You are right mate its a bit lighter. It does not have any steel reinforcing in it, goes really well, handles alright too.

wow ... what a read that was !!
been shown this site by RandonNononse from the MiniResource forum ..
and been reading this thread, minty thread, and the RWD R1 thread
(will post in them threads shortly i think!!)
was alot of reading (bang goes most of sunday ! lol) but what a read.. is all VERY interesting !
makes my project seems a bit 'normal' in comparison

anyhows, the reason for my interest is i too own a minus !!!
ive been hanging on the miniresource forum latly so have posted my minus up there
http://www.miniresou...showtopic=14863

but as this thread is about 'who has one' well i had to post !!
plus to follow up .. this could be known as the minus register thread ! lol
as i and RN have both talked about trying to get one going...

well i *DID* know of 12 unique Minus's that i have discovered (not actually seen another apart from mine, the moulds to make them, and a RWD one) which was were i brought this one .. which is a nice story .. (found posted in the above link)

it could be his.. his is blue, and just a shell, and also ready for a respray ?
well i was told by keith, that they made 500. but ive also heard that they made 250 ..
so not too sure which one it true FACT.. would of thought keith would of known ?
but he said that most of um were exported .. so maybe half exported.. thus 250 are/was in UK

Small world isnt it?

I was in contact with a few other minus owners via email, but that tailed out to nothing and havent heard anything since.

I will be taking mine to both MITP and the showdown looking forward to seeing how it does on the black stuff.

It was by bosses son that owned the blue minus before and i was ment to build it with him as he was only 15 at the time, All i could see at the time was alot of work sorting the shell for painting. I had only just set up my buisness when he was selling it and money was a bit tight. I had to sell my old mini around the same time too and now wish i never did.

As far as the lightwhite goes, I brought it about 5 weeks ago from a lad in norfork who built.

He had the shell made for him along with the cage that is bonded through the rear seat to compensate for the lack of strengthening,. The shells quite a bit different to the one minisprint has. My rear shelf is flat, the bulk head has strange ridges in it, it has a removable front including the a panels. Its got mk1 rear lights with a mk3 rear screen and no hole for the fuel filler neck. Supposedly the fibreglass is also thinner than normal also.

He got the shell in 1991 and finished bulding it in 1999 and only did 1600miles since then, bit of a shame really. He did a good job of fabricating some of the plates and mountings, its also got a choped austin ellegro steering column which is much lower and in your lap.

It will make a nice car with some tlc and a nice turbo lump.
