Was hoping to save some of the brake line parts but looks like I'll be putting in another big minisport order tonight.

Didn't get as much done as I had hoped for! I suppose if everything was straight forward then I wouldn't have anything to talk about!
Subframe disassembled, cleaned and hammerited
Hubs stripped down
Top arms stripped down
Cannot get the bearing out of the top arm spindle ends. Anybody used a special tool or have any advice? I'm glad I don't have a swear jar as if I did otherwise after today I would be losing the house!

Bought gaz coilover conversion and new top arms. We all like a picture so here is my fresh looking front subby!

Now I have recovered financially from he new house been working on the mini last few months.
Found somebody had done a bodge repair on the rear su by so had to buy a new one along with a load of other gubbins.
Wanted to get serious so first investment was a roll-over jig. Haven't welded yet but can already tell it was a wise investment!

Good place to start underneath
That's what I did
My welding got better as I went along

Thread Revival Part two!
Its been a while, with the passing of my grandmothers within a 4 week period in the first half of last year the mini has not been a priority. In Brighter News I'm getting married to my fiancé in August and plan to turn up in the mini, so I have a date to hit!
Welding with the exception of the rear valance, small plate in passenger pan and outer seal is done. Unfortunately the high winds led to the detachment of the temporary shelters roof which is now covered in Tarp (wont last long). Need to get the sub frames on and rolled into its permanent home.
I know my welding wont win any beauty contests but it will hold up. I havn't put pictures of everything up as would be here forever! :)
