MG MG Y Type - rocker box
|Hi lads I want to buy a polished alloy or a chrome rocker box for my ya. Does anybody know where I can purchase one from, I have try several firms. Also what other rocker box will fit, thanks for your help don.|
|Might be cheaper to get the one you have chrome plated. It's worth visiting a local place that does this and see if they can do it as a one off for a reasonable amount..worth a try !|
Polished Aluminum ones are available on this side of the pond, but I personally do not rate them any better than the factory one. Why the obsession with bling? If it is just to make the engine bay look good, I personally do not think they succeed any better than a clean nicely painted one. If you need some leads as to where to look for a polished aluminum one, post back here and I will get you a link.
|hi Paul, I would like a polished rocker box because my engine bay has a rather drab appearance so I thought a chrome or polished alloy box would cheer the bay up a bit and take the eye off the flaws, but thanks for your input, I would like a link if that's o.k cheers Don.|
|hi D.Mullen thanks for your input as well its an ption that's worth thinking about thanks don ns|
|Here is one on your side of the pond. |
|According to my brother Scott, these are "very old, from the late '40s & early '50s" and were made for the MG TD Arnolt. |
