Hi TMF,

 

I'm Roger (Pops_Guild) and for a while now I've been helping find rare parts for folks. Mostly for SPi's but I can usually have a good stab at helping finding rare and NLA (no longer available) parts for any classic Mini or know folks who can.

 

It all started when I decided to completely restore my Rover Cooper, I discovered the hard way that so many of the important parts just weren't available any more for the SPi Minis and little by little I started to amass some important spare parts.

 

My Cooper is a JDM so some of the parts can only be found in Japan. Having to do that also taught me a lot about the quality and longevity of the re manufactured parts coming out of Japan. A lot of UK sourced rubber based parts I initially used didn't even last until I got my Cooper back on the road.

 

I also worked out how to repair the SPi inlet manifold, my guide about doing that is pinned to the SPi tech/problems area of this forum... 

 

A Guide To Help Refurb Spi Inlet Manifolds - Injection Mini Specific - SPi/MPi - The Mini Forum

 

 

Anyway, I setup a Facebook page to do a few things; provide tech info on SPi's (because there's a lot of duff info out there) and that page also has a storefront where you can browse the rare parts I have in stock. I am also the official UK distributor for Classic Minis Japan. I have a lot of their smaller items in stock to post immediately but can also help with some of their larger items too. These Japanese made items are also in the store.

 

I do this as a sort of hobby, I have a day job too but I will help where I can, as quickly as I can.

 

The Facebook page is here.

If you want something from the store you just message me on FB or you can email me on [email protected]. Or I you can message me here too. Payment is via PayPal or bank transfer. 

 

There's also a YouTube channel. I put helpful info on there from time to time.

Thanks for reading. Hopefully I'll be able to help some of you out.

 

cheers

Roger

Roger your assistance with replacing my inlet manifold was much appreciated. It was a quality product.
