funny .. you said you've driven your car once, on the way home... I haven't driven mine at all, even though it has MOT to Sept-18 and insurance is £106 a year.. i had it in bits within a couple of days.. Yours is looking amazing and the paint shop work is top work! 

 

Have you got a time line for getting it back on the road?

Cheers 👍🏻

It was never my intention to do a full rebuild on this as I thought Id got a good one to start with but you start digging on a mini and ....... well you know the rest 😆

Id like it finished before April as it would be nice to take it to the pride of Longbridge event
I always go being an ex employee and all that but Im into my fifth year with this car so Im way past any deadlines I ever set myself lol 😂

Looks really nice in the flesh really happy with it
It will need a mop and polish but that will be done when its put back together

Now the fun really begins 😁

Small update

Cars still at the body shop as Im making room for it so I picked up the doors boot lid and bonnet
made a start on the boot lid and doors
Number plate light unit and boot handle fitted new lenses and bulbs 👍🏻

AED49ECF-CCFB-4C5B-8F1D-65B602FCA07F_zps

4D5791AE-6EE9-4697-83DC-F2E1953EBF51_zps

New gaskets on the hinges

7BF4AB92-244C-4D37-9D33-88E0D641EA11_zps

This is a double skin boot lid so Ive used grommets on the holes

BEE9F247-5498-4957-A9E9-70E546F89201_zps

New gaskets on the door handles surprising how many people dont fit these 🤔

6D58D88A-B833-47C0-A844-A548FFBB632E_zps

Started to build the doors up handles and locks are in Ive ordered new Door glass but that will take a week or so to come as mini spares Birmingham are out of stock 🙁

Photobucket is having a wobbler so cant upload any more pics 🤬 try again tomorrow

Lock mechanism

6F23BDE8-CDF2-4391-98A0-D11B6376E440_zps

Bit fiddly but straightforward

Both secured with these link clips easily lost as I found out and spent ages looking for the dam things 😂

72B069BF-A353-4D16-B558-DBC727DFBE5B_zps

Then just feed it into the door and screw it into place

74741518-D6A6-4A1F-AC32-19D3D4BEB789_zps

Dont forget to clip the door lock to the lock mech you can just see it in this pic

A823AFDB-7C57-49A2-AB30-7F0FD28C1E87_zps

Couldnt resist fitting the badge to the bonnet

044D832E-33DC-4FDB-AE47-36333867AAA4_zps

Ive checked everything works correctly and fitted the grab handle and door opener temporarily

D9911781-843F-4DD4-BC4F-E39402462680_zps

Glass is on order but I will be fitting that after Ive hung the doors

Safely wrapped up
