: : I am ordering a Mk1 MG midget hood for my Mk1 Turner Climax from the UK where I am going in the next day or two. They have asked for a measurement
: : "Please measure the length of the hood from the centre of the front edge to the centre of the rear edge (front to back)".
: : I can't do this as my old hood rotted away and was disposed of 20 odd years ago, and the frame is at an engineer's for repair and he is away.
: : I need to confirm the order ASAP so that it can be delivered while I am in England for me to take home.
: : PLEASE could someone somewhere take this measurement for me ASAP!!!!
: : Many many thanks.

: Hi Andrew
: From the front edge (not including the part that tucks under the screen frame) to the rear edge measures 50" (1270 mm) on mine. This was bought some years ago as a mark 1 Sprite hood
: Hope this helps
Mine measures 49" with no tension on the hood frame. I had mine tailor made many years ago in Ladbrook Grove as I recall.
