Hi. My name is Alasdair. I've been a mini fan all my life. My dad did a lot of rally driving in the 70s, all in Mini Coopers, and my first car was an MG Metro engined Mini built in my dads workshop. Around 4 years ago my dad bought a 1990 Cooper SE as a retirement project. Unfortunately he died, suddenly before completing the build. I decided to take the project, and to build, and drive his dream, in his memory. Hope you enjoy the photos below, and I hope to be a valuable contributer to the forum. Thanks, and best wishes to all.

Welcome! Judging by the refurb looks like you've got a quality little car that is Great way to keep a memory of him going.

Great action shot too.

Hopefully you will find all the info needed to keep you motoring along.
