Keep it Original? Mini 30

Post by ClearOfCloud »

I've had my 30 since about 2000 but in recently years she's been badly neglected and needs a big restoration...and a wedge of cash

Im finding it hard to part with it though so, while I figure out whether to pass it on as a project, or save and restore it I've a question.

Do I restore it as a 30, enhance it or completely change the look of it?

Actually, I've just realised I asked the same question here 4 years ago. I think that answers my question LOL

Apologies all....still I'll leave the picture here for everyone's enjoyment :-)

Original all the way. The burgundy Mini 30 is one of my favourite limited edition Minis.

Original all the way too. You can make some enhancements to improve driveability and reliability but always loved the colour.
