding and was still getting air from somewhere. Jeff Strong (local MGExp member) has been sandblasting my rims. He brought two more over, so I asked him to help me bleed the system.
