Here's my recently purchased Mini van.

Built in 1982 and restored a few years ago by the previous owner and fitted with a few upgrades including an MG Metro engine + gearbox,8.4" disc brakes and 12" Supalight wheels

I'll be taking it into work next week to overhaul the brakes.....failed mot.....so I'll take some pictures.Emissions were running at 9% too!Supposed to have been rolling road tuned,maybe someone altered it afterwards.Down to 2.5% now and running smoother.
Managed to source some mirrors, I can now see to reverse :)
Also had to replace the ignition barrel,key kept getting stuck in.
