I thought I should post some photos of my mini. It's a 1992 Cooper on a K plate. It belonged to a mate of mine who had started ripping it apart but then got bored. (He's more into vintage tractors). I made him an offer and it's now sitting on my driveway awaiting some attention.
My plan is to get it on the road as soon as possible with the intention of giving it a complete rebuild later on in life. I have yet to hear it running and I notice that it is fitted with a carb when I thought it would be SPi. Luckily I am a mechanic to trade so I intend to get the engine out and see what's needed to get it running. I was told that the Carb was PI***NG fuel out before he took it off so I'll be having a look at that first.
The bodyshell isn't in too bad shape with a few holes in the boot floor and at each inner sill (Ignore the cover sills in the photo's, I won't be fitting them!)

Hopefully I'll be able to keep you all updated as I progress if you are interested and I'm sure I'll have a few queries needing answered as I go.
