would you restore a 2002 mini one.

i've been considering restoring Sid my 2002 mini one.

Her issues

gearbox whine

OSR quarter panel full of poly filler!! only just found this out

OSR sill corroded

some minor paint imperfections.

some surface rust on the undercarriage

interior slightly worn


She was Born on the 9th august 2002 Would you guys consider this an early car worth saving?

It is an early (ish) car Henry but if you can afford to get a Y reg (2001) for non UK members then that's the car I would restore but if your ONE has sentimental value to you then the obvious choice is to restore that. Rear quarters aren't expensive but id imagine it's a lot of work to cut it out and weld the new one on!

The rear quarters are glued on with body mastic

Sentiment is eh. In an ideal world I would find a Y reg cooper

Remove the stripes on this one and it will be a cracker. New clutch and gearbox and a long mot. Its also cheap and I'm sure you would recoup at least half of the money by punting your ONE

Maybe in a few years .

In an ideal would I would have my ONE as a daily
And a Y reg Cooper as a project car.

but no enough moneh or space at the moment

I once had a rear brake shoe separate (bonded brakes) on a previous car many years ago, was stuck out in the middle of no where and no parts available so I used Araldite to glue the material back on, left it for an hour to dry (36C day) and next time I opened up the brakes was 2 years later when the material had worn down enough to warrant new brake shoes

If I were competent enough, I would.
It's the sense of satisfaction and the enjoyment of the 'project' that would be the motivating factor to me.
It's a bit like when I fitted that great sound system to my old R50, I really enjoyed the whole project.
It sounded & looked great, motivation indeed.
