Name: Paul Gilbert Car: Mini 25 Location: Brentwood
Here’s our little Mini 25. We’ve owned it since April 2015, and since then we’ve had loads of work done on it, including a complete engine paint and overhaul, an entire new cooling system and new brakes all round. It’s soon to have new suspension and the brake hydraulics renewed back to standard. I’m trying to return it back to its original look, give or take a few mods like the walnut dash and alloys. The chrome work has all been renewed, the bumpers restored back to original Nimbus Grey, the front grille rubbed down and painted grey – even the rear number plate light holder and door handles refreshed. The past year has been testing, as there were many things put together incorrectly, but we think we’ve found all of them or at least most of them!
Now that’s one tidy engine bay! The bumpers are back to smart Nimbus Grey .
