Classic Mini. professionally rebuilt
Hi. Welcome to the sale of my classic mini. This is a beautiful little example of a classic British legend.
I have over 20 years experience with mini's and have restored several over the years. I came across this one just locally.
The previous owner had taken it off the road back in 2002 (I think) with the intention of replacing the wings and front panel.
He had removed said panels then lost interest. and the car had sat in his garage ever since.
I stripped the shell down and found it to be in pretty solid shape with no real corrosion problems.
An over-sill had been fitted to one side. I removed this and re-fitted the correct panel.
(the over-sills just trap moisture behind them and promote corrosion).
I replaced the other outer sill too. as it was just starting to go. New wings and front panel were fitted. br> all of which were correctly fitted with care and accuracy. (I have seen some awfully patched up
minis out there labeled as restored. each project I do I do with the aim of it being better than the last. br> or I'm not satisfied!) Any other spots of corrosion have been cut out and replaced with new steel work.
New panels were all etch primed for rust prevention and painted with 2k paint.
The underside of the car has been etch primed. primed. stone chipped and painted.
I have also thoroughly rust proofed inside the sills and other cavities.
All the suspension has been stripped and rebuilt. replacing any worn components.
Reconditioned radius arms
Both subframes are powder coated.
Hubs. suspension components. radius arms. hand brake brakets and backplates all powder coated.
I have a few hundred pics covering the rebuild from start to finish. She is pretty much like new!
Professionally painted in 2K in the cars original flame red.
New 5x12 Minilife alloy wheels with new tires.
New brake cylinders at rear and overhauled calipers on the front.
New steel braided brake hoses.
New brake discs.
Front and rear sub-frame. suspension components and hubs powder coated gloss black.
Cleaned. re greased wheel bearings. new seals all round.
Opening Quarter lights
New handbrake cable
A new headlining has been fitted.
New ball joints.
Rebuilt Hif44 carb.
Also there's heaps of history with the car. loads of old mot's and service recites.
I fitted a set of Hi-los also so the ride height can easily be tweaked to your preference.
Up-rated Poly sub-frame and suspension bushings and mounts used also throughout the car.
'Rave' wheel archs fitted. They have hidden fixings so no ugly screws on show. and don't need
holes drilling all over the sides of the car.
The car has a full mot. and has six months road tax. drives great and everything works as it should.
I have driven about 500 miles so far and the car drives brilliantly.
If you would like to view the car that is no problem. I can be available most days on prior notice.
