Mini pick-up engine bay refresh

Ian Gray’s mini pick-up is in the paint shop this week. We’ve stripped the old paint from the engine bay, tidied it up and given it a fresh coat of Tweed Grey. It is no ready for fitting up and for it’s new front subframe and Shorrock supercharged 998cc small bore engine.

Ian Gray’s Mini Pick-up gets new subframes

Over the last few weeks we’ve blasted, zinc coated, 2 pack blacked and built up a set of front and rear subframes for Ian Gray’s Mini Pick-up. Adjustable camber brackets, poly bushes, heavy duty tie bars, adjustable dampers, HiLos and Cooper S disc brakes have all been fitted. Next step is to repaint the engine bay and install the new Shorrock Supercharged 998cc engine with Speedwell head and Colotti 5 speed gearbox.
