( that's a joke ) don't rob banks . should not be to bad . will find out more when i finish stripping it and get it up in the air see the under belly .

Bartman thats strange, you should meet up when they are both done and have a side by side lol (production line)

Sirkieran - think this one will take a tad longer than the last one, looks like a lot of bodged jobs there. What frame was used? custom or a bought one?
Should look good when its done tho

Yea its a watsons frame . B16a2 engine . Wiring loom is bodge to the high heaven . The main feed for the starter from battery is touching motor housing . Wires have been chopped all over place . Front corners of scuttle r held on with filler . Goin to fully strip everything down tuesday / wednesday . Write a list and plan of attack . May take a while but will look ace when finished .

Fuuuuck. Interesting way to build a mini.

Looking forward to seeing how this comes out, your last one was top notch.

Wow,

I have no idea what sort of budget your customer has? and its non of my business anyway, but i would have thought it would be more cost and time efective to scrap that shell and find a better one to start with?

I really cant belive that someone would think them bodges would be anywere safe enough to put a mini on the road!!!! let alone one with aprox 160 bhp!!!

Good luck with this one, hope it turns out as nice as the last one!

Take it easy

Mark

It's not as bad as it looks, it's just the usual rust patches you get on a money. Going by his previous builds, Kieran will have it sorted in no time.

I hate to see shells like this scraped when they will fix up with a bit of effort.
