      OK Jeff thanks for this - I have just bought G91ABP from an Austin Rover/Mini guy in Kent. Car is complete but stored for years - it wasn't running but we have got it going now. Ordered some engine parts to make it safe to drive to see how it is. All the doors have rot but at a push could be saved, tailgate is rotten and has no lock mechanism, dashboard appears to be out of shape above the dial binnacle and has cracks. I could sort the cracks but the distortion might be tricky. I am going to restore it quite extensively and am just now looking to see what's available.

        Sounds a good project, dash is the same as a Montego and Sam is selling a dash on ebay atm with only a couple of small cracks, As for doors etc, they are becoming increasingly rare to find so you might find it easier to buy a good donor as all panels are the same. Dash link, but check first if it's what you need https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Austin-Ro...AAAOSwEJtf9cxj

          Looks like you have bought a twin of my spares donor car, sadly the doors on that are shot and the tailgate looks good on the outside but has rust issues on the inside under the window.

          I do have some spare rear doors, though, and also another tailgate in decent condition (although not from an MG so it would need to have the spoiler holes drilled accurately in it).

          Send me a PM if this is of any interest

            Thanks for the interest and assistance, much appreciated - I will review and be back when I have had more of a chance to look closely at what I've got. I wasn't aware of how rare cars and parts have become, so it is going to take a bit more time and attention to get a list and find exactly what i need. I have tried to upload a photo but it keeps crashing.

              Update - bought a good donor car - Clubman. So sorted for panels now and will have spare glass and a really good interior when I have used the parts I need. I'll post again when I know what i have left.

                I would be interested in the dashboard if it is not cracked. I am assuming it is Flint Grey if it's a Clubman.
