Once again thanks for the interest! have been looking round in other places,
and I have not found another build of a Coachbuilt mini, their are a couple on
the Mk1 forum but they haven't been updated for a while if anybody knows
of any could they point me in there direction please.
Anything I have seen they have been Radfords or Wood&Pickets!
So on with the story,
Got the dash finished and fitted, five coats of brushing varnish rubbed down
between coats and then a couple of coats of poly urethane spray varnish over
the top, really pleased with the result.
got it back up on stands and removed the wheels again need to get tyres of and
paint the wheels, decided as its at a good height for working to give it a quick run
over with polishing machine then a wax with Simonize yellow hard wax, used to be
preferred wax back in the day! spent many hours over the years cutting and polishing
Rolls Royces and Bentleys, most of the old chauffeurs carried a tin in the glovebox I
know there are lots of others on the market but old habits die hard,
other bits fitted inc the rear wiper, and made and fitted rear moulding below window used
modified pin moulding from Woolies with the pins removed and replaced with stainless screws
need to take wiper back of as stripped the already damaged thread on wheel box.
Then came across a problem when I bought the car it had non opening rear windows fitted and
a pair of opening windows in a box which i put in the loft and forgot about them went to fit them
this week and they are blue tints so no good, now the search is on for replacements.
More to follow
