Well, I finally got myself a mini! :-)

After nearly a year searching I'm really happy to get one. Thanks to all for help on the forum when I put up wanted ad etc. I took a long time to find a "decent" one. Here's a few pics of her anyway, I think it's in pretty good nick although it does need some work!

Although there is some rust on the a panel for example. The doors are rotten and there's some rot in the boot lid and a tiny bit of rust around the windscreen although it's the original scuttle I think and the the sills, boot etc seem in great nick :-). There's a little around the headlights too but doesn't look too bad i think :-/. Plan is to save the doors if possible as I have kinda budgeted for new doors so I've nothing to loose really trying to fix them and it's a good opportunity to learn to weld too!

You can see the state of the doors, previous owner tried to bodge it with mesh and bondo but did more harm than good I think. You can see a pic here where I took off the door cards and looked inside. Also a close up of one door showing the serious disintegration of ths skin!
