That car was well known in the club about 15 years ago the doors are non standard. Are you planning to fit normal doors if so you have a lot of work to do but I do have door moulds so can help there. If you want to keep the gullwing doors they need to be made from scratch (assuming you don't have any doors at the moment).
As for the dash looking at the photos I think you will find the original dash is still under the current dash mind it may have a lot of holes and cut outs in it.

I looked on Facebook for Mike but couldn't see him on there. If my memory is correct he lived in Crewe in Cheshire.

It looks like you have quite a task ahead changing it back to standard Cristian, good luck.

One possible solution - I have two Mk.2 Jem doors. The shape is virtually the same on the inside but the top front corner is different and of course the window frames are different. However you could modify them or fit polycarbonate windows with sliding ventilators.

This photo shows the main difference - Marcos in front, Jem behind.

From above. Note the frame on the Jem goes into the slot; on the Marcos it just screws onto the face. The Jem has no external handles so it has a panel lock to secure the drop light from outside. The white door is off my TMJ. The spare ones are painted black and have hinges.

I think the window frames, where fitted, are the same dimensions for all marks of Mini Marcos. The main difference is that the Marcos ones were usually polished or chromed brass whereas the D&H ones were formed of aluminium channel painted black. I haven't got the dimensions to hand but I have obtained a new set of Lexan door windows for a Mk.IV from ACW Motorsport Plastics so they may have patterns. If not I can make some.

Mk4 and mk5/6 doors are the same except for the catches mk4 uses mk1/2 mini catches mk5 on uses later mini catches. I'm fairly sure mk3 and 4 doors are the same aswell but that needs confirming. I have moulds for mk4 doors but I think I changed the catch set up as I made them for a mk5. I can make some for £250 a pair plus postage but I can't help with the metal frames.

Yes the moulds were take from mk4 doors though the catch area may require work as I can't remember what I did there as the doors I made were to take later mini catches.
It is possible to fit frameless perspex windows we have fitted them on my brothers (allan brown) mk3 race mini Marcos though possibly not the best thing for a road car.

Cristian,

Your car was converted to Gullwing by Mike Crawley, from Shavington in Crewe..  I've not seen him for a few years now, so not sure if he still lives there.

I've rung again and it turns out we have the wrong Mike Cawley  from Crewe  according to his partner who I just spoke to!

Back round to you Craig for any ideas. Also just realised you found us a Crawley rather than Cawley.

I've seen his name and partners name on a phone directory site, but you have to pay to get more information.

I've also tried the two listed Consterdines in the BT phone book looking for Dawn with no luck.

Glad to see you have it home. In some of the pictures I can see lines where the doors would be so it looks like the doors have been fixed in place then modified. This mean you maybe able to remove them and rebuild what you have. If possible can you post some pictures of the inside of the door area as we maybe able to see how they were attached.

Looks to me like your doing a great job. As you seem to be capable with fibreglass you could probably reinstate the roof by bending some sheet to shape to form a temporary mould. Laminate the shape trim then form another temporary mould to form the recess for the door frame. Once your happy grind back the joint line outside and laminate over. Flat that back flush fill and fair as necessary.

What about that massive gap between the front panel and the subframe? On mine (MK3) its not existent and even that tight that the subframe wont drop out without any bolts. That is engine still in place...

I don't think it's as bad as it looks. The upright look to of been cut out along with part of the valence probably to allow it to be flip fronted in the past I suspect once this is reinstated the gap will be minimal.

The gap is I think as Mike says, for the flip front brace. As I understand it Cristian wants to have the front end as original as possible. It looks like the fiberglass from the subframe up the connecting points is cut away. Normally there is a thinker lip were the subframes rest against the fiberglass.
A quick fix would be to have a spacer in the gap, otherwise you have to reconstruct the fiberglass.

No gelcoat is mainly cosmetic and uv protection but high build primer and paint will do the same job. Looking good by the way but I don't envy the sanding job to get it looking smooth again.

Believe me fairing in primer/filler is a lot easier than doing it with gelcoat. Gelcoat is harder wearing than paint but most cars end up filled and painted anyway so as long as you remove or glass over all the cracks you'll have no problems if you don't the cracks will show through the filler/paint quicker than they would gelcoat.

Fill the worst, sand. Then high build primer, sand. Repeat till your happy then paint. I like two pack (2k) but this is not very nice to you or your lungs you will need air fed hood, extraction etc.
