as promised some photos of how it is at the moment and before i washed 5 years of grime of it. needs a fair bit of work but not too bad for it's age.














and will hopefully end up like this

998cc engine is to be replaced with the mg metro sitting in the garage,1.5 negative bottom arms,adjustable tie bars,hi-lo's,kayaba gas adjust shocks,playmini stainless exhaust,lcb manifold,k&n filter,bigger carb needle in 1 3/4 carb,ported head,
superminfin's,7x13 with 175/50 tyres,alloy interior handles,chrome exterior handles,chrome bumpers,chrome wipers.
may have a few more ideas.

price varies on the car a lot as i have seen some on ebay go for more 500 needing a lot of work ie whole front end and floors. they are out there just i was lucky to get this one at the price i got it for because i looked around and it's worth more than double what i paid for as is. Alan at A41 minis is doing other things but i spoke to him just before xmas and he's going into rebuild's and the like more than just repairs he's putting a spray booth and bodyshop in well thats what his plans were when i saw him.
i've just been to price up panels to do my mates mini sprite and they have gone up in price a fair bit since i last bought some.
oh well i've got to rebuild 3 mini's this year if money and work allows well at least 2.

i'm now going to sell this mini as a project as i know it runs sweet just need's clutch sorting and then the bodywork sorting but it's a really solid basis to start with as i was going to replace lots of panels just so it would be good for another 20 years as i know where they rust and this has a bit but not bad for the age as i have seen a 1999 one with a lot more than this one.
i will also be selling all the parts that i have like spare door's,mg metro engine and lots of other stuff.
i'm only selling due to lack of space to do it in and also selling sierra aswell and just going to buy a car that i'm looking at so it's all going to fund that.
