RHD Project for auction, 1st Sept 2018
   

Not strictly the place to post this...but it is related. 

As MGJ is nearly finished, I have decided to sell her sister car, AXI 1698. She comes with 'Plug and Play' rear lights of your choice.

For those of you who like the headlight trims fitted to the AXI cars, I see D go now have them in stock

I like these trims, 

 Matt Clarke first reproduced these.....as you know they were only fitted by the factory on two cars....AXI 1697 and AXI 1699. ...and now AXI 1698!    But I suspect they would have been an option later on.

Regards to fixing them, I would go with the screwed one...that how they were done at the factory.  But as you won't have a very thick piece of plastic bumper to screw into, I'd use a weak double sided tape as well.

 Remember you will probably have to grind off bits of the back, to make them fit properly...before fitting permanently.
 
Yes you would have to remove them again, if you need to remove the headlight...but how many times do you need to do that?

From what I've seen on FB, James Russell-Grant is remaking the headlight trims and then DGo are selling them on.

Sad to see Delores up for sale again ChrisP, she's always been such a special car to you.

Quite correct Claire.

 Matt is so busy with his day job they agreed James RG should make them.

 The patterns were taken off Nigel's, AXI 1697 ..shortly after we met up at Bletchley Park.

Yes Claire, but I think 20 years ownership is probably enough for AXI 1698.

 And I want to put some  miles on MGJ next year.....and get a few more holidays in as well!

It'll be 17yrs tomorrow that 'Flopsy' has been in my physical ownership, hopefully next year we can make a start on the rebuild.......
