Quick overview,

 

bought this mini three year ago, spent alot of money on it over the last year getting it finished.

 

Its had:

 

Bare metal respray

Two new sub frames

Full minisport adjustable suspension kit

Full stage one kit

rebuilt 998 engine with minisport fastroad cam

new interior 

new alloys (ultralites 6x10)

Cooper S brakes

Custom billet pulleys (anodized red made by CDF racing, if anyone interested let me know i can get more.)

Bill Richards racing suspension and engine set up 

And much more.

 

i will try to add some of the photo's of the car when i bought it, to show what a mess it was.

These are group two minisport arches, i would say get 5x10 wheels instead of the 6x10 i have because they do stick out quite abit even though i haven't got any spacers or anything.

thinking of supercharging my 998 what do people think? the spec is as follow at the moment, stage one and mini-sport fast road cam probably getting around 35-40bhp and i want around 65-70 but still a 998 and not too many engine mods, i dont mind having head work and bits but no over boring or anything like that

Back out of storage for brands hatch this year, two rust bubbles have appeared being fixed in may. Ales have a clutch/engine issue that's being fixed as well.

The plans are to remove back seats completely, good clean, new dash board, engine bay electrics need tidying.
