MG MGA - Engin bay color
|Hey good folks, it appears that the engine bay in my red 1960 body is black. Is this correct or was the car once black?|
|The engine bay should be the some color as the body. With a 1600 the only way that you are likely to find the original color short of getting a Heritage Certificate is to remove one of the tail light plaths, and, hopefully, find the original color under it.|
The engine bay should be body colour except for the vertical firewall panel at the back of the engine.
|Thomas, if you look under the dash you should be able to see the origianl color unless the car has had a total body off restoration. Engine bay should be the same as body color except for firewall panel which is seperate panel painted black.|
|Say, Andrew, -- MGB fan blade with the notches?|
|Hey Andrew, thanks for the pix, it is to be my model, if I ever get that far. Regards and HAPPY NEW YEAR! Tom|
