Well if you're bothering doing a bare shell respray, REALLY don't go for the rat look. :)

Restore her instead.


I'm sorry to let you down, but i'm stuck with the idea now.
The only rusty body part will be the bonnet, and i'm keeping a good one just in case i fancy a change..

im doing a full resto for a ratty it still needs to be solid even though it looks like it does its pointless having a ratty that is all rusty underneath you will need to respray all the time when rust is coming through


That's exactly what i'm doing :thumbsup:

I wouldnt say that.

You have literally just got your first mini. The possibilities are endless.

I've been planning on having a mini for about 6 years, that's a lot of changed plans.

My dad showed up last sunday with a nice shiny mini for me. I have changed my mind on how to personalise that like 10 times already.

The possibilities are endless with minis. As soon as you 'decorate' it one way, you'll see another and want it that way.

I'm technically on my 4th.
But this is the first one I will drive having passed.

It's not really the same. I'm counting this 4th as my first.mIt a completely different feeling having one their to drive than having one that you will someday be able to drive. I cant say why or how. But it is.

Just saying, plans may change.
