I would like to thank Martin (mab01uk) for posting this on here and all his interest and help!
also thanks to the others whom have shown an interest in the Contessa.

This is the first time that i have posted anything on here despite registering some time ago
only this evening decided to give it a try again and managed to get logged on :o
been lurking about in the background for a couple of years.

On the Contessa work is progressing well at the moment I am re-trimming it so having to
remake all the carpets and other bit s of trim and as there is no paint visible inside the car
it quite a task.

Location: Oop North where it's dark & cold nearly all the time.
Glad you have popped your posting Cherry! Rich has kept me posted on your progress, it's one of his favourite projects of the people who visit him at Minispares.

I really look forward to seeing the finished article one day.

Good to see you on here Frank (or as Rich says.....to use your proper title 'The count' ) :lol:

So glad you saved this rare coach-built Mini and are restoring it to such a high standard and glad to have been of help along the way. I hope to see you and admire the finished car in the metal at one of the shows next year and I'm sure the Mini mags will be fighting over who features it on their front cover.
