That's a good way to weld them together, chamfering the two halves to a vee then doing multiple passes to build up the weld. Someone I here with more welding experience could tell you more about getting the maximum strength but this is a good starting point. It allows for the best penetration.

I cut  D's in the end of mine, the idea is the the D's oppose the torque while strengthened by the sleeve, the welds just hold it all together longitudinally.

Well 4 years later and the mini has been pretty faultless with the only problem being a failed rad fan relay (rover item).

I've fallen out of the mini shows the last few years so there's not many pics so here's one from a local breakfast club meet

Would I build another VTEC mini - no. It is silly fast and alot of fun but my micra build beats it hands down for day to day use
