Slow day at work
So i've now got the mini in to the workshop to commence restoration. I'm clear on every aspect of what i wish to achieve in terms of keeping patina, engine spec etc but i have a question needing opinion just to confirm if im a bit nuts or nearly normal
The car has original engine and running gear but the shell is a reshell (cooper s) but many years ago so the car is not totally original as it left the factory but then very few are. It has Heritage certificate and this was confirmed by BMH prior to purchase.
As a 68 mk2 s it has the larger rear lights but i really do prefer the smaller MK1 lights and if i'm going to go this route now is the time. I'm not sure if value will be massively affected and i suppose swapping back in the future won't be a huge job so should I go retro or should i stay faithful to the MK2 look?
Here's the MK1 rear
Here's the MK2
I know some on here have Mini's as well as Sevens so waddyer thoughts
