    My father and I have been restoring a 1962 MGA Mark II 1600 for the past several LONG years.... :p
    The car was completly stripped in every manner possible, sanded down to bare metal, new floor boards installed, trunk de rusted and fiberglassed, underside cleaned and painted then wax oiled for protection- The whole chassies was cleaned and painted-
    The engin only has 30k on it! But we rebuilt the tranny-
    A new interior was installed, a new convertable top was put in, new dash was made, new carpet, and finally the whole car was painted by my uncle, who is a pro hotrodder, best free paint jobs i can every ask for-

    Heres some pics-
    We are awaiting $2.2k of wire chrome knockoff wheels-

    The paint is soo waxed it is hard to take non bright pics of it due to the cameras flash!

    Nice! You guys did a good job in the restoration :thumb: do you have any pictures of the interior and the car before you started?

    Can't say I know much at all about old MGs, since most of the ones here seem to rust slowly into oblivion :(/

    I haven't seen an MGA 'in the wild' over here in Britain for absolutely ages, however theres lots of rusty MGB still around and an MGB V8 which sounds unbelievably nice.....

    :)

    It took about 10 years to get it to its current state, mind you we only had weekends to work on it-
    And sadly i did not have a digi cam until about 2 years ago, and it really hasent changed much in 2 years except for little things-
    I do have interior shots- hold on-
