[i]BEFORE [/i]pictures of my Minor

Postby psjorge » Thu Jan 15, 2009 12:09 am

Hi everybody,

I understand that this might not be the best place to put some "presentation" pictures but anyway...

Here are a few pics of my car just as I bought it (during a momentary moment of madness, obviously...)

As found on a shed/workshop...

The engine bay doesn't look very smart...

There is still some metal within the rust...<br>Image<br>

Lovely interior...

Not much better underneath<br>Image<br>

It's best photo!<br>Image<br>

Comments, anyone?

I'll try to update the pics as the car is nearly finished!


All the best,
Pedro

Looks in about the same state we bought our Daughter's car in 5 years ago 1956 Series II, although thankfully most of the welding had been done, so it was just painting and a complete new interior. All the window rubbers had perished and the 803 engine had not been used for 18years! It took about an hour to remove all the rubbish piled on top of the car. Looking forward to seeing the latest pictures. :D
