Got some Cibie Super Oscars and in the Shed from Back in the day as well as some Hella 3000's but I'll probably use some cheap Lucas 20/20 copys for now.

 

I usually rewire the lights through Relays so that the Dipped beam stays on at the same time as the main beam. which gives a bit more light. Or to put it another way the dip switch only switches the head Lights off as the Dipped beam remains on in Both positions.. 

 

Spots are wired to main beam through a switch but go off as usual when dipped and can be Isolated via the switch for Black Spots etc..

Did some more on the Wing seams and O/S Floor today... As the lines are going inside I've removed the battery cable channel as well.

I've used S/H winds for now as they'll probably take a knock or two. I've sealed all the seams in the joins as well

Quite a bit of progress on the Minbin, there's only one way to get an old Mini shell straight and that's the hard way.......Mini161215%20011_zpsq5jtsqvh.jpg
