Hey Mini Heads i've been lurking here for a month,just joined up here is my 1275GT. Bought it Last month! 

The previous owner was a panel beater /spraypainter hes done fairly well not keen on the stripe though!

while the overall car is very good there are a few small things that let it down! these will be rectified in due time but first enjoy some photos

The dash leaves a bit to be desired. the engine had a ticking sound which turned out to be a bent exhuast valve sorting that out this week. planning to ditch the front seats for some bucket from another car at some point.

 

overall plans are just a fun cheap daily drive its a nice change from a big 4.3L V6

Welcome, nice looking clubby, the stripes not too bad at least it is black and not white which would really have stood out.

thank you! But those seats are just the standard ones with el cheapo seat covers.
The carpet on the other hand is brand spanking new its things like this I dont understand about the previous owner. Why go half way on things under the hood is quite rough too

Lenses are physically smaller but sure the hole size is the same, might just mean you'll need to do a bit of polishing around the new lights to get rid of the marks left by the bigger mk4 light units.
