Some of you will be aware that I have been looking at a Mini convertible to tow behind the Winnie for some time. The time has been taken in trying to persuade Claire that we really should do it!

The Mini was built with a new shell by a friend who is an engineer. The car is truly immaculate and because it has been re built as a convertible it is pillarless. It also has all the extra strengthing required and has bars in the sides which the original Mini's never had.





We are off on Saturday for nearly a week - another achievement as we have only managed to go away for a weekend in the past! - and are borrowing the car for a couple of weeks. I am totally hooked and hopefully Claire will be!

Going to:

http://www.lyons-gate.co.uk/index.htm

If anyone is around and wants to pop in for a beer/wine/whisky or two!

Then the next job is to decide should I 'A Frame' or 'trailer it'?

Regards

Chris

Hi Linda,

Thanks for info on trailer. I will have to see if it will fit on a single axle smaller jobber.

Regards

Chris

Hi, my daughter has a mini convertable just like yours. Her partner races minis with Mighty Minis. Went to Mallory park for a day to watch them, a great day out with all kinds of racing from minis, saloon cars, F3 and would you believe a Citroen 2cv race?:whatthe::roflmto::roflmto::roflmto:

Thanks Ron, I keep looking at the forecast as well and looks good. The Mini is in use every day and I seem to have this grin like a Cheshire cat at the moment!

Daughter's Mini looks great, also a built convertible meaning it is pillarless!

Just got to get the A Frame, tow hitch and electrics sorted. I think someone put info on here explaining the bits needed.

Not sure if anyone is going to be at Shepton who does the work.
