I must say, I spent about 2 hours today going through this entire thread and disecting everything that you have been doing. I am impressed with the mini. The knowledge that you posess for the fabricating, engine work, and planning is incredible.

This is going to be one clean mini when you are finished with it. It's a shame that you won't be able to bring it to the States right away. In the mean time, you'll be able to find a great place to get the paint job done while you are waiting for your new kid to join you again.

In the UK it is common to see maybe 4-7 of them at a Mini show. It happens over here but not all that common. I did it because the rest of that Mini was about shot otherwise I wouldn't have. One of the things is British Motor Heritage makes all the body panels for Minis and someone could order all the panels to make a Mini trailer and not have to take a whole Mini off the road.

Why thank you. I only have God and the USAF to thank for my abilities and training.

You think this project is nice? You should have seen my Jeep build. I don't have a thread for it but I have a butt load of pics. Have at em.

Ya, I'm going to miss her while I'm gone but she will be in good hands. She also might make this years London to Brighton run while being baby sat.

Yes, I plan on getting a custom fiberglass tonneau cover with hydraulic lifts like on the Jeep hardtop tailgate but that will be done when she is back in the states.

It was the only way I was able to seat the bead at home. We use an airblast at work to set the bead on large tires like that.

Yes it does. It's worse when your standing next to the Dodge and looking at the Mini. I had forgotten just how small that thing really is.

This might sound like a dumb question or statement kinda... but, when do you get "U.S." License plates ... or do you get to keep your Euro's ?

I can run the UK plates for 30 days. Beyond that it needs to have US plates. I am going to see what can be done about keeping the British plates or plate number or maybe a British plate on the front. Something to retain its heritage.

Does WA require front and rear plates like CA? I see a lot of cars here that have Euro-plates on the front with their GA plates on the rear.

I don't know. All my cars are registered in Oregon since I'm a resident there. It used to be that we had to have both front and rear plates but the last time I registered a vehicle there it seemed like some vehicles didn't require both so I don't know. I'll find out in a few weeks when I go down to my parents for Christmas.

You're fine. Hopefully this summer I can get started restoring Millie and this thread will come back to life. That will be so much fun. I can't wait.

My friends are in one of those mini Cooper clubs. They said they are a blast. I'm sure we will enjoy your restore as much as you. You do a good job!

Name game

Looks like a fun project, I came to your thread cause I was curious who was using "COYOTE" as their name and why I could not when I signed up.
Enjoy the build from one Coyote to another
