Shame to see it go, I would have had the shell if I hadn't already bought one recently.

Yes, sad but it's been sitting in the garden since the Smart RR Day. When was that?, 2010?

With two other Minis with fixed shells waiting on finishing, I've no reason to keep it.

I'll be offering the shell for sale for little more than beer tokens in the near future.

It's a shame to see it go especially seeing what you achieved with it

Well nothings lost as it will all be carried through to the new car.

Long serving members will probably remember this car that I part prepared for one of the lads back in 2009. It has sat in the back of the barn since then.

Got it out and gave it a clean:


Fixed up the door frames and fitted new skins:


The engine and box are ready to go in. It's the latest development of the 998 Turbo. More boost, bigger turbo, ported head, tuned length manifolds and more revs should make some decent power.


Engine Spec:
998 block bored +0.020" (1015cc)
Hypatech pistons with buttons
Lightened and shot peaned rods
Wedged, hardened and balanced crank
VP2 bearings
Alloy/alloy duplex
Custom ground scatter cam
DSN timing cover
MED damper pulley with 35-1 toothed wheel
1.3:1 Roller rockers
Modified 1275 steel backed oil pump
Ported 12G295 head with 33/29 valves, bronze guides 9:1 CR
GT1752 Turbocharger
Stainless remote turbo manifold
Stainless inlet manifold/plenum - 4*800cc/min injectors
SC box/drops & 4 pin diff. 3.1:1 Diff ratio.
Lightweight verto flywheel with RTS Verto clutch
Coil nr Plug ignition
MS3/3X - timed/staged injection - gear based boost control - traction control - water injection control - knock sensing.
Triple Widebands - Inner/Outer cylinders via sample chambers.

Taking the front subframe from the old car as it has the adjustable suspension setup. I might change the rear subframe, but the I might just move the Hi-Los over.

Paint job is going to be black with red and white graphics based on my pedal bike *smiley*

So, do you think that this paint job can be transferred to a car?

Not always my taste but it would be interesting to see how the graphic designer types would transfer that to the car. Perhaps some sort of wrap?

I don't mean to paint the bike on the car. Just use the general idea of black with red stripes and white details.

It should work well. Black wheels and red centres... Nice.

It will be good to see the power of the new motor

I run a supercharger and I don't care the TB is on the wrong side.
VEMS + 12 PSI + Liquid Intercooler = Small Bore FUN!

Thats not what i meant! Just that the graphic guys could apply some of the colour accents to bits of the car we wouldn't usually do on a mini?

Traction control I would hazard a guess at Rammie.

It's a vehicle speed sensor and you have just reminded me that I need to fit a sensor on a rear wheel so that I can use the traction control feature in the ECU. Thanks.

I'm erring towards a white roof and red/white graphics across the rear quarter and door on a black background.

Crappy weather means that I'm in the garage instead of on holiday riding my bike *frown*

A bit of progress, engine and front subby out and a quick cosmetic tidy around the engine bay.


Needs another coat of paint, but that'll do.

I've removed the steady bracket as the remote turbo downpipe needs that space, plus I want to route the clutch hydraulics away from the heat. PDWA will also be located on the bulkhead.

Started on the bodywork:



Lots of sanding and filling followed by rust inhibitor, etch primer and first coat of high-build primer.

Also primed the doors.

Next, dealing with all the minor imperfections, another coat of primer, then top coats.

Getting the paint on *smiley*

1st coat of colour:


Now 3 coats:


Not perfect but not looking for a show finish.

Following the BENROSS guide here:
http://www.turbominis.co.uk/forums/index.php?p=vt&tid=9446

Tomorrow, flat it back and apply the finish coats using high gloss thinners.

Yes, just realised it only a months or so since I dragged it out from the back of the barn.

We had been working on the 30 to get it mobile. Once it could be driven in and out of the barn with ease (seats fitted), then space became available to work on this one.

We've also got Sturgeo's Racing Flame sitting on my ramp since I welded it up 3 years ago. That's next years 250hp project.
