Hi all,
My first car was a 1969 Mk2 Mini and since then I have always loved classic Minis.
So after over 25 years of non Mini ownership, I have just purchased a 1963 Mk1 barn find project, to do as a hobby with my 14 year old son, and hopefully bring another old classic Mini back to life.
Not sure quite what I have let myself in for, so any help would be much appreciated, as I am sure I will need some help and tips.
Cheers,
Mick

Welcome to the forum you'll have to put some pictures up. One of the best bits of advice I can give you is to subscribe to the forum and become a TMF+ member. It only costs £5 and one of the benefits is you'll be able to get discounts from suppliers including 7.5% off MiniSpares. More importantly it also supports the forum as well.

The only way to get it is to pm Simon on this forum and he'll check you are eligible. There's a sticky on it.

You need to set up an account in imgur.
