So after our family mini failing its MOT 5 years ago due to the dreaded rust disease , 2 children being born and me telling myself numerous times I would get her back on the road I have finally decided to give it a go.
This is not only my wife's first car but her first mini too so it has lots of sentimental value. She used it as a daily driver up until the MOT failure.
I have owned an MPI mini when I was younger and did lots to it except any body work. This is where I will most likely need help from you lovely people please!
I pushed the mini on to the drive last summer and have just got the garage to a place where I feel comfortable taking this project on. I will be finally pushing back it in to the garage on Wednesday night for the big reveal and to start work. I cant wait!!
My plan is to do as much work in the evenings and weekends but it may be slow going due to family commitments.
I honestly have no timescale planned but my intention is to get the car back on the road and driving. I guess I will have to wait and see what I find over the coming weeks.
I am a complete novice so if anyone see's me doing anything daft or has any advice they can give I would very much appreciate it.
