Hey all, haven't met any of you yet but my Classic Mini is coming along quite nicely. A few more weeks and another dumpster of money and it will be on the road. Looking forward to meeting you all once the car is done!
The car: 1979 Classic Mini. I believe the car is "newer" than what the title states but no way to be certain.
Motor: Came with a 998cc motor. It has been pulled and a rebuilt 1275cc will be going into it later this week
Paint: Originally a lighter British Racing Green with white roof. The new paint is a much darker green/close to black with matching roof.
Wheel/tires: The ones in the pictures are the original 12x5 inchers. A new set of 12x5.5 Minilites are in the garage ready to go on it
Interior: Stock interior pulled out, nearly everything is being replaced. Corbeau A4 racing seats, harnesses, full black dash, new carpet, yada yada.
I will post pictures as the car is finished. Just thought I would show my (car's) face before I make an appearance at a club event!
Original pictures when I bought it
Body work started after old engine yanked out. LOTS of body work done, panels replaced. There was plenty of rot going on but has been sorted now!
Primer goes on (old doors still attached)- new ones painted off the car
New paint! Interior is still rubbish though, engine will be in and running by weeks end. Will post more pictures soon!
