MG Midget Front end resto

With the welding complete at the rear I moved up to the front of the car.

Remember this?

Well after I ground off the rivets and bolt heads holding the ‘repair’ on this was revealed.

I made a patch up and as well as seam welding it I plug welded onto the chassis leg.

The Midget is going to be bumperless and the owner wants a clean look so the 1500 vents were filled in with steel. This will have a skim of filler over the top to profile it.imag1152_zpslolwpn61

Next up will be to strip the underseal off then paint and stone chip the underside.
