I bought a 1936 MG TA earlier this summer and began restoring it. It needs a lot of work. Almost all of the body needs to be re-fabricated. I ordered most of the wood for the body frame and just began working on the sheet-metal. This will take some time to finish.

I've been holding off on the restoration lately because of the cold and rain. I have a dehumidifier in the garage to help prevent rust. I bought some nuts and seals for the rear axles and need to get some stainless steel screws for the wood frame.

Yes, I've seen the Tesla electric cars. They're are producing electric cars that have decent performance. When I looked at them I thought they may be based on the Lotus frame/chassis but I wasn't sure. Thanks for the info.

My first car was British - a Leyland Marina. It cost $2k but did the job. What I would love to own one day is a Lotus Exige S. I know the series 2 have a Japanese engine but what the Brits have done to it is amazing. Great handling cars! The Brits are great with their engineering.


As for your restoration, I wish you well, it looks like a big job. A friend of mine is restoring a Ford Mustang (67 I think). He loves the big American cars with the big V8 donks. He's been working on it for over a year now but it's starting to come together now.

I'm glad you don't want to see the gory intermediate details.
