Going to finally say hello an introduce myself, I'm Nick, I registered on the forum back in 2013 when i bought my first Mini Project car that never took off.
I acquired a 1990 Rover mini shell at the end of last year with the intention of replacing all the rust and rot myself, which there is an awful lot off. The big dream is to build a B series VTEC mini for use on track and at weekends through the summer months. As with all projects this is a big dream from the starting point that i am at, but hopefully i can get there.
For anyone who's interested here's a list of my previous cars, with the DC5 type R by far the best car i've owned .
1998 Peugeot 106 GTI
1998 Peugeot 106 S2 Rallye
2006 Ford Fiesta ST
2013 Vauxhall Corsa VXR Nurburgring Edtion
2014 Toyota GT86
2001 Honda Integra DC5 Type R
Currently the Mini is the only "car" I own as i'm now married so we bought my wife a larger car to ferry ourselves and the dogs around in! so the itch to get cracking and buy some panels and get the welder out is strong, and for once the wife is keen for me to get on build this car
