Tommy is now away sailing the Suffolk coast for a couple of days but before he left our workshops yesterday he managed to complete the installation of the new brake pipes. As you can see, the pipes are not yet secured but are in the positions that they need to be.
We have also fabricated the brand new over-flow pipe to the sump. This needed to be made up as it is no longer available in the shape we require.
We have now successfully removed the majority of the affected area of our 1947 MGTC with just the A and B posts remain.
It’s a surprisingly big task to take on but we are lucky to have caught it now as leaving these issues will only make the situation worse.
Once the A and B post are removed we’ll start to build in the new ash posts before re-modelling the exterior panels.
We have now uncovered the A and B posts of our 1947 MG TC to assess the extent of the rot and what coach work will need to be carried out to resolve the issues.
And as you can see from the B Post images, the rot has spread to 3 separate panels with the top panel, again being a panel that has had attention in the past. We’ll now start to get to work on correcting the issues and preventing the rot to spread any further.
THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE SEASON FOR FANS OF OLDTIMER
