MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - Berlinetta Lights
Can you put Berlinetta lights covers on a B? Are they the same size? Are they available? I have the sebring perspex covers already and could just cut to fit and put some sort of silver plastic around the edge.
The reason is I want a different B,so far she is a 3.9 EFI GTS winged/guarded roadster with a semi-permenant Manton hardtop(all the way to her rear valance).So a bit of Berlinetta at the front would top her off nicely.I know she's not to everyones taste but I love her.
|Warren, from what I've read the Berlinetta pieces were custom made for those cars and are no longer available. Even so, the headlamp is set further back in the wing than on a B so body work would be necessary. The closest thing I can think of would be covers for the Datsun/Nissan 240Z which are available for around $70US a pair. Again, body work would be required to shape the wing to match, but they would look pretty close to the Berlinetta when done.|
if you like a different look for your headlights, there is a unique MGB with headlights from the new Mini Cooper. Lots of work but it looks very good IMO.
