Wonders will never cease, after life taking over I have wheeled the MK3 out of the barn for the first time in 6 years!!!

 

Pumped up 3 flat tyres and in rolled out freely

 

Even better, having sat around with brake pedal going to the floor since the front caliper rebuilt in 2012, I have sorted it . With the use of a professional brake bleeder I now have a decent pedal.

 

Next job = buy a battery and fire her up.

 

Now - distant thoughts of MITP !!!!

 

You never know.

 

Enjoy the dusty barn find shots

Always loved the Mk3 "S". Wonderful understated looking car that just gives a hint that it's not a normal Mini  :D

That is a lovely car! Looks so original! Is this a standard mk3 or a mk3 S?
