Got the call this morning that the Clubby was ready for priming so I legged over to see it pre-primer.

Image
Image

As the rear wheelwell is being cut out and replaced, I told Tom not to bother blasting it
Image

Image
Image

Even the petrol tank turned out rosy
Image

So this afternoon I got another call to say that it was all primed and ready for collecting so now it's safely tucked up at home
Image
Image
Image

The work was done by Tom Quinlan in Castletownroche, Co. Cork who has recently started the business and is keen to work with Minis. The wheels were removed and the complete underneath of the car were blasted and etchprimed. It was my first time having a car blasted and there definitely isn't a spot of rust left on the car. Tom is away tomorrow for a week's holidays. His website is http://munstersandblasting.com/contact.html

Early morning start on Saturday morning with Eamospud.

No progress this side of 2012 as it's in a queue at the panelbeater's. Will be ordering some bits after Christmas. I spoke to my friend in Galway yesterday who gave me the car and he couldn't believe that I intended to bring it to Italy next May. Mind you, there are plenty on this forum who probably think the same, and they could be right but you need a deadline.

Time for an update. First few photos are a recap with the subframes off. Then it's time for the open-heart surgery.
