Although he stuck to original welding techniques, the Mini was treated to weld-through primer and decent underbody sealer to give it a chance of lasting better this time around. And Nick hasn't been averse to adding a few neat touches that aren't standard, like those Sports Pack arches. The wheel arch cut-out that would sit under the wing repeater lamp has been filled in to give a smooth profile and make it match the rear arch. It's a small point, but one that makes you wonder why everyone...

We are from Austria, the little country under Germany. Our 1972 Mini won a tuning competition in Dortmund, Germany, at the 'My Car' car show. The competition was run by Borbet, a German wheel manufacturer. We won against new cars with airbrushed paint and air suspension This year the Mini will be on the Borbet stand at the big Tuning World Bodensee fair in Friedrichshafen, Germany. And the funny thing is that Borbet only produce 14 inch rims but they are making us custom wheels for the show We...

Mini handbrake quadrants are notorious for rusting and can seize up, causing the handbrake to bind. They are located in a very vulnerable position where they get covered in plenty of road dirt. These alloy quadrants from KAD are a worthwhile addition to any Mini as they will not rust, are easier to keep clean and they look good too. They are CNC machined from high-strength alloy. 22.70 plus p& p. +44 (0)1303 874082 www.kad-uk.com The lack of a bypass hose suggests that it is a Metro engine....

Cc cylinder head buildup

Nitriding Burette

As with all engine projects, the end product relies on a good foundation. Firstly, the head needs to be as new as possible. New heads are much lass prone to cracking in my experience. There is no point spending time and money on a casting that is likely to fail. Stick with the newest head you can get, in this case I chose the A unleaded 12G940B range as seen here. This is effectively a spring chicken in comparison with the much older A-series 12G940 head. These heads came with 33.2mm intake and...

You would think that someone like Geoff Bell, who has had Minis in his blood from an early age, would know better than to buy a Mini unseen on eBay.co.uk. His older brother Ray raced with Chris Tyrell in the 70s, and his younger brother, Steve Bell, was Mini Se7en champion and died in an accident at Silverstone whist leading the Miglia championship in 2001. Sadly, none of these three are still with us, but Geoff says they deserve a mention for introducing him to the Mini phenomena. The...
