thats possible, most things are for a price ! new steels are available to a different style, so it might not be too prohibitive if they are too far gone.

I've never had a problem with TB, but he's different to say the least in his approach and mannerisms with customers !

I know Lens site has Mag wheels, and I have seen one of Andys cars with wobbly webs which where apparently cast blank and drilled to fit the cortina.
I've got a few pics of late 66 LC's with BRM mag wheels.

Q: I have Dunlop D1's . . .where they ever made in Magnesium ?

is just that I bought my TVR Grantura in Canada and it came with American Racing magnesium wheels. Nice wheels , minilite type. I bought 8 compomotive minilite lookalikes in England. So we run those now (good wheels b.t.w.)
But now I have those american wheels in the workshop without using them which is a pitty because they look good. I might get them cracktested but that might be more expensive then a new compomotive!!

We've established that getting 8 Mag wheels restored to new is the same price as a new set of 4 Aluminium wheels . . . . given that Mag wheels are 4 times the price of Aluminium its worth it AMR weels are cool too !

MB wheels

Does anyone know what happened to MB racing wheels? I was working with Mike Barnby on some Dymag replica four spoke wheels. Now seems shut down and website gone.

MB was/is based in Medway towns & lives up in Surrey, i did hear the retirement word muttered a few times. There are phone numbers about online.
Good luck with crack testing.

There are diy crack testing kits available for very reasonable money. I used a few different types when fabricating at Cambridge motor Sport. Best one was a two components type spray. Aerosol the 'finder' onto the piece, let it soak for around five minutes then use the second can to show up any cracks etc. I'm pretty certain that kit came from Wurth.

Dont we need an official crack testing made by a recognized company, delivering a certificate with numbers and so on?

Read regulations, Appendix III to Appendix K to answer guesses.
