Nice start Mike. I built this one a few years back as a replica of the one I used to rally.

Wiring the engine on this one is tricky as the dizzy is so small.

Further progress on the Mini. The chassis assembly is now complete although I think I should add seat belts before I install it into the body. By the way I'm using a new product that has become "all the rage" for us model builders, the Molotow chrome paint markers. The stick shift, steering wheel, velocity stacks, interior chrome trim and the chrome on the body:

You need to move the steering column from the subframe mount to between the pedals, otherwise you won't be able to fit the body, as the steering wheel will be in the way of the windshield

Beautiful start! Really like the chassis detailing and the interior is shaping up nicely.
