Hardened Diff pin
New diff seals and rod change anti leak kit (it didn't leak before but I fitted a new kit whilst I had the box off)
Setup and rolling roaded by Bogg Bros, making 85bhp at wheels according to previous previous owner. Pulls strong, very torquey for a cammed engine.
Fiesta front brake conversion (Stops pretty well!)
6x10 Wellers with Yoko Semi-slicks (about 60% tread left)
Resprayed approx 6 months ago in Ford Radient Red with black roof - Very shiny, no rust. Couple of flaws in it but minor.

Oil Pressure guage (showing plenty!)
Other bits: Comes with an unfitted TIM ammeter, A pair of brand new round chrome side mirrors (£50) and 4x brand new spotlights (£55)
Faults: Gearchange not the tightest (I might just be comparing it to modern cars and being too picky though. Play seems to be in the selectors rather than the box. More than likely the roll pins on the rod change, as it didn't seem very tight)
Seat mounts are a bit pants (They hold the seat in perfectly well, just look a bit crap!)
I bought this car for £2400 2 months ago, and I've spent about another £700 on it and LOADS of hours. My mum has recently been in hospital and will be off work for 6months+, and I've just lost a major contract at work so I'm earning less and having to contribute a lot more to keep a roof over our head.
Unless I can secure some solid work in the next couple of weeks (unlikely!) I'll need to put the mini up for sale, to pay off some debts and give me a bit of a buffer til some work comes up. Bloody real world is getting in the way of having a nice car!
I know I won't get my money back, and I'd rather price it a bit lower for a quick sale. What do you think I should advertise it at?
Also If anyone is interested and wants to make me an offer, send me a PM because its 99% likely going to have to go
