Octobers update on the 1969 MGB-GT

So far we have been making good progress on the MGB-GT. We received the MGB-GT back from the media blaster removed and installed new left and right floor pans into the car. Fabricated several small patch panels throughout the car. Sanded the car with 180 grit, performed some minor body filler work. Actually the body on this car is in excellent condition and did not require a lot of work.

Rubberized undercoating has been applied to both the front wheel well housings, back sides of the fenders, and the bottom of the new floor pans.
