Today I have started the strip down of the next Mini restoration here at Mill Road.
This time it's a 1987 Mini Advantage that's been off the road since 2007.
It's pretty rough but upon inspection, the only welding it's ever had in its 33 years is a 4" x 10" plate on the n/s inner sill.
Plan is a full body restoration, mk1 style rear end and a colour change. Then a full overhaul of the running gear and a brake conversion to allow the fitment of 10" wheels.
Some details are still to be decided but that doesn't stop me starting on the body.
So far I have got as far as removing the interior, glazing and main wiring loom.
More to come next week.
