The Arrival

So at long last my MG Midget has arrived at the workshop during the late hours of Monday night.

It was such a good feeling that I almost forgot how cold I was. Huge thanks must go out to my friend James Shopland who has helped me so generously and to Kim Dear of Magic Midget who has been very helpful and kind during this purchase.

I did have a better look over the car and there are certainly some bad areas that need attention, most of which I was already aware of, but on the whole there are many good points with the overall condition which has given me a real boost about this project.

The engine will definitely need an overhaul as we suspect it has seized, but there was some sort of oil in the sump so we are hoping that it is down to the fact that the engine has not been started in years, rather than mechanical failure. Have to wait and see on that one.

So now the stripping down and documenting beings! (click on images to enlarge)
