    Postby poshboy » Sat Jan 07, 2012 12:43 pm

    Have come into the possesion of a mini shell, austin mini obv, not sure on year or anything but it's stripped back ready for restoration, appears to have a new front end welded on not sure if the guy had planned a bike engine conversion. Have the shell, doors and boot lid. Any ideas what I should be looking to get out of it?

    Not sure if your wanting to keep it or sell it? We are in the middle of doing a 106gti conversion , and we are goin to be selling as a complete drive in drive out package, it's going to b a very cost effective and reliable conversion, probably ready march .
