About my mini:

First of, I bought a Mini a my first car:

It was a nice car, but as you all know, it also suffered from rust >;)

I wanted to fix it, but after I began stripping the whole car, I found more and more rust, holes, etc etc

So I started to look on the WWW and soon I found a nice project for sale:
A body that was already re newed, new plate, etc etc, and Rust free!!! :thumbsup:

So I started building a new Mini with that new body:

All the plate work was placed, ant-rust lagers, etc etc
