Saw un built kit car advertized as fiber fab MG TD on e bay a short time ago. I won bid for less than the price of a cheap grill shell. Drive to southern Ca was done on a Saturday 12 hours for trip.Seller had bought 4 kit cars from an estate sale he bought 2 completed kit cars which he planed to sell and did. owner said 2 other cars had to go with the sale one was the un built kit which I bought and one was a partly completed front drive MG TD kit car minus the running gear.kit I bought was taken out of crate before I got there. Parts were in orgin ial packaging around fenders. Glass and other parts. loaded truck and headed home. paperwork with sale had original invoice from Fiberfab Has to be from CMC as it has fenders bolting in front center. I bought kit for parts for my fiberfab MG TD. They won’t fit my car so now building a second one.The Kit is minus a few items. build manual,wiring harness,bolt kit and a few small hinges.No kit is not for sale. Yes god things happen sometimes.George FisherMay 1, 2012 at 10:09 pm #250344edward ericsonParticipant
Way to go, George. Hoping this kit will go together a little easy–since you already put one together.May 1, 2012 at 10:42 pm #250345newkitmanParticipant
George,I too purchased an unbuilt kit that was minus the wiring harness and a few small items. In case you didn’t know, the assembly manual for your CMC/Fiberfab can be downloaded using the “Download Manuals” tab on the left. Scroll to near the bottom and you’ll see the manual you need. Comes in two pdf files.Good building and if you have any questions or need to run something by the group don’t hesitate to ask.

George, Congrats and welcome to the forum. It’ll be nice to have something to think about other than this wire wheels on a VW fiasco that I talked myself into. (Actually maybe Ed talked me into it.)May 2, 2012 at 9:25 am #250347Paul MossbergKeymaster

Missing the fasteners is not that big a deal – when I rebuilt mine I replaced all the badly rusted bolts etc. ( came in the kit ) w/ stainless steel and nylon lock nuts – you will be glad you did. almost 5 years later and everything looks like new.
Check you phone book or internet for local fastener places for bulk prices on SS stuff. Costs more but worth it.

Having seen his car up close, I will second Dale’s suggestion.
