    The new rearend installed almost as a bolt-in.
    The only real modification was moving the trailing link attach points outboard 1.5 inches.

    The original attach points.

    Modifying

    The new points:-)

    The links fit into the TDr with no modification.

    The new rearend in it’s place.

    The gas tank back in…

    Now I wait for the new driveline.
    New wheels are in place.
    The five wheels I bought on EBay were Junk.
    Uh…Anyone want five 15X4.5 spoke wheels? I’ll make you a good deal.:D:D
    I made some adapters because I couldn’t buy what I needed. But now SPOKIES all around!!!Thumbs Up

    The Wires look great. Did you do what Roy did–re-drill your hubs for Triumph bolt-on adaptors? Or something fancier?

    I’m just trying to get the post picture system to work.

    This is a shot of the row of rivets I installed to hold my bonnet together.

    I’ve been using the Goose as my daily driver to work and found I need more cargo space for tools and gack. I had seen a photo of Moss Motor’s delivery rig and decided to emulate them…

    So I’m in the process of making an MG TD pickup.

     

     

    I got the bed from Speedway Motors, fiberglass. It’s almost a slide-in fit. The filler neck (also on line) makes an EZ fit-up.

     

    still missing the filler hose and paint…as soon as the rains let up…

    Whoa! Speedway had the bed with an MG logo? Way cool! That does look good.

    Always loved that old Moss TD’amino and thought it’d be great to replicate. Looks like a short T-bucket bed fits perfectly. Alas, not with a rear-engined kit, though.

    Wait…does that tub really have an MG logo molded in?

    OK, I’ve searched the Speedway site and could not find an MG truck box. ‘23 T bucket, yes, but those are plain back panels. Can you please supply more info. That box would be ideal to finish the back end when the race cage is installed.

    Okay Okay…

    The box did not come with the MG logo.

    I got the embossed MG license plate from Moss Motors cut the MG logo out of it and riveted it to the center of the box.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Ok. You have to look close but you can see the rivets if you look close. Very good.

    The bed is finished!!!!

    Nothing like rain and mud slides to get some chores done.

     

     

     

    MG branded pickup beds are quite common…NOT!!!

    But you can make your own.

     

     

    I still like the lines.

    Now I just have to chase down the oil leak and install new rear shocks and springs.

    Maybe it will keep raining.
