    Hey chaps, just a couple of pics of the Mini I'm always mentioning in other threads! It may not be the most amazing Mini ever, but it's rocking 120bhp and weighs just 600kg, and makse me a thousand times happier than the audi could ever manage!

    Excuse the mother in some shots, it's mothers day so I can let her off for being in the way :)

    Car is currently sat as high as it can go on the coilovers, as it was to get on the rollers. I just didn't get time to drop it to normal height before I left.

    Just needs badges and a grille surround to complete :)

    Great little conversion!

    I had the use of a Mini 'John Cooper Edition' 1.3s (1990 G reg) whilst I was at Uni and whilst it was a hell of a lot of fun to drive the brakes were absolutely shocking. That said many happy memories!

    Bet this is a riot, looks much better in it's latest incarnation.
