Little about me.
I've been a member on here for years and had a previous z cars (GSXR 1000) project i completed nearly 10 years ago !!!! Time flys hey.i was 21 when I finished the z car was a 3 year build if I can remember correctly.
I have been through over 6 minis in my time .
From bike engine conversions to standard 998cc to 1275s and even a metro turbo.
Even my other half had a mini 35 Ltd edition till we moved house .
We moved house from Oxfordshire in September 2017 From my small little garage I built all my minis in to where I live now in Cornwall where my man cave has grown somewhat as your see from the pics ...

Wish I never sold it but had to grow up and buy a house yada yada yada.
I convinced myself I wouldn't ever do it again and buy a mini and spend hours in the garage.
Last year I purchased a toy for myself..
Audi rs4 avant 480bhp

But then I ended up going out in a mates mini with a Vauxhall engine in it and thought my #$%$ #$%# ! I need one of these again in my life. The buzz and the bum clenching acceleration in a biscuit tin going along at 50mph compared to my rs4 which cruises at 100mph while sipping a Costa is incomparable.
I bought myself one of these.... as said before I've had lots of saloons and fancied something different.

And it's now situated in it's new home where I've started the project. (Bit bigger than my old single garage where I couldn't open the doors...

I work a strange pattern at work doing what I do for a living so hopefully I'll update every 4 to 5 days .if the wife lets me play. I have a 1 year old little girl now as well to attend to compared to when I had all the time in the world when building my z car.
Hope to have feedback and help along the way. As I did when I was building my z car 10 years ago on this forum..
