After 3 years finally managed to re-install the door quarter windows in my 75 W&P 1275gt after my young assistant, despite the don't throw anything away except the old carpet, managed to throw the frames in a skip. Managed to fabricate some alternative frames and I'm quite pleased with them. Just need a new rear bumper when Minispares get them back in stock and all finished, bearing in mind it's a mini so it's all finished for now!

Looks well smart, any photos of the interior?

Wasted an afternoon trial fitting my passenger side alfa seat to the runners I'd knocked up, seats sit too high, I'm now ditching the frames I spent a day welding up and have revised my plans

I'm having to isolate for 10 days so  I'll try to have them fitted before I'm back in work

Tried to start it, given that its 30 years to the day since it was registered.

 

But it was having none of it (its below freezing here and its been sitting for 3 months) so I just left it.

Fitted a new dashboard 'cause I was tired of looking at my faded original.

Like Mini body panels, it required a bit of fettling to get it all together, but it looks a lot better now it's done.

Apologies for the photo quality I'll take better ones when I get it out of the garage.

Old one at the top.

Damn Beautiful. Did they not give you any trouble for the wheels on top? I have heard that RORO services dont allow ANY parts in or on the car that arent essential to it driving to the destination.

 Any details on that fabrication? It could really help with the Italian minis here that all seem to have those tiny windows and are all destroyed from the sun.

The actual small 1/4 window frames and glass I'd saved from the car when I stripped it,
The frames that they fit into in the door is what I fabricated from various aluminium profiles is that what your looking for.
