Older minis don't have a chassis number stamped onto the body. The number is generally on a plate riveted to the slam panel and easily replaced. What they do have is a body type number stamped on a rectangle sheet of metal spot welded to the body. This can give a rough indecation of age. If the car ...

I heard recently Billy was teaching Colin how to make Hydrolastic fluid, perhaps he would like to try brake fluid as well. :D

Is it a Jap import?
Is it a MPi?
Or is it a Jap SPi on a MPi block?

A car can sit in a garage for years without being registered.
You need to look at the engine and see where the oil filter is mounted, on the block (top left) or on a bracket( bottom right).
A photo might help.

20/50W oil.
A '97 Jap mini should be a MPi block (oil filter directly on block) with single point injection.
If its a late registered '96 it will be a SPi block (oil filter on alloy bracket with pipe to block).
Two different types of filter.

As well as holes the roof has a lot of dents. I don't know how good your bodywork skills are but you will pay a lot in labour to get that looking right when its freshly sprayed. I know the roof panel is expensive but I think it would be worth the investment. The other option I have seen done is to b...

They may only be available in Japan and the man to talk to there would be James Kelly in Minifix. He imports mini stuff from Japan regularly. He should pop up here or you can get him on facebook under Minifix.

Not sure what you are calling a "trim set".
If its the top and bottom dash rails than there the same as European cars.

I wouldn't take all the questions as a negative, if anything your getting plenty of feedback which at this early stage should be a positive. If you were well known in mini circles or known for organizing events there may be less questions but as said above you seem to have come out of nowhere. The p...

Apart from a date and venue your not giving away much information of what to expect on the day. Entry price for show or show and track? Will the track be purely minis? How much track time? Will there be show prizes? Will there be autojumble or traders? (any confirmed yet?) What time will it start an...

Is that the 1331cc twin cam fuel injected. 5 speed box I presume. About 88 bhp. If it all works out I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to move on to the turbo version.(130 bhp). There is a limit on the size of attachments but the quality is still good enough if you resize them. I usually open them in ...
