Hi guys,

I'm back restoring another mini just after finishing my other one. This time it is a bit different. I bought this awhile back and had several ideas for it but ever since Dad started driving my mini he got the itch to get one. I decided the best way to get him on the road was to do that one up, plus I would have been there god knows how long trying to figure out what to do. I started the welding just before christmas on it and have been tipping away when having time. My welder decided to pop its clogs so a new one of those was got so I will be back on track soon enough. We've just returned home from Bingley hall where we both made some purchases for it. This will be going a lot slower than Lexi did due to time but I'll tip away and it'll get done eventually.

Laptop is very slow I'll try upload pictures from my phone in a few

Well unfortunately I'm having issues with this photo uploader so that is all the pictures for now. Some of the work may look a bit rough but it'll clean up grand.

Hi Guys,
Well today saw the rest of the front going on. The non genuine scuttle corner wasn't even near right to had to chop her up and fix that. Other than that it all went smoothly enough. Here are some pictures:
