Hey everyone, this is my first car restoration so expect a lot of newbie questions in this thread.
My dad was looking on ebay for mini parts and came across this mk2. It didn't look to bad, was local (within 1 hour drive) and was reasonably priced. I decided to bid on it and won it on Friday and collected it Saturday morning, 1st of February. The guy who was selling it, Mick was a genuinely nice guy and really sad to see it go. He bought it 13 years ago, drove it for 2 years and then left it in his garage for the last 11 years. He did intend on restoring it himself but due to certain circumstances, he doesn't have the time or space to do it. If my memory serves me right, its only had 2 or 3 owners too. I'd have to check.
The car is complete, original engine, it does have a bonnet and glass. He also gave me a tonne of new old spares. I'll share some more images later
