MG MGF Technical - TF FRONT ON ORIGINAL MGF


I read in a thread that you could convert your MGF front into a TF front.
Is this really possible? What would it cost? How will it look like?
BTW why would anyone change the standard VVC front? It looks much better than the TFs.

Well, I am just interested.

30 ' C in Stockholm Sweden now! Nice for the VVC!

Philly,

Brown & Gammons are also advertising TF front and rear bumpers conversions including headlights for the F.

Where are they advertising this? I've looked on their website, but can't see anything.

Hi Paul,

Are you considering this mod on your Trophy?

God, no!!!!
I love my Trophy, and would never disfigure it in that way!!! I was just wondering (out of interest) what sort of price they would be looking at for it.
Having said that, if they ever brought out projector headlights for the Trophy, without the need to change the bumper or anything else, then I may consider it.
I am still trying to justify the cost of adjustable shocks and rear tie bars for my car. I am still looking forward to seeing your car at some point.
Cheers

It has been done and there are pics on the web. Dieter has more information on this one.

Can't recommend, cause I was told it should be an ar*se to convert. So costs lots of $$$.

The pictures of the BRG are far below @ http://www.mgfcar.de/mgtf/index2.htm

More to follow at any time. I've seen the car last week in the dealers show room and have more pictures availiable done by a friend. Mad looking interference at the outer sides where the bumper meets the wings.
May be coincedence or just bad works, but who knows.

Paul,

I think it would be better to put a Trophy front on a TF!
John Manson

Ian, yes thanks for that, I owe you! Will have new parts this week for this conversion.
