    Application:    This Tailgate fits all MGB GT models, it is a direct replacement panel for the original Tailgate, but this is specifically made for racing or track days etc to save weight on the car.


    Captive Nuts:    It comes with 8mm captive nuts bonded in at the top for the attachments and 5mm captive nuts at the aperture for the locking mechanism. 


    Durability:    This panel is manufactured for racing or track days only, it has one full layer of matting with an additional strip applied on areas for the attachment points or where holes need to drilled.


    Weight:    The rule of thumb is lightweight panels save approximately one third in weight against the road use version.  This panel weighs approx 5-6 kgs.


    Bolt Holes:    We don’t pre-drill any bolt holes, it is far better to line the panel up and drill the holes where needed, also any holes in the panel make it more fragile and susceptible to damage in transit.  Bolt holes are marked in the panel which can be used as a guide. Tip: drill elongated holes to give room for adjustment when fitting.


    Fitting:        Transfer over all existing fitting attachments and fit as per the original Tailgate.

    Paint Prep:    Firstly, sand the panel down roughly, then apply primer/filler – a rough sand down will ensure the primer/filler keys well.  Sand down again to a smooth finish and finally apply top coat, either Cellulose or Two Pack can be used.
