Condensing several decades of hands-on Mini experience into a restoration manual that works with and enhances existing repair manuals, Ian Ayre encourages the reader to evaluate realistically their own potential, equip a garage as restoration shop, and buy exactly the right sort of nasty old Mini. Showing two major semi-professional body restorations, on older and newer classic Minis, this manual explains how a full-scale rust rescue job can be successfully tackled, before looking at the aspects of restoration not usually covered in repair manuals, such as re-wiring, and rebuilding and retrimming seats.
