Default Reggie Kray '93 Rover SPi Mini

What's up guys. It's been a while... college, grad school, my 2011 Mini catching fire and almost burning my house down. Ya know the usual.

Finally I picked up a new ride on a trade. A 1993 Rover Mini with 1275 SPi. It needs a lot of work and it'll probably be a slow process but I have always wanted a classic mini so couldn't pass it up. Here are a few pictures.

Yeah, that looks like it needs a little bit of TLC alright... Cool little cars though!

Nothing interesting. Sanded down some rust spots three some primer on the bare metal and tidied up some things. Need to have front fender and a few little spots welded up.

Done a lot of boring things. Wiring, cleaning up some bits, organizing. Finally order s some parts to see if I can get it to start then have to finish the rear suspension up. The plan is to get it running and registered then Iíll slowly make it cosmetically better.

Been a long time. A lot has changed since I got this guy two years ago. Was busy with a move and some life changes but wonít bore you with that.

Some welding, all new suspension, carb conversion, wiring fixes, etc. the Mini is now up and running. Still a long way to go until itís final form but enjoying it for now.
