CMGC Project Car Tech Days - 2006
Work location: Homewood, IL
May 21 to Nov 18, 2006 (and continuing in spring of 2007).
The 1977 MGB was donated by Jim Evans. There was some rust in the lower fenders and outer sills. Inner sills and floor pans are generally solid. The engine is complete with all original emissions control parts, although the engine and gearbox were out of the car at time of delivery. The suspension needs new rubber or poly bushes, and it needs new pads and rotors to make sure the brakes are absolutely up to snuff. There's a little work to be done on most aspects of the car so there's something for most folks to learn about from working on this car. We will start by tackling the bodywork. Time to remove seats and carpeting to see how much work it needs in the sills. Watch for news updates in the monthly newsletters.
