First and foremost:
Support the Ukrainian people in their time of need!

The techniques for fitting the eight Lift-the-Dot studs on the MGB will open our tech discussion. Following that brief instruction we will move into our "Question and Answer" format. You can pose a question about any MG model, any MG subject in the chat section.. John Twist will answer / comment on your question and others on the Zoom call will often choose to comment about their experience.

If it were today I would gladly join you. As it falls on a Sunday I am unavailable.

Hi All

My carpet for the Mini arrived this week.

What is your favorite material to glue the vertical pieces of carpet to the body?  I would prefer a brush on product rather than a spray on product.

I like Weldwood Contact Cement (solvent based, not water based). 

Oh ... I also need to “afix” the carpet clip studs to the floor.  Any thought on the material to use here?   My first attempt failed.

Bring them Monday and I’ll have a look at them. Can’t tell without seeing them. 


One last thing.
This is the weekend for the big car show in Macungie.  The featured marque is “all British cars”.  MGs and Minis are on SAT and other marques are on SUN.

Yeah, I’m thinking of going up on Sunday. I won’t be entering a car, though, because they don’t allow day-of-show entrants at Das Auch Fest.

Thanks in advance.

Wheels at Wood Car, Crafts & Music Show

Kevin McLemore
 

Hi, folks -

Karen Schulte asked that I distribute the flyer for my robotics team's upcoming car show, so I've added a link to it at the bottom of this message.

The show will be held on Saturday, September 17 from 9:00 am-3:00 pm, at Archbishop Wood High School, at the corner of York and Street roads in Warminster, PA.

Those of you who've attended in the past know about the superb LIVE music show we offer, as well as the craft tables, robotics demonstrations and great food. This year we're adding a tour of the robotics team's laboratory, led by the students themselves. And of course there will be over a hundred AMAZING cars... last year we even had the Batmobile!

Every penny of your entry fee will directly benefit the students of Archbishop Wood's robotics team, the Fighting RoboVikings. As members of the team, students directly learn and practice valuable skills in engineering, leadership, project management, CNC, CAD, mechanical design & fabrication, prototyping, computer programming, strategic planning, electrical wiring and so much more. They enter their college years, and indeed their careers, with truly marketable skills that would be difficult to acquire any other way.

Since its inception members of this club have been kind enough to attend and support our show, and in 2021 we had a truly superb turnout of Little British Cars, most of which were from the Philadelphia MG and Delaware Valley Triumph Clubs. I thank all of you for your support in the past years, and I look forward to seeing many of you again this year.

Please come out and support these wonderful kids, and enjoy a unique and fun show.

I doubt RRs have ever been considered LBCs.
