Not bad, at around $165/each.
Mazdatrix has genuine Panasport Race 15x7 @ 5x4.5 bolt pattern (would have to check local laws to see if road legal) for $240/each.

Engine and trans are finally on their way, should be ready to pick up on Wednesday.
Today I am clearing off, leveling, and cleaning up the build table.
If that gets done I will try to set the chassis onto it.
Plan is that as the third builder I will be the one that gets it finished.
Thinking I will label all the tubes to become familiar with their designations.

Hmm, chassis is heavier than expected, does have welded in steel floors.
Now on the build table waiting for the engine to arrive so that mounts may be configured.

Mine is just the bare 'skeleton' & I was surprised how heavy it seems. If I had to guess, 3-400lbs? My father-in-law & I were able to carry it out of the garage to spin it around nose-in so I can work on de-rusting the rear half of the chassis.

Engine and trans are here at last.
The Webers turn out to be Dellorto but that is OK so long as they are in good shape.
I've found a few possibilities for a more interesting and lower profile alloy valve cover.

Determined that the MGB-GT parts car I have has an excellent set of gauges in it.
Going for traditional so these will be very satisfying to use. 8)
