    Hey Dale, do you think Ed might have some pictures from the Air and Auto Classic 9. Maybe he could show on the web site?

  • Bill, the louvers are the perfect addition to your front engine car, good move.

  • The paint supplier in Stafford Va is Finish Master 540-6578901. I hope this helps, I am sure they will need a sample painted part.

  • Hey Copterpilot, There is a custom paint supply business here in Stafford just off Rt 1. Think they can help, sorry I can remember their name, try google. Dale maybe able to recall, and we would love to see your TDr.

  • Hey gregg, your TDr is really nice. We hope you can make it to Carlisle so we can take a closer look. May 17, and we ordered great weather!

    In response to ochwatt request trying to locate a good cover for his MP Lafer. I’m using a cover from Moss Motors, that was made for an original TD. It is a fine cover that fits great, and is on their web site. Worth trying.

    @edsnova , So just to confirm the Marriott in Shippensburg is the hotel of choice? Not the hotel in Mechanicsburg?

    I’m with you Bill, I managed to get a title in Virginia. With the VW chassis, it was easily registered as a 1967 Type 1. I would not give up either, push on.

    Heymoe, The most neglected circuit on a fiberglass bodied car, be it a vintage corvette or a VW powered kit car is the voltage regulator ground wire. I recommend a 10ga. black wire with eyelets, from the block to the voltage regulator mounting bolt. Start there, and clean all your charging circuit wire connections.

    I suggest a heat gun, on medium, with heat applied to the front of the windshield directly in front of the mirror tab. Be sure to keep the mirror mounted (need the weight). Hopefully the whole thing will fall off.

    Thanks to all the members and friends that stopped by building T to chat with me, and check out my MGTDr in Carlisle.

    Looking to have the MG TD Replica Club registered with Carlisle Events.

  • The last 8 sections of fiberglass are back from painting. I have received all the remaining lights and chrome from my suppliers. I plan to have the VW powered TDr ready for the daughters wedding soon. Wish me luck.

  • I really enjoy the web site, very informative. Can I be identified on the members map? Thanks for your assistance.

  • Dale, For 45 years I have enjoyed the sites of the Skyland Drive, and am very much looking forward to the Blue Ridge Parkway in my TDr. Hope you can join me.

    • Sounds like a plan Rick – let’s do it – get yours done this winter and Spring is right around the corner.

  • Want to thank Dale, Dean, Lee, and Gray for the afternoon visit this past weekend. A good day spent, and I learned a lot about MGTDr”s

  • The rear section is about finished. Trying to refit the front components before having them repainted. The fiber glass sections are in bad shape.

  • So with a new sealed fuel tank is the liner really required, just asking
