Hi All.

I remember looking into a 5 day course run near Hammersmith I think it was for classic mini repairs, restoration, bodywork etc. Does that ring a bell with anyone?

If so can you let me have details.

Thanking you in advance.

I was going to do it last year but a hotel would have made it too expensive.  He was willing to travel but I couldn't get the numbers to run a course.

Thanks for coming back to me. That looks like the place, but they don’t appear to be running the 5 day course anymore.

I think if there is enough interest he will run the course.  He told me 6 to 8 attendees.

Might be just me but I think the course being offered is using the word mini to mean small or reduced not "mini" as in the greatest car in the world*

 

* sorry to VW Beetle fans - just because they were sold more in the US they won the competition IMHO not because it was the greatest car

I would take the course if it was mini specific. Even better if we could work on our own cars while learning.

Maybe the 'Mini Docs' on here should organise a weekend course somewhere mid-UK.

What would people expect to pay for such a course an what would they wish to learn?
