I did mine with common shop tools - wrenches, screwdrivers, hammers,
pliers, etc.  I ended up buying a tap and die set during the project and
I already had common auto diagnostic and tune up equipment.   Any
welding got done by others.  If you start with a 77 - 80 model MGB,
there is almost no welding needed.  The 74 1/2 to 76 needs a bit. 
Earlier cars require a bunch, and I wouldn't have been able to do it
