Sorry but I prefer the black roof. She is looking stunning. I can only imagine what she would look like if Flame Red or Trophy Yellow .............................. sorry sliver just does not do it for me.

The sun is out so hope you manage to get to POL ............................. me have some runnign around to do then it's back to fiddling with the 75th. Am routing the new S/S braided hoses and once I ge then right and secured out of harms way can then fit the new proper caliper bolts and the new front brakes will be complete. Whilst not original at least the AP's 2 pots are MG marked and a logical upgrade.

I'm fine with the grey roof. I have the 16 inch square spokes on my F and I think they are just the best. However, I also have the standard brake set-up (which has never caused my any concerns) so what spacer did you have to fit withe the APs?

I will sit on the fence with trophy yellow however the next mgf i bring back from the graveyard after the green one is going to be all being well a flame red mark 1.OE original refurb for the purist.

I was considering contacting sithmaul when that red one got broken it looked a good shell but i didnt have room at the time.
Changing the colour of the panther will take away the originality and history but agreed would look nice red.
POL was a cracking day the weather was fantastic thankyou.
Turns out that grey roof is a very rare spark edition i getting used to it but the black looked just as good.

I'd like to know what spacer you needed to get the 6 spoke rims over the 4 pot ap calipers and what did it do to the handling of the car. (I'd like to mount 2pots on abingdon wheels but i am reluctant to the size of spacers and the effect on the handling...)

I have two MGF's running with 5mm spacers on the front and LE Multispoke wheels over AP calipers. One set of 4 pots and one set of 2 pots. 5mm does not effect the handling at all as far as I can tell. Og also have another MGF running it's standard brakes and 15 6 spoke wheel for comparision.
