'74 Mini 1000. Mods done to it are mostly cosmetic.

Thanks. I did nothing but work on the car for the better part of six months to get it into the shape it is now. Lots of pictures of the rebuild on my site if you're interested. http://www.stingrays.dk/Mini

order my blue stripe today looks like ll ll (the gaps between the l's in blue, the l's being the space on the roof)

gonna look goooood!
