Hi, hope that you and your dad are well.

 

Hi 

 

Thank you for asking really appreciate that, we’re good thanks;). Hope you’re well also in these tricky times and coping. 
 

The pandemic has stopped us at the moment from progress on the mini because the car is in my dads garage, dad is just about to turn 80 and my mam has just finished cancer treatments so it’s too risky being close to them. Hopefully things will change in the not to distant future. 
 

In the meantime I have a 205 Gti that I’m building into a track car in my garage at home, so I’ll do a bit on that and maybe do a couple of videos on YouTube for it. I’ve just finished making a trolley for it so I’ll do a video of that first. 
 

Take care.

Hi, glad that your mum & dad are well.
Your 205 looks interesting, I’m pretty sure that you had the engine the “wrong by way around”, are you going rear wheel drive with it?

I Just have a little update or bit of entertainment I wanted to share with you on the jig we made for our Classic mini Mk1 build, not sure if you may have seen our rotisserie jig build for the mini but here it a little 8 minutes time lapse of it being made.

Hello everyone, 

I hope you’re all coping well.


It’s has been quite a while since the last Classic Mini Mk1 Conversion update, but I’m happy to say we’re back on it again, taking care with the social distances rules and being very careful. We’re really excited and looking forward to getting back to it in full swing, but for now here’s it a little update on where it is right now and the next steps.

Evening veryone

 

We have another update on our Classic Mini Mk1 Conversion, a bit of a strip down ready for new panels. So in this episode we get all the spot welds drilled out and the second inner wing all carefully removed. Also a little bit of repair work on the rear panel.
