Restoration

Postby Rolandino » 02 Jun 2019, 08:56

After owning my Mini Cooper S MK II for 48 years Ive decided to restore some of the dented, rusty panels. All the work is being done by Simon Drew of The Mini Works. What started off as new wings and front panel has ended up as new wings, A panels, Flitch panels, Front panel, rear boot floor and arches, new rear valence and both rear quarter panels. I never thought it was that bad! Apparently the rust starts from within, below the paint. Leaking rear quarter lights dont help....
So apart from the Roof, my car will be beautiful again! Shame my wallet wont be in such a good state!

What started as a quick job on the car, the only part of it that is still original, is the roof ! Cant wait for the bill (not)!
