hope you get it back together soon

 

I guess the parts are to go straight on another mini -

 

rather than on ebay

 

makes you wonder if it is worth having a nice mini after all

 

sorry to see it like that

F in toe rags!!!

I feel sorry for you mate as I'm sure all of us here do,

My instincts are telling me that's its maybe someone local that has spotted it and decided to take your mini and strip it of your hard work and well earned cash for there own mini, I hope you get some sort of justice mate,

Get it up on facebook, I've known of cars being reunited with there owners after they have been plastered all over the local facebook for sale ads !!

Thanks guys.

Don't think it will Go back together.
£1.5k-2k worth gone. Hours of work went into setup/ wiring dash up (toggles, digi, starter button etc).
Things like front end will only fit on one car properly.
Can understand the metal going missing (scrap value) but fibreglass bits are another matter.

All hand built so would know instantly if seen them again.

Yeah, mini Danny. Another friend seen it and told me. Only moved it to its current location in November. Been 7 years on army bases and never a scratch. 2 months later, scrap value.

Was it covered over with those sheets when it was found, I would say it was stolen to order mate so to speak so as they could strip off the parts that they wanted/needed,

I`d say they were planning on going back to it too if they took the time to cover it over.

Haven't been on in a while, but notice a lot of posts in Stolen section, must be a very common theme with minis these days.

That was the breathable cover, all the tools in photos are theirs, done last night with offices and units in the vicinity done too. Must have been in hurry to leave tools behind.

Angle ground fence to get in and then went to town. Probably a gang.

Lets just say the Midlands isn't a great place to be a Mini owner at the moment.
