A decent body shop will be able to repair those dents and you could use a decent used bumper. Al...

Re: MGF OR TF

Personally I mostly prefer the mk1 F over the mk2 except the door cards, T bar and electrics and the steering rack of the TF.

Re: Where's Fiona Bruce when you need her?

The paint code is on the cars ID plate.

As long as it's no further east than Broadstairs it shouldn't be a problem.

Re: Where's Fiona Bruce when you need her?

What is the paint code?
HFF?

If yes I may be interested in some parts, the O/S wing to start with.
And maybe the doors.

Where are you in the south east?

Re: Where's Fiona Bruce when you need her?

When pricing up parts I tend to look at prices on eBay.
However having the KN splitter confuses things a bit but that on it's own is probably not far off.

Re: Shunt accident

Some would call that a car park ding.
A bit of filler and some paint should sort it.

Re: Changing the radiator

There will be a guide in the how to section on http://www.the-t-bar.com

Roose do a pair of silicon hoses to replace the rubber ones but as they are not in the engine bay they don't seem to age as they do on a front engine car.

I got a ali rad from ECP last year for under £60.

A 10mm ratchet spanner is useful for undoing the 3 bolts under the t bar.

Much the same as most find, defiantly worth doing for drivability.
