Drew HastingsOuch....those came out of nowhere...best get that looked at soon....!!!! 🙁
Bruce E BarrettBad things happening behind that dog leg.
Bruce E BarrettI had to cut both out and replace with Moss pieces.
Drew HastingsIt would be REALLY painful having to cut anything out of THAT car......
Bob LewisRemember - these cars rust from the inside out. When you start sanding that you will find holes.
Simon DixSorry to see that - had to do the same with my 77B and could barely watch the cutting. Turned out fantastic though, under the expert eye and work of John Mangles.
Martin P MurphyGot 'em!
Jeff TaylorSend it to the crusher... 🙂
Kelvin DoddI'm going to get flack for this, but oh well. If the sheetmetal is original I'd think about making sure the drains are open, then flushing the area to remove the decades of debris. Then injecting thinned rust inhibitor. That should retard further damage.
Kelvin DoddI mention this because I have an original paint 67 GT with some front fender bubbling. I don't want to do a full repair and paint for a few bubbles.
John ManglesKelvin, sounds like someone that doesn't really know how to do it right. If done correctly, you should not have to do a complete repaint. AND if done correctly, no one would know the difference. Just sayin.
Jeffrey JohnRust never sleeps
Paul Hanley Jr.Thanks all. I will have it looked at soon. I wish this area had someone like you, John M, that knew their way around MGB's. I suppose once it's ground down, we can further appraise and see if she can be spared from the crusher!!
John ManglesPaul, Just send it to me. I'll crush it....😉
Roger DeaconI have my 78 B starting to look like this also but won't go to the crusher as it is very rust free.
Max ThoreIt happens!
John M. PlaskettJust in time to plan a winter project.
Paul Hanley Jr.She still shines up like a new penny.

Paul Hanley Jr.Tomorrow's spit shine project. Both cars are to be featured this weekend as part of a very cool boat show-- Sultana's Downrigging Weekend.
James J SchulteTerry Bradshaw is not going to be happy about this. You forget to get your shingles vaccine...
Daryle MurrayACNE! 😛
Tom LeStrangeFixed mine on the right side last winter. Left side starting soon. Never driven in salt!
Paul GrahamWhen I ground off the rust bubble the rockers started leaking sand......
