Default '91 Mini, red metalflaked wheels.

Hi, this is my mini, my first car, had it for 5 years, done pretty much all the work myself, it might not look like too much is done but thats because ive tried to keep all the bodywork subtle, so like the one off mini van/pickup front grill, smoothed off LHD wiper holes etc...

This it still a work in progress and is still going to be probably one of the worst cars on here, but I like it.







I know the stance is crap right now, but its all adjustable and when I put the rims on properly (needs some arch work to go a bit lower) itll all be set up properly.

Ash.

Awesome ! Don't think i've seen that front on a saloon before !. What tyres are those?(Yokohama obviously) but, i haven't seen the white walls before. Are they painted on?

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Puma - not too many more plans for the car, swap out the engine for a bigger one and just generally finish off the car. As for wide arch kits, I didnt really want wide arches on it but I am going to have them because otherwise ill be getting pulled over all the time for my wheels sticking out too much, I dont have any photos of the arches on the car because they are at the paint shop at the moment getting colour matched to the body.

Minuki - the front is completely custom one off, ive never seen another like it either, thats why i chose to do it. The tyres are Yokohama A008's with atlas white wall inserts.

I see. Was it just the case of getting the front panel from a van or pick-up and welding it on?

Thanks everyone

Been fixing a few mechanical issues recently and generally driving about.

But I have made and fitted a new dash liner:



I need to carpet the bottom trays yet but its getting there

And also ive been playing with the suspension and fitted arch extensions, not by choice, but because I needed them for the car to be road legal:



Negative camber and lower soon

Ash.
