  • Fender Removal

    After a period of months of sitting I can finally work on the Mini for the next couple weeks. My first project is to take off the front fenders and nose panel. Looking around I don't see any obvious bolts holding things together. Any tips on how to get the stuff off?

    Chris, the front 'wings' are an integral part of the Mini body shell and not unboltable. To remove them you would have to cut them off with a nibbler, cutoff wheel or other cutting tool. If your's need to be replaced, you will need to be able to weld or get in touch with a body shop to attach the new ones.

    The illustration below shows what a 'raw' Mini shell looks like.

      Thanks Andrew, after I spent some more time looking at it I figured that it was welded together and not easily removable.
