    Really looking good Bill! Dale has talked me into driving my car to Carlisle. So my winter project was a new set of tires. We are really looking forward to the trip, and hoping for dry weather.

    Ok folks, I am rolling right along. Made my reservations, got signed up for show field parking with the cool guys, and new tires ordered. Hope to see many more TDrs.

    I use a cover from Moss Motors for an original TD, seems to work fine. Mine is a Fiber Fab TD with a VW chassis.

  • 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?

  • rickputnam posted an update 1 year, 5 months ago

    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.

  • rickputnam posted an update 2 years, 1 month ago

    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.
