Nice car, but let down a little by the details. Agree that reverse rims look wrong (and do they hit the arches before the bumpstops?)
Plastic master cylinders :roll:
Also, what's that K&N vent pipe over near the radiator connected to I wonder? It's not going into the crankcase breather, as that's correctly piped to the PCV valve.

£42K for what looks like a flatpack in the wrong age shell, in the wrong colour(Smoke Grey '66!) with the wrong interior and poor panel fit to name just a few issues. I'd rather start with an £18K rotbox!

It's not only original Minis that demand big bucks...………..being a Lambretta owner also, I can relate to both.
