Thought it is good time to start my own thread here now after a long time lurking. First though a big thanks to all the posters on here, peoples experience and knowledge sharing is awesome and helped a lot even at this early stage.
little about me before the project. this will be my second mini but been 20 years since my first and then i didnt do anything like this, just small fixes.
i have never taken on a project and i do not know how to do any body work. I have a little advantage in that i'm a industrial mechanic by trade so i'm comfortable with the undertaking. I do travel with work for over 200 days each year so this is a minimum of a 5 year project. its a hobby so there is no time restraints. and to a level want to spend enough on the car to make sure i have a good example for the future.
So this is my Mini, 98 Rover 1.3 MPI. I bought it blind (big mistake) from Northern Norway and had it transported down to Bergen, i drove it home for 30 km where death was only another corner away.
The idea was a project and i was told that only a little bit of fixing was required, new wings and few of the usual bits, lets just say that what I was told was pretty much a outright lie. But never mind that, it will just keep me busier for longer.
