I'll pass this over to Chuck, I have never seen this before. I was under the thought Peter designed these areas himself. Very interesting, thanks for posting this.

+1, I've sent the doc over to Peter.

Definitely referring to competition models.

The first 3 cars had already been ordered in Sept '64, before Chuck started, which was around Halloween '64.

Jeff, thanks for looking. Yes, believe the bolt I posted is from AMK, got the photo off of ebay. I actually had one of the cursive "F" bolts Bob mentioned, will have to cut the end off a little but otherwise will work great.

Check to make sure it's the right size first.  The cursive f bolt is most commonly used at the distributor hold-down and seen them on the ends of oil pans too.  The coil bracket to block is a larger (thicker) size bolt.

The only conceivable 'benefit' one can think of with visible post count is buying items offered for sale here.  Some forums have a minimum post count or time period before being able to post in the classifieds or to send PM's/DM's.  Would suggest if removing visible post count, the additional requirements noted are implemented.

Have to say that's the first time I've ever seen that done on a car.   ??? ???

All I'll have to take then would be the MGB!

Charles, what light bulb are you referencing? I am talking about the shielded wire that connects to the fuel tank sender that goes across the top edge of the gas tank in the trunk area into the harness above drivers wheelwell. How is replacement shielding put on that wire without cutting the molded connector at the tank sender off?

My fault, was referring to the license plate light wire covering, which is the same material.  For the fuel sender wire, the only way I've done this is cutting the wire further up into the tail light wire harness, slide the cover over and splice the wire.  The rubber grommet where the wire goes through the trunk floor can be cut with a new razor blade, there's usually a seam line to cut on.  Note the location and install back, glue the grommet together.

Martin, the end of the wire that has the terminal contact for the light bulb can be snipped off a new one installed.  Once that end is snipped off, the wire can be pulled out of the housing.  I don't recall exactly where I found the terminal ends.  If you'd like to save the end of the wire and not cut it, with some perseverance, the crimped terminal can be removed... and if you're really good, maybe can re-use it.

The asphalt wire covering can be purchased online.  It's not very difficult to replace.  The contact wire inside the light socket can be snipped off and the wire pulled out of the assembly.  New covering slid on and a new contact end crimped on.

SO what does the Bible say about this car?

Present owner/whereabouts unknown.

Perfect!  That's exactly what I needed.  Now I just need to find the fitting for it.

The breather hose connection to the air cleaner base is made into the base, not a separate piece.
