In Episode 8, we get a pair of nice doors, Nik gets annoyed with the boot lid and we both flip out over the front end panel work. Really hope you enjoy it. Please share! Thanks for watching.

@7:40 The left doorhandle is 2cm higher up the door than the right one? seriously, Nic's OK with that? I mean you can't see both sides at the same time, but still?

Does anyone know what those slotted hindges are called and where you can buy them. Google is failing me

Nylon attracts water, won't that make the hinge bind up?

Lots of lovely work. I didn't attempt anything even close to this when I was rallying; the standard cruel quip at the club for anyone doing major repairs after a big forest 'off' was: "If you're that keen to cut the buggers down, build yourself a chainsaw." ;-)

This is the first build series that i have watched where i havmt at any point thout to myself 'why on earth did you do it that way' this old fella might be completely insane to go through all this with that old mini but atleast has fabrication skillset if firmly grounded.

After seeing those first-fitment front end panel gaps, the Quality Assurance guy at British Leyland would have been: "Yeah proper job there fellas, get her to paint"

No worries, the missus won't be happy that she won't get to speak to me for weeks until I'm caught up on the build, but her first car was a mini, so I'm sure will understand 👍

Just cadged on to your channel recently. Great stuff. Looking forward to the rest and the sucking black hole of despair once I've caught up. This bit with the hinged front end frame is the cleverest so far. Nik, you work with steel like Coco Chanel works with silk. Well done lads!

The latch goes from the lid to the chassis, but how about going from chassis to lid?

At the risk of revealing my ignorance, is there any reason not to put a bit of sealant or rust inhibitor in the seam before folding the door skin over the door body/frame? Looks like a great place to trap moisture...

I stumbled upon this channel and love the fabrication, engineering, sense of humour and the editing is great too , I usually watch B is for build or goonz squad but they're not a patch on you clever people, I love how you don't take yourself seriously even though you're very clever engineers, thanks for the great vids.

The nylon peg at the base of the pipe inside the A panel reminds me of a similar attachment they use under flip “bonnet” (at the rear end) of the Ferrari F40, although Ferrari’s bonnet seems to have a lot less stability to it (probably due to weight reduction). Fantastic idea though and really well thought out! Your ability to solve even the smallest of possible issues is nothing less than phenomenal.

Does anyone have a tally of how much of the original mini is still there? Pretty certain it's just the boot lid and roof at this point.

you may have already figured this seeing as the vid is 4 years old, but just incase you havent, lidl do (occasionally) a nice set of interlocking impact foam floor panels for snowflake kids, thats what i use to put between benches and body panels ;)

seriously. you could have bought a completely restored one of these for 1/2 the price. And it might have actually been a mostly original car and not this brand new car.

If anyone can explain to me why air tools are worth using when you could just use an electric drill I'd be curious to hear it. Compressing air is only 4% efficient whereas electric motors are upwards of 60% efficient.

"What I've come up with, then, is this little lot. I'd love to show you how I got there, but I've eaten the prototype." Goddamnit all. Subbed! Also laughed one entire ass-cheek off, causing structural failure which caused me to fall off my chair. :D

I particularly love the attention to the panel gaps, presumably because the original manufacturers never gave it one-tenth of one thought. :)
