I post here a lot so thought I would share this as well.....finished one project. Time to start a few more.

This project will span over a little bit of time as I will be doing some other projects while this one is going as well. This will be for my wife...79 LHD Mini 1000 with a 97 Honda D series and automatic. It will get AC and a bunch of other modern bits.

The mini....



When we picked it up...


looks even smaller behind a ranger


The donor... parting it out tomorrow



Hit pretty hard in the rear...

Honda is parted out and the shell is going to scrap tomorrow.



In addition to the engine/trans I am saving...ALL wiring, cluster, console, steering rack, front suspension, AC bits, cruise control, pedal set, and a handful of other random little bits.

Wow, I agree, this is awesome. The mini weighs a full thousand pounds less. Its going to be fast and get amazing gas mileage.
