My name is Johnmar, and I live in The Netherlands.
Until 2001 I was really Mini minded, then a move of house and work made me shift priorities, but I kept our mini that my girlfriend bought new and that became our wedding car in 1997. We had a minibased trailer that might be lurking at a farm where we parked it, but life took over after the move and especially after quiting my job and starting as a self employed IT guy the backburner (where the mini was placed upon) was tweaked further down to an absolute minimum.
Still, there was this longing, and I made the desicion that enough is enough and the flame is rekindled. Sadly the mini is now in poor state, so a full bare metal restoration is what the plan is.
Panel shaping: I've always wanted to alter the mini in some extend, but in such a way that it might not be directly obvious, I'll make some custom panels. Comming September I'll travel to Cornwall to visit Geoff Moss for a week of training on the "wheeling machine" (the UK name of the "English Wheel"). Hopefully that will help me in obtaining more skills in that department
