Beginning restoration if it is going to IMM in Italy next year.
Fitted adjustable suspension parts to set geometry to see what arch mods need doing to new panels before fitting.

Has taken 2 years to find as many replacement panels as I could.
If it was an animal, it would just be kinder to put it down tbh.

It was previously done.
Was going back to LHD, but they have modified the dash for the steering column.

Always liked these , I would revert to LHD even if it means a bit of extra work . G

Why didn't BL adopt this car back in the '70s. They would have beaten Ford to the market by two years, nicked sales from the VW polo, Renault 5 and Fiat 127. Who knows, it might have earned BL much needed capital so it could have scrapped the Marina, developed the Dolomite better and produced cars that people actually wanted.

By the way, great to see one of these being brought back from the dead.

I could see about getting dashboard repaired, would also need a way to connect LHD pedals to later type servo. I would have to see how LHD later Minis do it.

An extended pedal shaft that ran right across the inside of the bulkhead to a pivot and bell crank on the right hand side.
