  • 1966 Morris Cooper S update 1/26/10

    Well the front end is looking more Australian.



    Vent hole is gone...cross support is spot welded for now, can add rivets later.


    Front subframe gap just right...

      Pretty nice gap...all metal, no filler



      Repaired skin looking pretty flat. Hammer and dolly and rasp work...oh my!

        Now for the right door. This thing was in pretty bad shape, which required a new skin and mods for OZ roll-up and door handle.



        Nice gaps...again no filler, all metal.




        Nice fit...

          Rear boot lid. 41 rust holes repaired in this baby! Looking good. There is an extra screw hole for the panel - assuming it's a factory flub.



          Lower hinge hole needed a little repair.


          Skin fold was bent back so it could be blasted, now tapped back into place.

              Bonnet is fitting pretty good. Still slightly lower than wings, but typical Mini fit.

                Future seat belt mount location??? Except for wheel flares, this will be the only non-stock mod that I'm adding to the car.
                Not sure where to put the outer brackets. Any ideas or pictures would be appreciated! Thinking about the rear pocket area or rear wheel well for the outer brackets.


                Cheers! Comments welcome...
