I assume you're talking about a Midget here.  I had exactly this problem
when I fitted a new exhaust system and manifold.  I think I managed to get
in there by taking the carbs off or something.  Or maybe I only thought about
it but never got round to doing it !!!  

Should I check tonight ?  Will my car explode if these two nuts aren't there.

It's been over a year since I put the manifold on, so if I did forget to
tighten them (which I'm beginning to beleive I did now I've been thinking for
a few minutes) they'll be gone now.  Maybe that could explain the growly 
exhaust sound that my wife so admires since I fitted the new exhaust.

I'm sure that taking off the carbs would let you get in.  But hey don't listen
to me 'cause I probably forgot.
