well where do i start.right here goes in 2000 my little brother Lee spotted that his mate had a mini for sell,{£110}It was a sorry looking state when he found it and the main shell was to rusty to wield so he took the kit off and put it on another shell buttt that shell was to small,so he had to take it off again and finally he found the right shell for the job.for the next 5 years Lee would be putting every penny he had and spare time into it.buying the bits he needed a part at a time,and buying mini mags left right and centre for ideas.he did want it yellow to start with but changed his mind to blue{cos his mate was building a XR3i and done his yellow}.unfortunately lee went to do some on his mini the day he was stabbed,and was only half way though finshing his dream.when he pasted away.After all he did somebody took all his dreams away its so sad..but Lee had a lot of friends so i asked if his mini could be finshed to lead to funeral 1st was how it was 3 weeks before the funeral} so his mates Carl Grigg ,Fred and dave Clemsley all spent 24 hours for a next 3 weeks finishing off Lee's dream,they got a another mini from a friend{for nothing} for the engine{1000cc} and bits.because the 1300cc that was in Lee's car wouldnt run propley and was to smokey. the blue leather interior is from a 2001 mini cooper S and every thing else is standard mini parts. the carb is race tuned but its getting changed to the NiKKi carb that lee wanted on there{hes had i poster of that mini carb on his Bedroom wall} and i got to put a whole box of bits that he wanted on the mini to put on there yet so i got a lot to do this year..R.I.P lee lee im looking after it down here for you mate
