Two new articles have been added. Ian Williams has provided useful notes and photos on fitting a 5-bearing engine (using the sump adapter plate originally developed by Allan Bachelder) to supplement information previously contributed. Also John Beesley made a discovery totally by chance of some original drawings used by Pressed Steel Ltd to construct Magnette bodyshells. As well as being of historical interest these will be helpful to anyone trying to reproduce all details of the body panels and welding points

A further batch of Magnette 70th Anniversary badges are to be produced, if a sufficient number have been pre-ordered. By making a larger quantity the cost has been kept to around £30 for a pair comprising a grille badge (77mm across) and a pin badge (30mm) both in the design shown here, with enamel and chrome finish.
