Hi Pob the Minus is around 3" to 4" inches lower from the waste line down than a standard mini so a lot of mods to do from the windows down inc smaller doors/dash/seats/roll cage.........

Hi I jonez
The sun roof is a bit different ,twin glass which can be opened or removed separately also on the middle beam it has a large interior light (1980's)at a guess. I have now decided to fit a full length Webasto type sunroof so this twin one will be up for sale at some stage
Open to offers???

Very cool, never seen the boot/rear modified to be a hatch like that - very cool indeed.

Will be watching this one, keep up the good work.

Its going to be tight a standard mini A series engine you have to make a bulge in the bonnet for the oil filler cap. I have taken some measurements from my subframe to the engine top (suzuki) and i reckon it will just fit if not i will make it fit ! ( thats the mini minus onwers ethic) well mine any way
look out for a one off bonnet if it comes to it .
