It was weird because the passenger side head light trim was in perfect condition.   But there was no panel on the vehicle to use as a starting point.   Very sad.

Can anyone tell me what the minimum height the mini shell has to be off the ground from level in order to get full rotation when on a rotisserie. I'm about to start to build one and I have limited height in which to work on my mini. I have about 1.8m in height in my work space

I don't know of the top of m head, but I'd say measure from the center to the corner of the roof (at 90deg to the center line) which should give you the minumim.

 

When Mine was on the spit the floor was probably 30cm off the ground?

Q

What have people done for an aerial? I am thinking about filing in the hole on the passenger side guard. Plus what rebushing kit do you use to rebush the boot lid hinges? Are they the same as the door pin kit for the mk1 minis?

I’ve managed to pick up a Cooper S airbox recently. Does anyone have a picture of a surf blue Cooper S engine bay so I can see what it looks like? Despite my internet searches I can’t find any pictures.
