Hello guys just a little thread in regards to cleaning up my Mgtf. Got the car home eventually and started to give it a bit of a clean nothing like the depths of what can/has been achieved on here

So here is where the car had sat for 3yrs

It's a 1.6, started up pretty much straight away with some jump cables on it. Little bit of tappet noise but should settle once it gets a fluid change.

Just need to sort out some new brakes all around

Yeah I know. When I got my ZR I wanted x power grey and ended up with silver so glad to have at least one MG in the right colour lol

The badges are on the to do list. Just need to make sure the roof/seal/windows are all correctly adjusted first lol
