Hello all,

 

After owning this for nearly 8 years, its unfortunately time for me to say goodbye. Divorce being the main reason it's not being used, loved or having anymore money chucked at it.

 

Previously owned by Shifty. I cannot confirm nor deny if he has posed naked in / on or around this car!

 

It runs and drives fine, it's only on wheel dolleys so i can get it tucked away into my rather small garage and still be able to get bikes and bits and bobs out without it getting knocked.

 

I know what i've got and i'll be honest, it looks great 10 foot away but is a bit rough around the edges, but for a mini this age, it's not doing too badly.

 

Completely unmolested 998 engine, swapped from an auto to manual by Shifty himself.

 

Cooper S disc brakes up front with new pads and discs

 

Mini fins at the rear

 

I'm failry certain its got braided lines all over.

 

Gaz shocks

Heavy duty tie bars

Heavy duty adjustabe kower arms

Hi-lo's on the rear

Again, faily certain its polybushed all over as well

 

New radiator, mini spares hoses, heater matris and thermostat

 

Cant remember the name but as you can see from the pictures, after market bonnet hinges which allow the bonnet to lift fully but have also creased the bonnet slightly.

 

Halogen headlights with added relays and in line fuses

 

10 inch Supa slot alloys wrapped in yokos with plenty of life left in them

 

Im sure there's so much more to list but ive been out of the scene for a while now and just can't think right now.

 

 

 

Bad bits.......

 

The usual bubbling has started around the headlights

 

I had an aguement with a garage who replaced the inner and outer sills but they used oversills as the outers (old rusty ones had been cut off) So the ended up cutting them down to roughly the correct size to open up the vents.

 

Had the rear valance, bootfloor and small secting of the rear quarter repaired, didnt have the money to get it all resprayed so the got touched over with some primer and black paint as you can see in pictures.

 

Few little car park dings here and there

 

Brake master cylinder has a slight leak, I just wipe the mat in the footwell and top the reservoir up.

 

I'll either be selling privately or trading it in with a firend of a friend for a VW Caddy. Which ever comes first really.

 

The pcitures do mos of the talking im too tired to do, but any question, please feel free to ask if that helps the valuation at all.

Sorry that you are having to part from your Mini.

 

I hope you find someone who will spend some love on it.

Cheers dude. Pointless being down about it or else never get anywhere. I've had a lot of fun and memories with the little car.

Trying to get a valuation on anything is proving difficult though.
