    Minor 1000 Major rebuild

    Just a quick intro as I have a new project - to rebuild a Minor Convertable. The bodyshell has been professionally refurbed and it is on its wheels on new axles, brakes and suspension. But it has been passsed around a bit and now needs finishing. So I have been busy finding all the bits - from two Minors and establishing a new work area - in a nice bright airy building ....Out of the wind and rain - but no heating!





    This was a two door that has been converted to a Convertable as the old shell was too far gone. So I have put the hood pivot brackets on but the hood frame fit is hopeless at present.

    Thanks No Sound. It certainly makes a change from working on my drive or in a small, packed garage! Your project is most impressive.

    Hi Oldwoman
    It will be completely standard I'm afraid - so "A" Series 1098cc. Is your avatar a convertible Minor?

    Well I've kept busy with lots of little jobs, getting the hood frame straight and fitting to the top windscreen pins, putting the final brake pipes in, re- assembling the doors etc. I've placed an order with ESN for lots of parts, trim, hood petrol tank so progress is being made and I'm aiming for an early May completion.........

    Progress has been made! The fuel tank was installed last week and today we collected a nice engine lift. So it was put to good use and the engine and gear box are now in place





    I have also covered the rear hood wood strip and mounted that on the car ( the ends still need trimming.



    Another job is to retrim the seats so I've stripped the old vinyl off and started the re- covering.
