I have done about 850 miles (it is my weekend toy) since the rear subframe rebuild and the alternator bracket were done and it has been an epic 850 or so miles! It only goes out in the dry and is in a dehumidified garage.


Spec is:
Current MOT / Historic Registered Tax so it is free
Micra Allspeed conversion Frame New from Allspeed
1.3 Micra engine (On the log book)
Fusion Fabrication Manifold
4 branch Tubular
Large core rad electric fan comes on from the ECU
Pipercross Airfilter
Mini Centre Speedo (This doesn't work, fuel gauge does though)
Smiths oil and Temperature Gauges ( Both are plumbed and work fine)
5 speed gearbox.
Completely removable front
Minisport 4 pot calipers and discs (Plenty of life!)
Mini ultralite wheels with Yoko 048r tyres
Hilos all round
Brand New KYB Gas-Adjust Suspension
Red dot cones on front and standard Moulton cones on the rear. ( front are new old stock/ Rear brand new)
4 branch manifold/ Maniflow centre exhaust.
Roll Cage/Bucket seats
Bosch High pressure fuel pump. (New)
Fibreglass Mk1 bootlid with mk1 handle.
Aluminium fuel tank takes about 30-35 Litres plus a 2litre aluminium catch can so no fuel surging.
Brand new Halfords battery starts on the button!
Minispares rose jointed adjustable camber arms
Adjustable castor arms
Rose jointed steering arms
Standard camber/castor brackets on the rear
Braided brake lines all round
Rear Subframe has just been blasted and powder coated.
New/Refurbished Rear arms from the East Anglia Mini Centre. Timkin bearings on the rear.


Spares:
Original style bootlid in excellent condition
Spare brand new 4 pot minisport 7.5" Calipers (damage to one caliper where the hose fits)
Spare micra injector rail/ht leads and other bits.
Original steering arms.
Can have the coilovers that came off if you like and the springs but they are a little rough.
Spare wheel bearings (Not timken)

Bad Bits:
The loom could do with a freshen up. It all works perfect but doesn't look the best.
I have made a catch can I need to fit as the vapour pipes from the engine do not go into the manifold so they can come through the bulkhead and smell a little.
It can be noisey on the inside due to no sound deading.
The cold start is not plumbed into the water system so when starting on a cold day it takes a few revs for a minute or two just to let it warm then it will idle fine (You cannot even hear it sometimes) You can cure this by running the idle a little higher, upto you.
It does not have a rev counter but I can show where one can go.
The car is not a minter but certainly solid! It turns heads everywhere it goes and is great fun!

Test drives/viewings will be on DRY DAYS ONLY!A little hard at the moment but im I'm sure we will manage.

Check out my build thread for the history of the car. As well as any pictures.

I'm looking for around £4000 ovno.

***It also comes with a stormforce tailored car cover, one clip broken but nothing a sewing machine would not fix. I used it to protect it from dust***

Bad Bits:

Got to put a breather from the fuel tank to outside as smell can come through, literally just a pipe as the breather is there and hole is in the floor.

Test drives/viewings will be on DRY DAYS ONLY!A little hard at the moment but im I'm sure we will manage. I'm not available this coming weekend but I am just putting it out there.
