The small bore engine is in the subframe and yesterday we lifted the pickup body over the top and dropped it on. We are currently fitting up the brakes, wiring and plumbing before the Shorrock super charger goes in. This will be a very unique little pickup when its done.
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.
Ian Gray’s Mini pickup is in not only for a supercharged engine but will also receive fresh front and rear subframes with rebuilt suspension, adjustable camber brackets, Cooper S discs and adjustable shock absorbers. His subframes have been media blasted, zinc phosphate coated and now painted in 2 pack black.
