Post Re: My K3 otherwise known as the Purple Peril.
Ok the, I’ll try and post a few pics. I have one of the back brakes all done but waiting for new hoses. I’m replacing all four as the ends are corroded. Also some pics of the MGF wheels I picked up on Saturday. I’ll need these for the bigger front brakes I intend to fit.

Right tried something I merged your two topics together.

Lets see how this goes. All the pics and info are now together making it easier to follow.

I’ll update this thread with a couple of pics now it’s back up and running.

First is a pic of the back brakes all built up and just waiting for new flexi hoses. The next is a pic of the new wheels I picked up last Saturday and will allow me to fit bigger brakes at the front in the near future. The idea atm is to just do enough to get the car mot’d. Once that is done then the car will be painted. G4 orange looks favorite right now. Then as and when I feel up to it refurbished subframes will be fitted at either end. There’s a lot of work to do in the meantime and I’m just not up to full restorations any more.

Hi Simon,
That used to be mine! I bought it from the original builder (from Worksop) via the factory in 1998 and sold it in 2016. The colour (let's call it 'magenta') reminded the builder of his favourite flower! :roll: I chose to keep the respray it could have done with in the bank so to speak. The MGF gear shift and Northlight s/s exhaust were both good upgrades. To get the ride height correct front to back at the correct pressure we had to put a spacer in the front trumpets, and then the interlinked suspension worked well. With the hardtop off there is a bit of scuttle shake so I preferred it with the hardtop on. It went well with the 1.6 MPI engine (the ECU is a 1.4 MPI that's been re-programmed) and the exhaust note was lovely when pushing on.
In having a tidy up last week I found the proper pull down clips I bought to secure the hardtop and they're yours if you want them. Any questions about the car feel free to ask.

Steve, I owe you an apology. I should have replied to you but I had to take some time off work and get away and what with one thing and another I completely forgot. I don’t know whereabouts you are but when I’ve finished the car would you like to see her again?
