Drive-It Day

25 Apr 2021

I drove to Hastings today with my local MG car club. This was to support Drive-It day in aid of Childline. We took the scenic route along A & B roads, no motorway. In total, over 4 hours of driving and 150+ miles. It was an immense amount of fun.

Easter Sunday Outing

I decided to go for a drive today considering it was bright and sunny. I stopped off at a local riverside park for a quick photo op. The car continues to perform flawlessly.

Exhaust Sound

I’ve spent some time today experimenting with microphones, a USB microphone amplifier, and an Android mobile phone to taken an in-car video that actually sounded realistic. I think I’ve got there but now I just need to record a video worth watching :)

By modern standards, the MGB is a small car. I felt that I needed to improve my safety and visibility in traffic by installing a high level third brake light. I found that a unit from a VW Passat B6 was ideal for the job! Read more here

Boot Trim

14 Mar 2021

This weekends job was to tidy up the trim in the boot area so it doesn’t look quite so bad and to improve noise insulation. It was made from some 5mm hardboard and some aluminium angled strips that I had laying around the workshop. I covered it in the same carpet that I’ve used for the rest of the car. It’s had a noticable positive effect on noise which can only get better once I add some more noise insulation to the underside.
