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....

I got quite a bit of time today to work on the MGB. I got the clutch hardline hooked up. I tried gravity bleeding the clutch and got nowhere. 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. We tried the two person pedal push bleeding, but were never able to develop pressure and it still seemed to have air in the lines. He has an EZBleeder...
