1990 Studio 2 998cc, no mods, right now kind of like my Mini to be a Mini. Just as it was born. Lots of character. I have had it 4 years now and no major problems. Cars in my past have been a 64 1/2 Mustang 289ci. a 66 chevelle SS 396ci , 3 VW bugs, 63,68, 69. etc, etc. But this Mini is the best and most fun i have ever had with a car. Thank you U.K.

I'm confused - surely if you have a 1994 shell then you have a 1994 registered Mini.  Unless you're saying you have a ringer - surely you wouldn't be admitting that on a public forum ;D

Hello,

I'm new to the forum, so here goes....

 

I have a 1980 Clubman, that is currently undergoing a bare metal rebuild. It was build as a rally car by a friend around 30 years ago, before being damaged in an RTA while he was driving to work. I bought all the bits, and planned to restore it, but the project stalled and the car was put into storage until Jan this year.

 

I had planned to compete on the Mull Rally in October this year, but I think that it will be 2021 now.

 

The shell has a Safety Devices 19 point bolt-in cage, flip and removeable steel front with opening bonnet.

I will be running the VeTech wide track and brake conversion on the front, with VeTech rear hubs and backplates, KAD rear arms with custom stub axels and brake backplate spacers to wide track the rear.

 

The engine is a 1330cc A+ block with MED crank, large centre main strap and flywheel. The head, pistons and cam kit are from Keith Calver. It will be running the Specialist Components 5-port injection kit, and the MED front mounted cooling setup with electric water bump and dry deck setup.

 

Think that's it in a nutshell.

 

Andy

I have been visiting Mull since the early 90's, and have serviced for numerous crews on the event over the years. I decided it was high time I actually did the event to see what all the fuss is about.  :lol:
