You dont put A032R`s on something you dont intend to do properly.
Why would in three years it have a load of rust. Stop chatting a load of rubbish.
You dont put polybushes and Kad handbrake quadrants into a rotton rear subframe....its not hard to have a look to check all the bits there. They are blue and bright orange......
Why would the suspension be problematic.....? Its got a set of shocks, its got some hi-lo cones. Most mini`s now have at least hi-lo`s on the front to correct rubber doughnut droop. Same goes for stage 1 kits. (For those who dont know, this involves an airfilter changed to a nice pretty one, an inlet manifold, a new better flowing exaust including manifold, and the bit to adjust the fueling in the carb)
In terms of door gap. Thats about as good as it gets. line it up at the back or line it up at the front. Only way to get a good gap is to weld tig welding steel rods onto the outer door skin and smooth them in.
Been there, done that. Thats about as good as factory gaps get.
99% of cars you see for sale will mention nothing about the gearbox.
