Going with a bottom back panel repair as it currently isnt attached to the boot floor.
A new boot repair panel all across and some arch work yes.
New valance.

Rather than hacking away at the rest of the car, just going to focus on one area at a time otherwise ill strip it all down and it will stay like that forever

Then I want a smoothed valance/floor and no bumper then tub the arches and work that way round.

That much power in a shell with some weak areas...
Keep it for starters. minis are getting expensive to buy now. Do bits to it as time and funds allow. Mine has taken years and it still aint painted yet.

If shell too far gone, could always buy a better shell and transfer bits over.

Problem is, even bare shells are fetching around 1k these days that need work too.

I'm starting with the rear and we will see how we get on.

I'll be ordering some rear repair panels in the next few weeks, best mini place to order from in your opinion?

I was going straight to mini spares but not ordered any in a while so things could have changed
