Hi everyone, ive recently brought a mini 30 for a project car and have strippped it down ready for some body work. The rear quarter is rusty at the back window cill (can poke fingers through it in places) is there advice or photos on how i go about removing the whole panel ready for a new one? also wondered what mark panels i would need for any replacements like i say its a 30 which was built in 1989 and based on the mayfair?

thanks

Welcome. Yes, the mini 30 is based on the Mayfair. What colour is your car? :shades:

Have a look at the Project Paddy link in my signature. You will see everything you will probably need there.

Most of the panels from MK3 onwards are the same. Yours will be a MK4. Front wings on the round nose cars differ on the later models.
