Hi all,
Well, I thought I would start a thread all about my precious Minty.
As you know I bought her earlier in the week for £1800 and although she wasnt exactly what we wanted she is absaloutley solid, which to me was the main thing!!
Shes 1969 and currently has a 1300 engine in her. She will need some cosmetic work to the exterior. She lokoks great in the pics but up close there are a few faults although nothing major.
The main plans for her are:

New interior in cream and green to match her exterior colour
Red rear lenses
Clear front indicators
Wheels (possibly empi 8's)
Eye lids
1600 Engine
Little things such as dixie horn, shiny tax disc holder, door pins etc
and finally a respray to make a real Minter!!!

May put pre 67 wings etc on but not too sure at the mo.

I'll put all the changes I make on this thread so I can keep a record of things, Any feedback positive or negative always welcomed!!

Tan xxxx

P.S if anyone has and parts etc they dont want and think I might need let me know!

What about bumper over riders ? The 4 that stick up where the bumper mounts connect to the bumpers?
