Yesterday our Bodyshop technician started work on a Mini Special restoration. This is one of Mini Sports own Minis. We do have a good collection of rare and good condition Minis although they are away in storage! It is a shame for them to be hidden away however, watch this space!

The Mini Special has, since entering the Bodyshop yesterday, been stripped and is ready to have its engine removed, to be checked. The Mini shell at first glance doesn’t look too bad but it will be having a few of those famously rust susceptible panels replaced.

There will be regular updates on the progress of this rebuild, perhaps with a few useful hints and tips for your own rebuilds too!


Once the engine is out, the next stage will be to replace any panels and prepare them for paint.
