My MG ZS repair diary....Repaired.

http://www.themgzs.co.uk/vb/showthread.php?t=15276

Following on from this thread I had the car delivered on Friday, looks as good as the pics really.
Started 1st time...sweet, clutch feels good too.

Mk1 straights,
Full stainless steel exhaust,
Unknown cone filter,
Aftermarket short red aerial,
Kenwood Disc changer with disc holder missing.
Dog hairs on all the seats.

This is how it looked before I stripped the front end.


After




This pic is the alternator belt cover so you get an idea of how fare the front panel went back.


Time to break out my 3 part jigging tool.
1 R400D,
1 tow rope,
1 wife to drive the R400D.....sorry no pics of the wife.




The front bumper will be repaired as the main curvature is still intact.
Things I need,
Bonnet,
O/S headlight,
front bumper bar,
Radiator with AC and twin fans,
OEM rear lights or swap for the Lexus style ones.

I used a very similar tool to "Jig" a Rover 25... although it was a Yellow rope, an MG ZS180 and a friend driving

Think if my wife was the jig, I'd end up with a foot longer ZS and no rear on the R400D.

Hope it all comes out OK, have a great car when its finished.
