  2. so not wishing to be difficult , but a shell or body as you wish to call it can be manufactured by anyone, branded as the origonal and used as a swap out for a rusty one ? so the question still is , why a lightweight , with a diff that cant be changed cos the structure wont allow it to be removed and repaired cant be re boddied into a zero . the zero is the next inline in the rhsc brand , its the same company , its the same designer .so why the differance , is it cos the mgb is main streem , and kits are a distant second classs vechicle .the last kit that came out of rhsc was the lightweight , not a 2 b or something else . i am trying to promote thought . not raise a storm . i have been intreeged forsome time re the mgb , and the rebuild implications . its not origonal it does not come from the origonal factory . it may look the same but its not the origonal . a seven is a seven , with the exception of a. couple of manufacturers they all look the same . graham not wishing to upset or diss anyone but the question stands .
  3. British Motor Heritage Limited Range Road, Cotswold Business Park, Witney, OX29 0YB, United Kingdom If you reshell an MGB as an MGB that's ok .But its not an mgb shell the shell isn't made by mgb, its made by the above co. and i only asked a question, not trying to ovoid iva either, done 2iva and 3 sva.in the past. graham

    2B+ For Sale

    so taking the p155 out of nick might take the pressure of me mark?
  5. good plan mark thanks .
  6. so my question is ? whats legal and whats not ?can for instance a lightweight be re shelled into a zero as an mgb would be with a heratige shell and only an mot ? for compliance . regards graham
  7. hi mark thanks for the comments , however i still cant see the difference , between swapping out a mgb and a zero . not thinking of buying an id . but if as in the case of the mgb a shell is avaialable and only an mot is rqd . then why cant a lightweight become a zero as it is the generic replacement for a lightweight . we arnt talking about ringing here as the replacement has been purchaced legit, as would the mgb shell .and the lightweight for instance has history . regards graham
  8. just to add to the mix , for instance i have an mg , its got a rotton bodyshell, so i buy a heratage body shell, swap out all the bits from the doner as it were, end with a new shell and my bits fitted on on it , mot and on the road .?????????????? so if my lightweight needs a new diff, i know if the lightweight needs a diff the car is a rightoff cos you cant get the diff out without destroying the car i have tried 3 times to remove a diff without destroying the car .cos i have scrapped 3 lightweights . .so can i rebuild my lightweight into a zero and avoid a iva .as it would have poss ally worm and stress cracks.. i understand that a dutton should not be re regestered as a robin hood ect . so as far as the first bit i posted re the mgb whats the differance . graham
