I started work on a 1985 mini for my first car last year. I am 16 at the moment and hope to finish the project before my 17th birthday in August 2018. I am doing all the work myself including bodywork and paint. I've already ran into a few problems and thought this would be the ideal place for me to share progress on the project but to also ask for help on any future problems I encounter. Here are some pictures of the car when i bought it and a few since.

Looks a good project, my first mini was a 1985 city started off red/pink and ended up as a fat and wide boy racers dream.

 

are you sticking with the fat arches ?

 No the arches have already come off but I will hopefully get some nicer miglia arches when its finished.
