Hello to everybody,
The wife and i have recently purchased our second mini after a gap of 15 years.Its a 91 cooper but i have got to say she's seen better days.

This is where we could do with some help.We have two choices,run her as she is then later on trade up to a better mini or give her the tlc she needs to get her back to her former glory.Ive got to say that the latter is more preferable.

We need advice on where to take for a rebuild, mainly with the bodywork,in the west yorkshire area.The reason i'm asking this is the wife wants her done correctly but not to be ripped off.

Any advice would be very welcome.

Thanks

yes she is a cooper carb and very original with only a stage 1 kit added.

The wife loves her and so rebuild is really the only option really!
