The body shop has been making some progress on the mini. She even got some primer yesterday! We are hoping to have final paint in about a month if everything else goes smoothly. The body shop still needs to do some work on the doors (one needs a new skin), they are installing a custom 4 pt roll bar, and all the body panels need to be fitted. We are going to check out the car later this week and hopefully decide on final paint colors.
We also purchased a '03 5PW R1 engine and wiring harness yesterday off of eBay yesterday. Let's hope this one is real! If this engine doesn't pan out then I'm taking it as a sign that this car isn't meant to have an R1 in it...lol.
Here are some pictures from the body shop:
