You're lucky with the Countryman, because whilst it looks like a Morris Traveller, the Traveller's wood is actually structural, whereas the Mini's isn't.  :D  Makes replacing the wood much easier.  (We've got a 1963 Traveller)

 

It's going to look awesome when it's done; and if I can recommend using Danish Oil to finish the wood, it looks fab.

 

Some of the wood doesn't look too bad.  Are you going to get someone to make replacement wood sections, or do it yourself?  If you're doing it yourself, make sure you keep everything you take off it for reference...  :)

 

Good luck!

There has been a flat roof and pillar tops on ebay over the past few weeks for £110 and it has not been sold so watch out for the re-list.

 

I can reccoment M-machine for repair panels as they are fitting my woody like a glove.

 

Dont loose heart and keep on welding and grinding.

The roof is by far the worse bit. Everything else is just the normal stuff really. Like sills and a floor pan. Far worse cars then this have been saved thats for sure! I have seen that roof on the bay. Its only 20 mins away from my house as well.

Have a look at my pics of the floor of my flat roof woody they are like your roof but mine was the other way round to yours my floor was totaly rotten but the roof and posts are mint. 

 

Been weding mine for months now and I am about three quaters of the way through now ( Thank goodness ) and it is starting to look like a shell again.

 

Good luck.

Vic
