Small Update


Cut the front end out.  It was a bit crusty round the edges with dents all over.

As you can see I also test fitted the door to check the roof and whilst the gaps are not all equal at the moment, I think after playing around with fitment it will work fine. This means I can finish welding the roof.


I also test fitted the firewall that was in the crashed mini.  I plan to make my own, but I wanted to see how it fit to determine whether to use as template or not.  I think I will use it as template but also will modify it a bit to make it easier to gain access to engine - more on this later in the build.

Next things I plan to do is to clean up the bulkhead, finish welding the roof, and remove rear subframe to clean up all the cutting that was done.
