Hi

 

Just bought a classic mini, a 1994 Sprite, needs lots of love and attention but its running/driving. Got her for a good price. Wish i knew back in the 80's what i know now as use to buy and sell them for £50 all the time.

 

There are pictures on google of it from previous owners which brought me to this site as it has donr the london to brighton and other events

 

Glad to be here and part of a great community

 

Cheers

Hi and welcome any pics of it to put on here and what are your plans for it.

Thankyou. I dont have a garage so cant do a full resto but will be sorted best i can and resprayed. Its running/Driving and has some plates welded which are not very nice welds so will grind back and re-weld. It has alot of extra wiring in it from over the years so will sort that out aswell. Will replace all bushes, suspension, brakes etc etc. It has blue household carpet in it but I have a black carpet kit on order and for the future i dont know how far i'll go with it. Probably keep standard with a few subtle mods, like change interior to some nice black seats but not bucket, round spots instead of rectangle, as i say just subtle changes, might fit central locking, dont know yet.

 

Also, it originally had a 1275 but now has a 1000 metro engine. I will hopefully one day find a 1275 that needs rebuilding so i can put back to how it should be.

 

I cant find a good free hosting site so havent got any pictures ive taken but here are a few i have found on google....
