MG TD TF 1500 - which headlight bracket is correct?
|i have a late 1950 TD. i have one headlight bracket that has studs down through the fender and the other has bolts up through the fender. which is correct? thank you. sincerely, tom|
|Studs. However, on my TD I have changed them all to stainless steel machine screws (full threads) from underneath, with stainless steel washers, to avoid rust problems. I welded over the tops of the holes in the brackets to create blind holes; this allowed me to spray paint the brackets.|
|Studs are original and the easiest in relation to fitting. You will find you have to lift the wing and to align bolt holes you will need three hands - studs just slip through. Roger's advice re stainless is excellent. Also don't bother with spray painting - get the brackets powder coated - a far, far superior job.|
