The Mini was sent to the painter on wednesday 16-07-2014.

After the blocking we gave the bare/thin parts a fresh coat of primer.

Both subframes returned from sand blasting and powder coating. Like new!

Also the (visible) screws from the boot hinges where not forgotten. (It's all in the details!)

And ofcourse the door hinges.

Today the roof of the body was still being sprayed black (Colour Black BK1) and tomorrow the paint is done! :D

I think he's pretty happy about a job well done...

He even stopped on the way back to take some more photo's!

Thanks guy's!

 

I thought 'red mini's' where a no go in England, but it seems to still have some fans :lol:

 

Those outside photo's really show what a dark red it is.

With the Mini's curves and reflections it's showing off different colours from any angle.

 

Can't wait to bolt on some shiny new chrome on it!

Way overdue update!

Sadly not much progress so far. My coach builder has been very busy and I have been working for 1,5 years in a very undermanned position.

Because of this I had no energy left to do anything myself nor complain to my coach builder for the lack of progress.

Found a new job a few months ago so all is better now.

Anyway: The build up has finally started!

Jeroen Klomp from 7Heaven already dressed up my poor bare Mine with some gear he had laying around.

The roof rack is mine though, sand blasted and powder coated.
I don't have any front seats yet so it was nice to see some options.
He tried to convince me but the roll cage isn't going in!

20150501-e1431947879330.jpeg

The assembled sub frame on the picture below isn't mine. Mine wasn't ready at the time.

20150502.jpg

The wheels aren't connected but the help to make it look like a Mini again.

20150503.jpg

Sand blasted and powder coated front sub frame build op build up with new rubber cones.
Top arms and hubs sand blasted and spray painted.
Lower arms, tie rods and Hilo's are all new for the perfect setup.

20150504.jpeg

 

20150505.jpeg

 

20150506.jpeg

Sand blasted and powder coated rear sub frame also build up with new rubber cones.
Radius arms refurbished, sand blasted and spray painted.
The radius arms have been made adjustable and again Hilo's are placed.

New brake back plates, brake cylinders and brake shoes complete it.
