That's superb, I can almost smell that original Mini scent. A purchase that's guaranteed to make you smile

Its not in bad nick. Got a small dent in the boot lid that’s easy sorted and needs a new choke cable, ordered already, as the twist lock doesn’t work. Subframe is like new and no signs of rot anywhere. Will get into it properly this weekend and give it a good check over.
Went for a run in it last night and it felt great. Brings back fond memories 🙂

Congrats on the purchases, G. My parents first car was an 850.
Hi Rob. Hope your keeping well.

I’m only 54 but my second car was a Clubman 1100.

Only 54. Christ.

Just ordered a set of upgraded headlights that use H4 halogens. I had forgot how bad the old sealed units were 😩

Don't those drop-in LED projector headlights for Defenders fit? Great little units - unless you're on the other side of them :shock:

Yes they do but I want to keep it as OEM as possible. At least these will look near enough standard. Ordered a set made by Lucas. That names a blast from the past.
