Good to see you've made a start on it - nice to have a rollover jig. 8) Is that the original front bumper valence? It appears to be longer than usual (comparing it to my 1970 Traveller one which I've been re-painting today, as part of a frontal tidy-up) - possibly a van one? And what 1275 engine do you have - MG Midget or Marina/Ital?

Good to hear you have a Midget engine - they do go rather well with them fitted. Are you going for any other upgrades, aside from the 'angel eye' headlamps?

Floors wasn't to bad seen a lot worse lol .

As for the boot normal the rear lip has gone . got the new bit to go in . then will be adding more box sec to the rear in case of someone hitting it .
Unsure if the tow bar will go back on ( used to tow trailers and drag my old caviler caravan when needed to move it )

But yep getting there will be slowing down a bit now as weather is changing and I'm out side going it .....

A good tip once you've got the floors out , make sure you don't leave the grinder undo tool inside the chassis leg :o
Before welding the new floor in ..
.
Yep I have recovered the said tool ;)
