We have a new project, it all happened quite quickly as John retired from his work and had a couple of quid burning a hole in his pocket, with the escort being a long term build, he wanted back into motorsport and a Mini in rallycross was the chosen one.

From its arrival in the workshop to the intended debut at Lydden on bank holiday monday there was less than two months.  Better get busy then.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Stripping down, junking all stuff that was not required but careful with wiring as chopping wrong wire may cause some problems later.
 

Ordering loads of bits, kept the postman was busy for a week or so.
 
 

 
Getting this cage in was first on list, never an easy task.

Then some paint. with two weeks to go.

 

 

Some of the bits the postman brought.

 

 

And then a few stickers to make it look prettybefore ot goes for an exhaust system.
