Not sure weather it's worth it but, I have my old mgtf here, it's been sat in the same space for longer than I care to remember.

It needs new brakes, more than likely a bunch of bushes, also needs some engine work.
The engine will start and run now but the engines management light will come on which I traced to the alternator, I have a replacement here.

The engine is also very tappy and just doesn't seem right. Maybe needs inlet gasket and exhaust gasket replacing. I know it's missing a couple of bolts in the inlet manifold which I need to replace, it's just little things really but things I'm having trouble getting around to.

Also needs the interior stripping out of it.

Thought maybe a mini meet may spur me onto get it done!

Sh1t lol! Basically my drive. Hence why I say I don't know if its worth it. Would only be able to fit a few people in here. If the car was roadworthy it would be easier.
It will be going for a full respray sometime this year however I want to get these jobs out of the way first before it does.
