Right well don't think I ever did a thread on here of my last mini build but this is the new project! Iv finally got myself a mk1 be it very very rotten, it's definitely going to need a 90-95% rebuild I'd say!
Iv decided to call her Pepa as her first digits are EPA anyway I'll let the pictures do the talking...

Well first plan will be to find some semi rigid doors so I can brace up the body there isn't excatly a lot of floor pan left! So want to try and keep it as straight as possible. Then it will be dragged into the garage and stripped down and a big big panel list made up

Hi Tom looks very similar! I'd say my floor pans are worse but least I have a doorstep kinda keeping it together where yours seems to have disappeared!, i must say they look like they are going to need pretty much the same amount of work to get on the road yours is better off in some respects as you have more original features where some of mine are missing :-( mines going to be a very slow project mainly as I'm renovating my house at the moment But hey iv always wanted an mk1 so had to start somewhere :-)
