I am guessing the underside has some "character" bumps and bruises. Will be interesting to see were this one ends up price wise and geographically.

I just know that I don't want my car to look like every other classic mini

Dave, may I suggest you look at your avatar?  Or maybe a vibrant shade of teal, not girly shade, but in your face shade if that's possible.

Thanks Dave and I got all excited cause I still have my prize certificate.  Then I found it and it expired Dec 31st. 

The reason NOT to order from 7ent.  22.95 for the cable 14.50 for shipping.  SERIOUSLY it's 1 lb if that cable.

Guess I'll call and see what, if anything they can do.  Not getting my hopes up.

Seven is more than doubling the UK retail price of that choke cable (MiniSpare sells it for 7 = $9.50) AND they overcharge for shipping too?!

Companies really should wise up on crazy shipping charges.   Millions of shoppers are getting VERY used to the Amazon model with 'free' or low cost shipping combined with getting their order in 2 days or less.  That trend is spreading quickly for other online retailers and the old days of having a shipping dept as an additional profit center just can't be sustained.

The folks at 7Ent have accommodated different shipping for me in the past.  You usually have to ask as their website quotes UPS only.

I hear you on the color choice.....I've been trying to figure out what color to paint my project car too - I want something bright but not red, orange yellow or purple.

I think the fact that the car is in Germany may be the biggest hold back to it's financial future - at least for buyers here in the states.

I agree, seems underbody shots are required anymore - especially for older cars that were prone to rust anyway.

I"m late to the game on this...   welcome to the forum and I had to mention that I'm familiar with the Norwich/Mildenhall area as that is well I grew up.  In fact I was just there this past summer.  Your mini looks good with wonderful progress.  The guys are this site are definitely knowledgeable and great people.  I am certainly interested in following your thread.

thanks

if I went back to Norwich/Mildenhall area, I would come back with so much mini parts, Dsn classic is in that area
and coopers garage is in Mildenhall Village, they have so much mini parts, and the owner of that shop (Steve) he has built a few cars that have been in the mini mags over the years, when I left 3 years ago, he was building a air plane themed twin charged mini roadster


Lone star mini, ive looked over your build a few times, I haven't looked over to many projects on this site, but yours is one of the few that I have

I hope to have my car done soon, I'm trying to push myself, my wife kind of wanted me to have it done to take to a huge car show in Yuma, AZ that's the 1st weekend of March, but I don't think it will be done, it will be running and drivable but I want to repaint the car but as always, I haven't figured out what color I want to go with this time around

the current color has been on the car for a little over 4 years, going on 5 years
