I should be nearing the end of my restoration by now. But I have seriously had enough.
I am fed up of new parts that don't fit properly
Simple but tricky things that I seem to find near impossible (perhaps its just me)
Running out of cash
Not having enough time to commit to it
Thinking I don't have the skills to finish it
Worry that I've missed something major and when I'm back on the road it will be a death trap
Its not supposed to be like this. I used to enjoy working on the Mini but now its just become stressful and a chore. I know deep down that I will never finish it.
So I am feeling now that my two options are:
* Get a restoration company to finish it off
* Sell it as a project for someone else to finish off
Bodywork and paintwork is all complete (although has 2 scratches caused by myself). Suspension is mostly complete and fitted. I have all the interior, windows, seals etc. I have accumulated most of the parts needed. Interior is all present and just needs fitting (seats need to be recovered but I have the period correct seat covers, wiring is fitted, needs engine fitting which needs some work on the clutch and differential.
Has anyone else on here found themselves in this position before when restoring?
