I'm aiming to be there too, mine is nothing but a shell and a load of parts at the moment though Maybe I need to get to get a ticket soon to get the pressure on.

Same here Monkey. I have spent half my budget and all I have is a bare shell and a garage full of parts. Time won't be the issue for me it will cash flow, i'm sure the wife won't give up her vacations because I want to finish the mini, but if you don't ask you don't get.

So there is every chance I will make it, I might just turn up with two black eyes.

So, I have been busy with work so not a lot done on the car. I did however manage to repair the boot floor, it was a complete bitch as the repair panel was way out, just a small repair patch to do and welds dressed correctly.







Battery tray and support plate for the rear subframe this weekend and then turn her back over and get the cage fitted.

Just has a call and my subframe is being delivered next week, omg need to pull my finger out.

So managed to get the battery tray installed so that's the rear floor finished.



Also managed to install the roll cage, used ratchet straps, blocks of wood and anything else I could find to make it fit. Is it just me or does nothing just fall in as it should do?

I don't like the look of bolts so I welded it onto some 2mm support plates to give it some strength. The welds aint pretty but they are going nowhere.



Slight issue is my head catches the roll cage so I am going to have to lower my seat mouting points. Not a massive issue but a pain never the less.



I plan to install some swaged plates at various points on the cage to tie it into the shell but I will do this later as I need to get the underside painted and rear subframe installed so I get get her back onto her wheels.

I have had a change of heart as originally I was going to paint the underside Red to match the bodywork but as I am painting it Candy Apple Red I will never be able to match it correctly, so I have decided to go for a dark grey RAL 7016 and run this into the engine bay aswell. What do you guy's think will this look ok?

I think it will look pretty cool, break up the colours when the engine bay is open.

That's what I was thinking, keep some red bits on the engine to match the bodywork.

Thanks Monkey.
