Hi I've been missing for a while and have sold my Clubman estate which i was converting into a van. I then scrapped my GTS as it became a rust bucket and literally collapsed on me. I have acquired a 1968 or 69 Mini Countryman ( with Australian doors) which I'm going to restore. I'm currently rewiring it. I'm also hoping to acquire another mini and selling my current ride which is a Mazda 323 which is in a bad condition.

I've a '96 Japanese Rover Mini Cooper SPI.  So far, mods have been mostly cosmetic (stripes on the hood, bling here and there) but did put in a K&N filter, replaced the water pump, and bled the brakes. Near future work includes sorting out the air conditioning, braided brake lines and new brake pads.  Far future work will be in the tranny where second gear is an issue.  Patience and double-clutching has kept the grinding to a minimum - sometimes not at all if i get it "just right"

Morning all,
Just joined the forum so thought I would share what I drive.
93 Spi in BRG. 17k from new.
98 Mpi in Flame red I use regularly.
The Spi needs nothing, although I've just changed the vacuum hoses and now runs sweet again.
The Mpi is going to get hi-lo's, red spot cones and a general suspension rebuild. Better front seats as I'm 6'3 and it's a bit tight!
Possible 10" wheel conversion?
Great to be here on the forum and hearing about everyone's experiences.
