hey, the black mini was my brothers which im now restoring but needs reshelling, so i bought a pair of minis off this chap down the road oh and a metro for the 1275cc engine all for £600 quid oosh. my brothers mini has sat at the bottom of a wet field since 1989 so you can imagine the state its in hence the reshell lol
my lathe came out of a school only done about 500 hours and they was only allowed to turn MDF on it so its pretty mint :proud:
