Now I started to buy bits :grin:

I had also taken out all the windows and re-fitted the front subframe by now.

But first attempt at buying some seats proved to be a bit wrong :lol:

I got some Cobra Imola GTs! I was really pleased with them until I discovered that they are wide enough to be really comfortable for me but too wide to fit the mini :lol:

So after that little erm... mistake I ordered some Cobra Monacos as I know they'll fit.

So next it was time to try my hand at fibre glass repair (with the help of my mate Pete) I'd never done it before but am quite pleased at the results.

This is the front corner that had a touch of damage when I bought the shell.
