I'm in the middle of the restoration of this '79 clubby estate. At the minute it's in Sandglow. It was painted 18 years ago and had remained there in the mechanics workshop under covers, cause the elderly owner passed away and the mechanic bought it off the family to recuperate his costs.

I've already got a '77 1000 in sandglow and want a colour change in this one.

Getting ready to paint the underside and want it the same colour as the car will be.

Is there links or photos anywhere of this model that I could take a look at and get ideas ?

I've done the google thing, but nothing jumps out at me !!

Oh I don't know - owning 2 Minis in matching colours seems pretty cool to me. They look great side by side!
But if you want a change, maybe do the bumpers, long body stickers and trim in black to contrast, with smart black wheels and interior rather than the standard 1970's brown.

im pretty sure that is aztec blue and those arches are screwed onto the wheel arch lip under the arch, so you cannot see the join. and i think a teeny bit of filler was used there ;)

Finally settled on a colour at long last.. Snowberry. Perhaps with a black roof and arches, depending on what wheels I use.

Have done the underside, inside and engine bay. It took 3 litres.

Here's the before and after of the inside rear.

glass came out straightforward. The surround is held on with small bolts and nuts along top and btm, the spring clips stay attached to the body. Seals were held in place with screws, find them and undo
