Diary of an Mini Conversion,  Started November 2000.

I apologise in advance for the rambling nature of the diary, but it is just a collection of info & pics put together 'as it happened'. When the V8 is in the car then there will be a proper 'how to' guide, when we work out how we eventually did it !!!!

Most of the early stuff is just research and parts collecting, but since about October 2001 real construction has been underway.

Over Christmas 2002 the rebuild was completed and an MOT obtained.

2003 is the ongoing saga of test driving, fixing and some car shows.

2004 looks like it could be the year of the Pievan (well, maybe I will get back to it before the end of the year !)

2005 more likely to be the year of the Pievan.-- Doris sold March 2005, so it has to be the van now !

2006 the Pievan build continues...
