Hi,
Well im fairly new to this, so here goes.

My names richard, im 21, and ive loved minis for years. 3 years ago i got my first running mini, a '96 Silver Bullet imported from Germany. not that i new this at first though! when i got it i was over the moon, i mean i was 18 and my car has leather seats, big alloys, fast engine, and generally full on phatness!!!!

sadly a couple of months later the big end bearings went in the engine, thus i purchesed a 1293cc engine. unknown to me the engine had stage 2 head, which was still ok to be used again.

the next big show after i finally got it back was the L2B 2003, this is when i found out that my car was rare. BUT i still dont know much about it, so any info would be great.

then a month after L2B (the day before my 20th) i had a little crash.

9 panels later and its nearly ready. while its been off the road ive got 1.5 roller rockers, a playmini exhaust and a new sound system and neons inside and out. i am really looking forward to getting it back, i just need the engine running and the front re-sprayed.

hey your right he is my brother! when he said 9 panels he counted the scuttle closing panels as a panel. it did have an inner wing. the crash only dented the wing but he had a hole new frount end to get rid of that nice bubbling rust! :fear:
