MG Midget On A Budget

I recently picked up a 1972 MG Midget. I was looking to restore the car, although my budget for this project is around $5000. This little MG fit the bill as the body is in excellent shape for a 48-year-old car. Yes, it has a little rust on the trunk lid and lower rocker panel right side, but nothing I can’t handle. I will be doing all the restoration myself, except for the paint. There are just some things better left to the pros I will leave to the pros.

    I am in a similar position. I bought a 1972 MG Midget that has been sitting in storage for 28+ years, mostly disassembled. I have the bodywork about completed and painted. I am now starting the process of putting it all back together. I have a nice little shop with a lift and many tools. Need advice and how-to videos and tips. Thanks Dennis Gates

      Hello Dennis,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      We have a lot of information on completing your restoration, from upholster, to engine detailing, to wiring and more.
      However we try to keep most of our restoration videos applicable to almost any year, make and model of car.
      Having owned a couple MGB’s myself I know you’ll find information that will help you!
      Of course, on any car you’ll likely run into those moments when you’ll need specific information as it relates to your car we’re more than happy to offer you advice for those moments as well.
      Also, most enthusiasts run into those times when a car has been apart long enough that you simply look at the parts and scratch your head and say where does that go.
      For those times I strongly recommend a factory shop manual or assembly manual…. often the best tool in the shop.

      If you have any other concerns, please contact us at 1-855-706-3534, or chat with us on our site.

      We greatly appreciate your business!

      Sincerely,
