Is there anyone stripping a late model mini shell that will cut some parts off the shell for me and post them to Australia ?

The big problem you have here is a lot of couriers will not carry body panels. I sent a door, only in the UK and when it arrived it had been squashed beyond repair. The carrier basically said we will not cover body panels so is at your own risk.

I recommend trying one of the Mini spares suppliers. I get that they are going to be expensive. But the courier cost is likely to be off putting anyway. These people will know best how to package large items.

Sorry if this isn't really what you want to here but is my opinion and experience.

Iím not after large panels.. just a few little bits of body panel..

The hole for the handbrake cable
The relay bracket on the firewall (inside and out)
The security plunger bracket from the boot
The mounting point brackets for the seatbelts from the companion boxes
And the little arches from the c pillars (late models with the bulges..

I think thatís it off the top of my head..

Would all fit in a smallish box,
