I have put some of the wire in for the radio

I think I will have to make a small cover to fit over the radio to cover up the hole for the old clock I don't know how this will look :?:

The radio is in and work's I have cut the hole bigger but as I thought I will have to cut into where the clock was
so now there is a big hole at the top of the radio, for now, I will make a cover and see how this looks if it looks rubbish I will change it

Image

I have made a small cover for the hole a bit of black paint and I think it will look ok

Image

i think this will work

Image

I have a much bigger picture now when I put the car in reverse (it's my garage door )

It is isn't it, I wish now I'd kept the dash out of the MGF I stripped last year, having problems catching the dash with my knee on the Metro one fitted

Mine just has fibreglass panels, do you have the measurements for the roll bar, possibly more images of where you picked the fixing points up from?

Strange what has happened to that vinyl cloth. I guess it is not UV stable and the sun has damaged it but surprising it would happen so quickly as wasn't that a fairly recent re-trim? The vinyl on my Spyder door cards and dash is still fine after 16 years but the car has always been garaged so only sees the sun when it comes out to play so maybe that is a factor.

Hi i don't have any sizes for the roll bar what did was to make a paton from some 15mm copper pipe to make sure that it would fit with the hard top and soft top on

Image

I made a goal post shaped roll bar i then welded some square feet to the bottom.
the car had a roll bar at some point in the past Some one had cut holes
In the frount of big square box on the tub so i could just get a bolt in to fi fix the feet to tub

Image

The bars that run to the back pick up the torque tub bolts from the engine bay
They were made with the main bar was in place as the tub was different
On each side

Image

Made to fit my car

My car is also in a garage and only comes out in the sun I think I will see if i can get the company that did the job to have a look and see what they say
