Woah, that's a pretty tight deadline you've set yourselves. But if anyone can do it it'll be the original Justy-mini and weekend vaux conversion guys.

Good luck!

LOL, we can only try, but I think its possible, so much easier second time around. Today Jimbo & I did a full day on it, most of the cutting needed to the Justy has been done





I have ordered a tool for cutting the windscreen out, Jimbo does not want lumps of glass all round his workshop

Sticky back plastic and a hammer normally works quite well. Saves on postage costs aswell.

Oh, and you'll never do it in 4 weeks! lol.

Having other thoughts on this, the wife quite fancies using this one, an estate would suite her better, mainly due to the amount of shopping she does
Anybody got a cheap estate, does not need doors, windows, floor etc, I just need the main body & V5.

Hi Jerry,

You know you can move back your engine by 1".
Allan told me that there is a captive nut already there as if Subaru knew it!
So may be you can fit into round front with 4" extension!?

Cheers
