13. New carpet fitted. Another bargain from one of many annual visits to the Stonleigh MG spares day.

14. I bought a pair of red door trims at one spares day, then a roll of matching vinyl the following year, to make all the other trim. The old trim was used as a pattern. The new hard board came with the mild steel sheets bought for the body work.

17. Fitting the wiring loom. I made a new loom from the dash back to the boot using a new set of cable and connectors. The old loom was stretched across the decking / patio and used as a pattern. 18. Dash board re-fitted. The dual oil /water gauge was rebuilt by Speedy Cables. All the other instruments were just cleaned and polished.

I didn't expect to get much done on the MG that year due to the lack of a work shop and a hands on involvement in the extension but as it turned out, partly due to the good weather, it was the most productive year on the car to date.
