Will be good when done.
Funnily enough - well it is for me - the person who built my Mk 3, cut the front off the car with the plan to make the front look more like a Jem.

If I can dig a picture out will try and post it here.

Regards
Gary

Good luck with this Matt. The front wheel arches look very cool!
I think I can see a  classic Mini under the cover. Is this for parts or is it running?
And a white Mini Marcos in the foreground.. what is the story with this?
Or are these pictures from the prior owner?

cheers Philip

Photos are from the previous owner - the wrigglesworths.

The front end has some "wonk" to it and the inner wings panels need some investigation. Have already contacted the club grp-meister about getting a new jem nosecone.

Plan is to to get the car back on it wheels. I have most stuff to go on it including period 6x10 minilite, vented brakes, hill climb rear beam, coilovers. Will fab a rear cage to pick up the rear suspension. Engine will be a 998 turbo.

Matt - after the powder coating do you have to re-tap any threaded holes?
If so, does this cause the powder coating to chip off?

A few shots from the last months. Rear suspension just being test fitted so the inner arches can be turreted (the top mount hole is incorrectly located and the rear hoop/spaceframe can be tacked in place.
