  • bryan young replied to the topic 'Vehicule enquiry: Is this MGF sold in France?' in the forum.

    the VIN is SARRDWBTCWD033971 AND WAS BORN ON 12TH FEBRUARY 1998, the Vin should be stamped into the top of the inner wing adjacent to the horns. There should also be a body number in the boot, painted plate, behind the carpet on the firewall, in front of the ECU. the car is listed as an Abingdon SE, which i could be because it is Green but the paint code is required from the Vin plate under the bonnet. No Vin stamped into wing and no approval number on Vin plate, it could be a ''Ringer''

    Can you post a photo of the Vin plate and see if there is a body number plate in the boot.

    The UK registered keeper (the person named on the V5) taking the car out of the country to sell should have filled out section 11 of the the V5 and sent it to the DVLA to inform them that the car was no longer in the country.

    The far more worrying thing is that you say the identification plate from the engine bay has been removed? Does the VIN number on the plate visible behind the windscreen match the VIN given on the V5?

    Vehicule enquiry: Is this MGF sold in France and registred as it???

    A young english chap maried to a french sold it to me in the end of 2010...
    Forgot to sign the seller's case of the V5...
    Tells he has warned DVLA!
    EXPORT MARKER shows NO
    while my TF 160 shows YES!

    It's a pain to get rid of it, since I recon the head (took months as newbie to VVC, like the worshop was)
    It apparead last year (after buying the expensive COC at MGR C&C Services,
    a required paper for the french MOT (contrĂ´le technique) that there was no VIN stamped on the front wing (that has been replaced vs some shock)

    The car was bought with 1 or 2 months UK MOT left, and surely wouldn't get a new one because of that.
    It was just brought to France for a quick sale.
    Much too quick, will I say

    Sithmaull,besides weather considerations you need to think about the people that have to go to work on the Monday.
    Therefore a Sat. meet would probably be better for them than a Sunday ;) Depends if they like a drink :P
    Personally. as I'm retired, Sunday would be favorite & better for you I would think.

    Tarted aux pommes?

    Not sure about the mix with Guinness mind, much as I like it. A nice drop of Cavados might be better.

  • Blow-in replied to the topic 'Front arch liner crap trap' in the forum.

    Did mine today. Had been meaning to get around to it but thanks to the naggers (and I mean that kindly) I got motivated this afternoon. Yes, I also found a pile of crap which was removed and after everything was properly dry, I applied a lot of black waxoyl (and I was born before 'young John lad') before replacing the lining. I have the MG mud flaps fitted and they don't make any difference to the accumulation of crap behind the liners but they do protect the externals cills - I don't have a problem with how they look.. But then again I like cloth seats.

  • Plezier replied to the topic 'Cybox stainless steel exhaust' in the forum.

    Although it won't be a S/S box ............................................. have this fun to look forwards to on "Blue 33" she is still on her original system after 17 years and the box had now got a rust hole in it. So the mild steel box that came off the VVC to have the hanger re-welded in place will be going onto "Blue 33 along with the front/down pipe. So I have to get the original CAT separated from them both a sit still works fine. have the gaskets on hand just need the weather and will to tackle it once she gets back from the body shop.

    Front Fogs are a God send out here. Being on the Fens fogs are a matter of course and there are no curbs and often dykes and drains to wander off into. So Fogs as I said are a God Send, Only he 97 MGF MPi does not have them the two Rover saloons have them as standard in their trim.

    Just wish I had the space and fund to gather more. The fixing up on the two MGF's that I do have is taking time as we can only do bits as finances permit. Sadly her bodywork was badly knocked about whist she lived on the Street in London:-

    N/S/R quarter .............................A local garage did this bodge up for the MOT:-

    P8300286_zps2d0b6f2c.jpg

    took the guy nearly three hours to do that dreadful mess. It's being cut out and repaired properly now along with dent and rust removal the both rear quarters being sprayed.. Then once funds have been saved up some more rectifications can be done. One day she will be presentable possibly even good. It's seeing MG's like yours that inspires me to keep at it for the long run.
