I's suggest maybe finding a donor/parts car. There is an Elf on ebay at the moment that you could probably get for cheap that has what looks like usable floors and front panels.

That's certainly a brave project (and I know about those! You should see my Clubman Estate!)

Anyway if you know Minis then you'll be able to do this one. No point trying to get floors from a donor car when new panels are easily available. Keep us updated!

This is hank my 1968 mk3 hornet  Empty Where to start?

Post  halfpenny68 on Mon May 14, 2012 6:26 pm

Well finally got round to taking a closer look at Hank today,and have ordered the inner wing panels for his drivers side from M Machines. Hopefully by next week he will have his wing on and then as the money for parts allow,he will get his new floors!!! Hopefully we will get some windows in him too,as we have no garage to store him in,just a cover for now to keep most of the rain off him.Its certainly gonna be a long old ride but fingers crossed we will get him sorted. lol! Still trying to sorce a bonnet and grill for him too,have polished up alot of his crome work,lights etc that came with him,ready for a day when he has panels to attach them to.

Bonnets & grilles do come up on ebay, in fact I saw a good set on a stand at a show last week, a Mini breakers in Stafford, don't recall the company name though.

What you were doing before was working. What are you doing differently?

It looks like PhotoBucket has changed their procedures a bit. I've posted an updated guide.
