I once had 6 folks in mine on the way to the movies.
I think that's a Ford Tempo at the bottom (and maybe an Escort on the right) making this the 80's.
Me, too. Parade style!
Looks like a spitfire to me
I agree. Looks like a Triumph Spit.
Looks like a mk3 spitfire and what is with the 80's escort?

I need to do the same on my 73 but have not been home long enough. The top has been in the garage in a box since I got back from Louisville last year.
Keep leather or vinyl looking new with this (no, not a salesman...just a very satisfied consumer). Just ordered more!!
I need the roof frame and cover replaced. Any thoughts on cost!
I assume you did it yourself. With how many assistants and was there any prior experience? How many hours?
I have one in a box, that came with the car. From LBC or Moss - at least 5 years old in the box. So I'm thinking - a sunny August day to enable stretching. Thoughts?
Looks good, that is a chore for sure!
Maybe I should host a tech session, with plenty of coffee, pop, and donuts - then explain what needs to be done.
On my next top I'll be using a spray adhesive instead of contact cement, much more forgiving...
Good idea. I like 3M spray adhesive best.
I have a complete brand new frame with new header & I have a used top with frame in good condition available for sale
Walked a new MGB owner through some basic maintenance today...lubing front end...driveshaft and parking brake...adjusting rear brakes...checking fluid levels of shocks. None of my 1/2" drive extensions would work with his differential, so until I can make a tool...we left that for later. It was not broken...we did not fix it. ... See MoreSee Less

Good for you. This is often all it takes for someone to be able to do the everyday maintenance that just isn't done on modern cars. Maybe something we should think about doing as club events.
As for the socket- I had to have a piece of 1/2" square stock milled down something like 0.020 to make a little tool for getting the rear diff plug out.
We had a special drain plug wrench which had al different size ends that fitted male and female plugs, think it was made by a company called Melco.
I got a piece of square stock about 3 inches long and 7/16th's square at the one of the big chain hardware stores. One end fits in a 8 point socket and the other end fit the drain plug.
