Evening everyone

We’ve been working hard on the mini, we managed to get all the metal work need to finish the b pillar done. There was quite a bit of fabrication needed to get it looking like the Mk1 Mini b pillar, I've popped the video of the work we’ve been doing bellow.

Cheers

Evening all

We’ve had a bit of time to get stuck in over the holidays to get a good chunk done on the Mini, it’s surprising how long everything takes, we spent a lot of time just tidying the area’s we were working on and trimming all the rust patches out, but it’s great seeing the shell turning into solid fresh metal.

Thanks hardtop ;-) we’ll get back onto the doors very soon.

We started on fitting the new panels we picked up from m-machine last week, here is the latest video of our progress



Few more patches needed to finish off the boot floor area and then we’ll move onto the boot hinge panel, the rear corner panels and the Mk1 conversion light panels. Lots more to be getting on with.

Cheers

Morning everyone

We’ve been working hard on the mini, we managed to get quite a good but of work done on the back of the mini, we’ve replaced the rotten rear boot lid hinge panel and the corner panels.

To keep the costs down we’ve been using the magnum hinge panel and m-machine corners, quite a bit of work goes into fitting these cheaper panels as I’m sure you’ll know, but it saves quite a good bit of money just under £200, plus as you’ll of noticed we like the challenge haha!

Here’s the next couple of episode.





The next episode will be up soon, I just need to find time to edit the footage.
Cheers

Hi Sealth72

Thanks for that and cheers for subscribing The videos get better from the first ones as you go through them, it took a bit of time practice and some better equipment to improve, and still plenty of improvements to make too.

There’s quite a bit of fabricating and make of the parts needed to convert to the Mk1 doors but it’s been a lot of fun so fare.

Hope you enjoy the videos.

Cheers

Hi everyone

The Mk1 Mini Conversion is coming along.

Thanks for thats, there was quite a bit of work in changing that B pillar, I’m not quite there with it yet, just need a little bit of work and tidying but that’ll probably come nearer the time of preparing for paint.

Hopefully going to get a start on the Mk1 rear light conversion tomorrow. Finally got round to getting the last video on finishing of the lower light panels, getting all the boot cleaned out with the wire wheel and all painted. It looks great seeing it all cleaned and painted in one colour, albeit in primer.




Cheers
Mark.

I'm enjoying watching your build.   Out of curiosity, how tall are your uprights for your rotisserie?

Hi

Thank you , the rotisserie upright are just over a meter plus there’s the hight of the wheels to add to that. At first I thought we’d made it a little too high but after using it for a while now we’ve found it to be quite a nice working hight. I did a full series on the building of it which is on our YouTube channel.

Here’s the first episode,


Cheers

You wouldn't be able to tell me what height the roof is off the ground whilst on the rotisserie?
