Not sure the F ever had a brace - I thought that was only ever on the TF?

Even if thats right though, I'm sure you could easily make it fit though with a dill and a few nuts and bolts.

I was lucky to get the coveted DieselDestroyer Front Towel Rail Brace, model 002 no doubt, was worth a laugh.

Your right never put on the F only TF. I have an F and bought a set in Silverstone MG Live, just had to bolt to the boot panel, but the holes were there under the engine cover for the other end of the braces.:respect:

Hallo everybody! Those braces are intended to increase the stiffness of the body, correct? How can they do it, been the holes on the rear side shaped like bottonholes? I don't know if I'm expressing myself correctly... But take a look at them, the part of the brace connected to the boot has not a normal round hole, so they can play as much as they want around the bolt that should fix them together. I pointed my attention there because my TF makes bad noises when I do sharp corners or any movement can stress the frame. I have checked for years the rear suspensions, even changing some parts, now I am wondering that noise might come from the frame, maybe from those braces.
What do you think about it?

Thanks in advance!
Cheers
Marco
