    Yeah, when I assembled my Yellow car, I got bags labelled "front suspension" "Rear suspension" "Miscellaneous"

    And of course I found Front suspension bolts in the rear and miscellaneous bags. My wife was more concerned that after I completed the assembly, that I had A LOT of extra bolts, washers and nuts left over.

    It's held together pretty much for coming up on 20 years now, so I guess it's ok.

    Good luck with the build, you may have to grind the chamfer off of a cheap socket to tighten up the half head bolts for the underside of the roll bar if they still use that half depth bolt head. No biggie, but read the manual to check.

    Congrats on starting your build. Looks like a nice spec! I just recently sold my 64 MGB and a lawn tractor so have a little more room in my garage. Hope to be starting my 310S build pretty soon!

    Less wind resistance = higher top speed.

    Yes - the famous "shortages" box. In some cases, it's more than one. If you can't find it in the appropriate box - immediately go to the shortages box(es). Generally, these are items that were OOS during the first pick for the kit.

    Also - for US-spec cars, ignore all references to "IVA" in the assembly guide - you won't have the parts anyway.

    Inventory is done! Truth be told I haven't inventoried the contents of the various fastener packs and polythene bags. I'm not even sure if I have the correct fastener packs but the big bits are accounted for. So far all I've found missing is:

    1. One of the two door mirror plates,
    2. The green nyloc driveshaft nut, and
    3. Both front Watts link radius arms.

    And is this the right number of coolant hoses?

    The mystery tube is one of the 2 radiator hoses, it runs from the rear of the engine to the radiator. I seem to remember the manual says install it before putting the engine in, but just put it in after. The 3 other hoses are also coolant but they will be chopped up. There should also be a 5/16" hose for coolant which connects to the water expansion bottle - I didn't get this hose either, but it's cheap and readily available so I ended up buying locally just to keep the project moving.
