Very neatly done BM. Most impressed.
How the hell my temp. losing memory thread found it's way onto discussing renovating a Mini is well beyond my comprehension. confused:

Thursday is the BIG night then.
I look forward to reading about progress on this matter, and hopefully the slow renovation process with pictures.

Do you have classic car shows out there in Cyprus then?  cloud9:

They have more classic 'events' I think where all the cars meet up somewhere (a local posh golf course) and show off then go for a run in convoy...

They also have rallies, time trials, etc.

Remember the numbers are much smaller here - only ~750,000 people on the island...  cloud9:

Regardless of working status, it is imperative for ALL men to have a hobby, preferably one that involves being with other geezers, grease grime spanners hammers cuts bruises and regular visits to the ale 'ouse to discuss tactics and development.

A doctor once asked me about my hobbies. The silence that followed seemed endless  noooo:  In the end I said, "Does smoking count?"

Those wheels look so wrong, but good to see (from the piccy at least) that the panel behind the wing, and in general look relatively rust free.

Paint it Bronze yellow inside and out. Full bare metal empty shell jobby. cloud9:
I may have to come over and view this once completed. lol:
