This is my Mini

I am currently restoring a 1963 Mini in red and black, I’ve always wanted one since I was a child. And here it is. It is a complete rebuild  This is after welding but before spraying, if you know minis you might notice the bulk head modifications. Just filling with lead around the front end. And the back where it is DE seemed.



All smooth ready for martin.
