Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Yes but if we keep him up late like last time, he'll just sleep all day.

Just a quicky note to say a big Thanks to Dave (Dattrike?) yesterday for swapping over my Manifold / EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve) and fitting the Inline Thermostat that he had all prepared for a Swap. Very, very much appreciated I had packed everyhting and managed to leave my Tool box at home, so Dave was very nice and did the Job using his Tools

It was a pleasure to meet a few new faces yesterday and as always great to see the few people I had met last time, Dave / Takestock, Steve / Arctic, Lyndon and Woolleysox and Duncan (Who was the first Member I met personally from the site when I joined back in 2006 and hadn't seen again till yesterday!!)

Some beautiful Cars there as well, made me very jealous Although, I am slowly catching up now with making a beauty Machine

I may be up later this morning (and what a Beautiful Morning it is too) but I may pop up in the MGf, for a bit of topless fun

Well it was another great meet :) gutted I didn't camp over now or at least book a hotel earlier enough!

It was great seeing everyone again and special thanks to Duncan and Alan for finishing off my green interior at last! and for Bernard and Ben for my powerfolds! and Stu for getting that rear bench seat bit back in! annoying thing would only allow one side at a time! do one and other would pop out lol.

Hoping to make the next full weekend one! might even camp as it's July...

I didn;t see a double air bed but there was a boot carpet that someone collected... possibly Ben?

Well what another great meet, and apart from a sleepless night in the tent all went well.
A big thanks to all those who travelled any distance to get there and Jürgen must have come the furthest from Germany !
A special thanks to those members who continue to offer their time help and advice to others which makes these meets so good, you know who you are !
It was also nice to see some of 260s members there and some of the the MGR owners club members attended for the first time.
My pictures below which have for some reason loaded in reverse order so start on Sunday afternoon and finish up on Friday afternoon !
So Sunday:
Mike packing his tent away !
Image
Fog mounts for the Premium bumper fabricated out of body filler to solve the hard to get OEM mount issue
Image
Image
Image
Image
Bernards lovely V8
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Wide Load’s ( Mick ) MGF
Image
Image
DRLs fitted on Devilish’s ( Steve ) tourer
Image
Image
Mick listening for the engine !
Image
I haven’t got a clue what is going on here unless Wolleysox has lost his trousers and his modesty is being protected !
Image
This was how the Premium fog mounts were fabricated and the materials used - total cost less than £10
Image
Image
Make sure fog light is aligned at the front
Image
Clean the area ready for the adhesive
Image
Mix the adhesive with the hardener
Image
Image
Apply to the bumper
Image
Image
Place the fog light with bolts in place and sink the bolts into the body filler making sure you spread the filler fully across the bolt end, we put a washer on the bottom of the bolt secured by a second bolt to splay it out a bit and give it a better hold in the filler
Image
Secure with a tie grip to hold in place while filler sets ( about 10-15 minutes )
Image
This is the result
Image
Image
Image
And fog lights can easily be removed
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image




















Stocktake ( Dave ) and Arctic ( Steve)change Marks fan in 50 minutes !
Image
Mark had put some scratches on his bonnet with clay and found them hard to remove
Image
Image
Image
Image
And after polishing with a DA using 3m polishes
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Wooleysox’s (Rob ) new premium bumper next to mine
Image
Image
This was the scene at 5.20am on Sunday morning after a good night
Image
Image
Image
Image











And the Saturday nights festivities after the pub meal and a few jars
Image
Image
Image

Image
Image

Image
Image
Image












Now Saturday during the day:
Mikes unusual tent !
Image
Mark testing his new fan works off the car
Image
And now my favourite job of the weekend fitting a premium bumper to Robs Black V8 tourer, which involved fitting the fogs, headlight washer jets , and of course the MG7 chrome grille before offering up to the car
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Cutting the infill to fit the premium bumper just to allow clearance past the fog mounts
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image





When securing the chrome grille with cotterpins you can carefully drill through the black grille to make life a bit easier if you wish
Image

Image
Image
Image
Image
Ready to fit
Image
And fitting

Just arrived home after being held up on the M6 due to a lorry overturning on a bridge at one of the junctios. Its load of scrap metal had fallen partly on to the motorway but on the northbound side. Rubber necking brought our carriageway to a slow start stop condition. Very annoying that motorists don't just keep going when the incident should clearly not affect them.

Great weekend and many thanks to Lyndon who was able (in his own words) to put into practice the skills he had learned growing up in Wolverhampton by getting into my locked car. It had accidentally got locked with the engine running when Stu from the 260s got out of the driver's seat. Big panic time as my spare key was at home and not in the wife's handbag where it usually is.
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.
