I think we've all swept our minis up at some point, full boot floor isn't too hard to do

Good luck, Marc, you will find all the bodges of every previous owner, but keep chipping through.

 

I hate doing the boot repair panels  :goaway:

Yeah the over sill issue is nothing I am not used to sorting out, but its eaten the floor far worse than I have every seen and really don't want a patch work car, so full floor its the ticket, regarding the boot floor that is already here for the same reason, this car means a lot to us so want it to right as we never intend to sell..

Some slow progress while we save for panels.

 

cut this out the old floor and cleaned it up and Zinc primed it ready to go back in when the time comes.

We also have braced the car ready for its new floor, and added some floor locators to help with fitment.

Also on our recent travels we found this for a good price, a brand new Mk2 boot lid, which is the look we are hoping to end up with.

So began to cut the area out trying to watch out for the wiring loom and ended up nicking it. ffs! That will get repaired by my Mrs (Gary's owner)

I am also undergoing a restoration of a mini for my partner, so will follow this thread to get pointers and to watch progress as said by yeti above it’s nice to watch a restoration thread through the stages to the final article.

Like the bracing idea also so will be copying that idea I reckon as got 2 halves of the floor to do aswell as a poets steps etc

Thanks I hope that our thread can be of some help. Do you have a thread of your Partners mini that your doing?

The bracing is actually a mix of some ideas off here, it seemed to work very well for them so hope it will work the same for us as well the want to cut for floor out is massive but plan to sort the door steps and A posts out before all that can happen so the floor has a solid base to weld to..

Yes it’s always useful looking at others threads for ideas etc or just as a reference and I hope that likewise mine may help someone else out in the future. I’m going to tackle the toebord aswell so the floor has a good base all round.

How are you tackling your floor I’ve opted for two halves.

Yes it defiantly is helpful.

 

No we are going for a full complete heritage floor one big bit, this mini has so many issues with the heel board over sills etc we just want it all nice and square again so that's the plan.
