Its been a busy time here in the workshop at KGC Engineering, with lots of progress made on my own Morris Minor Traveller and the 1967 MGB-GT. Recently another MGB_GT has arrived for a complete rebuild, this one is a 1972 version, still a chrome bumper but with the later style Ro-Style wheels as opposed to the traditional wire ones.
1964 Morris Minor Traveller:
My much loved Morris Traveller which has been of the road for best part of 4 years now has finally come come round to having all the main structural welding repairs completed. this has involved new inner wings front and back, new rear floors, sills front and back both sides and one end of the centre x member replaced. the car is now ready to go for acid dipping. This process will remove all the old paint and any none metalic material, as such it will kill off any rust. once the car returns it will no doubt require some further welding repairs, but shouldnt be anything to major.
This MGB-GT has had some of the repairs completed to it after returning from being acid dipped, it still requires further welding work. However I have focused my attention of building up the two suspension sub frames, with the rear one now complete with work on the front one starting imminently, once these are built up work will restart on the welding repairs to the body shell, in preperation of it being painted.
New Arrival – 1972 MGB-GT
This MGB-GT has also come for a complete rebuild, currently the main focus is to get the car stripped down ready for it to be acid dipped, so that any welding repairs can be highlighted much easier.
That’s all for this month
Happy Classic Motoring
