Hi I have a new project it's a 1984 mini Mayfair in red it's in pritty solid condition needs a few welding patches doing and full repaint going to strip it to bare shell in the next 2 weeks. Full repaint and rebuilt before the summer next year hoping to finish it by then. Can't wait to get stuck in! Here is some pictures from when I brought it cheers

Congratulations on the great news Tom.

 

You will no doubt have little time to work on Mini's but take it from me, you won't care.

 

It's always nice to have one tucked up in the garage under construction so you can escape to it if you need to though.

 

How many Mini's have you got right now?
