I've recently bought myself a new (to me, obviously) Mini after selling my last project! I'm not great at finishing these projects off so I thought I would by one good to go!

Its a 1972 Morris Mini, 1275CC engine with Kent Cam and flowed head. It also came with a set of high lift rockers that the last owner removed because it was a bit too noisey, I may refit these at some point but it goes pretty well as is! It also stops just as good due to the Metro four pots.

Here are some photos!

Since getting it I've done a few very small things to it such as make my own leather fuel filler bibs, made a matching bonnet strap, fitted some indicator buzzers (didn't realize how much I rely on self cancelling indicators), fitted the Lucas headlamp covers which I lying around the garage and changed the 12v socket for a USB charging port.

I love it!
