Last week the engine bay of our MG TF restoration project was completely finished. Included are the original Vokes air filters and a cool finish on some of the carburettor hardware: black oxide.

Last Friday one of our best customers, Jennifer Orum was featured in the driving section of the Vancouver Sun along with her 1970 MGB.
Journalist Alyn Edwards tells the story of her remarkable travels and reliability over 115,000 km.
She always credits having a good mechanic, which is paramount, but this feat also speaks volumes for the MGB as a usable car; far more usable than most of the expen$$$ive stuff that rolls in the shop.
Have a look here:
It’s full steam ahead on the MG TF Build.
Fitted are the engine, brake hydraulics, fuel line and some of the impressive wiring loom from Autosparks in Britain.
A little over two weeks into our E-Type reconstruction has yeilded some quick results.
Fitted is the complete exhaust and intake systems including the Porcelain-coated manifolds that distinguish this build from most.
Not pictured is the fabled reaction plate install which was accelerated by releasing all the tension on the arms and wiggling the four bolts through by hand.
What else can I say. Oh yea the complete rebuild of the hydraulic brake system took a little time too.
Italian Job is back in the shop!
Here is 1 week’s progress. The 4.2 lump is back in and the accessories can now get piled on.
In many ways the E-Type engine bay was designed to look as good as it ran.
With the engine in we could route the electric wires on the subframe then start on the firewall bits.
