Big progress then, getting it actually in the car! I can't remember, are you keeping the car looking as it is?

Mine's all back together now, still doesn't seem 100% but getting there. Dev day at loughborough tomorrow so I'll give it a run up to that and see how it goes.

Want to keep it looking the same but might have to put arches on it though due to the disc upgrade.

Sorting the engine bay out was a bit of a bigger job than expected, i started to find cardboard,filler,silocon,gaffer tape repair panels held on with just the door hinge bolts etc.

So i got drastic

The plan is to use the bulkhead and floor from the cooper shell in the garage. I've a new floor extension peice, healboard, outer sills lower rear quarters the only none original join will be on the front pillers but I'll be using the inner piller skin from one car and the outer two from the other with a big overlap.

Also means its going round nose now. hoping to get it looking something along these lines

That's some extreme surgery, but an interesting way of dealing with the rot. As you're not keeping the clubman front end can I suggest that you offer the side trims for sale on the clubman estate register forum. You won't be needing them on the round nose conversion. :-)

Just basically cut what was in the way off the original subframe till it would sit in the correct place then bent the tubeing around it to suit, although I had spent many hours looking at other frames on 16v mini club to get a rough idea of frame shapes
