It was driving me nuts trying to figure out how to straighten these air filter covers. I don't have a body dolly that fits inside of a round hole. But I did find that an inch and 5/8 holesaw works just great. ... See MoreSee Less

When buying a new convertible top, what material do you prefer and why? I live in Texas, have a 68 B daily driver, and I've already lined up an experienced, professional installer. I've also already decided on a "Zip" window.So, what do you suggest?A) Traditional VinylB) Everflex VinylC) StayFast Cloth, (is this also known as "Mohair Canvas" or are the two different?)I like the look of the cloth/canvas tops but have heard negative feedback about the difficulties keeping them clean.Looking forward to your comments. ...

Rick IngramWhatever top you get, get a zipout rear window....especially living in Texas.
Andy LincolnStay fast
Steve NaertHad new black StayFast top installed on '77B several years ago at John Twist's University Motors, the top they recommended. Folds easier than the vinyl and doesn't stick together like the vinyl did when it was rolled up. No problems at all keeping it clean using RaggTop convertible top protectant (www.amazon.com/Raggtopp-02141-RaggTopp-Farbric-Protectant/dp/B0002KKIUK). Definitely go with the zippered rear window.
Robert RushingI've always liked Robbins tops. I've had great luck with them - well except when the massive hail storm punched holes through it...
Scott HowerI have a mohair boot cover/short tonneau. Love it, it's easy to clean.
Gail LenhardOur shop, Glenn's MG Repair, only uses Robbins tops. They fit nicely and looks great.
Frank BiceI prefer Stayfast cloth. Mine is black and I use my air compressor to clean it.

MGB gets ‘official’ BMH five-speed gearbox conversion
British Motor Heritage is now offering a five-speed manual gearbox conversion kit with ‘Heritage Approval’ for the MGB.

Robert RushingI'd like to try one
Keith ManglesMe too!
Allan WatsonOh yeah......at roughly 4 grand US, there are much more cost effective options.
Allan WatsonMy other point would be if you want a Mazda tranny.........buy a Mazda.
Simon DixInteresting but at that price I'd buy an original MGB gearbox with overdrive and have zero install differences.
Rick IngramI believe Ken Costello had a five speed gearbox that he devoloped back in the mid-90s. Granted, it was designed for the V8.
Fred FoxSweet .
Kelvin DoddIt is a nice conversion, with the case especially adapted to suit the B. Personally, I'd go for an overdrive, but it does make a nice alternative.
