Just seen a mini shell pop up on ebay near me. In the advert it says "vin number and v5c can be provided at extra cost". Makes you wonder why it's an extra cost as surely the shell should have a vin number attached to it. Reported.

    Report them to VOSA/DVSA. The vin it part of the body and should never be seperated. Owner can keep the V5/registration as you can apply to DVSA for a new one if you have the vin

    I agree about A series. For now I'm putting in a 1275 stage one.

What grommet can I use for the door wiring? Someone mentioned using MK1 or MK2 Golf door grommets recently but I can't find that mention now

    I got mine on Ebay from someone who was breaking a metro. I just asked if they still had them and they did.

I need to turn my mini on to its roof, I have it on its side on a mattress at the moment, could I turn it on to its roof or is this not a good idea. Any advice would be great

    Don’t put it on the roof you will crease it and it won’t go straight again.
    I’ve always tipped shells on their sides.
    Use a strip of carpet to rest the bottom seam on.
    Then a large wooden beam also covered in carpet to rest the gutter on.
    Beam about 7” x 4” 5 to 6 feet long.
    This rest the shell on strong points without distorting it. The rear quarter is then suspended off the floor.
    Built 3 race cars and 2 road cars this way. Easy and cheap.
    Mending and Pai...
