Hello from NYC,
I have been restoring a 67 MGB GT for the past 11 years, it has been an on and off... mostly off procedure, but I came across a photo of a 67 that was absolutely fantastic and it restarted my engines. As a result, I have been pushing forward full tilt on the project.
I was just looking for helpful chat as well as advice on how my build was going.
Thanks,

That's one comprehensive stripdown!!!! did you get the shell blasted, dipped, or was it all by hand?

Inch by grueling inch... paint remover, grinder, wire wheel, media blaster, lots of nicks and scrapes, a few foreign objects in my eyes, and time...
Looking back, hindsight being 20/20 the next time, if ever, I do this again it will go out to be blasted and etched.
Anyone considering doing what I did, DON'T there are more enjoyable ways to spend a few weekends...
