This is a Suspension housing from a 1952 MG TD Car. The housing was badly corroded & the customer wanted a 3D Cad model in order to remake the part as the drawings the customer had only covered internal machining dimensions.
The part had to undergo significant cleaning in order to get suitable surfaces for scanning. The part was suscessfully 3D scanned and reproduced in CAD. The MG T series included the TA, TB, TC, TD, and TF Midget models, a range of body-on-frame convertible sports cars produced in a sequence from 1936 to 1955. The last of these models, the TF, was replaced by the MGA.
The TF name was reinstated in 2002 on the mid-engined MG TF sports car.
