Need to know what its worth, I am undecided but will probably be selling it pretty soon due to illness.

1275cc Engine with a Stage One kit... strangely this engine has more torque and power than the 91 Cooper engine...

The Mini was deseamed except roof seam in 2006. It was given a complete rebuild and respray in 2008.

MOT & TAX until July 2010.

(All work was carried out to an extremely high standard, it was built by my Dad and I, for an example of his other work you might have seen the Snowberry White Mk2 Mini which has won over 40 First Class prizes since 2003.)

Winner of "Most Innovative Mini" at Bristol Mini Day 2007 and 2008.
-Rear wiper
-Metro Door handles
-Speaker pods built into arches so you DONT lose leg room
-Internal fuel filler to keep "smooth" look
-Smooth bootlid

Good points...

Nicely presented modified car.

Bad Points..

Deseamed,
Changed from a 998 to 1275
Non-Standard.

Finger in the air value, 2 -3k assuming it has a reasonable amount of T&T.

Do like the door handle conversion, the SA and I think Australian Mini's had similar door handles...

Looks like a lovely mini. As said around the 2-3k mark. How did you do the metro door handle conversion. I would love to do that to mine.

When I did the conversion it was easier to cut the whole door of the metro about an inch all around the handle and weld that onto the Mini door, that way you already have the perfect shape and cut out for the handle. One of the picture's above shows the lock hole and the recessed handle area. It was then a case of getting a small bit of metal, twisting and shaping it etc so that it would link up properly between the Metro and Mini mechanism. I don't have the pictures on this PC but I can send some over if you want?

That would be great thanks. I'm putting new door skins on in the new year so may do this at the same time. Do you want me to PM you my email address.

you could probably get 3k+ for that. some cars on ebay go for silly money

depends if you can find 2 people that want it, and prepared to wait for sale. it would probably fly between 2-3k (must be top end of this anywya)

Wasn't too bad really, cut the ridge, joggled the edges and strengthened using fibreglass.

To the people who sent messages about the Metro door handles, I will try and do a post about them in the new year as a Tech info bit or something, various health + DVLA + Computer + Xmas issues going on!
