Newbie with a 1969 Cooper
Posted 21 May 2005 - 09:54 AM
I've just acquired a 1968 Cooper in El Paso Beige with a Snowberry White roof.
The car ir pretty original but needs restoration. I'm stripping it down to get the shell rebuilt (as I don't do bodywork!)
I want to get it back to as close as original as possible - but need to know what's not right! I have loads of questions such as where should the dip switch be? Is there any definitive guidance on the web?

My Mk1 had the dip switch on the floor just to the side of the tunnel under the heater!

Babybec - I live near Llanelli.
Guessworks - the wheels are non standard and, although I like them, they may have to go! They are a period modification though!
