Life is too MANY, to have a MINI

The Mini is a small car that was made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a British icon of the 1960s, and its space-saving front-wheel-drive layout (which allowed 80% of the area of the car’s floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage) influenced a generation of car-makers. The vehicle is in some ways considered the British equivalent to its German contemporary, the Volkswagen Beetle, which enjoyed similar popularity in North America. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T.

pleasing to see beautiful pictures of different MINI’S. I also have MINI MINOR of 1963 since 1992. I am a retired AirForce pilot and now-a-days I am working on this small lovely mni for its restoration/reconditioning. I am aware that I might not get ‘spares support’ here, never-the-less, ‘InshaAllah’ I will recover this little beauty. More than me, my wife and childern are axiously waiting to see ‘MINI’ running arround on roads and people eagerly watching the vintage car.

Restoration of MINI might take some long period because I do not have a team of experts to extend help. I have under taken this project alone all by my self. Some help, how-ever, is being taken from local auto work shops, such-as denting/ patch work. WILL you be able to give me some advise when so required?
Thanks for acknowledging my efforts/project.
