Peter Nixon reports "I finally got to the point where the car is one colour throughout, just the doors, boot and bonnet to do now. Two pack primed throughout, new panels, the underside stone chipped, then final paint in Pageant Blue throughout - engine bay, passenger area and boot".

"Found a website which suggested BGC Motorsport for Princess brake callipers - MGB metric - imperial braided hoses as Clive Wheatley does not do them anymore. Gave them a call and the guy said no problem, he can make me a pair. Like Clive he said he does not see many Princess 4 pot calipers these days - getting hard to find".
