Hello everyone!

After wearing out this website and asking many dumb questions since 2014 or so, I just found this thread!

Iím Dave, I live in the Northern VA area, and am working a Ď79 MGB Rover 4.6 conversion. Iím still working full time with young kids at home, so progress is slow. Paint is done, engine parts are trickling in, garage is a mess. Total investment is more than Iím ready to contemplate.

I have a build thread going, which needs an update.

I was bitten by the MG bug before I was born, and grew up in a harvest gold (maybe bracken) 1973 MGB that my dad bought nearly new in 1974. It was painted green and nearly rusted in half by the time I drove it every day in high school, often far faster than was safe or legally permissible. My dad restored it with a BMH bodyshell to mostly stock spec with damask red paint in the late 1990s, and itís in my garage now, in great, rust-free but road-worn, daily driver condition. Original engine has lasted longer than three speedometers (approx 150,000mi) without a rebuild, but it now has less oil pressure and runs a bit hotter than Iíd like.

I absolutely love this forum, and often surf it a few times a day. Iíve learned SO much about engines and MGs, and I am forever greatful to the guys here for helping me understand it all.

Many thanks to all of you for making this such a great place to hang out.

Dave,
You'll like the fact that next years British V8 meet is a stones throw away in Wytheville next June - come and say hello, kick tires and take lots of photos....you'll leave with a renewed energy to complete your project!
Stay tuned to this website for details!
