i looked into that idea useing a RSR sprint shell but when you add things up there quite expensive. but then i also recently found a minus for sale in thrapston So may be tempted again :grin: The other option i thought about was a rover t series turbo engine in the back of the minus. But think i'm gonna concentrate on the mk1 first

the minus has more outta the body. thats why they have the buldge in the bonnet for the carb and the sprints dont. I maybe wrong but thats what i've been told. Think the minus has a 3"body chop and normal roof height and the sprint has about 1 1/2" body chop and 1 1/2" roof chop.
