but I've made many mechanical and cosmetic improvements (completed in September 2008.)
These include: removing the engine/transmission and replacing a stripped ring gear.
Replacing the starter. Painting the exterior. Rewiring the car. Completely re-doing
the interior carpets and upholstery. Installing new gauges. Replacing the hood
and latches. (It previously had an MGC-replica hood with a forward-facing hood
scoop.) Replacing the grille and badges. Installing a new radio and speakers.
Chrome plating the roll hoop. Installing chrome covers over the mufflers. Etc.
