The Mini takes a back seat ride down the road to a friends. Obviously its cold and he has a heated garage and a 220v mig welder. Gonna try and finish all the welding during our march break period.

More to follow

What's all that white stuff? We're mowing the lawns out here! Nice to see the car coming along..It will be strange to have another Mini30 VTEC around.. probably the only two in Canada!

Mike,

I lived two years out in Vic while my parents were posted there with the fleet. You cant tell me your mowing lawns just yet!!!

But seriously when this is done Id like to drive her out all the way the BC with my son. Give it two years.

Serious question. Im about the separate the door step from the inner sill. Inner sill has to go. Whats the best way to do this without messing up the door step.

THnaks

There were a lot of lawn mowers going this weekend past! I would drill out the spot welds from the door step side, then cut away the inner sill leaving the strip attached to the door step, and then grind away whats left from the sill side.. that should leave the door step in one piece, and ready to plug weld onto the new inner sill..hope that makes sense. BTW I have done several trips with my son across the Us in the VTEC Minis I have build, and it was a great thing to do.. I kept up a blog so the club and family could come along for the ride. We did Victoria to Rockford Illinois for an East Meets West meet...plus a few shorter ones, ie San Francisco, LA, and Portland trips as well.. good luck with the build!

I've been mowing my lawn every week since the end of January. I mow it at least once a month all year. Fact.

Guys I thought I understood how this car came together but I scared myself yesterday. At the door post I have to understand how it all comes together.

Am I correct when I think the front has the flitch panel, it goes to the door post. The bottom of the door post is attatched to the sill and floor board. Now on the inside of the car is it also attached to the bulk head??? If so does the bulk head meet up with the flitch panel as it goes towards the center of the mini? Here is the pic.

Work continues today.

Bondo was discovered which was a real downer. The previous owner told me there was none.

That is serious work... Be sure to brace the car enough so it doesn't get out of shape. Also, before removing too much meat, start refitting new panels. Just my advice!
