Cooper MPi Restoration

This Mini is a 1 owner car purchased from Crown Garage, Soham in 1998. The owner used it to get to work and it covered 85,000 miles in all weathers. The owner decided to give the mini a new lease of life so asked us to carry out a full restoration. The Mini is now their pride and joy and only goes out in good weather!

The Mini was dismantled, eveything was removed and put in storage. We then got to work on the shell which as you will see from the photos required extensive repairs and panels replaced – wings, front panel, apex panels, scuttle, outer sills, inner sills, one door, door sking on other door, boot floor, repair panel, valance etc All Panels were available are Heritage Genuine Panels.

Once re-sprayed the shell was rebuilt with as many of the old parts as possible but it did require many new parts as well. The original alloys where refurbished and new tyres fitted. The engine/gearbox cleaned and repainted, although a new cylinder head was fitted, new clutch , water pump, alternator, pipes and service items.

The Mini has been retrimmed to original factory specification which is always a nice job to take on.

We have included some before, after and work in progress photos to give you an idea of the detail and rust proofing we include.
