MG MGF Technical - Elastic Hood Straps
I noticed that someone was selling some elastic straps on e-bay for £9.99 to help with the roof being retracted, as mine has started to stop half way and i have to pull it forward again for it to go all the way back.
(and yes before anyone mentions the rear window is unzipped and laid flat first)So many don't i believe.
Apparently the ones fitted loose there elasticity after a while and this is what aids to having holes in your roof. I was just wondering if anyone had used these straps before and what they thought?
As this seems a very easy & cheap solution to an annoying problem.
|If you search the archive you'll find plenty of threads about this. Yes, they work perfectly - they were originally designed to push the folds of fabric away from the frame to prevent them being caught (the so-called "scissor action") but they also have the effect of completely solving the hood lock up problem.|
Got them and they are simple to fit and work a treat.
|Could I remind everyone that if they contact me direct the price is £10 with free delivery to the uk. With regard to how good they are, look at my Ebay feedback. Everyone that has bought them agrees that they cure the hood lock-up problem that is the curse of MGFs and MGTFs.|
