MG MGF Technical - Accessories
I have just purchase some parts from Mike Satur (Who were of great help - strongly recommend). I have gone for basics to start, a chrome gearstick and handbrake lever. Does anyone know how to get the existing one off. I dont want to damage anything so any help would be great.
I think Mike usually sends pretty good instructions with all his parts.
The original handbrake lever just pulls off (towards the front of the car). Mine needed a good yank (as they say). The gearknob depends which kind you have - most just unscrew.
|Thanks Paul, I think I will just wait for the parts to come through.|
I am also debating what stereo and speakers to put in the car. I basically want a fairly decent CD player with some good component speakers. Any recommendations?
|Loads of info in archives.|
It's all down to how much money you want to spend.
I've gone for infinity speakers for the doors, and the standard Rover speakers in the t-bar.
Sound is amazing compared to original setup.
I just went for this setup as it was an easy option.
|A guy stopped me in the street yesterday and gave me a spare gear change knob and steering wheel from an MGF. If any one wants them for free then let me know.|
PS Please excuse hijack of the thread.
|Is it a non-standard wheel?|
a wooden one?
|i take it there was no air bag with the wheel :0)|
Drop me a mail and I will more than happily take them from you. Of course I will pay for carriage!!
|Bog standard black wheel with no airbag|
Email on its way Neil
|In addition to the audio system I want to stick some 6x9" speakers in the T Bar (I think like the mark 2, I currently have a 1996)|
Does anyone know the tech side of fitting these? Would a car audio centre be skilled enough to get in there?
|Easy way and difficult way.|
Easy way is to buy a Mk2 T Bar and just swap them over. Hard way is to cut holes in your one and fiddle around until you are happy with the result. I know of one person who went for the harder option and expressed a view afterward that all in, the cost of necessary parts and time spent doing the job works out at around the same as buying a Mk2 T Bar!
Personally, any job that entails cutting large holes int he trim of the car is not something i would entrust to Joe Shmoe's Audio. :-)
