Structural Welding and Re-Spray – Classic Mini – Another Car Saved Episode 3

This Classic Mini Red-Hot was a fairly local car to us, The owner of the vehicle got to know us through local clubs and word of mouth. Much of our work is mechanical repairs, Service work, Engine installations and smaller day to say work but we do have two bays in the workshop set aside for long term projects. These jobs are always fun as they use the full skill set. We get to build custom looms, weld, Bodywork and refit, Lots to sink our teeth into and the results always blow people away!

The Mini was brought to us, The external bodywork was tidy but tired however the structure of the vehicle was needing a lot of attention. With a small amount of investigation we uncovered a few previous repairs and large patches of corrosion. It was agreed that we keep the vehicle in, Make it structurally sound using new panels to remove the previous repairs and respray before a final rebuild.

What did we find? Were there any issues? Tune in next week to see the work as it unfolded, See the project grow / what was involved and the products that were used. Could this Mini be saved or was it too far gone?

For the next 21 days you can enjoy big savings on all Classic Mini Products available through A-Series Spares.
