Louis Guigoz RIP

O what sad news, I met with Louis and Josette in Geneva and we had a great time discussing Scimitars generally and also the Middlebridge marque. Louis and Josette travelled many thousands throughout Europe in MB 29 and really increased the marque awareness at the same time. Louis was sadly forced to...

New to forum. Ex 6A Owner & RSSOC Member from mid ‘80’s. Looking for another now in Australia.

There is a Middlebridge in Perth, Australia, No 32 and the owner is currently returning her to her former glory. There was quite a bit of paperwork involved and the owner ended up stripping components from the car to save costs. Apparently the rules for importing a car I parts is a lot different to ...

MB rear ARB drop link

Hi All The Middlebridge ARB links 'n' roll bar were developed by Harvey Bailey and form part of the suspension / handling upgrade that Middlebridge undertook to further improve the handling of the larger body. You can use your Middlebridge without the rear anti roll bar fitted. I only noted increase...

FAO MICK GAUGHRAN - URGENT

Hi All I could not and did not want to answer earlier for fear of making matters worse, I did accidentally open a file from an RSSOC member on my phone while on the train home, it very soon became obvious that something was wrong. I called home and my computer was delivered to the PC store straight ...

Alpine stereo

I must agree with Will, I have had 4 and all have had the two front speakers and two fitted into the rear transom panel. One did have grills near the rear seats but no speakers fitted.


Good luck on your quest.

Top and Bottom Hoses

I have owned 5 Middlebridge's and not one registered the same temperature on the guage when compared to readings taken from various points cooling system wise. My regular MB reads 8 degrees high on the guage. This did use to bother me but over the years I guess I have got to know her better. The poi...

Top and Bottom Hoses

Hi Chris Wow, I had not given this subject anywhere near enough thought and just took it as a given that converting to the 'flexible' silicone would give a better / speedier flow rate. But hey, that's the great thing bout forums. incidentally my silicone guy has done me a few specials including the ...

Top and Bottom Hoses

Hi Andrew Yes all of the Middlebridge's were originally fitted with Gates top and bottom hoses and are corrugated in design, Personally I totally agree with you and think some nice black silicone hoses should potentially improve circulation. If you are considering going this route please count me in...

How to remove the Automatic Gearbox Selector Cover

How bizarre, mine is in the same position as the grey one (right back). I too cannot feel any screws at all at the front + no access at all at the rear.
I'm intrigued now as I did consider removing my cowling as well.

Looking forward to this mystery being solved. :D

6a / 6b/ GTC / MB Mirror Plinth etc

Hi Mike and Pete

Many thanks for the replies.
I was told that the front grill was totally unavailable but I will call Graham.
Pete, Your front Grille looks great but I think I will stick with just the four screws. :D
Mike many thanks for the MGB tip which I will take up.

Many thanks

Mick G
