This classic Mini came in a couple of weeks ago for some cosmetic work. The car is actually incredibly sound. So many of these Mini’s a full of rust but this one has clearly been well looked after. That being said there were some issues the owner wanted dealt with. Both doors had bad repairs and even worse paint work. The front wings were just starting to bubble up as was the passenger side A-panel. We chopped these panels out and fitted brand new heritage doors, A-panel and wings. We then painted the front half of the car in colour matched green metallic paint and reapplied the stickers. New arches were fitted along with new bumpers and grille. The existing paint on the rear of the car was machine polished. Underneath we applied a stone chip and under seal product which is coloured to match the body. The car now looks almost new again.
Ian Goodwright is not only our master painter but also fulfils the role of in-house Mini anorak. His knowledge of classic mini’s is extensive and his ability to restore even the most rotten example to a very high standard is remarkable. Ian’s 1963 Mk1 Morris Cooper was restored to the highest possible standard. Finished in Smoke Grey with white roof, Ian carried out all of the restoration work himself to achieve what should be considered one of the finest Mk1 Mini Cooper’s in the world.
