If you have ever wondered what goes into making a panel assembly for your MG then you can now see a short video showing how the skilled craftsmen at the BMH Body Plant at Witney make an MGB front wing. It's done in the same way as they were made at Abingdon back in the 1960s. Fifteen parts go into a front wing and the assembly with the welding , dressing and finishing takes an hour. Then the finished wing is sent to an industrial paint company where it's degreased and completely coated in an electrophoretic primer to provide long term rust protection. That treatment can accept normal finishing primers without having to be stripped first. See the video
