After sitting for over 17 years due to a crappy paint job, I am starting over. I have sanded off the two stage paint that peeled within one year. The body has been sanded and primed, next week it goes in for a new paint job. At the same time I received a new hip. The engine is at the machine shop getting a make over. I added the extra light housing for turn signals, I will drill out the upper units so the lights can be installed. The 1500 motor uses the same parts for the MGA engine.
