Hello

A white mini 850cc super here. (although i've researched the engine number and its a 998cc)

Ive had the mini for over 2 months now. Just got around to registering on here, due to being busy with knocking walls down and building doors for the stables so we could actually get the mini in. Also making a shed from scratch to move the displaced stuff (because of the mini) from inside the stables to the shed and also storing mini parts.

Will post pictures when i figure out how to. 

 

Apologies in advance for the non "mini" photos of building work. But its all related i suppose.

 

 

Thanks 

Ian

The doors was too heavy like this so we cut it in two.

Loom completely out and labelled up. Previous owner had done some work on the mini-sills, floor pans and jacking points. The last 2 owners have been in the region and been garaged since 2003.

And thats as far as ive got. The mini was originally poo brown. Ive just ordered some Deox-c rust remover, then ill probably prime the subframe before putting it away for years  :lol: 

Just waiting for Machine mart to have a VAT free weekend so i can buy some stuff.

If your metal work is as good as your wood work then I can't wait to see the finished mini !

For a minute I thought the block paving was the poshest shed base I'd seen, then I scrolled down :D

Great work space and great project.
