I have an MG TF160 (DeepBlue)
An LE500 (Ellie Sue)
A Nissan Leaf
A Land Rover Freelander
A Renault Kangoo van (MG support van )
And I found this little baby in the back of my garage when I was tidying last week.
First time it has seen daylight for a couple of years.
Yep - unfortunately both mirrors to the main loom and the switch connector - I am hoping its a single loom piece that joins somewhere - mine are connected to a live feed and powered by their own loom at the mo (that I made up) - but as I said I buggered it up!
Been busy swapping a lot of the parts of the SAIC MG UK 60 plate MGTF on to me red TF today and with the green mgf still to put back together when it comes back from bodyshopi will not be doing nothing to heavy on the panther until some other projects finished,
However i did take the panther for a little warm up run this morning but not without making some minor cosmetic adjustments.
The chrome air intakes was just to bling for me, replaced them with original MNX silver.
A hour spent removing the ridiculous triangle wing repeaters which had been glued on (heat gun followed by a bit of G3 Paste) replaced with some original OE indicators.
Finally got rid of that Motorsport badge off boot same again was glued on.
Tried to replace just the whip on the aerial,found the male thread had been glued in to the base,so replaced both with a OE whip.
Going to fit some new standard silver headlights next,the attempt at replicating the trophy that are in have got to go,i have some original trophy lights but i dont think they suit this car i also will replace the Rear TF Lights with some original Mgf and AP brakes if i can fit it in next saturday.
I wanted to debling it and let the kit be the main focus.

Will take a look tomorrow and let you know what I find. Do you need it for both sides?
The Alvis TF21. Just 106 TFs were built, but they come with a triple-carb 150bhp engine, improved gearbox and uprated suspension. Rover bought the car company, and planned to build a P6-based replacement, but it never saw the light of day - and from 1967 Alvis ended up concentrating on armoured vehicles.

Cool - I am not sure if the electric windows loom is a separate plug in bit - as I need it from the mirrors in the doors to wherever it goes for power. It's for the Red F as I need to MOT it and sell it before it's worth nothing! LOL
I managed to bugger up my loom I made up and the labels fell off the wires and now it blows a fuse when I plug it in how I think it should be! Sigh!
There you go few pictures I took during removal and fitting
Hi Adam, yes all the wiring is still in place.
I think if it was an engine mount it would knock on acceleration/deceleration.
Does it do it when you go over rough ground? I had the same and it was the rear compliance bushes. As I didn't have the time to fix them (and the MOT was fine with them as they are) I just made up some big spacers/washers from an old Ikea chopping board to go between the suspension arm and the bush - noise gone!
Hi Mate - Do you by any chance have the electric windows loom?
I tried splitting with a chisel even attacking it with a hammer I couldn't get anywhere I tried a screw driver prior to that to no avail , just assumed it had rusted that heavily it had fused the hole bolt to the flanges inside and out so just ran a very thin cutting blade through round the hole connection and bolts to get it all free.
Totally pissed me off when I could drift the remaining bits of bolt out the cat flange I killed around 10 drill bits getting them out!!
Needless to say it's now got stainless nuts and bolts and I used copper slip on everything to stop seizing as the down pipes will be next to be replaced.
Sub frames got a bit of surface rust aswell so that's on my todo list
