MIKE,
Are you going to stick with the same frame design or will you have to make any modifications?

Strudel, I think I will stick to my original design, maybe a few small mods but why re-invent the wheel! (or the frame). I will make the front lower bar removable to make the engine easier to get into the frame, and slighty modiy the bottom bars as well, but not sure much else will change.

I did build a Moke, but as stock, and now it's up for sale to help fund the next VTEC conversion.

0.9L Mini. - I think I found the diagrams, but they are not the best quality, hard to read.. I'll send you my email via PM.

Interior pulled out, ready to convert to LH drive due to rack interferances on the RH drive.

How do I get the instrument cluster out?

The car had a air conditioning, looked to be factory install as it was integrated into the dash. All removed and ready for sale, as I don't need it any more.

Removed all the lights and electric, front flares from the front last night. This weekend I will take out the brake and clutch masters, and move the steering column over, the start work on removing the front end. I will make it a steel removable front, but with no exposed fittings so it will look stock.

Looks good Mike. I guess I'll have to start a thread on this site as well as the one I have on ausmini.com. I plan to be working on mine on Sunday so give me a call and stop on by.

It just occurred to me that maybe this post should be in the "Honda Builds" section.

Good idea..Moderator..can this be moved to the build section please?

After spending the morning changing out a heater pipe on the MR2, the afternoon I had time to remove the dash cluster, heater, carpets, steering column and the pedal set, along with the brake booster and master cylinders.. The pedal set was bolted in the front with three of those bloody securtiy bolts, so it took an hour or so to grind off the heads laying on my back. I tried just cutting slots and using a big screwdriver, but to no avail, so they got ground right away..what a pain in the butt. Will clean everything up a bit, and then weld a new front RH side corner in place to repair some damage, Then the front end gets cut off, and I will start building the frame.

Front corner repaired, then front end cut off and working on fitting it to make it removable steel front end..





Trial fit of the cut off front end, back on the car sitting on hood pins...

work on the front end pretty much completed for now. it fits off and on and looks stock, so no more work needed until prep for painting. Now on to the subframe.
