What about a 12V battery conversion?

If you are kicking your heels during the lock down and your MGBGTV8 has not had the twin 6V batteries replaced with a single or twin 12V upgrade, now is the time to think about doing it. There are guides available on the V8 Website on how to do a battery conversion on an MGBGTV8. There is also a very good twin 12V conversion kit available from Manor Garage & Sons near Wantage. Their kit comes with modern twin Yuasha 2020 12V batteries and the parts you need for the conversion.
