Bonjour! I'm Chris. Currently restoring a 1989 Racing Green 998cc Austin Mini, and I absolutely love it.
I'm an Outdoor Instructor by Trade and although fairly useful in a workshop had no substantial experience working on cars. Similarly to most I'm a big believer in learning by doing (and sometimes getting it wrong). Hopefully I'll be able to keep you updated with whats going on.
Whilst restoring it, I have also gone and bought myself a 1988 Mayfair, bought stripped, bits missing and parts in boxes, with substantially more rust and holes in it than the racing green. (what was I thinking?!) Hey ho! I'll let you know when I jump into that one!
