Manuals & Reference Material
In order to familiarise myself with what was involved in the build I obtained:
The NG Build Manual from NG Cars (around 100 A4 pages in a ring file). This is, of course, essential and the £20 cost was refunded when I purchased the chassis.
The MGB Haynes Workshop manual (No. 111 - available from Halfords, etc.). This I also consider essential as it contains MGB related instructions, settings and data.
The Moss Parts Catalogue available free from Moss Europe Ltd. This is extremely useful as it contains exploded diagrams of all MGB parts and part numbers.
The MGB Hive Catalogue available free from MGB Hive
The MG Owners' Club Spares & Accessories Catalogue available free from the MG Owners Club
Also Interesting - The Kit Car Manual
Haynes published a book in May 2003 called The Kit Car Manual (H962) by Iain Ayre. Having read this, I can recommend it as a good, informative book with a light-hearted approach and plenty of useful tips. It includes a wide variety of kit cars but cannot, therefore, go into a lot of detail about individual aspects of building a particular kit. Personally I would think of this book more as a guide than a manual - in fact the cover of the book says it is "The complete guide to choosing, buying and building British and American kit cars". I guess that's about right!
