Awesome man! i cant wait to get going, i have already striped most interior, cant decide what to do with the switches though aha! sound proofed all the floor so far, as the spongy stuff aint that great to be honest. Flashing tape for the win!

ahaha well that would be telling ahaha

ill make a build thread tonight hopefully, but i cant at the moment as im at work. and i have no pictures handy apart from the ones above :(
BUT!!!!!!!! its going to be a good one :)

(some of which i have ordered stuff for) my list for this weekend is sorting out/fixing/tidying up this lot:

idicators/hazards (no on/off)
Grinding sound (i think its something to do with the transmission as it moves quite a bit)
Vibrate sound (I think something is vibrating on the bulkhead)
Bonnet vibrating sound
possibly exhaust rattling on some, maybe an undone bracket. maybe the one that attached from the manifold to the the transmission box as it is maniflow and they come with them.
source a metal plate for behind speedo
knocking sound passenger side rear (possibly something to with bushes or subfram)
gear stick gator (for massive hole where it was cut for the rod gear lever)
hi-lows heightened at the back
possibly soften suspension
sort fuel leak at fuel pump (as on the way back after i bought it around 12am on the motorway it popped out and could of caused a fire :nuke: )
make the detatchable lights, permentant.
grease the niples ;D aha!
sort out electrics (maybe re-wire somestuff, like the amp speakers etc.)
get a big fuse holder, so there is one big one for everything, so its nice and neat :)
fit a dashboard for the time being so i can fit black panel on the bulkhead so i can do some sound proofing (make sure the air vents are properly blocked up at the same time)
finish sound proofing everything
sound proofing behind dashboard

and finally give it a good clean!!!!!!!!!!

thats some stuff im doing this weekend, some of which are sorted as soon as i get my order in. But thats what i can fit in this weekend hopefully :lol:

Looks good. I don't like satin paint, but it looks alright on your mini.
