Haven't been active for years and have had a '69 registered mini in my garage, off the road for 10 years. I'm looking for a reputable company that will take on the restoration work for my car. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated

If you are in the South of England Ben at Mill Road Garage work is first class. Look at some of his threads on here (he is currently doing a MK2 Cooper S) With someone like that you know the bits you don't see are every bit as good as the bits you can.

If you are prepared to send it to the UK, we can restore it at Somerford Mini, we have quite a few customers from Europe and further a field.

Alex as an aside to this if you are going to promote the company you work for like this then you will need to register as a trader.

Well spotted, wouldn't use somerford for a restoration anyway if they can't supply the clubman sidelight unit which won't leak! And yes we have tried calling but we left even more confused lol
