    I just find that I get a few wrinkles where the webbing moves independently from the roof material. Not a biggie, but the felt would probably stay smoother if it were under the webbing.:shrug:

    edit:- Just re-read what you actually asked. The material has to go over the bars of the frame, but can go over or under the webbing.
    Hope that makes sense.
    Could you not cut the material to go up to the bars and leave them uncovered? So it kind of tucks under the edge of the bars?

    As the seller wasn't in when I dumped the car back I was in a bit of a cleft stick.
    Leaving the car + docs, & key meant he had the cash + the car back :dry:
    Had no choice really as I had a 5 hour train journey back home but hoped he was an upfront guy & I would get a cheque for my lolly.
    Fat chance. Had a long ebay message basically telling me to p*ss off & I was the new owner & he was posting back the docs.& key. Basically said it was bought as seen on an auction site stating no returns.
    Although it did say on the item description that a mechanic had looked it over & said no problems, it is not worth the expense & hassle of going down the legal route.
    So I have 2 choices. Either get it repaired or scrap it.
    Waiting for a cost of replacing w/pump from MG Rover mechanics but I know it's a pig of a job.
    If I scrap it I will keep the the new wheels & tyres & sell them on.
    To be continued.

    Frustrating.

    Factor in a couple of hundred for a pump and new belts and it's still a decent cheap car.

    Fitted you are looking nearer to £500 fitted for a KV6.

    Car dealers simply spray them with matt black paint!

    I'm thinking I can only 'clean' or cover the inside of my red hood in case the colour leaks through to the outside?
    Spraying matt black paint should be OK but if you apply black renovo to the inside it WILL leach through and your hood WILL appear to have black stitching!

    Thanks for the link to Minerva David, just received the same material in grey to lighten up the interior.. :beer: one question :- you mentioned you would have fitted under frame cross bars...does fitting over bars give a problem or just decorative preference ?

    Have you got a full set of TF mud flaps you wont be needing? :vulture:

    Funny you should ask, Let me have a good look at them in the morning. They did have some :bang: British Racing Green overspray on them. If they clean up ok I'll give you a shout.

  • therealcarll replied to the topic 'New Member, zero wheels' in the forum.

    Hi Guys, thanks for the warm welcome.

    After my first two experiences viewing an MG TF from dealerships, as detailed in my first message, tomorrow i'm set to meet a private seller. 2002 MG TF 1.8 135 16v, Anthracite grey, 77k miles, lots of recent love/work (battery, cat, discs and pads, head gasket etc) and a genuine (sounding) seller. A few issues with ripped seat (common place) and broken clock (easy fix) but excited to see it.

    So, hopefully with my next message i'll be able to update you on my new car. Looking forward to getting to know more about the TF and The T Bar and if I dont get to beep and wave at you soon then hopefully chatting on the forum will suffice! :)

    It's not a totally useless gauge as it helps me to constrain my driving until it's started to move off the stops.

  • WeekendMonkey thanks user 'G0RSQ' in the forum message ' Decent 17 piece socket set at Screwfix'.
  • David Aiketgate replied to the topic 'Today's stupid question.' in the forum.

    No, don't worry.
    The oil temp gauge was fitted because it was fractionally cheaper than an oil pressure gauge. It 'indicates' rather than shows the temp. ie Not accurate.
    There was a run of cars where the oil temp seemed to read high and they found it was just the sensor being slightly more sensitive than previous versions. The fix was to put a resistor in the circuit to get a lower reading!

    Only worry if the gauge starts showing abnormal readings ie not whatever is 'normal' for your car.
