OK now I got it, I now have storage i cut the door trim and now can keep my junk somewhere I replaced the old intake and carborater with a new Holly 2bbl. with a progressave mechanical secondary type the manifold is from a 1.6 L. larger than the 1.4 a little more power . painted the spokes gloss black and added s/s trim rings i used stainless steel i think it has more of an older look.THANKS for the help with the pics.

Dan, I am working on trying to fit some MGB wire wheels to my MG. Trying to figure out whether to adapt the adapter to 130mm (VW chassis) or redrill the brake drums to fit the adapter. But, after I solve that problem, I still have another: The wheels are chromed and are pitting and flaking and rusting. Painted wires are ok with me but how to prep the chrome so that the paint will “stick” is still something that I am wondering about. Any advice would be most welcome.
Roy all i can say is get some emery cloth sanding each spoke one at a time a long WINTER job but that is the only way .or if you know and can get time on a sand blaster. that would faster .. I did it one spoke at a time on those cold Tennessee winter evenings. Dan
Ray,, the manifold and carb. came from Quebec the claim is that they are more open with longer runners for better torque. the carb. is a n.o.s. 1972 before GM had to lean them out to meet US emissions,,they are still available on line, as off road . the later carbs. had vacuum secondary throttle plates. I also changed over to hand choke .
