    How are funding this project?
    Have you got any specific skills or using a Haynes manual with trial and error?

    Only criticism being so far, obviously you should have completely stripped to the shell and discovered the shot floor/got all rust repaired/got the engine bay sprayed at the same time.
    ..secondly, you should have sprayed it british racing green.. :rolleyes:

    Am very interested to know how you are funding though!!

    Funding is combined asking for mini bits for xmas/ brithday the last 4 years, 3 years of student loan and hardly any nights out drinking, part time jobs, and some inheritance.

    I know i should have done everything first before the spray, but i didn't know i was going to go this mad with the project, and i trusted the garage who did the work, who ripped me off.

    Live and learn.

    Yep, haynes manual teach yourself stylee, along with help from friendly people on various mini forums.

    Its pretty tame compared to yours JC!

    next step would be a dif block with a standard crank, to give 1380(more torque) and a supercharger!

    1380 is old hat though, this is gonna rev and rev and be good fun. and ifi had a charger, it would stick out the front of the bonnet quite horribly!

    It rather ruins the lines of the classic mini! and unlike your car, where youve got thtings stikcing up from the middle of the bonnet, which look cool, kinda like there meant to be there, having a supercharger that literally hangs out of the front of the car (will be the most forward point of the car!!!!!!) looks, well, odd!
