Not yet Cam got it in pretty rough shape around 7 months ago hadn't been driven since 1994, needed lots of welding which my friend helped me with. Tinkered around with the engine for a few days and it fired up past its MOT test so it could be driven on the road and starting on the body work very soon.

Lee, When I look at the pictures that are posted on the web, it seems that most of the MM have ill fitting doors, front fenders and door sills/rocker panels. I imagine the odd gaps between panels is due to accident damage /and or rusty body elements about to drop off.. Very few cars on the web site appear to "Straight". Is that a wrong assumption on my part ??Cam H

It could be a few things like accident damage but I would imagine it's mainly due to the car flexing when having panels cut out and welded back in over the years from what I have seen its mainly the doors my drivers door won't line up I think it's because it's been sat for years with a rusted sill and floor and has flexed over time then when I welded the new panels in nothing would line up easy

Lee, Thanks for your reply. What you mentioned makes perfect sense from what that posted pictures show and the original construction of the car. With no real frame, stress on the elements translates to misalignment. Cam H
