Hi all, I felt inspired by all the great build diaries on here and so I've decided to post a few photo's myself.
Basically I wanted to restore yet another mini but I just don't have the space to store all the interior bits and bobs, so was just looking for a shell to start with. I put the feelers out and after looking at loads of rubbish on ebay a friend of mine offered me this 1979 Mk4 mini 1000 shell he had sat in his yard for decent money.
So I brought home a solid (looking) shell and started stripping off the few remaining parts (steering rack, subframes and a partial wiring loom)
I've done a fair bit already but I'll post the photo's I have so far and try and put them in an order that makes sense. First job was to cut out a bent rear valance, rear boot floor, spare wheel well and closing panels.

Not great photos, I know, but they were taken on my phone I'll take better photos from now on.
I'll post more photos of the other work I've done so far later so its easier to follow
Cheers for now
