Name: Emma Rainer Car: Mini City E

I bought my Mini back in 2009, much to my dad’s shock at the state she was in when I got her home. We have man­aged to to­tally re­stored her – it’s taken a while as we’ve done the whole project our­selves, but she’s now ready for the world to see and hope­fully en­joy as much as we do! We started on the driver’s side and worked our way round. She’s had a new off­side wing, scut­tle cor­ner and un­der pan­els, in­ner and outer sills and jack­ing points both sides. There was no boot floor or rear valance, so that’s all new too. It’s safe to say she wasn’t in the best state, that’s for sure! We be­lieve the pre­vi­ous own­ers had used her for track­days so she was bashed about quite a bit too. We de­cided to paint her cream and bur­gundy, which was all done at home by my dad and I, and she has a black trim around the bot­tom and a thin black line be­tween the two colours. En­gine wise, she’s got a new ra­di­a­tor, al­ter­na­tor, ignition coil and distrib­u­tor. We’ve had the cylin­der head off for a clean and she’s had a full ser­vice, pass­ing her MoT test first time at the end of July.

Chunky 10- inch Re­voltion al­loys.

Emma's Mini is a two- tone beauty.
