Is it possible to fit MM front mudguards and grille to a series one Minor to make the car look like the designer intended to do?

I believe the only change required is the small panel in the front of the inner fender. It will foul with the headlight. There is a special stamped panel that goes there. And that is why the inner fender is two pieces and why the grille has a cut out in the fender. All together a much better protection from the wheel splash.

Narrowing the car four inches could be a challenge winking smiley

When you say MM are you working with a Series ll or a MM 1000 for the mudguards? If it's the latter, then you will have to plug the marker light hole in the mud guard when you put the cheese grater grill on since they are in the front grill panel.

Let us know how this works out.

Thanks Stuart,
I believe only the prototype was 4" narrower. After that the MM model had the same width as later models.

Making it into what we call a low-light? Nice!
