Default Keith's & Paul's Builds

Hi everyone, another couple of converts...

Having been inspired by SpNOam's excellent conversion at Castle Combe in September 2008, (and in this month's press!) I have since acquired the basic bits of kit I think I need. This includes the rather late discovery in the MiniWorld Ads of a part converted mk3 mini 'unfinished project' already fitted-out with a home-brew subframe and engine and a number of boxes of bits; wiring loom, manifolds etc. Even so, some serious effort is obviously needed to finish off!

I am now ready to commence my conversion in February this year as is my fellow club member, Paul, alongside it so we can both problem-solve and work together (using the project car as a start guide).

I currently run a self-modified 1330 turbo (102bhp/109lbs/ft) in my '66 modified shell (mini magazine - Jan'99 so this is the 'next incarnation' of it.

Paul's is a '63 Morris Mini Minor Super Deluxe which is currently being stripped back for some essential body repairs.

We look forward to regularly posting our progress on the forum.

We will have problems but, happily, there is a mine of info on here...

Keith & Paul

The Blue One...Unfinished Project Some work to do

The Red One... 1330 Turbo (15psi)
