Bought this a few weeks ago for £150. Quite a good shell with very little welding needed.

Wings are dented so new wings and a panels fitted so far.

My mate has borrowed my spit so risky work 

No over sills either and all the floor looks good after a wire brush

 

Plan is MK1 styling rear lights bonnet boot dash no arches etc

Excellent work mate and what a bargain. Really like the style direction your taking into making the mini your own.

Cheers trying to do some things a little different.
No updates really this weekend due to attended shows.

Bought a full wiring loom for £10
Bought a set of drop s/c gears

Should be ready from primer soon but might start building the subframes 1st
