My name is Paul and I have recently bought my third Mini. The first was a 1978 Clubman 1100 that I made from two when I was at Uni in the early 90s. The second was a Mini 30 in black. Loved them both and drove all over the UK with them.

16 years ago I moved to Australia and have finally bought another Mini - A Morris Mini K1100.

Cheers, Paul

I believe opal fruit green is now starburst green.
Not sure what the shade is, nearest looks to be Tamarisk but i’m not 100%. Either way it’s had a respray - was originally crystal white.

Thanks for the comments. Unfortunately I cannot take any credit for it’s appearance - the previous owner had done a decent job of tidying it up but I have a long list of tasks ahead of me including disc brake conversion, install heater, replace windscreen and backlight seals. Good projects for the kids to help me with.
Most important right now is to raise the suspension so that it can get over the speed bumps In the car park at work without dragging the exhaust.

It will be me daily driver so all being well It will be a regular site around Melbourne.
