Body panels

Post by bc130 » Sun Nov 21, 2010 7:21 pm

Hi lads. I recently bought a 1989 mini city and i have completely stripped it to a bare shell. I am now in the process of cutting out the rust. I am just wondering where is the best place to buy panels. I need a scuttle panel, two sills and i also need the bottom piece of the front panel (if its possible to buy the bottom half). My front panel is grand from the bumper up but it has a few holes too many for patching below the bumper. Cheers.

I'v used Minispares and thought they were very good and rang them and they were fairly friendly and know what there on about
Getting old is a must but growing up is optional!

Sound out. I rang them today and they are very helpful alright and very reasonably priced too. Next job now is to place an order and go hatchet with the grinder :D Does anyone know if there is much work involved in replacing an outer sill.Is it as simple as drilling out the spot welds and pulling it off or is there anything to look out for.
