MGA Stainless Steel Mesh Grille Kit, Also Available for MGA MKII

Spoil your MGA or MGA MKII with a beautiful stainless steel Mesh Grille!

This is the ultimate upgrade of form and function: Killer Good Looks, and Superlative Cooling Ability.

From vintage to modern times, race cars and elite sports cars wore mesh, and MG racers were no exception. While ably protecting the radiator from stones and other debris, they allow Far more air to your radiator than common slatted grilles, even when every other slat is removed! And on top of that they just look incredible.

This kit fits aftermarket as well as original MGA grilles. Installation involves removing the slat assembly from your current grille, and replacing it with the formed mesh and custom brackets of this kit. This is not a difficult task, requiring only a few basic tools. Does not fit recessed MKII style grilles.

Kit comes with detailed illustrated instructions for the 1500/1600, to transform your MGA into an eye-catching and better performing sports car.

This Mk2 kit fits aftermarket as well as original MGA grilles. Installation involves removing the slat assembly from your current grille, and replacing it with our formed mesh and custom brackets. This is not a difficult task, requiring only a few basic tools.

Either NOW Available for only $125.00 from LBCarCo.

MGB Stainless Steel Mesh Grille Kit

Spoil your 62-74 MGB with a beautiful stainless steel Mesh Grille!

There are several versions of the MGB Chrome Grille, each with it's own geometric variations, so it is left to YOU to devise a way to mount this piece. Mesh is sent as a rectangle, cut on a 45 so the squares are oriented like diamonds (as in photo). If you are good with tools, the results are stunning!

NOW Available for only $55.00 from LBCarCo.

Keep Calm Folks - Now at LBCarCo

Just in! Now you can Keep Calm any time you wear this T-Shirt. A bit of background - this was a motivational poster produced by the British government in 1939, several months before the beginning of World War II to raise the morale of the British public in the aftermath of widely predicted air attacks on major cities. But, for some reason, it had only limited distribution and was little known by the public at that time. Rediscovered in 2000, it caught on and (with various variations) pops up not only on posters, but shirts, coffee cups, tote bags and more. Wear a bit of history and have some fun. They are only $15 each, sizes small through XXL.

Spam or Not to Spam

In this day and age Spam is not a good thing as we all know, but at one time it was the main staple to feed our troops in the field. Somehow this word has now been attached to unwanted emails. Our Chatter can also be viewed as Spam by some folks that get it when we send a NewsFlash or Chatter. PLEASE if you decide you don't want our emails rather than choosing to block it click on the link at the top of the Chatter or NewsFlash that says:

"To unsubscribe from our mailing list, please click here."

You will be automatically removed from our list no questions asked. Some folks enjoy reading the Chatter, which includes tech tips, event listings and more, but if you decide to block our newsletters with your Spam Blocker this sends a Blacklist warning to many ISP's and can prevent other folks from receiving our information.

Thanks in advance for your consideration.

On The Borderline by Rick Astley/3

Our good friend Rick Astley of British Car Electrical Book fame also has a funny side when he is not delving into the electrical issues of British automotive mysteries.

Rick has been doing these cartoons for our local MG Club for years and I thought that they might be cute to share and Rick gave us permission to publish them. They tend to be leaning to the Detroit/Windsor area but I think they are very humorous and as you can see Rick and his MGB along with his lovely wife are usually the personalities in the cartoons. They are all in fun and we hope you enjoy.

Oversize Shipping

On April 11, 2013 We were notified by Moss that their oversize fee structure would be put into place that day. (it has always been there to some extent, but now is formal.) This has been coming for some time now since the cost of shipping has steadily been rising and the carriers have continued to reduce the size requirements for standard packaging.

You will notice when you check out on our website (also on the Moss website and in the new Moss catalogs - available for PDF downloading on their or our website - click on the car logos to download) oversize parts are indicated and the extra cost for shipping them. Note there may be some parts that they have have not indicated as oversize but actually are. If they charge us for an oversize fee we may have to bill you for the fee and will then add it to the oversize fee notations on our site for future reference (we are never told in advance.)

LBCarCo always will attempt to give you the best prices and shipping rates whenever possible and we are also looking for avenues to save you, our customers money. Some of these cost saving methods are our Loyalty Program, slight delays in shipping to consolidate your order for more economical shipping when possible, shipping by a different carrier such as post when possible and more. We will be constantly monitoring this new program and will tweak it as needed.

This is very rare but on orders shipped by air that are over oversize, by weight or dimensions, we reserve the right to charge actual shipping. Usually shipments via air are considered oversize if over 12 x 12 x 12". Please ask us for a quote on air shipping in advance or we will notify you if you have requested this on your order by checking the confirm carriage before shipping block.

All quotations on shipping are approximate since actual shipping cost may vary some depending on fuel surcharges, actual size and weight once packed and when the order is actually shipped. Every effort has been made to provide accurate information. We reserve the right to correct typographical errors and will not be held liable for inaccuracy of pricing, descriptions or applications.

Take a LOOK at our NEW gallery set up for our customers and friends to show off their pride and joys. Each week customers send me images to show me their newly done restoration (with parts from LBCarCo of course) or just to let me know what their LBC looks like. Now you can display YOUR LBC for everyone to see. We have had numerous requests for this feature over the years and now it is here. There are categories for most of the marques as well as an other British Category and of course a British Motorcycle category too.

This Issues Car Star is Jeff and Jan Zorn's MGB 1963 MKI pull handle. This is our 1963 OEW MGB (on the left), purchased in 2003. Pic was taken at Dayton BCD. Her name is EmmieB.

LBCarCo Tech Tips - Each Chatter a New Reader Submitted Tech Tip! (WE NEED TECH TIPS PLEASE)


Tech Tip this issue is from James Hassall. Thanks Jim ($20.00 will be credited to your LBCarCo account) Please contact us ASAP for further info.

Bonnet Alignment Help

It is easy to mis-align the bonnet catch for the TR series of cars (and perhaps others, too), often resulting in a jammed release and lots of headaches. To ensure a good alignment on my TR:

I 'painted' some white lithium grease on the bottom washer of the hood fastener assembly (#802-275), gingerly lowered the bonnet and watched the imprint it left on the catch plate assembly (#802-230. Then I adjusted the hood fastener until the catch plate engaged the fastener perfectly. This will also save the paint on your nicely painted catch plate.


Please Keep those TIPS and Humorous Stories coming, WE ALWAYS NEED THEM!

You can earn a $20 purchase credit for each Tip or Story that is published in our weekly mailing. Please send your tech tips or other submission to me at put the words Tech Tip or Story in the subject line please. If you don't currently have an account with LBCarCo you can still make a submission. We will provide your credit of $20.00 (only one credit may be used per order/shipment, not valid for subscriptions) any time you should purchase something online from LBCarCo. Humorous Story or an article about and picture of your first LBC you would like to share with our audience, drop me a note along with the submission. They should be no more than 500 to 1,000 words. If we use it we will provide you with a $20 LBCarCo purchase credit.

Tech Tips are a service of LBCarCo and our friends and customers. They are provided on a use at your own risk basis. These tech tips may be reprinted in club publications as long as credit is given to Little British Car Co, LTD along with reference to our website and the individual that provided the tip. All award certificates or credits such as show, email, tech tip etc. (but not limited to) are good for one year from date of award. Paid gift certificates do not expire.
