Got hold of an 88 Mayfair in 2004 and have been steadily (read slowly) working on the project since then.
Will attach lots of images as I've tried to catalogue whats been going on - have put it out for public viewing now because the car has been at Mintec in Devon since last August and, having taken it apart, they're going to put it back together - brilliant bunch of guys down there.
Want to gauge opinion on all the decisions we've made to see if we can do it better so please post any suggestions.
Aim is somehting like Aric's car on here - also like Stuart Wright, Peter Hills and Stefan Brash's Minis - they've all been in the mags.
Rough idea of spec. as follows:
R1 5JJ motor in modified Pro-Motive Frame with Quaife LSD
Lightened as far as practicable - GRP panels/perspex throughout
Full welded cage - lots of swaged reinforcement
Re-sited alloy tank
Bespoke suspension front and back
Force Racing 10 x 7' wheels (actually 8' to the outer lip - amazing bits if kit)
Hopefully the programme is looking like an early 2011 completion but as we all know anything can happen and such cars/projects usually take the hit in the event of the girlfriend deciding she wants a new bag... wish me luck.
