"If you only want it as an
emergency access type thing, you could pop down to Halfrauds, buy a
pushbike rear brake cable for sick squid and install a manual boot
release. Hide the end of the cable somewhere only you know about and
bingo you never need worry about your keys and the boot again - works

...fit a high level brake light to an MGF (3rd brake light)
a bonnet light
part of the cost cutting exercise that MG made on the TF was to delete
the light from under the bonnet. Retro fitting one is a fairly easy
task and certainly DIY-able.
- First of all, get
yourself a light, it is exactly the same as the boot light, so a
breakers yard would be a good start. I fitted mine by using the earth
plunger switch at the back left of the bonnet. This is used for the
alarm system, but also doubles as a light switch. I took a live from
the under bonnet fuse box with an in line fuse, and the earth from the
plunger switch, running it behind the plastic cowl at the rear of the
bonnet, I fitted a piggy back connector to take both the alarm and
light earth connectors. There is already a cut out in the bonnet for a
light and I fed both wires up to this. I used the appropriate
crimped end connectors and tided the wiring up by wrapping it
with black insulating tape.

intermittent wipe, the clever sparky bods are trying to come up with a
solution. Still worth fitting the stalks though.
