Then I bought this 1500 Midget, it was a bit bent...

It was straightened and my old Sprite body panels used, together with a roll cage and Rover V8 engine. Several resprays later...

Here it is just before it went back into my garage. The hood is only placed in position.

Hi Sooty
I will put my spare doors on with wind up windows, install the hood and put the silenced exhaust pipes back on. I do have another bonnet with a smaller bulge, but that needs the 6" ram pipes taking off, so I will decide that later.
