I NEED to work on a car. Badly. The Mini is far from my house. What do I do then?

Oh, why not this then?

It seems a bit too high, isn't it? Let's start

Let's give it about 1/2" ground clearance, should be enough

I don't want a spyder, so the roof must return, but 3 inches lower

Much better now?

I cut the rear arches so the wheel are more tucked in.

While the front wheels were being lowered, the single door lost it's ability to open. Bugger... what do we do?

 

Lambo door!!!!!

 

Funky self-modified hinge

I had to rellocate the A-pillars for the door

Well it doesn't turn anymore, so I guess it's a drag racing car now

I added a plate so that the door falls into the right place each time. And a stopper up front to stop it from falling.
