Wanted: FIA or Halibrand Centrelock Wheels for MGB Splined Hubs

Hi All, I would like to replaced the chrome wire wheels on my 289 cobra with a set of FIA 289, Halibrand or similar alloy type centre locking wheels. My car is a Mk1 BRA 289 running MGB splined centre lock type hubs, so the wheels would need to fit these hubs. Does anyone have a set they're interest...

Re: Goodwood Speed Week - 16-19 Oct

What a superb event this was. So nice to see such lovely and historically important cars being thrashed around the track like they were £500 hot hatches :-) The S F Edge Trophy races were just amazing and thrilling to watch as the drivers hustled those Edwardian aero-engined cars around Goodwood Cir...

Le Mans Hard Top on BRA Mk1 289 - Anyone Done It?

Hi All, I have a Mk1 BRA 289 which I love, but I would really like to put a hard top on it, and particularly a Le Mans style hard top. I would love to know if anyone has already done this with a BRA? If so, how difficult was it? If anyone has any photos of the fitting process on any 289 I would love...

Re: Chassis Corrosion Protection - What do you use?

Thanks Migge - I do like the look of your wheel arch extensions. Would love to see some more photos of your car and how you built-up the arches if possible?

Did you start with a standard slab side BRA body?

Re: Chassis Corrosion Protection - What do you use?

Thanks for all the responses. Most appreciated.

I have now ordered some POR 15, primer and rust converter from Frosts.

After my engine rebuild I am pleased to say I don't have any oil leaks, at present :-) I'm sure that will change with time though!

Chassis Corrosion Protection - What do you use?

Hi All, I have a Mk1 BRA which has a couple of localised areas of surface corrosion on the chassis. I want to clean the chassis and paint it to protect it from corrosion. My car isn’t a garage queen and I like to use it as much as possible, including during dry winter days. What paint or rust protec...

Thanks Peter C - I didn't realise that Gerry offered Cobra style rocker covers. I will contact him to find out more.

Re: BRA 289 FOR SALE

Very nice BRA. I also have a Mk1 BRA which was completed (by a previous owner) in 1990. As your car is a 1981 car it must be one of the first made, with an early serial number.

Nice looking car, and for sale at a very reasonable price for the specification. Best of luck with the sale.

Re: WANTED: Cobra Le Mans Rocker Covers to Fit Rover V8

I have contacted John Redmond (JRV8) and got a price for his rocker covers. However, it wasn't John that made the Cobra Le Mans rocker covers my friend has. His covers look much more original than the ones that JRV8 offer. I will keep searching. Thanks for the help though. Whengparts.com are the che...
