I got this mini from a friend about a year ago with the idea of using it as a donor for my z cars vtec project. I since then I have extended my garage to 30ft to give me room for the projects but have now decided just to do a standard restoration to the mini city and go all new parts for the z cars build.
This thread is going to be solely about my restoration etc. so this is the mini. One lady owner from new with 27k miles on the clock, then bought by her mechanics (my mate) who was going to restore it but ended up sat on the drive for 5 years until I took it off his hands.
So let's get started I guess.
