Dave where do you get that pic! That's my dads old mini. He had it 20 years ago and that could be me sitting in passenger seat! Weird that that's the one I'm basing the look on. Anymore pics?

Bit of an update. Decided to scrap the Flip Front and go for new panels instead. Flip had some waves
in the wings and it was never gonna sit the way id like it to. So ordered some new panels
from Huddersfield (never again, got delivery address wrong, send wrong speedo cable and panels
were marked, plus their ignoring my emails and not returning may calls. Well you live n learn).

The front panel does not match the curve of the bonnet so the bonnet will need modifying to allow it to run
in line with the front panel. Mk1 front will show this up if not sorted now.

So next stop Paint! Looking forward to seeing it done now.
