Having trouble posting or changing forum settings? The MG Experience www. As I jump into the effort of restoring my 73B, I started a chart I’m not anal-retentive or super-analytical, but that’s why I’ve learned to have a list. Yes, I searched the Experience but didn’t find anything.
Something specific to MGBs would be good. I can google generic stuff.
If not, that’s cool. I’ll make one and share. Simple categories like “Tasks”, “Parts” and “Tools”, and a way to keep photos would be cool, wouldn’t it? Any help would be welcome. But I’ll share my own creation for posterity if one really doesn’t exist! I wrote the MGB Purchase article that is still in the Library years ago, back then there wasn’t one of those either!
North of Seattle, N. You will need to do your own based on the level of restoration you are doing. Full out down to bare tub,every nut bolt and screw?
Or just a rolling restoration. Watch An Mg is Born on youtube,other members have posted their restorations in the member journals.

Edited 2 time s.
Last edit at Dave’s site forum member has a great restoration of his once many colored MGB http: I donated to and use this spreadsheet I have used it for several restorations so far and found it to be very builld.
See the restoration process here: See post 8 in this thread for a list that Peter NOHOME posted – this plus many of the others here should make a great start on a comprehensive template. Guys, I’ve just written an article on this very subject that should be published in the next couple of months: I can’t release the article early but I can help personally.
