Agreed! So puzzling that there are far more MGs and Rovers in dull as ditchwater colours like XPGrey.

I suspect dealership stock ordering colour preference blindness.

MG and Rover had some really special colours in their range. Not just the sooper-dooper variable colour change ones but the ordinary solid and metallic vibrant ones.

I've seen Rover 25s and 45s locally in that superb blue and they really look special to my old minces...

Apparently ... in a parallel universe MGJohn drives .........A.......

B>>M>>W ....

Arrrrrggghhhhh......... ......

Thanks!

It's a Celestial Blue, one of the Monograms. Not a "flippy" paint, but "supertallic", which is great, as the paint is not stupidly expensive.

I see you have a gas strut fitted there DFA - would you recommend it/them?

If so, which one did you buy and did you buy the mounting bracket also or make your own?

I've bought them from MGManialtd, bracket were included.
They are SS... and a bit of a mixed bag...

++ They are very robust and so much better than the stick. Touch the bonnet and it fly to heaven
- You need to hammer the bonnet to make it sit flat (I did a bit of messy job... and is not completely flat anyway)
- They are rusting :/

Finally got around to prepping up my nice red powder coated cam cover ready for fitting.
The mating edges all needed a proper scrape to get rid of excess paint, old gasket media and to generally square it all up again, its surprising just how uneven the face of the cover was, but a good hour with a machine bed scraper sorted it out.
Also while I was at it, decided to re-tap the threaded holes on the top where the coil packs bolt, and decided to helicoil them, as I have never liked steel pins in alloy threads anyway.
All ready to fit and hopefully will cure a very tiny oil seep between the cover and the head.
