        Is that the 1.8 injection engine? if so it's the same conversion that im doing. I have my mgf partly stripped only the dash and loom to come out then the engine. Will be watching this one

            Similar to my conversion too I guess. I spent a weekend striping the mgf and that got pretty much it all done so doesn't take too long and is quite simple. Do you know how your going to mount the front subframe? Use the mg ones or going to modify the frame like wastons? kit does?

                        You could try using Metro 13" wheels as the PCD is the same. That's what I've done. They just fit over the MG F discs. If you use 175x50x13 tyres there is no need to modify the arches.
                        If tha does owt fo nowt, olas do it fo this 'en.
