Hi everyone,

I have a good friend in Southampton who, with his brother, is restoring a recently purchased MG A.

He's asked me to recommend someone who can restore (re screen print?) the dial on the fuel gauge; he knew I had used a company to do the faces of the instruments on the Austin, but couldn't remember who....

George Bazeley
