just signed up after looking through the site. nice.
to introduce myself:
i'm 24 have a 1977 Austin Mini 1000 (canadian spec). Took me about 1.5yrs to restore and have been driving it for about 5yrs now.
it has a metro 1300 block in it, with the head recently being skimmed, ported, flowed, and hardened valve seats installed. Just boxed my bulk head and have a 40DCOE ready to go on. Has metro 4 pot vented discs, and all adjustable suspension.
ICE cosnsits of 2 Earthquake dbx 12's powered by an earthquake 500.1 amp. Alpine head, and 5 1/4 eclipse speakers in the dash. 2 pioneer 6*9 4ways in the rear shelf, and custom fiberglass boxes which now sit where most of my back seat once did.
and much more.
look forward to contributing and learning.

now: (should be on the road mid may)
ha ha. Just have to prime and paint the engine compartment.
I fabricated a cold air intake out of tube and sheet metal to hold my heater core as I removed it, but it hit my light pod when I fitted the front back up. So looks like I have some more work!! ah. but nothing a hammer can't fix!! ha ha.

If you need any small parts taking over, I still have some room left in the suitcase.
I am staying at the Red Roof motel for the event.
