Midget Strip Down 1

The Midget has arrived, meets the minimum requirement for a donor as it has the items that aren't available either new or reconditioned from the normal Midget/MG suppliers plus it has a V5C.

The strip down has started, steering rack and mounts removed and refurbished with a re-grease and new bellow boots.  I have new ball joints but these need cutting down as does the steering rack.  These have now had the steel sections primed and will be painted matt black.

Next part is the hand brake lever, the chrome is very good, just needs a polish but the mounting bracket needs welding.  Lots of new parts have started to arrive, luckily Tricia wasn't here when today's batch were delivered.  So far I have boxes containing:

Front Bearings/seals
Rear Bearing/seals
Rear Brake overhaul & drums
Front Brake calliper & disc upgrade kit
Gauge refurbishment kit
